As this review is for the monitor I will give it the 5 stars it deserves. Yes, there is no Vesa mount capabilities, however, that is not a selling point for me. It may be for some buyers. The monitor itself has beautiful colors and a respectable refresh rate that pc gamers can take advantage of.

My warning to early adopters is the following: The only way you are going to get a decent refresh rate of 60hz in games is with multiple video cards. For those of you out there with Nvidia SLI, be warned! Nvidia currently has NO SLI DRIVER support for the 4k resolution. To reiterate, this monitor WILL NOT display 4k in SLI as of right now and it will max out at 1440p. There is a very active Nvidia forum thread with users complaining of this very issue. Nvidia has issued a statement that they know what the fix is and will implement it in the next driver update. However, they did not give an ETA. So, as of right now, this monitor is basically useless for gaming until Nvidia releases the driver update.

I also tested this monitor out on my Retina Macbook Pro. DO NOT buy a 4k monitor for your Macbook Pro until Apple releases 10.9.3 this fall. OS 10.9.2 (current version) does not scale well in 4k and looks absolutely terrible. Don't bother just yet.

*UPDATE* Nvidia driver update 337.61 does not fix the SLI issue with this monitor. The max resolution in SLI after installing 337.61 is still 1440p. Still waiting for a fix.

*UPDATE 2* It has occurred to me that the way I worded my review makes it seem like this monitor does not work with SLI at all. If you use this monitor with HDMI it WILL work with SLI at 4k however it will not go above 30hz.

I recently purchased this monitor to pair with my MacBook Pro(2015, 2.5ghz, with NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M) for my home office setup. I'm a Graphic Designer so I mainly utilize programs such as Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I am not a "gamer" so that wasn't an important decision in my purchasing this monitor. I mainly wanted a HD monitor that would render my artwork crisply and display general media at a high resolution. Also, I didn't want to fork over a "gee" to purchase the Apple ThunderBolt monitor which I personally think is way overpriced for what it is. I work on two of those monitors at my job and have found that the glare off the glossy surface can be very aggravating at times.

After doing a lot of online research I settled on the Samsung. I chose it for its display quality and also liked the physical design of the monitor. I purchased this cable to connect it to the laptop: Accell B143B-003J UltraAV Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort 1.2 Cable.

Having done all the research before purchasing this monitor I was aware of the "wobbly" stand issue. I have found that it's not a "deal breaker" for me. Although at this price it should be better designed. My monitor stand came slightly "skewed". You can see in the photo it's not lined up with the monitor(sorry for the bad phone pic). I spent a little time "bending" it to a more aligned position. Now the stand is basically plastic, but the piece on the monitor where the stand attaches is metal and I was able to bend it manually. Overall the display is very light and may require some additional support(velcro, etc.) to make it more stable.

On to the thing that really matters, the display. It's really good. Images are rendered beautifully and text, graphics, etc. are crisp.

I gave this monitor 5 stars because I personally love it. I bought it to play PC games at 4k resolution and built my PC specifically for that. I'm currently running a pair of GTX 780 Ti's which is more than enough to max out just about any game, ultra settings plus 2x aa depending on the game. There are definitely titles out there will exceed the 3GB memory on the GTX 780 or 780 Ti and I imagine that will only get worse as newer games are optimized for this resolution. If you're looking at this monitor for gaming, I would suggest a 780 6GB (in SLI for optimal performance), R9 290X (crossfire for optimal performance 4GB), or if you need the compute performance a GTX Titan would suffice but is not necessary and overpriced for just gaming alone. I even tried the monitor with one single 780 Ti just for testing purposes and was able to set Skyrim at ultra settings, everything maxed and there wasn't a single stutter, screen tear, and virtually no motion blur. That is impressive for me coming from a 120Hz panel.

This monitor is simply a plug and play set up, the native resolution was instantly recognized along with 60Hz and that was the case for both a single card set up and SLI. I read some people had issues with SLI but I assure you it works perfectly fine, nothing needs to be manually adjusted aside from activating the SLI setting in the Nvidia control panel. The latest Nvidia drivers work great with 4k. Something to note if you haven't done much research yet is that this monitor will not give you 60Hz with HDMI, you will only get 30Hz, for now anyway. I picked up a displayport 1.2 cable from Amazon as well just to make sure I had the proper compatibility to get 60Hz. The monitor does come with a DP cable but I wasn't sure of the version and didn't want to risk anything.
