VESA mount issues, forget portrait mode. 59hz max. Very good color and viewing angles.
March 9, 2017
Best Features: Color, sharpness, and viewing angles are impressive. High resolution photos look great, much better than 1080. In side-by-side comparison with a more expensive IPS monitor, the more expensive monitor usually wins, but not always. In some cases, the Samsung colors look more natural. Very light weight, about 10 pounds without stand. Worst Features: The VESA mount is poorly positioned at the very top edge of an already tall monitor. (See photo) Portrait mode isn't stable because the VESA mount is so far off center. Unless you have a very tall monitor arm, you'll won't have much vertical range. I worked around this problem by adding extra pieces ($30 each) that give 4" of additional height. Quality Issue: No dead pixels, but one of the two monitors I received cannot display UHD at 60hz as advertised. It took me a frustrating hour to figure this out, staring at a black screen. After lowering my graphics card output to 59Hz, it works fine. I never use the "Eye Saver" mode, which ruins color and contrast. Even with shortcomings, I enjoy these monitors.
