As a result I ended up being stuck in a loop of Samsung representatives telling me this monitor does not exist -- even when emailing them their own product page for this monitor, pictures of the monitor with a Samsung logo, receipts, and even photographs of the barcode and serial number. If you buy this the warranty is basically useless - hope you don't get stuck with a gigantic $1500 paperweight.
I got this monitor back from repair with about a week and a half turnaround in mid-July. After a few days of trying to figure out how to get this repaired I finally got on the line with someone who let me know that I had to contact Samsung Business-to-Business support to get this repaired even though this was indicated nowhere online and none of the representatives I called or emailed mentioned this before. Even checking now the support page for this product will redirect to consumer support which will get customers nowhere. While I was glad the repair was completed quickly and my original issue ~was~ fixed, they clearly pried apart the bezel to access it and the new panel has a distinct magenta glow from the lower right hand corner that covers about 4 square inches.
One caveat if you are considering buying this monitor: it is BIG. The dimensions out of the box are approximately 28 3/8" x 16.5". I have it set about 40" from my eyes in portrait mode, and I still have to look up a little to see the top. Don't plan to sit any closer than about 30" from the screen, and plan for it to use up a lot of desk real estate. I have a 72" x 40" desk, and I think this monitor and my 27" monitor are all that will fit.
One other reminder: plan to use DisplayPort cables to connect it. HDMI only gives 30 frames/sec, while DisplayPort gives 60. The screen is so big that you will want the faster refresh rate. Make sure your video card has a DisplayPort 1.2 connection and has at least 4 GB of ram. Also, make sure your power supply can support the high end video card. Mine didn't, and I had to order a new power supply to provide enough power to drive the MSI GeForce GTX 970 I bought to go with the monitor.
I'm seriously considering ditching my 27" HD monitor and using just the UD970 because there is no comparison when they sit side by side. I will update my review after I play some games on it.
UPDATED 10/14/14: I have reverted back to Windows 7 because Windows 8.1 scaling is not working well. Chrome looked awful. Moving a window between a 1980x1200 and the UD970 required resizing because the image on the smaller monitor was too big. Windows 8.1 tries to set the DPI for each monitor automatically, and it just does not work. On Windows 7, I have my text set to 160%, and that works for me. Everything is clear, crisp, and easily readable. If you have no choice but to use Windows 8.1, my recommendation is to use only UHD monitors with similar DPI. Apparently, application support for multiple monitors with different DPI is still in its early stages.
Updated 2/9/16: Windows 10 solved all the DPI problems. It allows different DPI settings for each monitor, and I currently have the U32 set to 150%, which makes the text in menus appear roughly 3/16" tall with the monitor about 32 inches from my face. I find that to be a comfortable viewing distance because the monitor is so large. If you need to remote into other computers, both Windows 10 and Windows 2012 Server on the remote computer will auto-match the DPI settings as long as you are using Windows 10 on the client side. Fallout 4 runs at "Best settings" at 3480x2160 with a 1GB nVidia Geforce GTX 970 with no problems at all. XCOM 2 runs at 2560x1440 at maximum settings as well.
While the display is gorgeous for gaming, I would not recommend paying double what you would pay for other 32" monitors if your sole purpose is gaming. As the name says, this is a monitor for professional artists and photographers who need proper color calibration and the ability to match their monitor to the printing devices they are using. There are distinct advantages to being able to see an accurate representation of what a picture will look like when it is printed. I now draw on an iPad Pro with canvases ranging from 40-64 megapixels. This is the only monitor of the 8 I have which can be calibrated to match the iPad and the giclee printer I use so everything stays consistent. That's why I bought it, even though I do use it as my every day, all purpose monitor as well. My only regret is that I didn't wait for the price to come down.
It's matte (which I prefer over glossy), but the coating is a lot better than on the older HP--you don't see all the little sparkles that you appear on a while background with more aggressive anti-glare coatings. They hit the sweet spot.
I use it mainly for photo editing and it's great for that. The factory color calibration is awesome and, again, the CLARITY! It's also a little bigger than my HP was, but only slightly because the bezels are very thin.
The USB 3.0 hub works without issue--I use it for a webcam and my Logitech keyboard's wireless dongle.
I used the HP at 100% scaling in Windows 8.1 and use this on at 150% I was a little leery about having to go with scaling because a lot of people seem to complaint about Microsoft's implementation in Windows 8.1, but at the distance I'm sitting, it's great--very comparable to normal scaling with a standard monitor.
I feel like this is one of those system upgrades that changes my whole computing experience.
