    Crisp, accurate and sizeable.
    Being a 27" monitor with a WQHD resolution and highly accurate colour reproduction I can recommend this to both gamers and creators. My only gripe with this display is the default stand, it's enormous - insanely - you must buy a vesa stand if you plan to use this on a fairly short desk or one with an overhanging bookshelf. I have a very nice free standing vesa mounted stand that makes it fit perfectly and so eliminates the stand problem.
    Another potential issue is the lack of speakers but the monitor has two USB 3.0 ports and audio output so you can set your windows audio output to HDMI/DisplayPort and have it played through speakers powered by the monitor and delivered through the 3.5mm jack (my setup).
    The included monitor firmware is very good and allows you to adjust a range of settings and also use an inbuilt color tool to reach 100 Adobe sRGB, far greater depth here.
    This monitor was a leap from my 60hz 14” Laptop display as not only the resolution essentially doubled so was the screen size. I have found this display perfect for video editing, gaming and also for photoshop. For many this will be far out of budget but if you do find a decent saving, buy it.

    It's a good monitor for any user seeking for a multipurpose monitor. It comes with a VA panel that has great color contrast, and also enjoys 144Hz and also FreeSync 2. The stand itself is somewhat bulky, and may take up desk space, but there is an included VESA mount that will make life easier. You also get plenty of cables and option to use the monitor as a USB hub for other devices, such as keyboard or mouse.

    Beautiful colors and black values plus HDR support. I play a lot of competitive games (CS:GO, Rainbow Six Siege,Battlefield,COD) and this monitor delivers!

    There is nothing bad I can say about this monitor. The resolution, refresh rate, and response times are among the best available: even my fiancee thought the picture looks beautiful, and she doesn't play games. HDR is amazing in BF1, but that's the only game I have that uses the feature.

    There are tons of settings and presets, as well as the possibility for custom picture profiles. I've cycled through most of them at this point, and use one of the canned profiles so far. The box also included a bunch of cables and all of the hardware necessary for a wall-mount (except the mount itself).

    I was very torn on what monitor to get, it was either this one, or the LG 27GL850... And I'm very glad I chose this one. I am not able to notice the lag it most likely has (it is a VA panel after all). Very easy to setup and calibrate, I recommend using a certain professional review that explicitly states adequate calibration settings, albeit I'd say the panel is a bit too bright even when that setting is zeroed. But images are very crisp and fluid, and the difference in contrast is very noticeable when compared to the secondary monitor. Everything looks so lively. For 350€, this was a steal.

    Just buy it if you have the money there's nothing better especially if you have a amd GPU. But if you do have 2000 dollars to spend invest in a 4k 144hz monitor lol.

    from completed build My cheap build :-)

    I've had a really hard time picking a new monitor. I had a full HD TN 144hz 1ms Asus monitor before and I literally spent months on looking at monitors, checking reviews, buyer comments, yt videos etc and I almost went with an IPS gaming panel from LG but it costed 40 thousand HUF more and the only thing which was a difference is the panel type. I chose this because it has almost the same colour accuracy and IPS glowing isn't a thing on VA, however I was really afraid how the picture would look from different angles but it's just beautiful, don't have a single concern with it. I use it in cinema mode since it has the most vibrant colour profile, everything just pops out, eye candy for sure, fast as hell, g-sync works flawlessly and...yeah it's a beauty.

    Only once concern I can mention, the stand. It is enormous...I had to change desk for that to fit but then I decided to just mount it on the wall and put the stand back to the box because it just unnecessarily takes sooo much space. The wall mounting kit I bought was just 5 thousand HUF and it's a sturdy, stable one, full stainless steel so it wasn't really a big cost.

    Got it on prime day. Survived the trip to Japan through the mail. Its nice and smooth and the 2k resolution is nice. This is super nitpicky and probably unfair, but it would be nice to have Gsync instead of freesync, even at a higher cost.

    A VA panel that makes up for the common limitations of the monitors. Great colors, good response time, decent HDR implementation with a fairly high peak brightness and decent black levels. While it's not great, you won't find active dimming on many monitors in this price range, and it's still much better than those hdr400 displays lacking the feature all together. For years I avoided curved screens, but once it's on your desk you never notice it. No issues running standard freesync with HDR at the advertised 144 Hz. While the price is higher than I would normally go for displays, I chose it after I had returned a similarly specced Acer panel that was prone to manufacturing defects, and I have no regrets. Overall gives me a very good impression of Samsung displays.

    Nice monitor, but bit too expensive.
