    Must have high end monitor

    Amazing Monitor some of the best color accuracy I have seen from a screen outside of an OLED. The 4k and HDMI 2.1 was the selling point for me. Wanted something a little bigger then a 27". The only complaint is the weird mounting brackets if your not using original stand, I wasn't able to pull pull up manual on Asus website either.

    I just got this monitor for my PS5 and its insane. Highly recommend for 120fps gaming with HDR. Rebirth Island never looked so good, until a hip fire hacker gets you. Monitor is worth every penny though.

    Better than expected

    My Best Buy open box 32EP950 was said to be in excellent condition by Best Buy. It was an accurate description. There were a few fingerprints on the screen and some dust/styrofoam, however, once I cleaned it off, this thing passes for new. The monitor settings showed a lifetime use of around 48 hours. Everything was in the box.

    My PG27UQ was dying and literally completely died the day before I got this, so it was perfect timing. Although the PG27UQ was great, it was not built to last (especially with the cheap fan). The build quality on this 32EP950 actually seems quite good, so I think it will last a very long time so long as nothing is done to cause burn in.

    Compared to my PG27UQ, this monitor is very similar in most "normal" scenes. This is high praise, because I consider the PG27UQ the best monitor I have ever used. (And I have used a lot of them.)

    In most "normal" content, it's hard to tell the difference between the two. In very bright (mostly peak specular highlight situations), it is clearly not as bright as the PG27UQ (of course) and some content mastered for 1000 nits can get blown out without the correct settings to adjust PQ clip, which mitigate this to a tolerable level. Obviously, extremely bright all screen content (like flash the screen 1000 nits) triggers the ABL, and it is clearly not as bright as the PG27UQ. This is just the reality of OLED, however. You are trading amazing dark performance for lesser bright performance.

    That said, dark content is definitely superior to the PG27UQ, but, honestly, not to the extent you would expect. The difference is definitely there, though.

    The one other thing I will say about that, however, is that because this is OLED, halo/bloom is 100% non-existent. Dark scenes that challenge FALD monitors like the PG27UQ in high halo/bloom situations (like star fields, particle effects, etc.) are vastly better on this monitor, of course. "Normal" dark content is better in comparison, but not vastly so.

    That just speaks to the great ability of the PG27UQ to render dark content, however. This thing would obliterate a non-FALD TN/VA/IPS monitor in basically ALL dark content situations. I mean, absolutely destroy it.

    Out of the box, Windows is DEFINITELY not setup with OLED in mind. All SDR content (even when Windows is switched to HDR mode, actually) is dull and lacks color with default settings. Like REALLY dull. Adjusting the Nvidia control panel brightness, contrast, and digital vibrancy settings, however, VASTLY improved this situation and the desktop now looks very similar to how the PG27UQ presents it at default settings. (Brightness at 55, contrast at 60, and digital vibrancy at 70, Windows HDR desktop enable) SDR content, like an SDR video for example, are also vastly improved with these settings.

    You may find adjusting the separate Windows HDR brightness settings (this is a totally different, unique, Windows HDR brightness setting separate from the Nvidia control panel) also may be to your benefit.

    Compared to the PG27UQ, this thing is THIN and LIGHT. Probably the thinnest and lightest 32" monitor I have ever seen. Obviously, not having a fan is nice too. I didn't even realize how loud my PG27UQ fan had until the monitor finally died and turned off.

    I do miss the fast refresh rate of the PG27UQ. Definitely feel it. PG27UQ has long been discontinued, however, and it seems the new 32" PG32UQX is lacking in halo/bloom performance, so I'm moving to OLED for now.

    So what is my conclusion on this thing? It's pretty impressive, honestly, for the first real OLED monitor on the market, apart from lack of fast refresh, no HDMI 2.1, and not so great peak brightness (only in comparison to 1000 nits monitors like the PG27UQ, though). If my PG27UQ had not died, I would probably return it from a price/value proposition until prices come down. I'm here with a dead discontinued PG27UQ next to me, however, so this thing is a keeper.

    USBC Dock Display: 1 Ring (Cable) To Rule Them All

    Summary: This is the best possible work from home monitor available if your laptop has a DisplayPort capable USC port or a Thunderbolt 3 or 4 port (all Apple Laptops with USBC/Thunderbolt Ports).

    Purchased in July 2021 from Best Buy, I've now owned this monitor for 4 months. I work in Tech (Silicon Mountain, Colorado) and while my company's HQ campus is 20 min away, COVID has us working from home indefinitely.

    The U2720QM uses an In-Plane-Switching panel. This means you get accurate colors off-angle. If a monitor you're considering is NOT an IPS panel then you should make sure it's curved. Colors wash out non centered viewing angles for VA type panels and the curvature corrects the amount of color wash-out. VA Panels enjoy deeper blacks and higher display brightness. I owned a Samsung curved display and it ran so hot that the display film burned away at the edges and i had to return it. The only other reason you should buy a curved monitor is if you personally just like it (there's no benefit ergonomically and they take up a crazy amount of desk space due to their thick depth of size). Professionals always use IPS displays. Apple uses IPS in all of their non-OLED products.

    Why Dell?

    -Don't just buy a "Dell" Monitor. Buy a "Dell Premier Color" Monitor like this one is. Dell Premier Color monitors have the absolute best quality control, 2nd to NONE. The odds of you getting a dead pixel, or color inaccuracies out of the box are cut in half compared with other manufactures. Dell color calibrates your "Standard" mode in factory to sRGB color space. BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY - Dell's premier color monitors come with a pixel guarantee. If you get a dud, Dell will quick ship you a replacement in the first 120 days with no hassle. I did this with my U2713HM in 2011 and it was impressive customer service.

    Paired with my brand new HP Z Book Firefly 14inch G8 - 1 cable provides power (90w), display (4k @60Hz 24bit with HDR off and 30bit with HDR on) , and USB extension (enables monitor USB ports). I also have the MacBook Pro M1 as my personal computer. The M1 does even better with this display - outputting 4k 60Hz 30bit with or without HDR. Also works with my M1 iPad Pro but only mirrors at the awkward iPad aspect ratio due to Apple's iPad OS feature set (or lack there of). Charging and USB ports work perfect with iPad M1 and i expect future iPad OS updates to support "Display Extension" in addition to mirroring.

    Quirks:

    1. Windows only allows 8bit OS color via USB-C unless HDR is turned on. This experience is specific to Intel graphics with Thunderbolt 3 and i expect AMD to support 8 bit *with dithering, or 10bit. If you have a discrete nVidia graphics card that has its own USB C port, i expect it to support 8bit *with dithering or 10bit color. I'm only speaking about using USBC and not DisplayPort 1.4 connection on monitor.

    2. The Display stand is sticky. All of my other dell monitors have had butter-like smoothness when adjusting height or rotation. This monitor is sticky and hard to adjust. It's awful, really.

    Reasons NOT to buy:

    1. You're a content creator with a real content creator's budget and you want to edit HDR content.

    -Just buy the Apple XDR Display (or the smallest LG OLED TV) - the Dell 20QM might advertise HDR as a feature but with 400nits of brightness, it's the worst possible implementation of HDR. 10bit Color only supported with HDR turned on in Windows. Wait for microLED displays to take root at Dell or Buy the Apple XDR. Additionally, there are better and more accurate sRGB monitors out there.

    2. You only have a desktop

    -Save money and get a non-USBC docking version of this monitor for like $350 or buy a display with other more useful desktop features like higher refresh rates, VRR, and HDMI 2.1

    3. You have poor eye-sight.

    -If you struggle to read text in 4k @ 125% Scaling in Windows, i cannot recommend this monitor. As soon as you scale to 150% or higher, you're just using a 1440p display with a bit better pixel density. Save money and buy a 1440p (2k) monitor.

    4. You have a thunderbolt dock already.

    -A CalDigit TS3+ Thunderbolt 3 dock is a fine option. The thunderbolt 3 passthrough will support DisplayPort 1.4 even though the physical display port option on this dock is only 1.2

    5. You don't have a USBC with DisplayPort Logo port or Thunderbolt 3/4 Port on your laptop.

    -Dont waste your money. Wait for the microLED version of this display to come out and then upgrade your laptop and your monitor.

    Good monitor when it works

    It took me a while to figure it out but the ritual I have to go through every morning is to start up my MacBook, make sure the display preference is set to “Default for Display” then close the laptop, turn on the monitor, connect my MacBook, then press any key on my Bluetooth keyboard to make it connect. If I don’t do it exactly this way the monitor image is zoomed in and laggy with weird flickering horizontal lines when I mouse over the right side of the screen (see attached). I also can’t launch Photoshop unless the monitor is connected and working properly, otherwise photoshop images fill with bright green when zoomed in.

    The fit and finish is not amazing, the frame near the under screen buttons is not really tight and flush (see attached) but the image is good and with some fiddling with the onscreen menus you can get it pretty sharp and bright.

    Aside from it’s odd quirks, it’s a good monitor, and the extra real estate makes doing my work much easier than on the cramped laptop screen.

    A perfect companion to my Macbook Air

    I finally made the move from a desktop to a laptop, but I didn't want to give up the large screen. The Dell U2720QM fit the bill. It's a beautiful monitor with a thin bezel, minimal branding and great display. The only connection you need is to your laptop is the USB-C cable. All your peripherals can be plugged into the multiple ports in the back of the monitor avoiding the need for a hub. The result is a clean, easy to use workstation (see photo).

    Great 4K IPS monitor with USB-C.

    I have had this monitor for close to three weeks now. I have owned a couple of ultra sharp monitors from Dell in the past and they were all great. This one is no exception. Spec wise it is a pretty good IPS monitor. It is 4K, 1300:1 contrast ratio and 350 cd/m2. That just pretty much means it is bright, you get a bitter better black level performance than your typical IPS monitor and text will look nice and sharp. The reflection coating does a decent job. The stand is small but doesn't feel flimsy. The screen is quite adjustable as you can see in the picture. I have it connected to a M1 Mac mini via USB-C and it has been working well. Just to note, I believe connecting the monitor via USB-C drops the data rate of the USB ports to 2.0 speeds. The buttons can be a bit finicky to press but not terrible. My panel is thankfully pretty good with backlight bleed not being an issue. Before this Dell I tried out a LG 4K IPS monitor which was on sale for around $400. It wasn't as bright, the stand was not height adjustable (my fault for not realizing this) and the contrast ratio was noticeably a bit lower. Overall, while a bit more on the pricier side I'd say this is a great monitor and Dell does have a nice 3 year warranty on their Ultra Sharp monitors as well.

    Great Monitor but terrible menu buttons

    I wanted a multipurpose monitor that would handle 4k video as well as sharp imaging for doing spreadsheets and documents. I had been using an older Dell Ultrasharp so I thought I would upgrade to the newer version. The new Ultrasharps have a very thin bezel which is nice when you are using multiple monitors. The images quality at 4k is very sharp. The colors are rich and the displayed images have great contrast levels. I watched several 4k videos and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the image and its intensity. The white screen used when working on documents doesnt show any bleeding on the edges or greying variations across the monitor. The entire display seems to be fairly uniform in its whiteness which is great. This monitor comes with several usb ports, a full size display port and a hdmi port and Dell does supply an hdmi and a usb cable. I love the adjustability of the monitor due to its stand. You can rotate the monitor or move it up or down to perfectly align with your work space. The biggest downside to this monitor is the buttons that are mounted under the front right hand of the display. You need to press the buttons to access the menus and to select a different source. These buttons are extremely difficult to press at times, I found using my finger nail vs my finger tip helps. If you are planning on using this monitor with multiple computers be prepared to deal with some frustration with the buttons.

    Great monitor

    I have been very happy with this purchase. It is an attractive monitor with a great 4K display. I wanted something fairly simple. It is predominantly used for work. Gamers probably would look elsewhere but it is perfect for my needs. If you want a good-looking monitor to give you a little more workspace, it is hard to beat this one. The colors were accurate right out of the box. The ability to rotate is a nice touch as well, but I personally didn't need it.

    Superb, Out-of-Box Ready for Serious Photo Editing

    Out of the box, this monitor has an excellent color gamut, great color gradients, excellent grayscale. Text and line precision are also superb. It is my opinion that this monitor is just as good for creative studio and photo editing applications as units costing significantly more money.

    External monitor for MacBook Pro

    Fantastic monitor. Bought for my wife, who wanted an external monitor to connect to her MacBook Pro. I just ordered two for myself for my work-from-home setup. VERY convenient that the USB-C cable replaces the power and HDMI cable. And the adjustability of the monitor makes it very comfortable to use.

    Great for Mac Mini owners

    I got this to work with my new Mac mini that I got for Christmas. Going to law school in August, I wanted something which was extremely clear and going to be seamlessly compatible with all my other apple technology and I got my wish with this machine. I love the look of it. It's just the right size, not too big, not too small. The metal frame at the bottom not only keeps it sturdy in place, but it also looks really clean and pairs beautifully with the Mac mini on my desk. It is fast and easy to set up, the quality is fantastic, and I absolutely love that it is able to even automatically adjust the brightness for the room conditions just like my MacBook Pro does, as well as harness the power of the True Tone feature. I went to Best Buy today and looking at the Apple retina displays on the iMacs present in the store, I would definitely say that this screen bests most of the iMacs in clarity and precision. Highly recommend for other Mac mini owners. However, it is expensive as heck lol--but I say worth it.

    This monitor is it!

    Got this monitor as an open-box item, with a (excellent) condition description. And that it was! This monitor had to be made with the Mac mini in mind. It had everything I was looking for in a monitor for my Mac mini. I've never bought such a pricey open-box item. But this monitor was an exception. I couldn't find it anywhere else, but at an Apple store. Which I didn't want to pay full price for. Hence, the open-box option. Apple seems to have an exclusive deal with LG for this monitor. Maybe that's why it was sold out everywhere I searched, except at Apple. I guess everyone who may have bought the Mac mini, also decided to buy this monitor. Overall, I am satisfied with this excellent monitor purchase.

    Great So Far!

    I purchased this monitor as a second display to work in tandem with my 34" LG Ultra-Wide. I needed more screen real estate when working on video and motion graphic content, and this does just that! Colors seem to be accurate and the HDR output is quite impressive. My setup isn't the "cleanest" (looks a little wonky) with both a curved and flat panel, but I will say adding this has without a doubt improved my workflow. At 4K resolution I could see this being a fine single display as well.

    The only slight negatives are that the power cord and display port cables are quite short. And I wish it was curved. Being such a large display, it really looks best when sitting about a foot further back than my desk sits. It isn't this way with my 34" curved monitor below it.

    But overall, at this price point, I honestly don't think you can go wrong here.

    Great value for a 4K Free Sync 32 inch IPS monitor

    This review is for a retail purchased LG - 32" Model 32UN650-W UltraFine IPS UHD 4K Monitor with FreeSync

    First of all I am a retired Wedding Photographer and I have critical experience with good quality monitors. I bought this monitor for my recent foray in to Flight Simulators. I have been using a 27 inch IPS 4K monitor for my photography work, which has 168 pixels per inch. Impeccable detail and sharpness. So on advice and reviews for gaming monitors, I bought a $400.00 32 inch Curved VA panel QHD (2560 x 1440P) 165 hz Free Sync monitor for my flight sim rig. First thing I notice is that it isn't sharp. Contrast and color start to degrade towards the edge. Got rid of it. So next I buy a $1700.00 38 inch Curved 3860 x 1600 IPS 144hz G-Sync gaming monitor from Best Buy. That much money, it has to be great, Right? Not so. Being an IPS panel, it is the same edge to edge but it still is underwhelming. Cockpit detail isn't sharp, colors are dull. I hate to return anything, but I can't justify $1700.00 for a monitor that is going to make me miserable every time I turn it on, so I returned it to Best Buy and they were most gracious.

    Here is the problem with monitors. Pixels per inch matter. The experts tell us we don't need anymore than 110 pixels per inch. It isn't so. You may get better frame rates on a lower resolution monitor, but at 110 pixels per inch, you will never get anything that actually can be considered great quality.

    So I reassessed my situation, which is Single player Flight sims. 60 Frames Per Second is all you need in a non competitive flight sim and it takes a really good system to average 60 FPS in 4K with a flight sim set at high quality settings anyway. After a lot of research I found this LG - 32" Model 32UN650-W UltraFine IPS UHD 4K Monitor with FreeSync. Yes it is only a 60hz panel. Free sync on this monitor works really well with my RTX 2080Ti. I just set the maximum frame rate in Nvidia Control Panel to 59 FPS as I do have the ability to exceed 60 FPS a lot of the time and that would cause stuttering. When my frame rates drop into the 50s G-Sync in the Nvidia driver takes over and it is smooth as butter even if I drop into the 40s. Now for the best part. Beautiful color, sharp detail. All my cockpit gauges are sharp. The 135 pixels per inch that this monitor delivers may not seem like a lot over the 2560 x 1440 110 pixels per inch on a 32 inch monitor, but it is a big time difference.

    The monitor has a good stand. adjustable for height and tilt forward to back. Nice joystick control for the OSD. Thin bezel. It is a flat-non curved monitor. After trying two curved monitors, I really can't say I see any real advantage. They look nice, but I think it is more gimmick than advantageous.

    The only con I have is the stand. The lowest that the bottom of the panel will go is about 5 inches above the surface it sits on, but it can be VESA mounted on a monitor stand. I like to be looking down on my monitor, but on the other hand it gives you room to put a sound bar under the monitor although it actually has pretty decent speakers. Also if you are a flight sim person and use your keyboard sparingly, your keyboard can sit on top of the monitor legs under the monitor leaving you lots of room for your HOTAS and Throttle.

    Another plus is that this is a good all around monitor. It has good color fidelity out of the box. I calibrated mine, but I gained little from the factory calibration. Lots of viewing mode settings.

    So if you are looking for a good 4K, Free Sync capable IPS 32 inch 60hz monitor, I don't think you can find anything better for it's $500.00 price.

    Color shift

    This is a great monitor if you don't use a white background. There is noticeable color shift, the left half of the screen is warmer than the right. Around all edges, there is fairly dramatic light falloff which looks like a darkening of the image about 1" wide.

    That being said, when using the monitor for work or even photos, everything looks great, just not solid backgrounds.

    Have another 27" 4k monitor from LG and it only had the light falloff on the bottom, but there is no color shift like this.

    Great with iMac, dual monitor.

    This monitor works great with a new 21.5 inch iMac, connected with a USB-C/thunderbolt to display port cable.

    Many reviews state that it's not bright enough. I am running it at 50% to match the brightness of the iMac, anything more is really too much.

    My wife is doing interior design and autocad type classes, various programs. This monitor works great for all of it. Images and 3D renders are nice and crisp. Scans even look just like the genuine article. When the sound comes through, the speakers sound pretty good, rich.

    I like the joystick control. It's easier than buttons and menus and it's hidden. (Last photo.)

    I reccomend this monitor for a dual monitor setup with an iMac for uses like stated above. I'm sure its great for spreadsheets too. I don't know anything about gaming, other reviews speak to that.

    Good monitor

    The monitor has vivid color, good uniformity, and relatively little color shift due to viewing angle. I'm not sure whether the color is accurate or not. But in terms of gaming and office work, uniformity and the wide viewing angle are more important and more noticeable. There are many setting options, including gamma and color temperature. Overall, I'm satisfied with the image quality and the color settings of the product. Also, this monitor is g-sync compatible (I use a gtx1060).

    I really wish it allows me to customize the shortcut button. It wakes up slower than a Dell U2720Q. The manufacturing quality is ok, but I can see >1mm gaps. The speakers are poor. They have no bass, and the voice and background music mix together. Lastly, wall-mount users should look for a flexible and longer DP cable for shorter wall clearance.

    Overall, I'm satisfied with this monitor in terms of the image quality and its price. It's a good budget 4k monitor.

    Very Nice IPS Monitor

    I primarily own monitors with 24” VA or TN panels with high refresh rates for gaming. I also own a couple of 27” IPS 1440p monitors also with high refresh rates catered for gaming. What I don’t own is a monitor that produces high color accuracy and detail for normal viewing cases such as photography, movies and anything else that doesn’t really need 144+hz of refresh. So the ASUS ProArt PA279CV 4k monitor is a great median for standard viewing and 4k gaming, I would say. I’m not a professional photographer, videographer nor graphic designer; I’m actually a software developer who does use 4k monitors at work, and I’d love to have one of these for @ home use.

    First Impressions:

    THe PA279CV has the semblance of many monitors offered today, with thin bezels on top and on the sides, and a bit of a chin to round it out. The monitor controls are actually in front of you as opposed to underneath the chin. I think much of the chin could have been lessened if the controls were tucked underneath. Also on the chin is an imprinted ruler that spans across the entire bottom to coincide with the built-in QuickFit overlay that will allow you to see an actual size of your creation. The entire monitor is plastic to protect the internals and the stand is a hefty metal base with gray plastic to cover it. With the stand attached, this has to be the heaviest 27” monitor I have ever owned.

    Usage:

    The PA279CV accepts the following I/O --

    DisplayPort over USB-C x 1

    DisplayPort 1.2 x 1

    HDMI(v2.0) x 2

    USB Hub : 4 ports USB 3.1

    Earphone Jack

    The monitor can be raised or lowered, swiveled and tilted, and changed from landscape to portrait, all on it’s original stand. If I had a pair of these monitors, I would have one landscape and the other portrait, side by side.

    I tried both DP1.2(PC) as well as HDMI2.0(gaming console) for display input, and I was also able to utilize the USB-C connection on my PC to activate the available USB3.1 ports. I didn’t have a means of driving video over USB-C during this review.

    Performance:

    Out of the box, I immediately saw the differences between this monitor and my gaming monitors; photos on the gaming monitors are very washed out, but on this monitor it is totally opposite. Photos appear slightly on the warm side, but this is probably because I’ve been so used to having my monitors’ settings on the cool side. There are several ProArt color gamut presets, but enabling HDR from within the Windows 10 Display settings locks the monitor to HDR. Outside of HDR, you’re free to change the settings that suit your needs. For me, HDR was the best balance of contrast and brightness, entrusting Calman with their color accuracy. I’m definitely not an expert in terms of color accuracy nor familiar with the specific color gamuts, but my eyes are definitely seeing a difference via the “seat-of-the-pants” approach. 4k just looks gorgeous on this monitor.

    Gaming:

    Although the refresh rate is 60hz, it does support variable frame refresh between 40hz and 60hz. Many might think that’s a bit low of a refresh, especially for 4k HDR gaming, but I actually think otherwise; the gaming consoles and gpus of today are still trying to keep up with 60hz even as they push the 120hz initiative.

    Issues:

    Black level uniformity is not great. There are hot spots on every corner of the monitor and can get very distracting. Honestly, I don’t know why it’s the case. I’m viewing the monitor in a dark room and can clearly see the hot spots. My other 1440p gaming monitors’ black uniformity is much better. If dark images, videos or anything dark is your thing, this might bother you a lot. I docked a star here.

    Overall, this is a great monitor in my book.

    Worth it if you need accuracy

    I’ve done a ton of research on monitors over the last 2 months trying to find the right one. Please remember this is just my opinions.

    Situation: I am a graphic/web design student and manage a website professionally for a major organization, I do have some financial freedoms, this monitor is not cheap and not needed for students but a huge bonus to have.

    I originally was looking for an ultra-wide (45”+). However, if you need color/image accuracy, bigger is worse. There is no right size but 24-32” is a good range. I went with the 27” which is perfect for my design, I run a 2nd monitor for my other programs through my work computer, it’s not ideal for “non-technical designers”. If you want a big screen for multi-tasking and other stuff, don’t spend the money on this. If you are looking for color/image accuracy, I think you found what you are looking for.

    System: I am running a 2020 M1 Mac Air w/ 16g ram, connection is through the usb-c port (touch on that later).

    Projects completed: I recently finished up some work and have completed about 3 illustrator projects and 5 photoshop projects since my purchase. I was working off my 13” screen and an HDMI connected 27” Acer. When I opened a few projects I had been working, I ended up changing all of my colors that weren’t part of the style guides, man was it off on the Acer.

    This Asus has everything a designer needs. RGB and CYMK are both very accurate, the cymk is not perfect but, you are looking at print colors on a screen. 4K is beautiful. I did hook up my Xbox series s and it looks good but doesn’t have frame rate needed so meh there but like I said, this is a monitor for designers. Movies play great through both HDMI, DP, and USB-C. I am still trying to get used to the board in this monitor charging my computer and other devices, It acts as a connection hub. Basically, this monitor hit every need.

    However…….

    If you plan on using usb-c connections (recommended), you will need to be a little tech savvy. These monitors do not work from the manufacturer with Apple. They just don’t. But. You can go to the asus website, download the firmware and drivers, install the drivers through commander, then move firmware to a thumb drive, plug it in to a usb 2.0, hit a sequence of monitor buttons which opens the hardware up for service. You run the file on the thumb drive through the monitor and then boom, it works. I typed this all out because it seemed daunting, but I was a first time to by following the directions step by step. Now, if you are looking at a monitor like this, you probably have the capacity to do what I just described, it’s worth it and will work fine with HDMI/DP until you do this. It seems like a big deal and I wish they did this at the factory but I know more about my monitor and how to troubleshoot it locally as opposed to shipping it back, waiting, and possibly being denied. It’s a pain in the butt but trust me, it’s totally worth the 15min it took.

    Overall, I’m very satisfied and would recommend this to designers/artists (digital). I would not recommend it to anyone outside of that field. If you are a student on a budget, you’ll get there eventually and be just fine.

    Color accurate 4K panel that is also a dock!

    The Asus PA279CV monitor… a truly great monitor for color accurate workflows. Out of the box, you get the following:

    - monitor (4K HDR, 3840 x 2160 resolution)

    - base stand

    - arm (connects monitor to base)

    - power cable

    - DisplayPort cable

    - USB Type C cable

    - HDMI cable

    - quick start guide to setting up

    In terms of port selection, the monitor provides:

    - 2x HDMI 2.0 ports (capable of 4K 60FPS)

    - DisplayPort port (capable of 4K 60FPS)

    - USB Type C port (capable of powering devices up to 65W + 4K 60FPS)

    - 3.5mm headphone port

    - 4 USB Type A ports (these ports are functional when connected via USB Type C, acting as a hub/dock)

    Setting up the monitor is quite easy. You can get away without using the quick start guide if you know how to plug cables in. One thing to note is that next to the power input is a power switch — for me it was in the “off” position, and because i didn’t look under the monitor initially when plugging in the power cord, i missed it… This lead me to not be able to power on the monitor from the front facing interface button and lead me to believe the monitor was dead on arrival (i was able to swap out the power cable with others i had to deduce this). Upon closer inspection, i finally saw the power switch and toggled it to the “on” position, and from there i was able to power on the monitor with the front facing power button. After that debacle, there were no other issues with setup and i was able to connect the monitor to my laptop, desktop, and gaming consoles.

    Connection of choice for me was via USB Type C. The main reason for this is because i have a MacBook Pro 16”, MacBook Air M1, and a Dell XPS 13. Connecting via USB Type C, i was able to charge each device and utilize the USB Type-A ports of the monitor to connect my peripherals (e.g., mouse, thumb drive, etc.). When viewing the power settings on my MacBook Pro & MacBook Air (via System Information > Power), i see the monitor is providing 65W, which matches the 20V x 3.25A listing of the port. This is great for my lower powered devices but not so much for my MacBook Pro 16” especially if i’m running computationally expensive software which will drain the battery faster than it is being charged from the monitor. Please note, i did see user “spezaled" mention that his MacBook Pro was not able to be powered by the monitor, but this was not the case for me as i was able to connect and power up two separate MacBook devices. Aside from that, the DisplayPort & HDMI ports work as expected and i am able to connect to my desktop & gaming consoles to achieve 4K 60FPS.

    Colors on this monitor are very good. I am not a photographer or designer, however based off of comparisons to my other 4K monitors (e.g, LG 27UL600-W and HP U27), the Asus takes the cake with its color reproduction. By default, there are many color presets provided for different viewing experiences and if those don’t suite you, ProArt Palette can be used to manually set the color profile via the monitor settings.

    The inbuilt speakers are decent, but do not expect much from them. They clearly lack in bass and mids. The speakers from my MacBook M1 Air and Dell XPS 13 clearly blow it out of the park, but if you are simply listening to audio books or podcasts, they will suffice given you don’t have too much ambient noise. This isn’t really a dealbreaker for me though since i typically use bluetooth headphones or dedicated speakers but i did want to bring it up in case it could be a concern for other users interested in purchasing this monitor.

    Overall, i would say this is a feature full monitor and is certainly worth it’s asking price. I really love the fact that it is a USB Type-C monitor, in that it can also act as a charging dock for both my Windows & Mac laptops. I highly recommend this for anyone that requires a color accurate panel and dock!

    A high quality and high resolution monitor

    Verdict. I love the size and image quality of this monitor. The connection options provide fantastic convenience and versatility. It is the best monitor I have owned.

    First impression. All components provide a feel of high quality, including the provided cables. Of note, I very much appreciate that the monitor comes with three different cables (USB-C, HDMI, and Display Port). Assembly was intuitive and easy. The upper and side bezels are very thin. The stand adds to the footprint of the monitor but the added functionality of being able to raise/lower the screen, and move it to portrait, makes it worth. The base of the monitor is quite large, but I don’t mind because I can organize pens and post-its there.

    Image quality. I am using this monitor with an Omen gaming laptop with an RTX 2070 card. The image quality is fantastic! While I can’t verify that I am getting full 4k 3840 x 2160, I am completely happy with my current resolution results. I am also very pleased with the colors; they are bright and vibrant. I can easily tell the difference between my cheap monitor and this Asus monitor on the color and brightness, even to the point where I want to get another one of these so the colors and brightness match. Right now, I am not using this monitor for gaming because I love using it in portrait mode for work tasks, so can’t evaluate its gaming performance.

    Features. I love that this monitor has connectivity options for USB-C, Display port, and HDMI. The monitor also has USB ports in the back of the monitor that are very convenient for charging earphones, mouse, and keyboard. The monitor has integrated speakers but they are just ok. My Omen Laptop speakers are better, but in a pinch, the monitor speakers are nice to have. I like the menu implementation: the physical buttons are easy to use, navigation through the menu is nice, and the presets are great.

    What I love.

    - Great resolution

    - Great brightness and colors

    - Thin bezels

    - Fantastic stand; I love the ability to raise or lower the height of the monitor, and to easily be able to rotate to portrait mode

    - Useful menu presets

    - High quality monitor and accessories; it’s the best monitor I have owned

    What I don’t love.

    - The monitor has a big footprint, it may not work for everyone depending on your desk space

    Conclusion.

    Amazing monitor: fantastic resolution, color, brightness, and performance. This ASUS monitor is not cheap but if you are looking for a capable and versatile 27” 4k monitor, this is a great option.

    An excellent addition to the ProArt Line!

    The Asus PA279CV – 27” 4K IPS Monitor is an excellent addition to the Asus ProArt line of monitors that are oriented at Professional Monitor needs including Photography, Filmmaking & Video Editing, Animation & Game Development, Architecture & Engineering, Product Design & Manufacturing, and Graphics & Art. As a user of 3 ProArt monitors for the last 11 years that are still going strong - yes that is correct the same monitors for the last 11 years - I was extremely pleased to have an opportunity to review this new addition to the series.

    This review will be done in 3 parts – key features and specifications, usage impressions, and pros/cons:

    Key Features:

    The key features of this monitor are excellent. The basic features are as follows this is a 27”, 4K (3840x2160) IPS monitor with 1x DisplayPort v1.2, 2 x HDMI (v 2.0), and 1x USB-C inputs with a 178° viewing angle and a 16:9 ratio. Other specifications of interest include:

    • International color standard 100% sRGB and 100% Rec. 709 wide color gamut

    • Calman Verified with factory calibrated for excellent Delta E < 2 color accuracy

    • Extensive connectivity including DP over USB-C with 65W Power Delivery, DisplayPort, HDMI, USB hub with 4 downstream ports.

    • Adaptive-Sync technology (40~60Hz) to animated content with fast action and eliminate screen tearing

    • ASUS-exclusive ProArt Preset and ProArt Palette provide numerous adjustable color parameters.

    • Ergonomic design with +35° ~ -5° tilt, ±45° swivel, ±90° pivot and 150mm height adjustments for a comfortable viewing experience

    • The monitor also has 2Wx2 speakers

    Included with the monitor are the stand, power cable, DisplayPort cable, HDMI cable, USB-C cable, the color pre-calibration report, a Warranty card, and a welcome card. The monitor weighs in at 18.9598 pounds with the included stand and 12.5663 pounds without it and has VESA 100 x 100 mm mounting capabilities.

    Usage Impressions:

    This unit is easy to use, and the only setup is to attach the stand and cables. Once connected the device is easily recognized by the operating system. The screen itself is gorgeous and watching 4K video is amazingly crisp and clean with vibrant colors and the darkest of darks with no notifiable issues for contrasting areas. The stand mount has an extremely useful swivel feature on it allowing the monitor to be rotated without having to rotate the stand. The stand and the VESA 100 mounting bracket allow for this monitor to be configured in multiple ways to allow for the best use case, including with the use of monitor arms.

    The fact that this monitor continues the long tradition of ProArt Monitors having multiple inputs, allows for one to connect the device to a wide array of inputs. In my existing setup, I have been able to configure the setup to handle inputs from my Tower, My work laptop, and my personal laptop via the multiple inputs available. I see no reason why I cannot continue to do this with the new monitor, albeit using different ports. The multiple input feature also allows one to set up the screen in either a Picture-in-Picture or a Picture-By-Picture Mode, with the latter allows up to four inputs.

    The other features available in the On-Screen Display (OSD) menu include:

    • ProArt Preset – Offering various modes of use including Standard Mode, sRGB, Rec. 709, DCI-P3, HDR, Scenery, Reading, Darkroom, and Rapid rendering modes. It also allows for 2 user-specified modes.

    • Blue Light Filter – this allows one to adjust the amount of Blue light emitted from the panel. Level 4 is optimized and is compliant with the TUV low Blue Light Certification and in this mode the Brightness function is disabled.

    • ProArtPalette – is for managing the Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, Hue, Color Temperature, Gamma, Black Level, Color, and has a Color Reset capability.

    • Image – allowing one to adjust the Sharpness, Trace Free, Aspect Control, and ASCR capabilities.

    • Sound – You can adjust Volume, Mute, and Source for Audio

    • PIP/PBP Setting – as discussed above

    • Input Select – to Select the source for input including auto Detection

    • System Setup – Language settings, System Information and All Reset (return to factory default)

    • Shortcut – Used to create two shortcut keys for brightness, contrast, input select, Color temp., Volume, QuickFit, GamePlus Rest Reminder, Color Augmentation, and set as a shortcut key.

    Overall, the Asus PA279CV – 27” 4K IPS Monitor is a wonderful high-quality monitor with a lot of features that can aid the user in all aspects of their needs for a monitor.

    Pros: Picture Quality, Number of available inputs, PBP/PIP functionality, Available modes

    Cons: The USB hub requires the use of the USB-C upstream port which is not available on all machines (but cab be rectified via an adapter or add-on card.)

    Solid Performance

    This is a gorgeous 4K display, calibrated out of the box, and a cinch to set up. The monitor took some adjustment on my part to get accustomed to. The native resolution of 3840 X 2160 is 4K and then some. Scaled to 120 per cent on the desktop as recommended by Windows 10, text is quite crisp and readable, but tiny. That annoyance is easily adjusted. I have this display set up next to a 24-inch monitor which it has supplanted. I am enjoying the extended desktop. My other monitor, adjusted by eye only, had a bluish cast to the whites, and the Asus appeared relatively warmer. I trust the calibrated Asus.

    The non-reflective screen has been a joy to use. I have the monitors set up at my office desk. Given the way I have been using the Asus so far, its beautiful resolution is overkill. Its video inputs feature two HDMI inputs, a USB-C input, and a Display Port input. The monitor comes with a USB-C cable, tagged to be USB 3.1 compliant, an HDMI cable, and a Display Port cable. My Lenovo ThinkCentre M90n1 with an i5-8265U processor and Intel UHD Graphics 620 was able to output HDR under Windows 10 into the Asus, and it looked fantastic. I had to connect it with the supplied Display Port cable. I was not able to get video to pass through the USB-C cable from the Lenovo into the Asus unless I used a USB-C to HDMI dongle (not supplied), leading me to think the supplied USB-C cable may have been at fault.

    I had the monitor up and running in less than 15 minutes out of the box. No tools are required to attach the monitor panel to the base, which is replete with the video input options mentioned, all speced to be capable of displaying 4K HDR resolution at 60 fps. In addition, there is a headphone jack (3.5mm) and four USB-A 3.1 ports which operate off the USB-C input, the Asus acting as a hub, also passing along power to connected devices, such as laptops, which need it to recharge batteries.

    I was startled to hear audio out of the monitor. The Asus does have speakers which are passable, and they are a convenience to have if outboard speakers are not available.

    This is a fine monitor and will serve my needs for some time to come. I am not a gamer or into production graphics or video. I will use the Asus occasionally to touch up photographs and consume media, in addition to its regular office work.

    Love the versatility!

    I am very impressed with the number of features built into this monitor. It allows for multiple devices to be plugged in and viewed on the screen (if you want), while simultaneously charging ones plugged in via the USB ports. (It even comes with one hdmi cable and one display port cable.) The monitor setting options are vast, and I appreciate that you can save multiple setups to switch between depending on what you’re viewing or working on.

    The size of the screen is perfect for me, a nice upgrade from my 15.6” laptop. As someone who does photography for a hobby, I am very impressed with crispness and accuracy of the colors as well. In dual monitor setup with my laptop, I was easily able to closely match the brightness and colors so there was not a distracting difference between the two screens, besides the screen sizes.

    The stand itself is very sturdy, with a heavy base to prevent it from tipping over when adjusting the screen position. I immensely appreciate the wide range of motion that the stand allows for too.

    The built-in speakers were surprisingly half-decent. Obviously, they’re limited in sound quality, but I was pleasantly surprised with how loud they are.

    One cool thing I discovered with my android phone, is that when plugged into this monitor it has a desktop mode option. When activated, it basically turns the phone’s output into a normal computer screen on the monitor. Then, with a wireless mouse plugged into a USB port on the monitor, everything automatically synched together so I could navigate my phone’s desktop with the mouse.

    Overall, I’m very impressed with this monitor. I really wished I had it when I was working from home, but I am most excited to have it for editing photos. If I was just using this for basic work-related functions, then I’m not sure this high quality of a monitor would be necessary, but for photo editing purposes, I think this is a worthy investment.

    Stunning, True Color Monitor

    The ASUS ProArt display impresses with its vibrant and rich colors. Made specially designed for artists or people who do graphic design, the colorful display can be of use to a wide range of people, notably those who do photography, video and even AutoCAD.

    Setup is easy once out of the box. The ProArt has the option to choose from USB C, DisplayPort, and HDMI as video sources and further allows 65W charging from the USB C port as well. What I really liked was that all cables were included for each input including the USB-C cable. Thanks Asus! Auto source recognition made it easy to plug in the monitor and begin using it quickly after connecting it to my laptop.

    The ProArt is unlike any other monitor I've used or seen, having features like blue light reduction beneficial for me,, and features for work like color presets. Having multiple presets like sRGB, Rec.709, and DCI-P3 also made it easier to adjust to the color gamut I prefer. Even with the standard preset on, wow, colors appear beautiful and natural. Asus went further in their setup and included certificates showing Calman verification (used to verify color accuracy), TUV low blue light filter, TUV flicker free technology, and a pre-calibration color report. The monitor also touts 100% sRGB, 100% Rec. 709, a 4K HDR10, 60Hz, 5ms, IPS panel, with a max brightness of 350 nits (enough to view what you'd like in a well lit room). This is all to say in simple terms that the monitor is bright and will produce colors and shades of colors accurately. When in use, I could see natural colors vividly within photoshop projects and as they were exported in the quality I liked.

    Another feature that wowed me was the tilt and pivot the monitor has. You can swivel to the left and right 45 degrees, plus are able to pivot 90 degrees (from horizontal to vertical position). The pivot feature is perfect when trying to get a better look at pictures or art in portrait mode. Finally, the internal speakers included in the monitor are pretty good quality. The sound can get loud enough for when watching movies or videos to hear peoples' voices and does not crack at 100%. It is a nice addition speakers were included.

    Overall, this is a great monitor for those wanting a monitor that shows vivid, true colors and not a display with washed or oversaturated colors and hues. I recommend it if you are looking for something to use for photoshop, video editing, or simply want an amazing looking display.

    Almost Perfect

    It was love at first sight, and after sitting in front of them for 10 hours a day for the past few weeks, I'm very happy with my purchase. So here are the pros - size and 4K resolution are standouts; the detail, color quality, brightness, are wonderful. Since I spend most of my time staring at text (documents, code, email, slack) the eyestrain reduction has been very welcome (see images - the slight tint in color is because of this). I was fortunate to be able to get two of them to setup an office environment at home, and at this time I'd say they are almost perfect.

    So the only thing I can say is that the controls (its a direction switch at the base of the screen below the Samsung logo) can be a bit finicky when you are just starting to use it. Things like turning them off can be a bit tricky if you have no inputs, as the monitors auto detect sources and can present options based on that. But once you figure that out, its simple to use. That really the only thing I've found and that me nitpicking.

    One important lesson I've learned thought is not so much about the monitor, but about using 4K, especially multiple 4K monitors on an older laptop: You need an appropriate 4K Dock to push 4K content to all devices without issue. I have two laptops - one for work (a 2019 Dell Precision 7730 with Xeon processor) and my personal (a 2015 HP Omen 17t-W200 with Core i7 and and UHD screen) that I've connect the monitors to and while the newer Dell can push 4K to both monitors without any issue, my HP started stuttering and lagging just connecting one. After some checks, I found that the integrated graphics cards needed to be configured to use my NVIDIA card as primary or offload some of the processing to the Dock. I purchased the WAVLINK USB-C Dual 4K universal docking station (Model UG69PD2) with E-mark chip and it supported all three screens at [email protected] 60Hz from both devices without issues. It also supports Mac and has a built in 100W power to the laptop and devices (if your device supports it). If you are having issues with refresh of you purchase this monitor, I highly getting a dock. It'll provide a lot of flexibility and expandability for you.

    Mega Sweet

    Love it!! After trying a 2k monitor and a VA Panel 4k monitor I found this glorious thing. I don't play video games or edit videos so I can't speak to how it performs in those areas; however, for spreadsheets, word docks, trading websites and such it is awesome. So clear, so crisp, so awesome. The only thing I don't care for is the non-adjustable stand; it has a large footprint and is rather tall. I bought an after-market adjustable stand for $20 from a well known online retail and problem solved. Best IPS 4k monitor value around.

    It’s perfect. Except the design of wall mount.

    Everything is just more than I expected. And I think it’s anti glare too even there’s a No in specifications.

    Just one more thing: if you want to use the Monitor Desk Mount make sure that you are buying the absolute Vesa Wall Mount “75mmx75mm”. DO NOT BUY the 100mmx100/75mmx75mm. It wil not fit the circle in the back of the monitor.

    Amazing monitors

    Spending $700 on 2 monitors was not the plan but after purchasing and returning cheap Lenovo monitors... I knew that this is not an area where I should compromise especially when I spend 7 hours a day staring at them for work. I have them set up on the Mount It! dual monitor stand and I see a lot of concerns about the vesa hardware issue. Honestly I just screwed them in as far as they would go without bending the mount or damaging the monitors and they are secured on even with a little gap. So the standard 75mm/100mm hardware worked for me. I added pictures.

    Exceptional value for graphic designers

    As a (primarily) web UI designer, I already had a 27" 4k ViewSonic 2785 and calibrate that with a DataColor Spyder5. This LG is much cheaper, has less controls, and a much simpler stand...but after calibration had almost as wide a calibrated color gamut as my much more expensive 2785. The primary benefit is that it's VERY sharp for use in programs like Illustrator, Adobe XD, InDesign, Cinema4d, etc... and if you need more adjustment, it has a vesa mount so you can buy even a basic Amazon arm to mount it. Plus it comes with cables and it's a quick assembly. One odd thing: it's described as Silver but I would call it Black. If this lasts, it's a fantastic value.

    Not bad, or good.

    I was disappointed by the obvious backlight hotspots that are even more apparent at night . The max brightness doesn’t reach advertised levels even when viewing hdr content. Otherwise if viewing in a darker room this serves its purpose but nothing stands out when comparing similarly priced monitors. I’d recommend this only if you want a decent monitor for media consumption. I don’t recommend this to anyone who is needing to edit photo or video, as color accuracy is compromised. Gamers already should know to go for something with maybe a 2k resolution in exchange for refresh rate and response time

    Excellent Monitor

    This is a great monitor. It has all the newer features at a superb price. The picture and resolution is fantastic. This monitor has taken my gaming to an entirely new level.

    The only thing I don't like about it is aesthetic, I don't like the arcing base.

    Really great picture

    Really great picture for the price, colors are great out of the box without having to mess around with the settings. When working in the desktop, 4k is a huge improvement over the old 1080p monitor I was using. It's decent for games too, as long as you're ok with only 60hz. No ghosting or anything that I can notice, and the response time seems fine to me. Only negative is that the stand is kinda cheap and wobbly and there's no height adjustment.

    Superb SDR 4k Monitor, Mediocre HDR Performance

    LG - 27UL600-W 27" IPS LED 4K UHD FreeSync Monitor with HDR

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    *****Review*****

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The LG 27UL600-W, the successor to the widely popular and reviewed 27UK series by LG. The main question that everyone has is… Is it good and is it worth upgrading? Let’s dive right in and see how the LG 27UL600 performs. Keep in mind, the difference between the LG 27UL600 and the 27UL650 is mainly the stand. Here we go!

    Right off the bat, comparing my LG 27UL600 to my friends LG 27UK750 is practically identical. The build quality is definitely nice on these LG monitors so if you have/liked the UK series, you shouldn’t be disappointed in the UL series. As far as connectivity options, the UL and UK series is practically the same; the only difference is that the UL has a DisplayPort 1.4 while the UK has a DisplayPort of 1.2.

    This is probably the part you want to read the most, performance!

    Before I explain any comparisons between the LG UL and LG UK, I have to say that the LG 27UL600-W on its own is a very good monitor. As far as picture quality goes, it’s definitely nice and I have no complaints when it comes down to viewing angles,color accuracy, or crispness. The monitor itself has really good SDR brightness while HDR is mediocre at best due to the lack of wide color range and low peak brightness. So my complaint is with the HDR. There’s really no benefit here on this monitor and it may even be worse if your monitor is in a dark or poorly lit environment; blacks appear gray. I tested this by playing movies, YouTube and playing games. With HDR enabled, it was honestly not that pleasing… So I would HIGHLY recommend you leaving it on SDR as opposed to HDR.

    Comparing the UK series with the UL series, the performance is very similar. Brightness for my particular UL600 is on point while the colors are accurate. When it comes down to Vesa DisplayHDR 400, I don’t notice much of a difference when compared to HDR 10. One particular feature that I noticed that the UL series has over the UK series is a custom color mode. On my friends LG UK monitor, there’s basically preset options only. This is definitely a plus for those that want to customize their colors as opposed to going with manufacture presets. When it comes to utilizing the Freesync/Gsync option on the monitor, I didn’t have any problems enabling it for my 2080. Make sure to set your monitor to Freesync Extended Mode. Although the UL series monitor is limited to 60hz, I still like enabling the Freesync/Gsync option so that I don’t experience any screen tearing. If you notice any screen tearing for whatever reason after enabling, make sure to enable VSync in your Nvidia control panel. During my gameplay sessions of BV5 and other various games, I didn’t notice any screen tearing or input lag which is definitely a plus. I was honestly wowed when it comes down to the performance for the LG - 27UL600 while gaming.

    Overall, I have to say that although I am impressed because I don’t have the LG UK monitor that my friend has; I wouldn’t jump to purchase the LG UL monitor if you have the LG UK monitor. Reason being, I feel like both monitors are very similar and the UL is just a refresh of the UK. BUT! If you’re looking for an excellent SDR monitor that has HDR support (although a bit lacking IMO), 4K, produces accurate colors, supports wide viewing angles and is from a reputable brand that can perform; I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase the LG 27UL600-W. So it ultimately depends on what you currently have and if you want the upgrade. But at the end on terms of just the LG - 27UL600, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others that are on a search for a new monitor.

    Elegant Monitor

    I own two of these. The quality, picture, and build is incomparable to monitors I’ve owned in the past. I use this for my PlayStation 4 Pro and PC Gaming Rig. The interface is easy to navigate as well. These monitors however, do not have speakers. Let’s be real though, if you’re dropping this much on this monitor your more than likely using a good set of external speakers. HDR 60HZ refresh rate.

    High Dynamic Range, with or without HDR

    LG - 27UL600 (27” version, IPS LED 4K, HDR, Freesync). I’ll admit that I’m lured into the next best thing in computer monitors. LG has been my recent go-to because it is setting the standard in what computer monitors can achieve, and at a rational price. The image is spectacular with compatible media that includes HDR encoding. They’ve even got a setting that does a very credible “HDR Effect” which enhances non-HDR signals.. . . with some suggestions noted below. I’m searching for 4K movies and videos to illustrate the higher performance that this LG is certified to achieve. But, it doesn’t take test equipment to see the improvements.

    ABOUT HDR: There seems to be some confusion about HDR.

    + IF you have HDR encoded programming (almost always in combination with 4k resolution, although they are different technologies) it will include information instructing the LG monitor to expand levels of brightness and contrast to achieve the image envisioned by the movie/TV/game developers. The LG also knows to substitute in a different group of PICTURE MODES. However, even though YOU may know the media was HDR enabled, it does not mean your computer, or cables, or cable adapters passed it along to the LG. For example, Apple on my 13”, 2017 MacBook Pro, does not enable HDR, so 4k programs will not trigger the HDR in monitors like this HDR enabled LG.

    + HDR is not triggered and would likely not improve SDR (non-HDR) images. HOWEVER, the “HDR Effect” setting on the LG UL600 does a remarkable job making these images (especially 4K) look rich, with broader contrast and brighter whites. It appears to expand the dynamic range of appropriate programming. Just not every program. And certainly not most of your other computer Apps. It is NOT intended as a “use it on everything” feature.

    + HDR in the world of video/gaming is NOT the same as HDR in photography. These two industries (photo and video) seriously messed up using the same terminology for different processes. We didn’t need more confusion.

    SETUP and CONTROL: I’ve got a professionally calibrated LG OLED 4K HDR TV within view as I setup my new LG computer monitor, so I’m pretty familiar with what video image perfection looks like. I’ve also got my reference strip of black velour fabric, and a calibration image on the screen as I adjust the contrast, brightness, and color settings. (The eye is easily fooled, so reference images and other simple tools can make setup and evaluations more reliable.) Loading in a 4K movie and the first important hurdle is crossed . . . after some fussing with cables, plugging and unplugging, and restarting. It’s not the monitor. Copy protection issues!!! The computer and monitor eventually recognize each other and Netflix and Vudu stop complaining about “error due to HDCP”. It took only an hour to sort out the right settings and no problems recurred. In that time I successfully used DisplayPort and HDMI cable, with and without a few adapters, and across several brands.

    LG provides a downloadable APP (Mac and PC), OnScreen Controls which adds or repeats a variety of settings. Not all of them. Screen split controls are here. The idea that you need to have monitors specialized for different tasks no longer makes sense after you use OnScreen. This is a monitor that doesn’t need to make compromises because it gives me the ability to create any mix of image parameters I prefer . . . right down to assigning them to various specific applications on my computer! When I click on an application, the monitor changes to the picture parameters I selected for that Application. Very cool!!. If I’ve got an array of LG monitors, it’ll let me set them up differently. I think it will satisfy a broad range of end users like me who want a work computer, a photographers tool, a video display, and a game screen. Yes. It’s that flexible.

    PERFORMANCE: The LG 27UL600 blew me away with crisp, colorful, bright images. It is not an OLED. It lacks absolute black performance, as does any other IPS LCD monitor. It creates increased contrast by providing a significant amount of brightness. It will tolerate the sun coming in nearby windows. Frankly, for most of my daytime work I customized the REC709 setting (around 35% brightness, 45% contrast) so my eyes wouldn’t get tired. On the other hand, I had no problem using HDR Effect for Netflix programs. during the day. With that LG OLED in the family room, I won’t care about evenings. I know the measured NITS is “only” 350-400, but not so many years back, monitors/TVs would have had 100 to 200 nits and not 15% of this LG’s resolution. We are definitely spoiled. It’s a beautiful monitor, with invisible pixels, and gorgeous color, and excellent compatibility with many computers..

    COMPLAINTS: I’n not inclined to blame LG for the bad behavior of UHD copy protection. I do wish LG provided more guidance in their User Guide. I really love when high performance equipment includes primers on advanced features. What customers don’t understand, they will complain about.

    That push button menu at the underside of the monitor became intermittently non-responsive when I switched cables, or even if I switched menu sizes. No troubleshooting facts or RESET instructions provided. Only a full reboot of my computer and unplugging the monitor got me back.

    And, that bump out on the rear of the monitor for attaching the stand gets in the way if you are mounting the monitor onto certain mobile stands. It forces the bottom of the monitor out a few degrees (too many). I’ve modified my mounting plate.

    LG phone customer service has been an occasional issue in the past, and again they were not helpful at all. They directed me back to the store.

    SUMMARY: I’ve only been playing for a few days, so this is only the beginning. But, I’m confident that there is more than enough image dynamic range to completely satisfy me. This is strong performance across a wide range of activities. The absence of the deepest blacks (compared to “Zero” levels in an OLED) is pretty typical across brands, and not an issue for my photography. None of my printers generate “inky” blacks. Coming from my 24” LG 4K monitor from 2 years ago, the new LG isn’t just bigger, it’s totally brilliant and more colorful. The images are stunning and the monitor provides the best images I’ve seen.

    Beautiful, bright and crisp 4K picture!

    This is a really good monitor, I got it for gaming to use instead of my 4k tv. After adjusting the settings in nvidia control panel and monitor interface, the display looks just as good as it did on my Samsung 4k tv, very bright and colors are vibrant. Being an IPS panel makes a big difference, looks amazing. I don't recommend TN panels if you really like stunning colors like me. I originally tried a TN panel 1080p 144hz monitor right before I got this one, but I returned it because the 4k 60hz looks so very much better, and I play mostly single player games. Since they run at 60fps or higher, I don't have any problem with the 60hz refresh rate for my games, everything looks very smooth and fluent. The monitor's settings menu is very robust with many options to change how the screen looks, I got my display looking very bright and colorful. The super resolution options makes games looks a lot better, very impressed with that. It also comes with a nice Displayport cable (make sure you use that for the best quality picture). The monitor does not swivel on the stand, but it does tilt up and down. The stand looks fairly stylish and I like the white back of the monitor. I would highly recommend this monitor for gamers who want to get into 4k, but don't want to spend the money on higher refresh rate 4k screens. 4k is very beautiful on a screen this size (27"'), looks worlds better than 1080p if your hardware can handle it. This is a good bargain and I'm very satisfied with my purchase, LG has put together a really good quality and nice looking monitor.

    Great monitor Only 60Hz not 120

    This works great but I bought this expecting it to run a 120 refresh rate but have come to an understanding months later that it only runs 60Hz. I mainly run this to play cod warzone and does a great job but I am a bit disappointed that I can’t run 120Hz.I have to settle in with my new Xbox series X with just 60Hz now and not get the full experience.

    Issues after about 4 months

    Bought 2 for my wife back in March to work from home. After about four months of use one of the monitors developed this wave of light color that would roll across the screen. Had to send it back for repair. Took about four or five weeks to get it back and although the original problem was fixed we noticed that the monitor had a slight yellowish color compared to the other one. Reset settings on both and still the one that was sent back for repair has a yellowish tone to it. Unfortunately LG wanted me to send it back again instead of just replacing the monitor. Unfortunately, given their success rate I have no confidence in this monitor. It’s obviously defective and you can only put so many Band-Aids on things. So I would not recommend this monitor based on my issues. Attached picture shows the monitor on the right is the one that was repaired.

    Fresh approach to monitors

    Set up was very easy. I chose to follow MFG recommendations and used the supplied cable and installed the LG driver which I usually don't do!

    The first thing I found interesting is no buttons to press. Everything is controlled by a joy stick placed just behind the bottom of the screen on the stand. Very handy and quick access to screen preferences and settings. Someone had a Great Idea!!

    There are 11 Picture Modes, one of them being custom. My favorite of course is HDR Effect. I find the color effects are mostly on the warm side if you leave to the factory defaults. There are also gaming preferences. FreeSync is off by default.

    Connections: Two HDMI, One Display Port. One Audio Out. I checked my windows 10 audio and found the monitor was automatically among the list in the speaker tray.

    Display Split Screens: There are 12 split screen combinations up to 8 splits. There are 4 PIP screens. You can set the response times from Normal to Fast or Faster and there is a Black Stabilizer slide selection. You can customize Picture modes to remember settings for different applications. You can set Display orientation for Landscape or Portrait and even Flip the screens.

    I did watch some BluRay Movies with zero issues, was very pleased.

    Ok, Theres got to be a down side somewhere. I do not like the stand. It looks modern, But for me, it takes up desk realestate. Just not practical as I need space for music recording gear interfaces and such.

    Other wise, this is a very functional monitor in terms of electronic choice of varied functionality. The most advanced that I've seen in a long time. Thumbs up to LG for this fantastic Monitor.

    Great monitor at a good price point.

    Just got a Mac Mini a few days ago and needed a 4K monitor for it. Not wanting to spend the money for Apple's Pro Display XDR which it the top of the line. They pair nicely with Macs. This monitor has a really nice 4K picture for the price point. That important, because you have to spend a couple of hundred more to get Thunderbolt 3 connections, USBC Ports. With that connectivity you get the deeper monitor integration. That said, This monitor is a great value, watching 4K movies is a blast. Running Big Sur on Apple silicon hooked up to this monitor is amazing. If you can afford a XDR go for it. If you want a good 4K monitor that's easy on your pocket, fun to watch 4k content on, and easy on your eyes when it's time to work, go for this one!

    Great for productivity but better out there.

    If you can get it on sale, this is a great monitor. For the retail price, there is better out there. The size is kind of small for the resolution. A 32" would be better for text legibility. Scaling does work well, though, with very clear text for the most part. I have this paired with a late 2013 iMac 21.5" and it's definitely a welcome upgrade compared to 21.5" 1080p. Color-wise, I was able to get it calibrated VERY close to the iMac, basically identical with just a super tiny variance, unnoticeable unless you're looking for it. Monitor does have some backlight bleed and IPS glow, best for bright rooms. Viewing angles are HORRIBLE for an IPS display. Not a big deal to me, but if you don't view straight on, it gets messy quick, which is surprising for an IPS Panel. I would swear this is VA or TN based on viewing angles alone. Like I said, "for the money" this is a good monitor. You get what you pay for. For me, using a budget iMac I got for free and spent $400 in upgrades, plus $280 for this monitor, this is great. If you're trying to pair with a new iMac or Mac Mini, etc., or if you have the budget to blow, I would look elsewhere. With my combo only runs at 30Hz, which is surprisingly Ok, coming from someone with 120-165Hz gaming panels for various other systems. For productivity, this is a great monitor. Gaming, look elsewhere. I use this only for music production and basic web browsing/general use. Needed more screen real estate for my DAW and hardware controller apps. Gaming is a different story, as I have other systems for that (LG E9 OLED paired with a 3080, Dell 27" 1440p 165 Hz with a 2080, etc). For budget or basic use, this is very good. Spend more if you want top tier. I have high end displays, and this is not it. If you haven't caught on yet, SPEND MORE MONEY IF IT MAKES SENSE FOR YOUR USE CASE. STAY AWAY FOR GAMING. For a budget monitor on sale, it's terrific. For the $450+ asking price, you can get WAY better!

    Side note: with my Late 2013 iMac with GT750M, it ONLY worked HDMI - a mini DP to DP cable did NOT work, even when setting DP mode on the monitor to 1.2. The monitor menus lagged like crazy, and had no picture. Switched back to mini DP to HDMI 2.0 (Microsoft adapter), and it worked just fine. Stick with HDMI on this one with a late 2013 iMac - DP did NOT work!

    Great monitor, worth the price

    Bought two of those to replace MSI curved monitors. MSI was a perfect fit for my setup, but were unusable, as it made me nauseous in just couple of hours of use, looked like image would double in my eyes.

    Those LG monitors are bright and crisp. Connections are straight forward, and set up is easy. Consider using display port instead of hdmi. It offers better resolution, and hdr pass through, unlike hdmi.

    Those monitors are used for work, not gaming. Spending hours at a time with no ill effect to my eyes. Currently, two of those are connected to a mac mini, with usb-c to display port cables (not included with monitors).

    I am not sure that 4k made any difference, as I am using only half the resolution permitted, to keep icons, and shrift at a decent size.

    4k immersion

    I cannot say a bad thing about this monitor for gaming on my Xbox Series X!

    The monitor automatically detected the top graphics setting and applied them. My gaming went from being so/so on first person shooters to being SNIPER SUPREME.

    If you are a casual gamer like me and want to step up your enjoyment level and take advantage of the AMAZING graphics, this is the right monitor for you.

    Great picture not so great price

    Good all around monitor. 4K resolution looks very nice with the HDR. If you are buying to game on, it is not a high frame rate display. However it easy is to look at for extended periods and does have a game mode. I like how it shows total time powered on in settings. Only downfall is the price unless you can grab it on sale.

    5 stars for the sale price 279.99

    Got the monitor for 279.99, and speaking to the price, it is a good monitor. UP600 is match better than last year's ul650, and up600 gives DCI-P3 color, which is great for MacBook user.

    The color quality is pretty good, though had a delta <5 rather than 2 or 3 compared to higher end.

    The port is limited to only three and no power charger as well to laptop. But since I had a thunderbolt dock and don't need these fancy staff but good image quality, and especially considering the price deal, it's a very satisfied purchase.

    So good I bought a second one!

    Bought this to add a second monitor to my desktop. The other monitor is an older 1080p and I bought this to take advantage of the 4k capabilities of my graphics card. This display on this monitor is very clear and the colors really pop. The beauty of this monitor made my older monitor look dull... so I immediately bought a second one to replace the older monitor!

    The only caution I would provide is the monitor does not have any height adjustment and it wasn't at a comfortable height for me. To solve this, I replaced the original stands with adjustable VESA compliant stands. Now my setup is perfect!

    Pretty good for the price

    The LG 27” IPS 4K UHD Monitor with VESA Display HDR 400 is a great monitor. It's super bright and crisp, has beautiful color accuracy, and is easy to set up. Pros include the display's hue, which is usually a little warmer than other monitors, which can be a little bit too cool for my liking. It has a convenient detachable stand that also doubles as a built-in cable management system. The only thing that I would say could improve was the unit's thickness or depth because it seemed thicker than most comparable models at this price point.

    A TUF 4K Monitor to Beat! Pun Intended.

    ASUS has been making some exceptional monitors for a few years now, and this gaming monitor is no exception. As I'd just built an ASUS TUF GAMING based PC, this was going to be an upgrade experience to remember; especially as I was lucky enough to find a retail priced Graphics Card (GPU) that's ready for 4K.

    In the box you'll find the monitor, the base portion of the monitor stand, a wire management cover, a power cord and power adapter, a displayport cable, and the various manuals and warranty information. Assembly requires that you take the monitor and attach the base, using a simple screw that’s already attached to the base for easy installation. The cable management piece attaches to the rear of the stand, allowing you to simply wind the cable through, which helps keep them connected during orientation adjustments. If you opt to mount the monitor, you can pop out the screw tabs on the rear of the VESA mount area, remove the existing stand, and then mount using a compatible wall mount. For inputs, you’ll find this has 2 HDMI and 1 DisplayPort input, along with a headphone jack for audio output.

    The ASUS stand is quite impressive, reminding me of a 3rd party option that allows for greater flexibility for different orientations. You can move the monitor up, down, tilt left or right, tilt it downward, and place the orientation anywhere between landscape and portrait to your viewing preference. In my opinion, this is probably one of the best OEM stands I’ve ever used on a monitor. I was planning on moving this to another stand that allowed for similar positioning and was surprised to find it was already up to the task!

    Since my newer GPU could use DisplayPort for 4K viewing, I opted to use the included cable, and was pleasantly surprised at the viewing area of the desktop when I powered on my PC. Being at 4K resolution, there was a lot more space for shortcuts, viewing websites, and a larger viewing area while gaming. I was also able to take advantage of the 4K resolution quality settings on websites like YouTube to view various videos posted by content creators I actively follow. There is a display driver you can install for this monitor, which requires a small download on the ASUS support website. I would highly recommend you install the driver, as this allowed my PC and GPU to properly view all the available resolutions and feature options for the monitor. The only limitation to using DisplayPort, is that you PC handles most of the output settings, and the monitor disables GameVisual, the Blue Light Filter, and color settings options in the display’s built in menus. However, HDR and Adaptive-Sync can still be toggled in the Image settings menu.

    While connected over HDMI, you can take advantage of the various GameVisual modes for automatic adjustments of picture for a better viewing experience. For instance, in scenery mode the Asus monitor adjusts the colors on the screen to mirror a “Dynamic” style setting helping colors stand out. In fact, there are several pre-defined GameVisual modes including Racing Mode, Cinema, RTS/RPG, FPS, sRGB, MOBA, and a user defined custom setting based on your adjustments. There is even a “GamePlus” menu that allows you to turn on an onscreen Crosshair (with various options), have an FPS counter displayed on screen during gameplay, set a timer, and even an option to help with display adjustments. All these options will display information on the screen to help you practice or assist with monitoring your overall performance.

    Playing games in 4K, I was able to make out more detail on screen, with a more vivid picture compared to my previous 1080P monitor. Games like WarZone, Red Dead Redemption, Star Trek Online, and World of Warcraft all felt new again thanks to the larger viewing area. With RDR2, I found myself avoiding fast travel points, and instead taking in the visual splendor of the landscape. WarZone gameplay in 4K and with FPS mode made the gameplay smoother overall with colors adjusted to assist with viewing everything in your field of view. The shadowboost is easily my favorite setting to adjust for games like RDR or the new Resident Evil, allowing for better viewing in darker environments, without washing out the image.

    I was also surprised to find there are two speakers built into the monitor with audio passthrough. You can enable the speakers While they aren’t the loudest, they offer a more flexible option for those currently lacking speakers or who want to quickly set up and go. The headphone jack allows for flexibility of connecting your favorite headphones or a line out for speakers, while using the joystick and menu to adjust volume on the fly. During louder volume settings, the speakers can clearly be heard clipping louder sounds.

    If you’re a streamer and have a capture card that will pass through 4K output, you’ll find this monitor a perfect pairing for streaming on apps like Twitch or YouTube. This is also a perfect monitor for those looking to do video editing in 4K or pair this with a new Macbook or Mac Mini. This has made my video and photo editing a breeze with a larger viewing area for apps, and tools easily able to stay out of the way of my preview windows! The blue light filter was also a game changer for me personally. Prior to using this monitor, I was using those cheap blue blocking glasses for longer edits. Now, I just turn on my preferred Blue Light Filter (mine is Level 2), and have noticed a significant change in my ability to avoid eye fatigue over the course of the day. My Blue Light glasses are now just sitting on my desk waiting for the day they might need to be used again.

    Overall, do I like this monitor? No, I LOVE THIS MONITOR! It’s changed my perception of 60hz vs 120hz+ refresh rates, as I’ve barely noticed any issues from the switch. The 4K resolution of this monitor has easily surpassed any expectation I had, and has become my go to for even console gaming with my Xbox Series X hooked up to the second HDMI port, fully taking advantage of the various picture options. If you’re a gamer looking to level up your monitor, this would be a solid choice for you!

    Work and Play at 4K

    I got this monitor for my husband who uses this monitor with his Asus TUF laptop. Great 4K quality for his work on Solidworks program and awesome performance for his gaming needs.

    We bought other monitor before only to realize it needs a speaker, this one comes with decent speakers. It is adjustable vertically and horizontally swivel, as well.

    We compared this monitor with other 4K monitors out there, and this definitely comes out top for quality and performance!

    Great entry-level 4K gaming monitor

    ASUS delivers a pretty great value entry point for anyone who wants a budget WLED IPS gaming monitor that delivers true 4k graphics, and some HDR compatibility. This monitor also happened to fit a sweet spot in our search for a new primary monitor for my son’s gaming setup. I grew up a PC gaming enthusiast, as well as a fan of building my own gaming computers, and my son is cultivating the same hobbies- with the benefits of getting my hand-me-downs to work with. He is also an avid gamer, and is starting to dabble in graphic design/art and digital photography. The TUF VG289Q more than caters to all of the things he explores and enjoys.

    That being said, his current PC setup had him gaming on an 8 year old LED 1080p monitor. This was a pretty good HD monitor for its time, but it was much past its useful life expectancy, and it was definitely time for an upgrade. The TUF VG289Q is our second IPS (In-Plane Switching) monitor, which has been a shift away from the twisted nematic (TN) screens I closely associated with gaming. The TN panel types favored speed and refresh rates, but they lacked color-depth and had pretty diminished viewing angles. My first IPS monitor was a higher-end 165 mhz monitor with a 1ms refresh rate that serves as my main gaming monitor, it will be interesting to see how this one holds up against it.

    From a build perspective, I’ve never owned an ASUS monitor, but they’ve put together a pretty solid reputation around build quality and craftmanship. This monitor looks to be no exception, it has a sturdy base that connects to the vertical arm with a single thumbscrew- really easy to setup and install yourself, and pretty rock solid as a unit once the monitor is connected. The monitor design comes together in a matte black finish with a minimalist gaming aesthetic to it, the only visual beyond the ASUS and TUF logos is a red ring around the base pivot. The build offers a premium feel with the very tight top and side bezels, a thicker bottom bezel as you would normally expect, and controls on the right lower rear using a few buttons and an OSD joystick (a feature I like more and more for ease of use over additional buttons). My son loves the pivot and angle options offered by the stand design, there is great mobility/flexibility both left to right and sliding up and down (an almost 6 inch change in verticality you can adjust to), as well as up and down tilting of the screen to combat glare. As a primary gaming monitor (as opposed to your side-hustle monitor that gets used for web browsing, streaming and other multi-tasking stuff while gaming…), it will likely remain in the landscape position in our desk setup. In terms of connectivity, it has a single Displayport 1.2, a pair of HDMI 2.0 ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack for audio. The built in speakers can provide decent sound, but we game with headsets and don't rely on monitor speakers, so the sound quality isn’t really a high priority for me.

    The TUF VG289Q monitor offers a pretty decent expanse of OSD features to help bring out the best of the different game types and environments, with more than a few Gaming Visual Mode presets based on game type, and an ability to customize your own. There is a broad array of calibration tools also packed in, but I have to say that the monitor came really well calibrated out of the box. My son particularly enjoyed the GamePlus menu, which offered a few gaming-specific tools in crosshairs, countdown timers and FPS meters he enjoys having on while playing. Very comprehensive feature-set that caters to folks looking for quick and easy presets (me), or for those looking to make adjustments to every slider and toggle until you calibrate your way to perfection.

    We are using the Displayport to connect to a Nvidia RTX 2070 Super, and are able to take advantage of the G-sync capabilities even though this is a Freesync monitor (which caters to AMD graphic cards). While the monitor has yet to be certified by Nvidia (and will advise you of that in settings), there was no issue with enabling it and validating that it worked through various software and program tests. We enabled HDR in Windows, and while it is entry-level HDR (not VESA certified HDR), you do see the difference in gameplay with it on. Much like my first dive into an IPS monitor, it was pretty astounding to see the visual difference offered in color and depth. It really shines in single-player action/adventure games that are scenery and environment-rich, like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro Exodus or The Witcher 3. I’ve played all three in HD (which I thought was stunning back then), but to revisit them in 4K is a pretty stunning refresh with new depths of color saturation and vivid rendering of details not available on the older monitor. FPS games such as COD Warzone and Black Ops perform pretty well, and we weren’t at all displeased with gameplay or game performance, considering the limiting thresholds of a 60hz refresh rate and a 5ms response time. The particular trade-offs bringing this 4K monitor down to the price range it is in are not at all limiting. Both my son and I are good gamers, but not at the level that those type of advantages are going to elevate our play seriously enough to make it a prime consideration when purchasing a monitor. One FPS in particular my son plays that he noted a heightened difference in was Borderlands 2. Graphically It is a bit more cartoonish in nature than other games, but the leap to 4K over HD really made a difference in gaming experience and really brought a new level of 'pop' to the world for him. Another aspect of the IPS monitor that is great is the wide-angle veiwing for days...it feels like almost 180 degrees of view that is not afforded by the TN monitor types.

    My son’s love of graphic design, art and photography (as well as general media consumption) also take full advantage of everything this monitor offers as a go-to for all his graphic-heavy hobbies. If you play e-sports level competitive gaming, and desperately need the refresh rates and timing to be the apex features, you will trade that for the graphic depth you get here every day in this price range. You get one or the other, but not both. ASUS brings a 4K world that can manage the needs of the skills most everyday gamers possess, and does so with another great addition to its long line of monitors.

    Great 4k gaming monitor at a very good price!

    The new Asus 28” 4k Tuf Gaming series monitor featuring a WLED IPS screen is very impressive for the asking price. I have several high-end monitors that cost more and this Asus is hanging right in there with them. The colors are brilliant and gaming in 4k with this monitor is awesome if you have a good enough card to push it. To start with while unboxing and assembling the stand I noticed that this monitor has some weight to it and definitely seems built tough as the series name would indicate. It has a very appealing design and with the small bezel and awesome stand that articulates in every direction yes even vertically. You can also lower and raise it by sliding it and everything is very smooth. I have it hooked up with a DisplayPort cable that I already had hooked up to my PC but the monitor comes with one. This is the first time I have seen a monitor come with a displayport cable which I was also impressed by and happy to see. I did not have any issues playing games with this monitor and I can tell the difference moving from 2k to 4k while it’s not near as noticeable as moving from 1080p to 2k or 4k it is still definitely worth upgrading to a 4k monitor if you can afford the graphics card to push it. I am actually surprised that this monitor does not cost more because the screen quality is very good if you can live with the 60hz refresh rate. It is plenty bright and details are sharp with great color reproduction. It also has built-in speakers but they lacked good range on the low end but I use a headset so I do not really care about that. This monitor has a push-button/joystick menu control on the back right that is the easiest to use controls for a monitor menu that I have ever used. I really like the implementation of the joystick. It is the first time I have seen or used one like it. Unless you just can not live without a higher refresh rate and can afford paying for it, this Asus Tuf Gaming monitor is a good choice for 4k gaming and general everyday use as well.

    Wrong monitor that passed Bestbuy’s inspection.

    Received the open box (excellent condition) today. ASUS monitor wasn’t even the correct monitor. The sticker of the correct model was placed over this cheap ASUS monitor. No power plug. No screws for the stand. I don’t know how did this even pass inspection to be resell. Then was on the phone with bestbuy for over 6 hours, 4 separate representatives because each kept hanging up. Decided to get walk into my local bestbuy. Got it refunded. Horrible experience. Last time I’ll make a purchase with BB.

    Great value - Great monitor

    ASUS is one of the top brands in computer related products. I have always been confident when buying ASUS products. ASUS does it again with a high-quality reasonably prices 4K gaming monitor. This review is for the 28-inch ASUS monitor model number VG289Q. It has great color with an IPS screen for a very reasonable price. Sure it is 60 hz but a higher hz 4K monitor will add $100’s to your cost. A nice balance of cost and functionality. I also recommend you review the manual to understand all of the different settings available to you. I rate this as 5 out of 5 stars!

    Pros:

    - 4K resolution.

    - IPS panel.

    - Solid build.

    - Fully adjustable; including portrait orientation.

    - Many gaming presets.

    - Included speakers (if that matters to you).

    - Headphone jack.

    - GREAT color!

    - Includes Display Port cable.

    - Freesync/Adaptive-Sync technology

    - HDR10

    - CDI-P3 90% color gamut and contrast performance

    Cons:

    - 60 hz refresh rate.

    - Location of connections.

    - Does not include HDMI cable.

    Unboxing and setting up the ASUS 28 inch 4K (3840x2160) was simple. When opening the package, you will find: monitor; Quick Start Guide; Warranty card; power cord, and Display Port (DP) cable. It is nice that at least one of the cables is included. Most people that are gaming will use a DP connection. If you need to use HDMI, you will need to get your own cable. I connected the monitor to the computer with the DP cable. The computer has an Nvidia 2070 graphics card. You will lay the monitor down and attach the base and handle for moving the monitor. You plug the DC cord and cables into the required spots. This is located just in front of the base on the monitor. I found this a little inconvenient and the base is in the way. Thank goodness you are not changing these connections very often! Your connections are: DC, DP, 2 x HDMI, earphone and a Kensington Lock (for a cable lock).

    The power button is located on the bottom right of the monitor. The other control buttons are found on the rear right of the monitor. Here is their function listed from top to bottom:

    1. Toggle stick allowing you to navigate the menus.

    2. Close – exit menus.

    3. Game Plus:

    a. Crosshair – allows you to choose the crosshair type. This is useful on FPS games. I like the large green circle setting.

    b. Timer – I did not try this.

    c. FPS Counter – shows the frames per second for the game.

    d. Display alignment – used if you have multiple displays.

    4. Game Visual: These are video preset modes. You cannot go wrong with Racing for gaming and Cinema for everything else.

    a. Scenery – for viewing scenery phots and videos.

    b. Racing – my favorite for gaming.

    c. Cinema – my favorite for movies and streaming.

    d. RTS/RPG: for real time strategy and role play games.

    e. FPS: for first person shooter.

    f. sRGB: for photos and graphics.

    g. MOBA: enhances enemy health bars.

    h. User: make your own settings.

    5. Blue light filter: the higher the number to more blue light is filtered.

    There are many other benefits and settings for this monitor. I encourage you to read the manual to understand these. This monitor is AMAZING!

    Sharp monitor. Great for PS5.

    Got this for my PlayStation 5. Setup took about a minute, really nice, sturdy base. Colors are crisp and vibrant. Everything has a photo-realistic sharpness to it, compared to the average 4k tv that adds all sorts of motion blur and processing to everything. It’s most noticeable on games with a lot of tiny text, like Diablo 3. Absolutely a joy to use.

    Tested this with my laptop’s hdmi-out and again, quick and simple setup.

    Only thing I dislike is the ports being under the tv instead of on the side. You got to flip it over to plug stuff in, and it’s awkward to try to hold, and gets the screen smudged with fingerprints, not a dealbreaker, just an irritation.

    For the price, however, you can’t go wrong with this. Doom, Farcry 5, The Last of Us, Spiderman, etc all look better than they ever did on my 40” 4k hdr tv.

    bang for your bucks!

    Pros

    - This a great 4k monitor, if you enjoy having all the 4k crisp graphics when playing PC instead of having high frame rate then look no further

    - for the price for $349 Asus VG289Q is a perfect budget monitor who games on PC/ Console all just a video editor

    - IPS panels also delivers some great colors like a VA panel, its great viewing angles, colors doesn’t fade when you’re off center

    - this monitor also comes with 2 HDMI 2.0 one Displayport, a headphone jack at the back, and built in speakers, ( I wouldn’t rely on these speakers tho but it’s still a nice touch to have speakers as part of the monitor.

    - it’s also equipped with Freesync, of if you have AMD GPU make sure to turn freesync on

    - i’ve tested this monitor on playing Apex legends , Warzone and Rainbow Six, and yes this monitor is only 60hz meaning up to 60fps of games.

    - the game did look great on 4k, MCC on PC looks great with this monitor. and running 60fps on PC did not bother me one bit. but then you switch back to higher frame monitor you realize how amazing it performs and seeing how smoother it is

    - the monitor have couple of game visual setting you can choose from to see what fit your liking on how you want the game to look, I prefer either user or racing settings best

    - black level looks great as well, loading a game from a VA panel to IP you sure will spot how much having an IPS monitor help with the vibrancy of the world in video games

    - but if you would really want to take advantage of this monitor, it’s best to be used for consoles, specially the latest PS5/ Xbox Series X. most of their games usually maxed out of either 4k, and the monitor is perfect for it.

    - Asus VG 289Q also support HDR it’s a positive and a negative on this one, but I wanted to highlight to let you guys know that it’s there and will activate on games that support HDR

    - sometimes HDR says it’s active and sometimes it will be off even tho i’m playing a game that supports HDR

    - playing 4k warzone on my PC compare to warzone on console, the game looks better on console, while on PC you’ll need to adjust settings to make sure you could reach that higher 60fps

    - 28” inc for a monitor in my option is the sweet spot, it’s perfect size for me when I game. i have zero issues reading the text it’s just perfect!

    cons

    - about the HDR on this monitor, honestly it helped a tiny bit, so I don’t consider this a true HDR. it does improve the color in a small way, it’s not enough to make me say wow, the picture quality still look SDR

    - I wish the console provide some shortcuts to switching ports, you literally have to use the setting and choose ports to be able to change it, no way around it

    - that’s including dealing with the built in speaker, to adjust the volume as well, you will need go to the settings. terrible idea.

    TUF gaming VG289q like I said is the perfect budget gaming monitor, it’s so much worth it from what it offer in the box. you have a very clean minimalist from design solid IPS, HDR monitor, having the ability to display and be used vertically is well worth of asking price. high recommend it for the price and for console gamers out there you will enjoy playing on this beautiful gaming monitor!

    Since my newer GPU could use DisplayPort for 4K viewing, I opted to use the included cable, and was pleasantly surprised at the viewing area of the desktop when I powered on my PC. Being at 4K resolution, there was a lot more space for shortcuts, viewing websites, and a larger viewing area while gaming. I was also able to take advantage of the 4K resolution quality settings on websites like YouTube to view various videos posted by content creators I actively follow. There is a display driver you can install for this monitor, which requires a small download on the ASUS support website. I would highly recommend you install the driver, as this allowed my PC and GPU to properly view all the available resolutions and feature options for the monitor. The only limitation to using DisplayPort, is that you PC handles most of the output settings, and the monitor disables GameVisual, the Blue Light Filter, and color settings options in the display’s built in menus. However, HDR and Adaptive-Sync can still be toggled in the Image settings menu.

    While connected over HDMI, you can take advantage of the various GameVisual modes for automatic adjustments of picture for a better viewing experience. For instance, in scenery mode the Asus monitor adjusts the colors on the screen to mirror a “Dynamic” style setting helping colors stand out. In fact, there are several pre-defined GameVisual modes including Racing Mode, Cinema, RTS/RPG, FPS, sRGB, MOBA, and a user defined custom setting based on your adjustments. There is even a “GamePlus” menu that allows you to turn on an onscreen Crosshair (with various options), have an FPS counter displayed on screen during gameplay, set a timer, and even an option to help with display adjustments. All these options will display information on the screen to help you practice or assist with monitoring your overall performance.

    Playing games in 4K, I was able to make out more detail on screen, with a more vivid picture compared to my previous 1080P monitor. Games like WarZone, Red Dead Redemption, Star Trek Online, and World of Warcraft all felt new again thanks to the larger viewing area. With RDR2, I found myself avoiding fast travel points, and instead taking in the visual splendor of the landscape. WarZone gameplay in 4K and with FPS mode made the gameplay smoother overall with colors adjusted to assist with viewing everything in your field of view. The shadowboost is easily my favorite setting to adjust for games like RDR or the new Resident Evil, allowing for better viewing in darker environments, without washing out the image.

    I was also surprised to find there are two speakers built into the monitor with audio passthrough. You can enable the speakers While they aren’t the loudest, they offer a more flexible option for those currently lacking speakers or who want to quickly set up and go. The headphone jack allows for flexibility of connecting your favorite headphones or a line out for speakers, while using the joystick and menu to adjust volume on the fly. During louder volume settings, the speakers can clearly be heard clipping louder sounds.

    If you’re a streamer and have a capture card that will pass through 4K output, you’ll find this monitor a perfect pairing for streaming on apps like Twitch or YouTube. This is also a perfect monitor for those looking to do video editing in 4K or pair this with a new Macbook or Mac Mini. This has made my video and photo editing a breeze with a larger viewing area for apps, and tools easily able to stay out of the way of my preview windows! The blue light filter was also a game changer for me personally. Prior to using this monitor, I was using those cheap blue blocking glasses for longer edits. Now, I just turn on my preferred Blue Light Filter (mine is Level 2), and have noticed a significant change in my ability to avoid eye fatigue over the course of the day. My Blue Light glasses are now just sitting on my desk waiting for the day they might need to be used again.

    Overall, do I like this monitor? No, I LOVE THIS MONITOR! It’s changed my perception of 60hz vs 120hz+ refresh rates, as I’ve barely noticed any issues from the switch. The 4K resolution of this monitor has easily surpassed any expectation I had, and has become my go to for even console gaming with my Xbox Series X hooked up to the second HDMI port, fully taking advantage of the various picture options. If you’re a gamer looking to level up your monitor, this would be a solid choice for you!

    Work and Play at 4K

    I got this monitor for my husband who uses this monitor with his Asus TUF laptop. Great 4K quality for his work on Solidworks program and awesome performance for his gaming needs.

    We bought other monitor before only to realize it needs a speaker, this one comes with decent speakers. It is adjustable vertically and horizontally swivel, as well.

    We compared this monitor with other 4K monitors out there, and this definitely comes out top for quality and performance!

    Great entry-level 4K gaming monitor

    ASUS delivers a pretty great value entry point for anyone who wants a budget WLED IPS gaming monitor that delivers true 4k graphics, and some HDR compatibility. This monitor also happened to fit a sweet spot in our search for a new primary monitor for my son’s gaming setup. I grew up a PC gaming enthusiast, as well as a fan of building my own gaming computers, and my son is cultivating the same hobbies- with the benefits of getting my hand-me-downs to work with. He is also an avid gamer, and is starting to dabble in graphic design/art and digital photography. The TUF VG289Q more than caters to all of the things he explores and enjoys.

    That being said, his current PC setup had him gaming on an 8 year old LED 1080p monitor. This was a pretty good HD monitor for its time, but it was much past its useful life expectancy, and it was definitely time for an upgrade. The TUF VG289Q is our second IPS (In-Plane Switching) monitor, which has been a shift away from the twisted nematic (TN) screens I closely associated with gaming. The TN panel types favored speed and refresh rates, but they lacked color-depth and had pretty diminished viewing angles. My first IPS monitor was a higher-end 165 mhz monitor with a 1ms refresh rate that serves as my main gaming monitor, it will be interesting to see how this one holds up against it.

    From a build perspective, I’ve never owned an ASUS monitor, but they’ve put together a pretty solid reputation around build quality and craftmanship. This monitor looks to be no exception, it has a sturdy base that connects to the vertical arm with a single thumbscrew- really easy to setup and install yourself, and pretty rock solid as a unit once the monitor is connected. The monitor design comes together in a matte black finish with a minimalist gaming aesthetic to it, the only visual beyond the ASUS and TUF logos is a red ring around the base pivot. The build offers a premium feel with the very tight top and side bezels, a thicker bottom bezel as you would normally expect, and controls on the right lower rear using a few buttons and an OSD joystick (a feature I like more and more for ease of use over additional buttons). My son loves the pivot and angle options offered by the stand design, there is great mobility/flexibility both left to right and sliding up and down (an almost 6 inch change in verticality you can adjust to), as well as up and down tilting of the screen to combat glare. As a primary gaming monitor (as opposed to your side-hustle monitor that gets used for web browsing, streaming and other multi-tasking stuff while gaming…), it will likely remain in the landscape position in our desk setup. In terms of connectivity, it has a single Displayport 1.2, a pair of HDMI 2.0 ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack for audio. The built in speakers can provide decent sound, but we game with headsets and don't rely on monitor speakers, so the sound quality isn’t really a high priority for me.

    The TUF VG289Q monitor offers a pretty decent expanse of OSD features to help bring out the best of the different game types and environments, with more than a few Gaming Visual Mode presets based on game type, and an ability to customize your own. There is a broad array of calibration tools also packed in, but I have to say that the monitor came really well calibrated out of the box. My son particularly enjoyed the GamePlus menu, which offered a few gaming-specific tools in crosshairs, countdown timers and FPS meters he enjoys having on while playing. Very comprehensive feature-set that caters to folks looking for quick and easy presets (me), or for those looking to make adjustments to every slider and toggle until you calibrate your way to perfection.

    We are using the Displayport to connect to a Nvidia RTX 2070 Super, and are able to take advantage of the G-sync capabilities even though this is a Freesync monitor (which caters to AMD graphic cards). While the monitor has yet to be certified by Nvidia (and will advise you of that in settings), there was no issue with enabling it and validating that it worked through various software and program tests. We enabled HDR in Windows, and while it is entry-level HDR (not VESA certified HDR), you do see the difference in gameplay with it on. Much like my first dive into an IPS monitor, it was pretty astounding to see the visual difference offered in color and depth. It really shines in single-player action/adventure games that are scenery and environment-rich, like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro Exodus or The Witcher 3. I’ve played all three in HD (which I thought was stunning back then), but to revisit them in 4K is a pretty stunning refresh with new depths of color saturation and vivid rendering of details not available on the older monitor. FPS games such as COD Warzone and Black Ops perform pretty well, and we weren’t at all displeased with gameplay or game performance, considering the limiting thresholds of a 60hz refresh rate and a 5ms response time. The particular trade-offs bringing this 4K monitor down to the price range it is in are not at all limiting. Both my son and I are good gamers, but not at the level that those type of advantages are going to elevate our play seriously enough to make it a prime consideration when purchasing a monitor. One FPS in particular my son plays that he noted a heightened difference in was Borderlands 2. Graphically It is a bit more cartoonish in nature than other games, but the leap to 4K over HD really made a difference in gaming experience and really brought a new level of 'pop' to the world for him. Another aspect of the IPS monitor that is great is the wide-angle veiwing for days...it feels like almost 180 degrees of view that is not afforded by the TN monitor types.

    My son’s love of graphic design, art and photography (as well as general media consumption) also take full advantage of everything this monitor offers as a go-to for all his graphic-heavy hobbies. If you play e-sports level competitive gaming, and desperately need the refresh rates and timing to be the apex features, you will trade that for the graphic depth you get here every day in this price range. You get one or the other, but not both. ASUS brings a 4K world that can manage the needs of the skills most everyday gamers possess, and does so with another great addition to its long line of monitors.

    Great 4k gaming monitor at a very good price!

    The new Asus 28” 4k Tuf Gaming series monitor featuring a WLED IPS screen is very impressive for the asking price. I have several high-end monitors that cost more and this Asus is hanging right in there with them. The colors are brilliant and gaming in 4k with this monitor is awesome if you have a good enough card to push it. To start with while unboxing and assembling the stand I noticed that this monitor has some weight to it and definitely seems built tough as the series name would indicate. It has a very appealing design and with the small bezel and awesome stand that articulates in every direction yes even vertically. You can also lower and raise it by sliding it and everything is very smooth. I have it hooked up with a DisplayPort cable that I already had hooked up to my PC but the monitor comes with one. This is the first time I have seen a monitor come with a displayport cable which I was also impressed by and happy to see. I did not have any issues playing games with this monitor and I can tell the difference moving from 2k to 4k while it’s not near as noticeable as moving from 1080p to 2k or 4k it is still definitely worth upgrading to a 4k monitor if you can afford the graphics card to push it. I am actually surprised that this monitor does not cost more because the screen quality is very good if you can live with the 60hz refresh rate. It is plenty bright and details are sharp with great color reproduction. It also has built-in speakers but they lacked good range on the low end but I use a headset so I do not really care about that. This monitor has a push-button/joystick menu control on the back right that is the easiest to use controls for a monitor menu that I have ever used. I really like the implementation of the joystick. It is the first time I have seen or used one like it. Unless you just can not live without a higher refresh rate and can afford paying for it, this Asus Tuf Gaming monitor is a good choice for 4k gaming and general everyday use as well.

    Wrong monitor that passed Bestbuy’s inspection.

    Received the open box (excellent condition) today. ASUS monitor wasn’t even the correct monitor. The sticker of the correct model was placed over this cheap ASUS monitor. No power plug. No screws for the stand. I don’t know how did this even pass inspection to be resell. Then was on the phone with bestbuy for over 6 hours, 4 separate representatives because each kept hanging up. Decided to get walk into my local bestbuy. Got it refunded. Horrible experience. Last time I’ll make a purchase with BB.

    Great value - Great monitor

    ASUS is one of the top brands in computer related products. I have always been confident when buying ASUS products. ASUS does it again with a high-quality reasonably prices 4K gaming monitor. This review is for the 28-inch ASUS monitor model number VG289Q. It has great color with an IPS screen for a very reasonable price. Sure it is 60 hz but a higher hz 4K monitor will add $100’s to your cost. A nice balance of cost and functionality. I also recommend you review the manual to understand all of the different settings available to you. I rate this as 5 out of 5 stars!

    Pros:

    - 4K resolution.

    - IPS panel.

    - Solid build.

    - Fully adjustable; including portrait orientation.

    - Many gaming presets.

    - Included speakers (if that matters to you).

    - Headphone jack.

    - GREAT color!

    - Includes Display Port cable.

    - Freesync/Adaptive-Sync technology

    - HDR10

    - CDI-P3 90% color gamut and contrast performance

    Cons:

    - 60 hz refresh rate.

    - Location of connections.

    - Does not include HDMI cable.

    Unboxing and setting up the ASUS 28 inch 4K (3840x2160) was simple. When opening the package, you will find: monitor; Quick Start Guide; Warranty card; power cord, and Display Port (DP) cable. It is nice that at least one of the cables is included. Most people that are gaming will use a DP connection. If you need to use HDMI, you will need to get your own cable. I connected the monitor to the computer with the DP cable. The computer has an Nvidia 2070 graphics card. You will lay the monitor down and attach the base and handle for moving the monitor. You plug the DC cord and cables into the required spots. This is located just in front of the base on the monitor. I found this a little inconvenient and the base is in the way. Thank goodness you are not changing these connections very often! Your connections are: DC, DP, 2 x HDMI, earphone and a Kensington Lock (for a cable lock).

    The power button is located on the bottom right of the monitor. The other control buttons are found on the rear right of the monitor. Here is their function listed from top to bottom:

    1. Toggle stick allowing you to navigate the menus.

    2. Close – exit menus.

    3. Game Plus:

    a. Crosshair – allows you to choose the crosshair type. This is useful on FPS games. I like the large green circle setting.

    b. Timer – I did not try this.

    c. FPS Counter – shows the frames per second for the game.

    d. Display alignment – used if you have multiple displays.

    4. Game Visual: These are video preset modes. You cannot go wrong with Racing for gaming and Cinema for everything else.

    a. Scenery – for viewing scenery phots and videos.

    b. Racing – my favorite for gaming.

    c. Cinema – my favorite for movies and streaming.

    d. RTS/RPG: for real time strategy and role play games.

    e. FPS: for first person shooter.

    f. sRGB: for photos and graphics.

    g. MOBA: enhances enemy health bars.

    h. User: make your own settings.

    5. Blue light filter: the higher the number to more blue light is filtered.

    There are many other benefits and settings for this monitor. I encourage you to read the manual to understand these. This monitor is AMAZING!

    Sharp monitor. Great for PS5.

    Got this for my PlayStation 5. Setup took about a minute, really nice, sturdy base. Colors are crisp and vibrant. Everything has a photo-realistic sharpness to it, compared to the average 4k tv that adds all sorts of motion blur and processing to everything. It’s most noticeable on games with a lot of tiny text, like Diablo 3. Absolutely a joy to use.

    Tested this with my laptop’s hdmi-out and again, quick and simple setup.

    Only thing I dislike is the ports being under the tv instead of on the side. You got to flip it over to plug stuff in, and it’s awkward to try to hold, and gets the screen smudged with fingerprints, not a dealbreaker, just an irritation.

    For the price, however, you can’t go wrong with this. Doom, Farcry 5, The Last of Us, Spiderman, etc all look better than they ever did on my 40” 4k hdr tv.

    bang for your bucks!

    Pros

    - This a great 4k monitor, if you enjoy having all the 4k crisp graphics when playing PC instead of having high frame rate then look no further

    - for the price for $349 Asus VG289Q is a perfect budget monitor who games on PC/ Console all just a video editor

    - IPS panels also delivers some great colors like a VA panel, its great viewing angles, colors doesn’t fade when you’re off center

    - this monitor also comes with 2 HDMI 2.0 one Displayport, a headphone jack at the back, and built in speakers, ( I wouldn’t rely on these speakers tho but it’s still a nice touch to have speakers as part of the monitor.

    - it’s also equipped with Freesync, of if you have AMD GPU make sure to turn freesync on

    - i’ve tested this monitor on playing Apex legends , Warzone and Rainbow Six, and yes this monitor is only 60hz meaning up to 60fps of games.

    - the game did look great on 4k, MCC on PC looks great with this monitor. and running 60fps on PC did not bother me one bit. but then you switch back to higher frame monitor you realize how amazing it performs and seeing how smoother it is

    - the monitor have couple of game visual setting you can choose from to see what fit your liking on how you want the game to look, I prefer either user or racing settings best

    - black level looks great as well, loading a game from a VA panel to IP you sure will spot how much having an IPS monitor help with the vibrancy of the world in video games

    - but if you would really want to take advantage of this monitor, it’s best to be used for consoles, specially the latest PS5/ Xbox Series X. most of their games usually maxed out of either 4k, and the monitor is perfect for it.

    - Asus VG 289Q also support HDR it’s a positive and a negative on this one, but I wanted to highlight to let you guys know that it’s there and will activate on games that support HDR

    - sometimes HDR says it’s active and sometimes it will be off even tho i’m playing a game that supports HDR

    - playing 4k warzone on my PC compare to warzone on console, the game looks better on console, while on PC you’ll need to adjust settings to make sure you could reach that higher 60fps

    - 28” inc for a monitor in my option is the sweet spot, it’s perfect size for me when I game. i have zero issues reading the text it’s just perfect!

    cons

    - about the HDR on this monitor, honestly it helped a tiny bit, so I don’t consider this a true HDR. it does improve the color in a small way, it’s not enough to make me say wow, the picture quality still look SDR

    - I wish the console provide some shortcuts to switching ports, you literally have to use the setting and choose ports to be able to change it, no way around it

    - that’s including dealing with the built in speaker, to adjust the volume as well, you will need go to the settings. terrible idea.

    TUF gaming VG289q like I said is the perfect budget gaming monitor, it’s so much worth it from what it offer in the box. you have a very clean minimalist from design solid IPS, HDR monitor, having the ability to display and be used vertically is well worth of asking price. high recommend it for the price and for console gamers out there you will enjoy playing on this beautiful gaming monitor!

    Solid monitor

    the monitor self is really nice for what i needed it for. I recently purchased a Mac Mini and needed a monitor. The color contrast is really nice and vibrant. I have also hooked my PS4 up to it and do some casual gaming. I know the refresh rate on this monitor is lower the the recommended needed for PC gaming so I would not recommend it for that, but if you game on an Xbox 1 or PS4, this monitor does the trick. My one knock on the monitor is the transitioning between inputs. It seems a bit clunky to have to use what I can only describe as a joy stick to do all you settings and input changes. Overall, I would recommend this monitor.

    Very good but not perfect.

    For the price this is a very good monitor. My only slight complaint is the viewing angles are a little limited causing some darker areas at certain positions. Clarity of the 4K is good. I just wish that companies would put the 60hz connection on HDMI-1 rather than HDMI-2. I pretty much always forget that and start to complain that the screen is sluggish when it's the port and not the screen. So far I am happy with its performance for the price. I have used much nicer monitors as a Graphic Designer, but this one does nicely on a budget for working from home from time to time. If I did more work at home though, I would defiantly upgrade to a better monitor.

    The service was great and I'm happy with the monitors overall, just having some issues with them shutting off randomly and having green and blue lines come on at random times. This may be a software issue and/or computer issue so it's a work in progress. Overall very happen with my purchase and I'm sure if the monitors are the issue BestBuy will help with no issues. They are good with faulty equipment replacement if needed

    Great 4K screen for the price

    I like the screen, am using it for work and occasional gaming.

    Shipping and setup: Free UPS shipping was fast (3 days) - I ordered on Friday, got it on Monday. It arrived in excellent condition with 3 cables included for: Power, HDMI AND Display port. Setting it up and getting it to run was easy, no software required. I hooked it up via HDMI cable to my 5-year old 17" ASUS gaming laptop with GEFORCE GTX 2GB grafik card.

    Gaming: Immediately tested Starcraft 2, Legacy of the Void campaign. I have to say, while the screen image is very nice, I probably need a faster computer for gaming now, since maxing out the grafik settings of the game (3840x2160 and all other settings on "ultra") resulted in sluggish gaming experience, i.e. scrolling around looked like I could use a faster screen refresh rate. However, at maximum grafik settings the "still" image of the game (no scrolling around) was fascinatingly crisp and colorful with significantly more details in the effects compared to my previous 28 inch 1800x1080 resolution screen. Again, limitations when scrolling around seem to be stem from my older laptop/processor and from my out-dated grafik card, not from the monitor itself.

    As for working, my office is of the dimmer type, so I have not tested the screen in bright daylight. But I feel that the image is very nice and balanced with no glare or flickering or any annoying features. Screen has lots of room and high enough resolution for having an Internet browser and an office application open next to each other for simultaneous work on both.

    Overall, I think this was a very awesome value buy, and I'd definitely recommend it to others.

    Good 4K for the price

    The monitor is very bright and is quite responsive. I use it 70% of the time for productivity and it is easy on the eyes though the colors are a bit inaccurate in certain modes.

    The 30% of the time I game, 2K and 4K resolutions are really good to look at although 1080p gaming seems a bit scaled down on it. Movies and YouTube videos pop on Theater mode.

    Pros: Really good for the price, Bright yet easy on the eyes

    Cons: Inputs are hidden and are hard to reach, colors are inaccurate on some modes

    Very glad I got this 4K monitor. I use it not only for my work but also for my hobbies (photography & video) and I do dabble in the PS4 area often and it shines. For the price you are getting a great monitor for entertainment and in 4K where available. I do wish it had a couple of USB ports. Still. Happy camper with this purchase. Movies look great by the way.

    Good monitor but needs one setting change

    It is a good budget 4K monitor.

    Nice-looking and I like that it has a very small footprint. Although it does lead to wobbling any time you hit your desk accidentally.

    Initially, it was very dim, and I didn't like it. Even in "High Bright" mode. I even thought I got a lemon and going to return it. But then I played with the settings and found one setting disabling which makes the screen go much brighter. Go to Menu -> System -> Eco Sensor Mode and switch it OFF. Dramatic difference.

    I love everything about this monitor, the resolution and colors are excellent. I don't know if it is just this particular monitor, but the only way I can get it wake up from sleep is by pressing the power button. I've NEVER had to do that with any previous monitor.

    Excellent monitor at this price.

    This is overall a good monitor. It has more features, like ΔE<2, 90% DCI-P3, PIP/PBP, not listed in the specifications. You cannot find a better deal within this price range with a 3-year factory warranty. It would be nicer if it was slimmer. The stand is easy to adjust height but it could have been designed more elegantly but again... At this price, 4K, HDR10... you can't beat it.

    Sunken buttons

    Acer really needs to do better in the quality control. The display seems fine, but the buttons panel is sunken into the frame. I can barely press the power button and the setting buttons. I imagine it was an assembling problem. I can’t really afford the time to replace it, so I will just keep it for now. Still would recommend it, but it’s a hit and miss.

    nice bright screen with no dead pixels

    toolless design, no screws. Just lock the stand to the base then set the monitor on and the weight of the monitor will set it at the desired eye level.

    has display port but i had to use HDMI to access my laptop's dedicated graphic card. going USB-c to DP the laptop defaulted to the intel graphics.

    I'm very happy with my purchase and would recommend. especially when it goes back on sale.

    Amazing Monitor for the price

    I was a little concerned, as I am not familiar with Gigabyte Monitors, but the M28u is a fantastic monitor. I was originally trying to purchase the LG 27GP950, but it was unavailable for months. The M28u is cheaper and it has zero backlit bleed. It has a decent HDR, not the greatest, but serviceable if you tune it right on your hardware. It also offers a great color pallette and gaming options.

    I highly recommend this monitor with a set of Media Light bias lighting for the back of your monitor. Great combo!

    4k 144hz IPS KVM HDMI 2.1 hard to beat for the $

    4k 144hz IPS KVM HDMI 2.1 hard to beat for the $

    Easy set up, no eye strain so far. Comes with three power cables for world wide use. Nice thin bezel. Raises and lowers effortlessly. Haven't tried the KVM yet. HDR mode not very useful. Using it in standard mode is great though. Set up is a snap, stand just clicks into monitor back. No RGB, but how useful is that when most monitor backs face the wall anyway. If I could have found the LG 27GN950-B in stock, I would have got that instead (More expensive by around $300 though). Going to 28" from 27" 1440p monitor is not a perceivable size difference, but the 4k bump is impressive in detail. Has improved my gaming a ton. Easier to see other players. Back light edge bleed is noticeable only with largely solid colors on screen. Great gaming monitor, but there are many ones with better HDR and details in shadows out there. For the money it's hard to beat and decent for productivity too. Console gamers with love the latest HDMI connection. Built in speakers not very useful but can be ok for simple stopgap use. Love the non reflective finish on the panel. Ticks all my boxes at the best price. Would buy it again. Pick up at the store was a snap, just had to wait for it to come in. Don't know why shipping isn't an option, unless it's to limit RMA's due to damage in transit.

    Good for Video Conferencing

    These monitors are top notch. I am not a gamer. I just wanted to use them with Zoom for video conferencing. I get great looking video from our office in San Francisco to my home office in Cypress. I have a laptop with two of these external monitors. Every couple of days, one of the monitors seems to go offline, but a computer reboot easily fixes the problem.

    Bought this monitor today. Got it home and connected it to my pc with a 2080ti. No g sync, no overclocking of the monitor what so ever. I completely uninstalled drivers and reinstalled, uninstalled Nvidia control panel and reinstalled with no success. Notice in the photos the Gsync option is not available and anything higher than 60hz is not available because the monitor does not allow me to OC as it is supposed to. The monitor would not give me the option of overclocking. Many people boast about how good this monitor is and I say "nah, no way". I called Asus support to be told that they would call be back in 24-48 hours - I don't think so. You pay $2000 for a monitor, you expect it to work and dang sure expect to be helped in a few minutes, not 24-48 hours later (and that was expedited help and support they claimed). Saved up for a while for this monitor, still looking for a good monitor but I did learn that this is not one of them.

    The price is high but it's a great monitor

    If you were like me, you probably had a heart attack trying to find a G-SYNC compatible 4K HDR monitor for your computer. You could find a 4K but not HDR, or no G-SYNC. I have always bought NVIDIA cards becuase of a then ATI issue way back when...actually i bought 3dfx cards but I digress.

    This monitor is gorgeous and screams quality all over it. I don't use it for just gaming - I also do work on it, and everything pops in 4K at 150% text size. Little touches like the ROG light on the stand is very cool.

    This monitor is absolutely not for everyone. At a minimum I'd say get a 1080TI card to run it (using a lower card probably isn't going to get you frame rates you want). I have not tried the 2xxx series GeoForce cards yet. I figured I'll enjoy 4K on this brand new monitor with an old card rather than with a new card and a non-HDR 4K GSync monitor.

    I hope the price comes down to the masses, otherwise do what I do and save up those rewards zone certificates!

    Unnecessarily awesome

    So this monitor is pretty much the best you can get when it comes to a 27” gaming monitor. 4K, G-Sync, high refresh rate, decently fast IPS panel.... but none of this is necessary. You won’t notice a difference between a 1440 display and this. The HDR and G-Sync is noticeable, but the 4K just isn’t a large enough difference to depict. Interestingly enough you will not get 4K HDR @144hz either. At least not through a display port. With HDR enabled you cap out at 120hz which is more than enough. If you have the money burning a hole in your pocket, don’t miss out! But I wouldn’t prioritize this monitor in any sort of budget.

    Also anyone trying to figure out how to remove the hideous stand in order to mount it properly, there are no instructions regarding bezel removal. Stick a screwdriver in there and pry it up.

    Was hesitant even with a discounted price

    My challenge was looking for a monitor a with excellent gaming performance for pc and console gaming. I also needed a set that was color accurate for photo and video editing (Sony alpha shooter here, IG account @jfranco328). During my research, this monitor offered excellence performance in both areas. I have had it for a few weeks now and have not had a single issue. No noisey fan, no dead pixels. It's just picture perfect. HDR looks great by the way. Definitely happy with this purchase.

    Outstanding 4k monitor

    The monitor is definitely worth the price. The HDR and GSync both compliment the 4k at 144hz. So far extremely nice. But if your coming from a high end 2k monitor you might want to test out the 4k model first and see if you really can tell the difference.

    Awesome Monitor but a few quirks

    Pro:

    - Color accurate out of the box

    - HDR (blinding at times)

    - Little to no Backlight bleed due to FALD

    - Gsync

    Con

    - Expensive

    - Windows Scaling sucks due to its size (32 inch would have been the better option if it was available)

    - Will need a beefy PC to run

    - Fan noise from the monitor can be annoying

    If you have the money, it's the best monitor for gaming out there. Too bad Asus rollout for the Ultrawide is longer than expected as that would be the best monitor to run with the advantage of HDR. I hope nvidia gets a more affordable chipset without needing a fan to cool the monitor in the future.

    Great 4k gaming monitor

    Such an amazing 4k HDR monitor the image quality looks amazing! You diffidently need a high end graphics card for this bad boy tho. A lil fyi I got this monitor price match with amazon so i got a hell of a deal! If you can afford it just buy it and get the extended warranty. So far mine been working great no dead pixels. I have read other people having the monitor fan making a horrible loud noise so far mine hasn't granted ive only had it for a week overall worth the money.

    First upgrade to a 4k monitor from 1080p!

    Coming from a 27" 1080p monitor, an upgrade to a 4k display 32" still makes a huge difference! It took me some time to get used to the even larger display.

    Pros: it's got a consistent display, I checked with the DispplayHDR app and the results bode well.

    Cons: If you like to adjust the height on the monitor, you're out of luck with this model, it only swivels so only angles can be adjusted at one pivot.

    Build quality is quite good, my previous monitor was very wobbly and felt plastic all round, this LG monitor looks a bit better and while still a bit wobbly is fine if you have a firm desk.

    I went through all the settings and they are a ton of them! I had to get used to setting them up for different scenarios.

    The HDR effect is quite good when watching movies and playing games at 4k. Though I mostly play older games they look amazing at 4k and the monitor HDR effect on.

    It is a chore to switch back and forth but with the joystick control, it makes it quite straight forward to make these adjustments. I personally think it's worth the effort everytime.

    I had to scale the DPI to 175% rather than the recommended 150% since I sit much farther from the screen (almost 3 feet).

    Text is sharper at that level and almost all the programs I use scale quite well, there are exceptions but not too bad. I usually put the "Dark Room 2" setting for normal usage and "HDR effect" for 4k movie viewing and 4k gaming.

    I tried using the windows 10 HDR mode and it's a mixed bag, I think the HDR effect of the monitor is enough

    For me, the best part of this monitor (apart from size and resolution) is the color depth. The 10-bit color display makes a big difference when you compare it with an 8-bit monitor. I have an older 27" 1080p to the right and can easily make out how much better and natural looking the colors are on the LG 4k monitor. I feel it's not something you can describe easily, I just compared how a red button looks on the 4k monitor vs how it looks on the 1080p one. The 4k one is rich and deep red with great definition while on the 1080p it looks almost orange in comparison, your mind just tells you it's red.

    I'm excited to jump into the world of 4k and as this monitor is considered a "budget" monitor you really can't go wrong.

    There are definitely higher specced 4k monitors out there, but I am very happy with mine so far.

    I like how the HDMI and DP cables are provided. I use DP as it gives me the full 10 bit color depth due to me using an old Radeon RX 580. I can't get the same 10 bit depth with an HDMI cable due to my video card from what I read.

    My next 4k monitor will probably be something with higher specs like HDMI 2.1 & DP 1.4a, higher refresh rate >120Hz and higher HDR rating. But those usually cost in the thousand range and not worth it unless you need it for professional usage.

    For everyday usage for work and media usage, and gaming and browsing this monitor has been a treat so far.

    Very nice monitor!

    I needed an Ultra wide monitor for some light gaming and for my son's school with Zoom and Google Classroom work. I had bought a Viotek 35 inch Ultra wide screen monitor for $350 at Walmart, specs were 2560x1080p, 144hz. However the colors were a little washed out and resolution didn't seem very good for some text reading, so I looked online to see if I could find a better monitor, so I decided to try a 4k monitor. For the price the LG at $329 sounded pretty reasonable. Once I hooked it up, I was amazed, texts looked way better, colors more natural, youtube videos looked amazing. I realized that since I'm gaming mostly RPG, the 60hz wasn't really that bad. My son even says using this for school work feels better on his eyes.

    LG 32 inch monitor:

    Pros: -amazing resolution/colors

    - nice styling white back plate

    - DP cable included

    -toggle settings switch easy to use under monitor

    Cons- monitor can't move up and down, only tilt

    Not exactly vesa compatible

    It’s probably a very good monitor for the money. But I’ve run into a problem immediately with the setup and wanted to share my experience for others’ benefit ASAP.

    It might technically be vesa mount compatible, but that doesn’t mean you can use just any vesa mount with it. The ports are all located immediately next to the mounting equipment. So if you attach many/most/maybe all mounts to the back, the mount will block most of the ports. The spacers that might come with your mount will likely not be enough to allow you to use the hdmi ports when a mount in attached.

    Best monitor I have ever own

    OMG playing my Xbox series x with this monitor has changed the game for me.... I created a portable gaming station that I even use bring back and forth between my room and the living room so that my wife does not feel alone while she is watching her shows...

    Beside the image quality, I love that it comes with speakers so I can watch games and TV using my Xbox anywhere in my house..

    The saving energy is the best, I have never turned off or on the monitor, it does it all by itself..... you should getter, the best investment I have made so far

    perfect for work and play!

    i've used an old Dynex 1080p HDTV HDMI 1.4 as a monitor for years. i got a new pc with DP and decided i wanted, needed to step up to be able to see true 4K.

    i saw this as the deal of the day, (i couldn't resist this at the Deal of the Day price) researched it and it got great reviews. i also realized it took care of two things for me. it supports DP 1.2 so my new PC is very happy and it has two HDMI 2.0 ports and i connected a Roku Ultra to that and its very happy!

    so first the PC connected DP, it looks amazing. this monitor does very well with graphics and text. everything is crystal clear. it's plug and play and was recognized instantly by Windows 10. the desktop auto scaled perfectly to the monitor, all apps look better and for some of my graphics software i get to take advantage of the 4k/HDR10 display by the software when wanting to work at such high resolutions. i can now watch all videos in 4K/HDR10 that support it and my desktop uses 4k background and looks amazing. everything looks 10x better with this monitor. You will need a good powerful graphics card (with good cooling) to support HDR10, cause it's a Killer and needs a lot of horsepower for sure so keep that in mind!

    second, i had a spare Roku Ultra HDMI laying around and hooked it up to one of the two HDMI ports and all my apps Netflix, Vudu, Prime, Disney+, AppleTV+, MoviesAnywhere, etc. all look amazing, i've had no problems with the Roku or any apps with this monitor.

    now the unexpected monitor extras, this thing has two things that most 4K "monitors" do not have, HDR10 & built in Speakers!

    yep, all of my shows on Roku Ultra that support HDR10 look absolutely stunning with beautifully vivid colors thanks to HDR10 support.

    also, they sound amazing thanks to the monitors built in speakers. they are crystal clear, sound great for almost all viewing. don't expect to get bass or low end beyond what you should expect from monitor speakers, but they still sound very good. the stereo imaging when panning from L to R and the Phantom Center is very well done. it also offers a headphone jack so you could go full tilt and connect this to a 2.1 system to get even better high/mid-range sound as well as the sub to cover the low end.

    there are an nice range of settings for color, picture, power, etc.

    now, for some, one thing that might be a slight put off, you can't adjust the height of the monitor. it only tilts back and forth, but, not side to side either. so, i wanted to be upfront with that.

    also, it includes both DP & HDMI cables so, you don't have to worry about them. i did buy a seperate DP cable 10' because my CPU is about to be moved beyond the length of the supplied cable. just make sure you get a "certified DP 1.2 or greater" cable and you won't have any problems.

    you just can't go wrong with this monitor. it's my very first LG monitor and i can highly recommend this one. i can't believe a monitor could have made so much difference until i got this one!

    bro, buy this.

    this monitor is straight gas. i was gonna return it because i didnt think the frames you lost for 4k was worth it, but after i packaged it up i went back on my 1440p 240hz and i felt like throwing it out the window. the sharpness of 4k is just soooo good, i promise if you buy this you wont be able to go back to anything lower. 160hz isn't as smooth as 240hz obviously but its close enough that it really is a no brainer to choose this over 240 if you can actually run 4k. which means you NEED a 3080, a 3070 wont cut it. web browsing, movies, tv shows, youtube videos, text, games, it is literally a night and day difference in 4k.

    if you got a 3080, this is literally as good as pc gaming gets. it even trumps my ultrawide.

    4K, 144Hz, 5 Stars!

    This monitor is the best investment I've made for myself during COVID. I'm currently driving it with an FE 3080. Coming from a 1080p panel, the 1440p monitor I tried just did not "wow" me the way this one did.

    I mainly game on PC, so I don't really need HDMI 2.1. The RGB lights, while not some revolutionary feature, is definitely nice to have and creates a great ambiance. The OSD controls are phenomenal - tactile and easy to use. The monitor is sharp, bright, and my unit has a relatively minimal amount of IPS glow.

    At $660 open-box with basically no clear issues, this was an absolute steal.

    4k 160hz!

    This is worth if if you’re a pc gamer. It lacks HDMI 2.1 but it doesn’t really matter for me cause i only game on pc. Currently paired with a RTX 3090 and this monitor is amazing! The new firmware will make it OC to 160hz! Picture is also amazing! Upgraded from a Samsung odyssey g7 and have no regrets! If it’s in stock GRAB IT! cause it sells out really fast. The RGB is also a nice touch if you’re into that kind of stuff. 4k gaming is just on whole different level and wont be going back to 1440p or 1080p. Overall its a great monitor and LG knocked this out the park! Ive had this monitor for about 3 days and have no problems with it. Hopefully it stays that way.

    Great display for gamers & content creators

    This is a great monitor for gamers who are also content creators due to its 4K res, high 144hz refresh rate, DCI-P3 gamut coverage and brightness. Sure, it has the downfalls of IPS but it’s still very good. For the price, its not the best value but it is a very nice display and you’ll be happy with it (unless you buy it for HDR due to the eight dimming zones).

    Also, you’ll need an RTX 2000 series card or newer or an AMD GPU from 2019 onwards, except the Radeon 7. I have a Vega 56, so I’m stuck at 4K 120hz.

    Love these monitors, I bought 2 they work perfect. I use them for gaming and video/photo editing and love them. The one catch is for you get the 144 Hz refresh rate you need to use the display ports not HDMI ports. But other than thank love it.

    One note is if you buy 2, you will not be able to use the app that allows you sync the lights to the video you have playing. ( I don't use this feature but it would be nice if it supported 2 monitors )

    Great experience on PS5

    Having come from only playing PS3/PS4 on a regular TV, this monitor had everything I was looking for to take advantage of the PS5's abilities (HDR, 4K, high refresh rate, things my previous setups didn't offer) and the difference in experience even on PS4 was astounding, so I actually don't mind that this monitor is "only" 28" and "only" has HDR400 (which seem to be the biggest criticisms of this monitor). Can't really compare it to others monitors on a technical standpoint from experience, so I'll just say that I'm quite happy with what I see so far and look forward to using it throughout the PS5's life cycle.

    I can also confirm that 4K 120 fps does indeed work on this monitor when using a PS5. I tested this with Rainbow Six Siege (PS5 upgrade version, the only game I have that is capable of 4K 120 fps). The first picture is the output information from the PS5's settings while running Siege, which shows 4K 120 Hz. Additionally, the second picture shows Siege's in-game output information (bottom left corner, has to be enabled in game settings) and the monitor's information (right side). In the case of Siege, it does need to be set to performance mode to get 120 fps (otherwise it'll get 60). It seems like currently the Xbox Series X offers more 4K 120 fps games than the PS5, so just make sure that the game in question does in fact support this on your system.

    In terms of monitor settings (Menu > Settings, third picture), I had PC/AV Mode set to AV for the HDMI port I was using and Input Port Ver. set to 2.1. I was also using the HDMI 2.1 cable that came with my PS5.

    My only "complaint" is that this doesn't come with a physical user manual. Something I didn't know is that I need to get firmware updates for this (although this might be obvious to people that have used gaming monitors in the past), and although this is mentioned in the downloadable user manual, I only learned about this from a comment in a video review of this monitor. I don't think I can post a link, but just go to Samsung Support (Manuals & Software dropdown) and look up this monitor's model number. This is mentioned in the user manual (also in the support section), but make sure your USB device's memory is formatted to FAT32. One issue I had was that even though my device did have FAT32 formatting, the update would fail. I fixed this by getting a different device also with FAT32 formatting, but I made sure that the only thing in it was the .img file I had just downloaded. At the time of this review the monitor came with version 1002.0 from the box, and the latest version is 1004.0.

    Overall it's a great monitor that works as advertised in my experience.

    Great for next gen gaming!

    Let me start off by saying that I did have some issues with this monitor trying to get it to run 120 FPS on the PS5. I was only getting 30 Hz and 60 Hz as available frequencies @ 4k. I was not sure why this was happening because I had no issues with the Xbox series X running at 120 Hz @ 4k.

    After reading some other reviews on here I did the firmware update to the latest version and I connected the PS5 HDMI cable to input 1. I then changed the setting to AV and viola I was able to get the 120 Hz available @ 4k on the PS5. I began playing Devil May Cry 5 SE which looks phenomenal on here!

    My only complaint is that the RGB lighting could be a bit brighter, but other than that is is a great monitor for the price!

    Honest Opinion

    This monitor has alot of great features, hdr isnt perfect but overall without it image and color quality is really good! Fantastic!

    The reasons why i gave it a 4 star is because of 3 things (its a 28inch and could have been 32in, i recieved mine with backlight bleed resulting in bad image during dark scenes and when playinf at night, and you have to update it to get 4k 120hz on a console)

    Other than that it is a good monitor for sure!

    The ultrawide feature is absolutely amazing as well

    Firmware Update makes life so much easier!

    Since BestBuy doesn't allow you to edit reviews..... I decided to write a new one in a different account.

    Long story short, absolutely love this monitor especially after the firmware update. Do yourself a favor and get the update from Samsung's Website.

    I used it for PS5 and PC with a 6900 XT. Great picture, no flicker, etc. It's a good one. Just with the HDR was better and wish the size was a little bigger, but all things considered, I'm so happy with it.

    Firmware made it easier to recognize PS5 for what it's worth, but out of the box it works too if you don't wanna update.

    PS5 4K 120 not working. Beware.

    I had to return this monitor as I could not get 4k120 to work with my PS5. I made sure the HDMI version was 2.1, that the inputs were in AV mode. It tried different ultra high speed hdmi cables that I know work. I own 2 new sony tvs with hdmi 2.1 ports and 4k 120 works great on those. Samsung Customer service was horrible. And for some reason there is a firmware update for this monitor in oter markets but not the US. I will be tring out the new acer nitro next as Samsung has now lost my tv purchases and now monitors.

    PS5 issue at 120hz

    Could not get the PS5 to run at 4k 120hz with this monitor and we tried everything, yes we. I have friends who are very good at bulding PC’s and programming. I contacted all of them on different days to try and resolve this issue to no avail. Including 4 different cables, resetting the system, reading articles and looking up vidoes none of which worked. I hate I have to write this review, buyer beware.

    Overall, awsome monitor!

    I've had this monitor for a couple weeks now and it has been solid for my pc gaming on displayport 1.4 running at full specs (144hz 2160 4k) . Don't let the negative comments on the hdr or 28' size fool you...the screen is amazing and very vibrant. It works with my PS5 at full specs too. Played some hdr games on it and its night/day and will kick on if a game supports it. Or you can just turn on hdr on windows too...unfortunately windows hdr doesn't always play well with non-hdr games as it will switch from sdr/hdr and the screen will disconnect/reconnect for a sec...(windows issue). But having hdr turned on looks great on this screen for mixed use no doubt. I just turn off the winsows hdr feature whenever I play non-hdr supported games. The core-sync feature is neat and displays the brightest color on your screen & projects out the back and on 2 strips in front of the monitor. Could be a little brighter, but static colors look fine. The stand is great/solid and it comes with a silicone strap on the stand to organize your cables. One feature that isn't really mentioned anywhere is that there are 3 customizable buttons on the bottom left of the monitor that you can save screen/picture modes to. So you can switch from FPS to Dynamic to Cinema style screens easily wihout having to hassle with the menu every time. Make sure to update the firmware from Samsungs support site to v1004.

    Finally!

    Great monitor. Wanted one for the sole purpose of using it for my PS5 and Series X. It has everything your looking for in regards to specs. Runs the hdmi 2.1, 144hz refesh rate and 4k. Tried so many options and finally seem to have found the one monitor that can do the job. I ordered it online for delivery, it said next day but ended up getting it a day later. Cant complain since it waa free shipping. I lmow theres cheaper monitors out there but this one fits all the needs of the ps5 and xbox series x. Very happy with it.

    32” LG 32UN500

    This monitor is good for office work, cad drawings, work from home computer monitor. It’s worth the money. I use this monitor side by side together with 32” Samsung UJ59, 32”. Believe me, this dude is better screen resolution and also cheaper. Can’t go wrong with on sale price less than $300. As you can see down below, right side is LG and left side is Samsung.

    Great entry level monitor

    Great quality, especially for the price point. Temper your expectations though. I wouldn’t recommend this for shooters. It’s 60Hz. I play mostly RPGs and this monitor is great for that purpose. The colors really pop and I love the color accuracy. It’s not mini LED or IPS so don’t expect deep black levels. Photo attached is a side by side comparison with Razer Blade 4K OLED

    Reasonable, no disappointments.

    Nothing wrong with this at all. If you’re looking for a 4k 60hz 32” monitor within this price range, you won’t be disappointed. I use it for regular office work on a MacBook pro, and for my PS5. Isn’t as stellar as a TV for the latter, but what else is new.

    Speakers aren’t great, but nice that it has them—fine for watching youtube videos, wouldn’t use them to listen to music.

    Excellent for multi OS and multitasking

    Great monitor for multitasking with different computers and working with programs side-by-side. Easy to switch between different inputs, so you can run Windows on, say HDMI, then switch to a Mac Mini using a Displayport to USB-C cable. When using the monitor, you can easily open windows side-by-side (for example, documents in Acrobat and Quicken) and work between programs. Same for Word, Excel, and whichever browser you prefer. Perfect size without overwhelming your desk. Easy to adjust.

    No Display Port Cable, But Anyhow...

    If you thought "Cables: Display Port and HDMI" in "What's Included" here meant there would be a Display Port cable included, you are mistaken.

    If you thought "CABINET/ACCESSORIES Wall Mount Size (mm) 100 x 100 mm Display Port Yes HDMI Yes" on the LG web site meant there would be a Display Port cable included, you are mistaken.

    If you looked on the front page of the eight page quick setup guide in the box and saw the line drawings of two cables tagged with a plus sign and thought one of them is an included Display Port cable, you are mistaken.

    Online reviews are peppered with the likes of, "Hey. No DP cable!"

    Anyhow, I got one delivered overnight from teh 'zon.

    It was long overdue I replaced the (still) first-rate 10-year old TN panel 25" HP Full HD monitor that did duty with an i7-3770K Biostar Z77 for over eight years and since then this i9-9900K ASRock Z390 having HDMI 1.4, DP 1.2.

    I don't game and don't have a discreet card, so I didn't need a 4K monitor costing nearly twice as much, or more, than the $199 sale price for the 32UN500.

    Once set up properly, this LG bargain supports every mode available from the on board Intel UHD 630 graphics and does so with a stunning visual display to satisfy even the most fussy mainstream PC user. Like me, you might have guessed.

    This is a fine VA panel without the nit-picks touted by IPS devotees; contrast is superb due to the deep, deep black, brilliant white and a nicely rich RGB gamut. Run an OLED test video or two on yoot toob and you'll find it can't get much better at even the $329 price point.

    The only gripe is the inverted joystick on the underside of frame for the OSD access. I actually found my arm getting cramped. But the interface is intuitive and thorough and easy to navigate once your index finger gets used to it.

    The speakers are good for notification sounds, voiced podcasts and videos and nothing more. Music and streamed movie and TV show audio is absolutely awful (as it is for any dinky little built-ins, even in the high end TVs).

    My next monitor... a Holodeck!

    Great Image / Sharp Price

    Nice looking and easy to setup. Colors near perfect right out of the box. Just too bright for me, but by reducing brightness then great image quality. As others point out native 4k is much too small so then with enlarging there is some reduction in text sharpness, but for Photoshop work is wonderful.... easy to see the finest / small details. Very sharp price for serious 'home' photographer.

    New monitor glitchy as hell.

    I’ve had nothing but trouble from this monitor. It’s great when it’s working but it is glitchy as hell. If I let my computer sleep with the external monitor on and connected it will not return to life properly. I have to do a hard shutdown to fix this. I have lost data in this process. If you offered to take it back and refund my money, I would do it. My previous (smaller) monitor worked flawlessly. My wife has it now.

Since its a 4K monitor please be advised you may need to adjust your fonts / application preferences. Menus (etc.) they can get small considering the resolution.

    Excellent compromise

    I got this because I needed integrated speakers. The picture quality does not dissapoint, but does require some tweaking to get it right. The menu is by far the worst I've ever had to use. I know, it's my own fault for wanting integrated speakers, but changing the volume requires pressing 4 menu buttons before I can select up or down on the control.

    Very attractive bezel and stand too. Really satisfied with this purchase. Would have given it 5 stars if the menus were easier to navigate.

    Great 27" monitor

    This monitor leaves other monitors costing hundreds more in it's dust. If streaming video is your passion, this should be your monitor. It is great for split screen use as well because the 4K resolution IPS display has plenty of pixels to go around. A couple more great features is the viewing angle and the borderless design. It is also energy efficient and does not radiate any heat.

    Great little 4K monitor with some surprises

    I bought this monitor to go with my Xbox one x and it looks great after some calibration and fine tuning, the upscaled fake Xbox one x “4K” at 60hz looks amazing but also I noticed that this monitor actually supports 1080p at 120hz, that would technically make this the cheapest 4K 120hz monitor on the market but unfortunately it cannot support this due to hardware limitations. I’m sure if you had a pc you could over clock it past it’s Advertised 75hz vía DisplayPort. The only draw back with this monitor would be the lack of free sync but this isn’t a deal breaker for me since I’ve never seen screen tearing on Xbox before and most games are capped at 60fps anyways. I’ve tried a few of the gaming 1440p gaming monitors and they don’t “pop” the way this monitor does with colors and details on Xbox. I’m sure this would be a great monitor for photo editing too if I had a pc. The stand and menu buttons could be a little better but these aren’t really drawbacks for me. Overall I would definitely recommend this monitor to anyone and I think it deserves more love especially at this price point.

    It deserves 4 stars for screen quality but ...

    The color accuracy and screen brightness are acceptable to my untrained eyes. However, there are some minor problems: without the right driver, the monitor will not enter sleep (screen is dark but the power draw is still high) and the driver downloaded from their web site didn't work -- I had to search the net to find an acceptable driver. The indicator light (power on: blue, in hibernation/sleep: orange) faces downward on the back -- not sure why it is even there if I can't see it?

    The headphone jack won't work with HDMI connection. It would work if I had it connected to through an AVR (unfortunately, with the AVR connection, the monitor does not sleep??)

    Finally the monitor occasionally goes dark for a second right after waking up from sleep/hibernation. I am not sure if it is a monitor problem or it is a video driver incompatibility.

    My previous monitor does not have any issue mentioned above, unfortunately it is only a FHD monitor and doesn't have as sharp a picture.

    I am still debating if I should return it. I can live with any minor problems but I would if the occasional problem of screen going blank becomes more frequent.

    Great monitor for its price

    Factory setting is not for everyone. This monitor requires some setup. I have to increase font to 250% when set resolution to 3840 x 2160. I purchased 1 Dell monitor and one viewsonics. After 2 weeks of playing around I could not adjust both monitors to provide a similar display due to Viewsonics is not bright enough.

    Note! If you plan to use dual monitors it's easier to setup when having same brand and type.

    Makes the PS5 come to life!

    I do not really write a lot of reviews. Let me first start off with what people want to know If you are a PlayStation 5 owner.

    First off: This monitor is true in its product relevancy. It does deliver [email protected] but that is dependent on a few factors.

    The game/application must support 120hz.

    The game/application must be set on performance mode under the Saved Data and Game/App Settings then go to Game Presets and select Performance mode or Resolutions mode and you select Performance mode to unlock 120Hz.

    Check the picture for reference.

    Secondly if you are playing a game like Call of Duty Cold War or Fortnite it will let you know that you are using 120Hz. On Fortnite you’ll have to manually enabled it. For Cold War it actually automatically sets it for you but it disables Ray Tracing.

    On the PlayStation menu screen/home operating system the video information will read as 4K - 60Hz

    Do not worry about that since that’s just the standard for the PS home layout view settings.

    But make sure that the RGB is set as RGB (HDR) that will activate HDR fully in the PS home layout. To do this go to HDR on the Video Output Menu on the PS5 Screen and Video. Turn off HDR and wait for a few seconds the screen on the LG will turn black and then turn the HDR back on and it should now say RGB (HDR)

    When playing the applications or games that support 120Hz usually the Color format will change from RGB to YUV422 (HDR) but you’ll see the [email protected] shown in the picture.

    Keep in mind that this monitor does have the HandShake problem. It takes quite a few seconds for the signal to change in between from SDR and HDR.

    Possibility there will be an update for that in the future from LG.

    Also the VRR is still fairly new for the PS5 so that might come out in a future software update.

    I do notice smooth gameplay and fluid motions. The gaming monitor does heat up but the fan is pretty quiet. I haven’t heard it get loud at all.

    You can also check out the monitors internal software for true signal information.

    You can see that I’m running at 120Hz 4K.

    I am not a PC gamer so I can’t really say how this monitor works for that genre of gaming.

    Other than that this monitor is also good watching movies and TV shows. Looks great on Anime that support HDR.

    I hope this review will help out fellow PlayStation 5 owners.

    First 4k 144hz monitor has now spoiled me

    So I was able to scoop this beauty for to upgrade my PC rig with a 3090 and a 1080 165hz but just making my daily check in on best buy and was eyeing this monitor for quite a while. I had a store credit from a previous item no longer working and I was so close to just settling with a QHD 144hz monitor as the weeks roll by, but then I saw the in stock yellow icon and jumped right on it. Got it as a store pick up so my neck of the woods is not the best especially in these tough shortage times.

    Pro:

    - 4k & 144hz (able to overclocked to 165hz) but you will need a monster gpu to drive this beast just to be on the safe side of things like overall PC performance

    - IPS panel means great colors especially in the daytime (can get bright)

    - 27 inches of 4k is perfect for those with limited desk/room space especially for my case

    Con:

    - Stand is nice even though its plastic, but it takes up a desk real estate which then made me sit a little too close. So I had to get a monitor arm to free up desk space as well as made it more ergonomic for my eyes

    - Not being able to figure out how to use the VideoSync feature as the drivers is buggy from my experience so far (so I gave up messing with that for now as I do not want to break it if I don't have to) So I'll have to minus a star for that, not a deal breaker but it sucks that I can't use that feature.

    - IPS bleed is there but honestly I barely notice it except for some dark scenes and loading screens in games or some video stream clips

    Overall yes this monitor is pricey compared to some others, especially now that next gen gaming is out so there will be more options coming in the near future especially more affordable options with minor differences here and there. But, in my opinion as long as there is the big 2 which is 4k resolution and 144 or 120hz grab it as the other features are pretty much icing on the cake.

    Open box in perfect condition for PS5

    I purchased an open box and was skeptical at first, but the monitor was actually in perfect condition and is still working perfectly fine (all the accessories were in the box as well and nothing was damaged). The monitor clearly shows a huge difference with my PS5 - the graphics are exceptionally detailed and the refresh rates are insane. I prefer to have my games on performance mode rather than graphics (HDR), but I honestly cannot tell a distinct difference between the two due to the 2.1 HDMI. I am extremely happy about the good deal and could not be happier.

    Good monitor...

    4K hdr in a monitor that’s less then $500? It’s everything I could ask for BUT since I’ve been working graves I haven’t put it thru all my rigorous test. So tomorrow I’m finally off and get to test this bad boy in the gaming dept. I know 4ms response time isn’t the best buuut something tells me this will have no problem handling my PS4 pro. Can’t wait to clock out and really use this monitor. But for the past two days it’s been a great addition especially being 32 inches!

    Good, but already have the Best one.

    I really wanted a 4k 32 inch monitor, but I already have the Samsung odyssey g7 27 inch, this monitor is outshining all other monitors, I can't play on this BenQ because the Samsung still look better at 2k, better color better contrast, so I just used the BenQ monitor like 20 minutes, keep changing to Samsung because the diference is Big. I will return it since I won't play on 4k with lower image quality. But the monitor is good if you don't have the best one.

    Worked for one day

    Loved everything about the monitor.

    The sleek design, the thin yet stable stand makes Dell's monitor stands look outdated. The color profile, etc. The USB-C. Price is right.

    I bought this mainly for the USB-C to have a single cable solution with my MacBook Air.

    It worked for the evening that I got it. Except one minor issue - when running Google Sheets on Chrome, the bottom of the screen would flicker every 5 seconds. Very, very jarring. However, other apps and interfaces worked fine, so I think it's more of a Google issue.

    I shutoff the MacBook and went to sleep. Now this morning I turn it on, the monitor says "no USB C signal received, the monitor will now shut off". Restarted everything, unplug and replugged everything, cycled through the input-sources, etc etc. Could not get the monitor to work ever again.

    I have a Dell U2720QM. Plugged the same MacBook Air into the USB C on that thing, and viola I had display signal, meaning that the issue is solely with this HP monitor.

    Very sad. I wish this could have worked.

    The Best Dual Monitor Setup

    I bought two of these monitors to upgrade my work from home setup. These monitors are phenomenal for the price point. The freesync works, they have a USB hub built-in if you're using USB-C to drive the monitor, and best of all, there is no noticeable difference between the colors of the monitors side by side.

    I'm also a light gamer and have used these monitors for the occasional gaming and they are great for that too.

    In addition to working well with Windows, they seem to be great for Mac OS too. I plugged my 2018 Macbook Pro into both of the monitors and it's exactly as I had hoped. They're not "retina" level but I feel like it's pretty close. The USB-C didn't work with both monitors on my Mac though, probably a Mac OS issue running two separate monitors with two separate USB-C cables.

    The only negative comment is that the DisplayPort on one of the monitors died within a few minutes of using the monitors for the first time. Thankfully, Best Buy is quickly shipping me a replacement monitor so I can have two working DisplayPorts again.

    The only way I could imagine these monitors to be better for my need is if HP or whoever manufactures the display that HP uses is to create a 7680 x 2160 curved display that has as many nits and as good as color reproduction.

    Excellent upgrade

    I wanted more screen area in my office and the HP 28" was exactly the ticket. At 4k resolution it allows me to keep several windows open or finally view large spreadsheets. Setup was immediate (plug&play HDMI, displayport and probably others I didn't try). Screen is bright and crisp. Added bonus is adjustable stand--just push up or down, or swing around on the fly. And costs less than the competion.

    AVOID! HP missed the mark on these.

    Bought two, one flickered none stop, researched to troubleshoot. After exhausting all efforts to fix (configure settings, driver updates, PC updates, cable swaps, etc). I returned the flickering screen and ordered a replacement (so this was now my third monitor of this make/model). The replacement monitor did the same thing. So one out of three monitors worked. I purchased a competing/comparable brand (Samsung) of monitors and hooked them to find that they worked without a problem. These monitors were probably just a bad batch that made it to market and shouldn’t have. Save yourself the trouble and go with a different model.

    HP should just stick to making printers!

    Very poor HP customer service. Receivede faulty monitor with green tint.

    The green tint would not go away with any setting.

    Called customer service.

    After hours on the phone wit them - i was told that its my video card that makes image green.

    I was transferred to PAID service, where they told me they are going to charge me for support.

    What?

    My $500 monitor is defective on arrival, and yet they make me belive that is is my fault, and yet - i bave to pay for it????

    Monitor went back to Best Buy the next day.

    Bought Dell monitor instead - works flawlessly with same computer and setup.

    No tint of any color whatsoever.

    Conclusion: 1) HP should stick to making printeds, not high end 4k monitors

    2) never deal with HP support - as they will ask for your $$ To try to help you. Unheard of!

    Cracked Screen and Corner

    My boss has this same monitor brand new and it has been great for him. So I opted to save a few dollars and get a the certified refurbished version thinking it would only have a little wear and tear.

    The monitor I received was a in large, heavily air cushioned boxed, which was nice to see. Once I opened it though, I saw the heavily tattered original packaging. I don't inherently have a problem with the monitor being taped back up in its original packaging, but this was tattered to the point of concern. Like this box looks like it's been some places.

    When I opened it up, a chunk of broken off styrofoam packaging fell out and the protective cover over the monitor was loosely put on with several tears, all of which is never reassuring. At this point I felt lucky that at least all the necessary items were included.

    I set the monitor up and turned it on only to find in the bottom left corner two small cracks in the display with a tiny batch of dead pixels. I looked at the bottom left corner of the monitor's frame and it was cracked, looking like it had been dropped or slammed in that spot.

    With all of that, I think it's a fair assumption that this obvious damage to a monitor was missed during the "refurbishing" process, and not due to shipping because the outer box had so much air cushioning. Needless to say, I'm very disappointed.

    very very poor service by LG - Geek Squad

    I ordered this because this was one of the best budget friendly 4k monitor for mix home+office work as per my findings. when I received this, it was completely unusable, two main issues:-

    A) 2 screws to connect to monitor stand were missing. This being refurbished this was kind of okay and hence turned the monitor on.

    B) Power on without connecting with laptop ( this is good method to check pixel - bleeding/factory issue) and it was bleeding in the 3-4 inches above - bottom left corner.

    C) connect with laptop. used Microsoft paint brush (take a full size - image and fill with different color and check), B) will always there, and another issue found was 2-3 pixels in the center were always white..

    I had no choice but to return !!! initial local best buy store could not find this model in the system and did a lot of scrutiny and checks before accepting back the monitor !!!

    Geek Squad Fail

    Super excited today, I got my confirmation email that my new monitor arrived. I came home and seen a huge box which contained the monitor I order. Opened the box to find the original box inside and package very well for shipping. Took out the box within the box containing my new geek squad certified monitor and found that the box was in great shape. I carefully cut open the box, I found the power cord, two cables, the lower part of the stand and the neck that connects the stand and monitor together. I then removed the monitor and found it in perfect condition as well. I was very satisfied. I seen on the box how to assemble the stand to the monitor. I screwed the neck onto the bottom and then proceeded to attach the monitor. To my surprise, I'm missing the two screws and the cover. So unfortunately I did not get to power it up and take it for a test drive. I packed it back up the way I received it and will be returning it tomorrow. A Geek Squad Certified FAIL! Very disappointed.

    Do not buy! This monitor BROKE my iPhone XS

    tldr; using the "fast charging" port on my monitor completely broke my iPhone, forcing me to buy a new one.

    I purchased this monitor about 2 weeks ago. One of the USB-A ports on the side of the monitor is advertised as a "fast charging" port for your smartphone.

    On the second day of use, after plugging in my iPhone XS for about 15 minutes (before charging, my phone had maybe 60% battery), I noticed that my phone was no longer responding or turning on. I tried powering it all the way down but to no avail. Tried charging it through a normal wall outlet, through my power strip, through my computer: nothing worked. My iPhone is about 3 years old, and it had no known battery or performance issues.

    The next day I had an appointment at the Apple Store, and a tech confirmed my worst fear. Somehow in those 15 minutes of "fast charging" through my monitor, something had damaged my phone's internal circuitry and made it unable to receive/circulate power. The tech noted that this was not just a dead battery issue (in which case they could just replace it), but an issue with the whole phone, and unfortunately the only option I had was to buy a new phone. I took my phone to another 3rd-party repair shop, and they had the same diagnosis that a particular chip had short-circuited, which they very often see when customers use 3rd party chargers or power supplies.

    My Philips customer support experience has been extremely poor so far. Their phone number is difficult to find (you have to call a specific number for monitor support), and many times I've been put on hold only later to be hung up on. It's been over 2 weeks since my phone was damaged (I have since had to purchase a new phone with my own money), and Philips is still verifying my case. Absolutely infuriating.

    I'm definitely never plugging anything else into the "fast charging" port on my monitor, but honestly I would just recommend avoiding this monitor altogether. The damage to my phone combined with the horrible customer service makes it unlikely I'll purchase from Philips ever again. Wish I could rate lower than 1 star.

    Display Port Failed

    After just 8 months the display port failed. (photo attached). Support consists of RMA and doing without a monitor for who knows how long. Since the HDMI port hasn't yet failed I will just use it. Also, from the start the far left side of the monitor is darker then the rest of the screen. Not really noticeable in game but VERY noticeable when browsing the web with white backgrounds. This will be the last Viewsonic product I buy.

    Monitor is great - autodetection works between two different computers hooked up.

    My only complaint is the stand sucks. My last super expensive viewsonic had a stand that rotated and adjusted height by almost a foot. I guess they are skimping on stands now, because this one is super low and not adjustable. Better stand I would have given it 5 starts since everything else is excellent

    Flawless, Eye Filling Display

    ViewSonic has been a leading video monitor maker for over thirty years. This monitor upholds the family tradition. In a typical installation where there will be a keyboard or laptop computer between the viewer and the monitor, this monitor will pretty much fill one's field of vision without chopping off any of the monitor image—a perfect fit.

    At this size and viewing distance the 4K resolution is effectively grainless. For nearly any application the resolution, contrast, and brightness combine to deliver an image limited more by the viewer's eyes than the monitor's performance. Folks who watch high quality video or play action games will appreciate the essentially flicker-free motion this monitor delivers.

    Incredible 4K HDR Monitor for Work or Play

    It is interesting to me how big the monitor market has gotten over the past few years but it makes a lot of sense. For various reasons, must people stare at monitors for more hours a day than they do anything else in their life - so why not make it a great experience? This Samsung 32 inch A700 Series Monitor is a welcomed addition to my life and I think you will be impressed with it too.

    UNBOXING:

    - Of course my first impression was just how big it is! Not big in a bad way because its a very thin monitor with very thin bezels, but its a 32 inch monitor and taking it out of the box I was instantly impressed with it.

    - After unboxing, you have an optional stand to attach to it (which I did) and it was fairly simple. The mount is metal and feels really solid which I like. Of course it also has a space to attach it to a wall mount if you want to do that instead but that's sold separately. Still a nice addition to have!

    - Lastly, it comes with a power chord and HDMI chord so from there you just plug it in and you are ready to go!

    - The Monitor does not have speakers on it (which I don't need anyways) but does have a headphone jack. So it can take in audio and then output it through whatever is hooked into the headphone jack.

    SETUP

    - I think its important to note that when you are setting up any Monitor (or TV for that matter), its important to go both your Monitor and Computer's settings to ensure you have the right setup for you

    - The monitor has its own picture settings you will want to mess with a bit. I personally found that having "Game Mode" "Always On" resulting in the best picture for my preferences.

    - On top of that your Computer, Video game system, or streaming device all have their own picture setting. So make sure you go in there and turn on 4K, turn on HDR, and have the right tuning done within those settings.

    - To me, this isn't a big deal as literally every monitor or TV need to have some settings tweaked to get the perfect set up. But once you do the little bit of work needed, it will look fantastic!

    WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT:

    - I can 100% confirm this is a 4K HDR monitor. I ran HDR on my computer hookup, ran HDR on my PS4 hookup, ran 4K HDR on my iPad Pro hookup, and ran 4K HDR when I connected a Google TV device. A little due diligence but I wanted to make sure it was the real deal and it is!

    - That being said, the screen is gorgeous! I know dual monitors is popular but having one large 32 inch screen is really fantastic. The colors are crisp and the definition is exceptional.

    - I have used this monitor for work mostly and its fantastic. I have no issues with using it all day long and having all this extra space is really beneficial to my work so I am very happy with that aspect! And with the 4K HDR aspect, running a PC or Mac with a Design or Editing software would be very impressive on this with the combination of its size and features.

    - As hinted at, watching movies on this is really a treat. You get to experience full 4K HDR on your monitor and I was impressed! The HDR looked really great and the definition was all there. You could seriously use this Monitor as a TV if you hooked a streaming device and soundbar up to it!

    - Even though it's not advertised as a gaming monitor, you can do some serious gaming on this! Yes it is only 60 HZ refresh, but that is fine for some PC games and console gaming. I have played my PS4 and Nintendo Switch on it and the refresh rate and colors look great on it!

    - Lastly, the Picture in Picture (PIP) feature is a game changer!! As you can see in my pictures, you are able to have two sources plugged in and displayed at the same time. And there are different options like selecting screen size, or location of the PIP, or which source the PIP is coming from. Its just a really useful feature in my eyes and I'm glad Samsung added it.

    WHAT NEEDS WORK:

    - I was not overly impressed with it's brightness. I felt the whites don't pop as much as they do on other screens but I also realize that Samsung is going for the "eyecare" thing with this monitor so they don't want the 32 inch to be so bright it ruins your eyes. But it's still something I wish popped more.

    - I wish there was one more connection port. They have 1 Display Port and 1 HDMI Port. Which works for me, but having a Lightening Port, or USB-C Port, or 2nd HDMI Port would be really helpful with the PIP ability.

    - The stand is pretty basic on this. It does some general tilting but can't be moved up and down for lower or higher viewing. It's not a big deal to me but its still something that would be nice.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    - If you are looking for a monitor that can perform at a high level in multiple areas, this one will be perfect for you. It is an immersive 32 inch monitor that can help you be very productive while giving you high end 4K HDR quality while working, streaming, or playing. The Picture in Picture feature adds a whole other level to multitasking while never having to leave the screen. So like I said earlier, you likely stare at a Monitor for hours on end so why not make it a fantastic experience while doing so??

    I’ve been using a Samsung monitor that I bought a couple of years ago, and by coincidence it’s The same model (only older) as this new monitor, so I am very familiar with it, I was using a 28 inch Samsung 4K monitor,

    So when Samsung sent me their newest entry level 32 inch A700 series 4k Monitor to review, I was very excited.

    Very Important for whoever is reading my review and is having trouble making your monitor look its best when playing with a game console, Go to the menu and under System, go over to PC/AV mode. The monitor is under PC mode by default, if you’re having problems because your game doesn’t look quite right, switch over to AV instead of PC and that helped me a lot.

    So as far as entry level monitors go, this 4K monitor manages to have some good features.

    Other high-end monitors can cost hundreds more if not thousands. So overall you’re getting a good 4K monitor for the price.

    4k Resolution: as everyone knows, 4K resolution is king right now, sure there’s other more expensive monitors that offer 8K resolution for example, but at the moment a lot of that resolution is wasted because there’s not many things that can output 8K. 4K has that sweet balance of high resolution, high contrast ratios, vibrant colors, and of course more pixels than the 1080p resolution of yesteryear, while still having devices that output said resolution such as a 4K Blu-ray player,a PlayStation 5 or an Xbox series X.

    HDR: we’ve all heard of this term when looking at TVs or monitors... but what does that mean exactly? Well I’m not an expert in this field but all I can tell you is that that HDR is always on in this monitor, you’re able to turn it off or adjusted through the Xbox menus (i’m Guesssing a PlayStation 5 or a 4K Blu-ray player has this option as well)

    I don’t know exactly what HDR is supposed to do but I can tell you what it does on this monitor, just imagine playing your favorite video game and your character puts sun a pair of sunglasses, The image just becomes a little darker, and the colors are a little easier to see, for example let’s picture a sunset, with HDR off, you would just see yellow around the sun, but with HDR on, the sun becomes a little darker, a little more orange, and you’re able to somewhat see the round shape of the sun. Grass gets a little darker green, shadows around rocks become a little darker etc. At least in my opinion that’s what I see. I personally don’t like HDR as it makes my games look a little different than what I’m used to, I’m also a beliver that it’s going to slow down the game by a few FPS because of the extra load it’s taking up, but that’s just personal preference.

    Game Mode: what game mode is, it’s a feature that it’s supposed make the monitor have the highest refresh rate possible, I don’t know exactly how much faster it makes it, but it does change the appearance of the screen slightly, when it is on it seems to make the screen a little brighter and a little more “washed” out, just a very slight difference... I’ve also noticed that when you have HDR on, the game mode is disabled. I find myself constantly tweaking my monitor finding the best image for me. You WILL have to do some tinkering out of the box.

    Personal tip... if you have HDR on, the game appears darker especially in dark areas like inside of a cave for example.. i’ve found that going to the games actual menus (not the monitor menus) and putting up the brightness really helps. You’re going to have to do this to every game you play.

    This monitor only supports up to 60Hz, or in other words the refresh rate (in this case this monitor refreshes 60 times a second) this is true with many entry-level monitors, the good news is that a lot of the big video game titles only support up to 60Hz for multiplayer games (at least for now) such as Warzone. this wasn’t a big deal to me. The more “Hz” The smoother the gameplay.

    No sound is available as this monitor (and pretty much all monitors) does not have any speakers. Also no remote is included as this is not a TV to switch the channel etc.

    At first I was very unhappy with the picture image of this monitor, but after spending some time in the menus, I found a way to clean up the image. Still, There’s something about this monitor that I’m not 100% happy with, its either too dark or too bright and the colors are just a little bit off to me.

    hope this review helps.

    Works great for my needs!

    Before submitting this review, I wanted to give this at least one full work week of using it. I was using a very old Vizio 32” TV that was given to me as a secondary monitor and this Samsung is replacing it. One thing that I want to mention is that I’m not a PC gamer, so I won’t review this monitor based on gaming. This monitor was tested out on two Windows 10 laptops (one work, one personal) and a 2017 MacBook Pro (Intel processor). My primary use for this is working from home.

    Features – this is a simple monitor with regards to functions and inputs. It only has two inputs: a Display Port and HDMI. I don’t need a crazy number of inputs, and this suits my needs well. The power and menu buttons are underneath the middle of the monitor, which allows the thin bezel and a cleaner look. This is the first time I’ve used a monitor this thin, but I like it. Getting used to the buttons underneath took a little bit of time, but not too long. The monitor has some cool features like power saving and modes to prevent eye strain.

    Hardware setup – this monitor is extremely easy to setup and comes with an HDMI cable. If you’re installing the monitor base by yourself, you’ll want to keep the shipping foam and protective cover handy, this makes it easier to put it together by yourself. The base attaches by two screws and feels sturdy. The base does not adjust up and down, so if this is something you need, you might want to look for another monitor. You can also attach this monitor to a mount if you prefer to use it this way.

    Software setup Windows 10 – I tried to use Windows 10 Device Manager to go out to the internet for an updated driver. This didn’t work for me, so I hopped on the Samsung website and found a driver for Windows 10 (.exe only, no .dmg for Mac users). Since I’m using Microsoft Edge, I had to clear bypass the security settings to keep the install. When I opened the install, the first prompt was all in Japanese. It’s easy to navigate past this and I still got the driver installed. I didn’t notice much of a difference after it installed, except that Windows has a dedicate color profile for the monitor. Instructions also state that you can download an Easy Setting Box software, which I downloaded and installed, but didn’t mess around with too much. Looks like you can split your screen into different sections, which is cool, but I am kind of set in my ways with how my apps are setup on this monitor for work. When I first got the monitor, the device driver didn’t show up on the Samsung website, but I eventually found it. This was a tad clunky, because I did select the right options and only saw the manual and quick start guide.

    Mac OS Big Sur – There is no dedicated driver for Mac OS Big Sur, so I just plugged it in and used the System Preferences > Display settings to change resolutions and color.

    Resolution – Compared to the TV I was using; this display is so much better. I am using the default max resolution of 3840 x 2160 and don’t have any issues. Both Windows and MacOS set the resolution to the highest by default. Text appears to be crisp, clear, and the colors on it look very nice. This monitor is also easy on my eyes, so I don’t feel as much strain when I’m done with my workday. It doesn’t appear that I have a powerful enough built-in graphics card on my Windows 10 laptop to support HDR, but it still looks good. My MacBook Pro resolution still looks great as well.

    Overall, I would recommend this monitor. Again, I am not a PC gamer, so I am not reviewing that aspect of the monitor. This suits my work needs and the resolution makes it much easier on my eyes. This monitor does what I need and looks great! My only gripe is that it took me a little while to find the driver, even though plug and play worked just fine with no issues.

    Perfect 4K monitor for multitasking and work!

    I was looking for a quality 4K monitor for remote work and got Samsung A700 32” 4K monitor. Setup is relatively easy. It comes with a monitor, stand, power cord, and HDMI cable. I have followed the instructions to assemble the stand. I have connected the windows laptop to the provided HDMI and turned on the display. The quality is much better than my existing 24” FHD monitor. With HDR10 technology, colors will look vivid and TUV-certified eye comfort reduced eye fatigue and allow me to work continuously without any tiredness of eyes.

    With 4x pixels of Full HD, this monitor provides every detail with enhanced depth, and 32” inch is the perfect size for arranging multiple windows of email, chat apps, and other applications at the same screen. The borderless design looks great, and it reminds me of the design of QLED TVs from Samsung. The menu buttons are under the monitor and easy to use. However, there is no adjustment that can be done on the stand and no built-in speakers on this monitor.

    This monitor has a very basic configuration. It is 4K with 3840 x 2160 resolution with a 60hz refresh rate. It has a contrast ratio of 2500:1 with a response time of 5 milliseconds and an aspect ratio of 16:9. With 300 candela per square meter brightness and HDR 10, this monitor provides great clarity and detail. I am using this monitor for office work and not used for gaming as it requires faster response time, better contrast ratio, and a 120Hz refresh rate. This monitor is good, and it is not with a better configuration. There are basic features missing like stand adjustment, built-in speakers, and USB C connection. However, this is the perfect monitor for office work, photos/videos editing.

    A great mid-range 4K monitor, but not perfect!

    So I am a serious pc gamer. When I am not working or at the gym, I’m typically playing PC. Mainly warzone plus a few other titles.

    So I wanted a second monitor with a 4K resolution at 32 inches. To play high fidelity vs high refresh rate.

    So I got this one hoping it to be as beautiful as my 27 inch ips that I have as well. And being that this monitor is VA the colors suffer a a tad bit. The viewing angles are actually very good. But the panel does not “pop” as I hoped. That’s why I gave 4 stars. Now 4 stars is a definite recommend. But Samsung makes great panels. And I know this is not a Qled so it’s understandable. The other minor issue is the hdr. HDR is great especially paired with ray tracing. But since this panel has a lower nit brightness it suffers a little bit. I still use the hdr either way. But I wish it was brighter.

    While gaming the response time is rated at 5ms I believe and it feels that way. Very smooth at the faster setting. No issues there. Screen is big so that makes up for those minor issues.

    Menu buttons are very easy to use and sit right in the middle under the screen. The stand can’t be adjusted but it sits at a perfect height. And is a flat stand design which I prefer. I can rest my little Bluetooth speaker on it. Simple but clean design over all. Great overall picture quality, great size and a fair price for what this monitor offers.

    Perfect For Working From Home!

    Perfect For Working From Home!

    If you are in the market for a 32” monitor, then there is a lot to like about this Samsung product. Samsung is known for making quality displays, and this monitor does not disappoint. It is an excellent choice for working from home and personal computing needs. The 32” size has vastly improved my work from home life.

    This monitor replaced a 25” one that I have been using to work from home, and the improvement due to the size difference was immediately noticeable. Not as much the picture quality, which are both great, but the jump in screen size. I have really noticed the difference and working is not only more efficient, but easier on my eyes. Now that I have used a screen this size, I am hooked. My p;d 25 inch monitor will now live in my work area as a second monitor, next to this Samsung which is now my primary monitor.

    The overall picture quality is excellent. The colors are vibrant and very rich. The contrast is superb and is capable of producing nice black levels. Contrast is crucial to picture quality and is what causes the picture to look really good. Overall I am impressed with the picture quality for general computing activities.

    HDR Capability:

    Is this monitor 4K UHD capable? Most definitely yes. I need to address HDR at length because the topic needs a detailed explanation. To test the HDR capability I used a Dell XPS 13 that is equipped to render 4K UHD HDR via Dolby Vision. I have attached pictures of the settings screen from my laptop to show what a PC that is HDR capable will show in the settings when it detects a HDR capable display. In order to get a HDR picture on this monitor, a HDR capable device must be used. Important to understand is that even with a HDR capable device, HDR is app and game specific. Even within a specific app, Netflix for example, HDR quality will vary wildly from title to title as each show or movie is mastered differently and with varying levels of quality and effectiveness. The same principle applies to games. In other words all HDR is not created equally, and HDR quality and utilization varies from app to app and title to title. I watched a few HDR titles on Netflix and Vudu and was pleased with the results.

    This monitor is equipped with 1 HDMI input and a DisplayPort input. Thankfully manufacturers are moving away from the antiquated VGA input and opting for the more capable Display Port standard. But I wish PC manufactures would simplify things and just use HDMI exclusively. There are no internal speakers but there is a rear headphone jack.

    Decent monitor thats great for work use

    My first impression wasn't the best on this monitor. As I was taking it out of the box, gently mind you, the bottom plastic frame edge snagged on the styrofoam packaging and was pulled off partially. It snapped back on no problem, but it shouldn't be able to come apart so easily.

    Setting it up is easy enough though. I have a triple monitor mount arm on my desk that I use for work which currently has 24" monitors. This monitor fit easily on the center arm and the mount's bracket fit perfectly onto the back of the monitor. Of course it does come with a stand too if needed.

    After plugging it in and hooking it up, my computer recognized it immediately and the display came on and in the default 4k resolution. Picture looked perfect and I didn't really need to make any adjustments at all.

    As a software developer, upgrading just one of my smaller monitors to this larger 32" has made me much more efficient. The extra screen space makes it so much easier to work and navigate between all the various windows I have open at any given time.

    For my typical work day, I actually prefer to set this monitor at 2k resolution, since 4k tends to make everything tiny, especially lines of code, albeit clearer and sharper. Obviously some fonts can be increased but then it becomes a hodge podge of font sizes. That's actually what's nice about this monitor, you have the option to use it however you want, making it quite versatile.

    Working from a home office, I use this monitor for more than just work. I also stream on it and play some online games. And when it comes time for that, it's easy to make the switch back over to 4k resolution, and use the monitor to its fullest capabilities. Although the 4k picture is amazing to look at, those capabilities do fall short in some areas.

    I decided to run some video quality tests to see how well it performed, and for many of the tests it performed beautifully, including for black levels. Where it fell short was with color banding and motion artifacts.

    Overall, it's a great monitor for everyday use and especially as a work monitor. The 4k picture is more than good enough for the average user who watches 4k content occasionally or is a casual gamer. If it were for anything more demanding like hardcore gaming, I'd probably opt for something a bit more capable.

    Great 32" 4K HDR Monitor!

    Samsung A700

    The Samsung A700! Out of the box, you get the 32” 4K panel, base stand, HDMI cable, power cable, and a manual booklet. The monitor offers HDMI & DisplayPort ports for video and a 3.5mm jack so you can hook up to headphones or speakers (the monitor itself does not have speakers). Setup is fairly simple and took less than a minute. Connecting via HDMI & DisplayPort both work as intended.

    Playing 4K HDR content on this monitor is quite decent. Not as good as an OLED panel, but in relation to other LED panels the Samsung A700 produces good colors especially for the asking price. I was able to playback 4K HDR content from my desktop, laptop, Chromecast Ultra & Chromecast TV.

    In terms of gaming performance, there is very little lag that is visually perceptible. I was able to play a few titles from my PS4 Pro & desktop. Though the PS4 Pro does not really do well with 4K gaming, my desktop was able to push out 55+ FPS for most titles via my 2080 TI. The monitor looks and feels great so far.

    In terms of mobility, the monitor is limited to forward & back tilt. The monitor does provide VESA mount on the backside, so you can get a 100x100 VESA mount or arm to bring in more mobility that suits your viewing height. I currently have it set up on a VESA arm and personally don’t use any of my monitors without an arm.

    Overall, i would highly recommend this monitor for anyone that is looking for a simple 4K setup. For the asking price, you are actually getting a pretty decent monitor!

    Jack of All Trades But Master of None

    SUMMARY:

    This is an interesting monitor as it brings all the smart features of your Samsung TV's but to a monitor. Seriously, it’s packed full of them. But if I could sum up this entire monitor with a single saying it would be this. It’s a jack of all trades but master of none. And I think that is why this monitor is very hit or miss for people.

    AETHETICS/BUILD QUALITY:

    Starting off with aesthetics. This monitor is gorgeous and quite slim. It allows you to either use the stand, which is quite slim without any adjustments, or you can use a VESA mount. It even comes with a remote. Which is a new experience for me since this is considered a monitor. The remote is very nice, the same as you get with a Samsung TV. It has good weight and the buttons feel premium. However, they are limited and I would have preferred to have a few more. Unfortunately, due to this the onboard controls are lacking. There is a single button that you use to navigate by pressing it and then you hold to select. This button also serves as the power on/off. Overall build quality is great. I noticed no creaking or issues.

    PORTS:

    The ports are a bit unique as well since this is A. considered a monitor and B. a 4k device. It comes with two HDMI ports (2.0 capable of 4k 60 Hz 8 bits which was tested on a premium HDMI cable and RTX 2070) and a single 60-watt USB C port. But NO display port. The USB C connection is neat. As I was able to plug in my iPad Pro along with my Laptop and it not only showed the content but also charged the device. Which I thought was awesome. One thing that bothered me though is that when I put my computer to sleep it would say it couldn’t register a source and then would take 60 seconds to go into hibernation. Where my other monitor would do it immediately. So, I just turn it off instead. Which is neat because the on/off animation is cool looking.

    FEATURES:

    It supports Wireless DeX which appears to be a cool feature. But since I don’t own any Samsung phones or Android peripherals it doesn’t work for me. However, it does support Apple Airplay which did work just fine but I found the resolution and color depth to be lacking. It also uses the Tizen interface which I would assume supports all the same apps as their (Samsung’s) TV’s do. I found the interface to be slightly sluggish. But for the price consider it to be exactly where it should be.

    PICTURE QUALITY:

    Overall picture quality is good. Colors are accurate and skin tones look good. Despite it being an 8-bit panel. With it being 4K I expected it to be 10-bit. Blacks are pretty black due to the VA panel. But contrast doesn’t appear to be as good as I would expect for a VA panel. Also, since it’s a VA panel it doesn’t have the best viewing angles. I just said VA way too many times. Additionally, I find the brightness to be adequate but not what I want. In comes in at 250 nits. Which by today’s standards isn’t very bright. I consider my minimum to be 350 nits. With high tier monitors (costing at least 2 - 3x as much as this one) coming in around 1000 nits. But this is NOT an HDR monitor so I’m not that surprised. There is a setting under the system setting that automatically adjusts the brightness based on room light. This is On by default and I think is the reason why most complain about the brightness of this monitor because it doesn’t do a great job at adjusting. Once I turned this off and adjusted the brightness in the regular screen settings I no longer had an issue with the brightness as long as I wasn’t in a bright room. Last, when it comes to the overall sharpness of this screen I find it to be not be great and it can look blurry at times. Which shouldn’t happen with a 4k monitor. I also found the latency to be a bit higher than I personally like for gaming. I’m not saying you couldn’t use it for gaming but it’s on the slow side when it comes to that sort of thing.

    CONCLUSION:

    I really like that I can use this monitor for a bunch of different things. Such as connecting it to my main PC, then also being able to quickly connect it to my tablet or laptop via USB C. And if I want to watch any streaming media I can just access the smart features. I also found the speakers to sound really good for a monitor. So, if you are looking for a single monitor that can do a bunch of different things this thing is brilliant. If you are wanting fantastic picture quality and not going to use the other features then I’d recommend going with another panel. As the only thing that doesn’t make this an automatic recommendation is that the picture quality while being very solid isn’t great which is a bummer. It feels like I’m buying an entry level panel but getting charged a mid-tier panel price due to the other features. For me personally, and my setup I’d prefer a better panel and sacrifice the other aspects. But if I were back in college or a high school student I’d be all over this guy.

    Innovative Hybrid 4K UHD Smart TV/Monitor

    The Samsung AM702 4K UHD Smart Monitor/TV is a really interesting product that is amazingly feature packed and versatile. The more I’ve played around with it, the more impressed I am with it. I think this is one of the most spectacular values I’ve seen in a monitor/TV. It has 4 main use cases:

    1. You can use it as a Smart 4K UHD TV.

    2. You can use it as a 4K UHD Monitor hooked up to your PC.

    3. You can use it by itself as a terminal to connect to a remote PC (RDP) or the cloud for productivity work. For example, with just the monitor alone (and a keyboard and mouse), you can use Microsoft Office 365 from the cloud.

    4. You can use it in Wireless DeX mode that allows you to use your supported Samsung phone or tablet as a computer.

    It has tons of cool features:

    1. It has WiFi 5 for networking and connecting to Samsung soundbars and surround speakers.

    2. It has Bluetooth 4.2 for keyboards, mice, gamepads, speakers, headphones etc.

    3. It supports HDR10 and possibly HDR10+

    4. It supports advanced picture processing like motion smoothing.

    5. It supports Airplay2, screen mirroring and mobile casting.

    6. It supports USB 2.0 peripherals such as keyboards, mice, and external storage devices.

    7. It has voice assistance and control with Bixby.

    The monitor came with a nice bluetooth remote, an HDMI cable, a USB-C cable, a quick setup guide and 2 AA batteries for the remote. Set-up was very simple as you only needed to screw a few Philips screws to attach the base to the monitor. The monitor was huge but very light weight and slim with thin bezels.

    Powering up, you go through a series of menus to connect to your WiFi network, setup a Samsung account (I already had an account because of previous Samsung products), setup Bixby, and then you can install any apps you want from the app store.

    Overall build quality seemed very good. At the upper left edge I noticed there was some spacing between the edge of the glass and the bezel but it didn’t bother me.

    Inputs include 2 HDMI ports (HDMI-1 supports ARC), a USB-C port that can be used for display and supply 65W for charging, and 3 USB 2.0 ports (one of which is also used for service like updating the firmware) for attaching peripherals.

    Since a PC hooked up to a monitor can also stream NetFlix, Disney+, Amazon Prime and YouTube, why would you need or want a monitor to be “smart”?

    One good use case came to me when I hooked up a laptop to the Samsung AM702 that hadn’t been upgraded in a long time. It took about 30 minutes to upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10 but I was able to entertain myself watching YouTube videos during the process. If I were using a regular monitor, I would have been staring at my laptop screen while it was updating.

    With a smart monitor, you can turn on the monitor and quickly go to your favorite app to immediately start streaming. You don’t have to wait for your PC or laptop to boot up. Most PCs and laptops also emit fan noise while they are ON which can be quite distracting. Using just the Samsung AM702 to stream is super quiet and uses less energy.

    Finally, this is a real 4K UHD TV with some fairly high end video processing that most computer monitors do not offer. So, streaming videos and watching movies from Blu-rays will potentially offer better quality in TV mode than in monitor mode.

    As a Smart 4K UHD TV, I was very impressed with the image quality. The image was sharp and colors looked rich and natural. It has support for advanced video processing such as HDR10 (some specifications on the web indicates it also supports HDR10+ but the user manual makes no mention of it), Contrast Enhancer, Jutter Removal, LED Clear Motion, Gamma, Color Tone, Color Space Settings, Shadow Detail, White Balance and many more which are not normally available in a computer monitor.

    Playing an UHD movie on Vudu indicated that HDR was being used but I couldn’t actually find any explicit HDR settings in the menus.

    This was my first time using Samsung’s Tizen OS and overall I found it to be intuitive, fast, and easy to use. The Tizen App Store has most of the apps I want (NetFlix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, Vudu, Hulu, YouTube, HBO Max, Plex etc.).

    The only app that I wanted but was missing was Peacock. Overall, I found the app store to be very good.

    While mostly intuitive, I found the options for picture adjustment to be a little confusing. Some of the confusion was the result of not being familiar with Samsung’s terminology and not having a clear idea of how the picture presets, custom expert adjustments, and different source inputs (HDMI-1, HDMI-2, USB-C, and Smart Apps) all interact with each other.

    Sometimes when I make custom setting adjustments or switch back and forth between presets (Dynamic, Standard, Natural, Movie, Filmmaker), the effects are not consistent.

    Also, some presets and custom expert adjustments were only available on certain source inputs. Only Standard and Dynamic presets were available in USB-C. Actually, Game Mode was also available but it was confusingly accessed through another menu. Filmmaker mode was not available using the USB-C source input.

    I looked up Filmmaker mode and it’s a recent standard created by the UHD Alliance which is meant to ensure that we get the best cinematic experience by overriding all video processing such as motion smoothing to achieve the proper frame rate, color and aspect ratio as intended by the director.

    With Filmmaker mode ON and watching Disney+, it did feel like I was watching a movie in my local theater. Most movies are filmed at 24 fps. Looking at the user manual, 24 fps is not supported by the USB-C input. For 24fps you need to use the HDMI inputs. This is probably one of the reasons why Filmmaker mode isn’t available on USB-C.

    To me Filmmaker mode is a very high end feature and I’m very happy that it is available on this TV/Monitor.

    The built-in 5W speakers are surprisingly good from such a slim frame. I normally have it set at 20 (out of 100) and it was more than loud enough for me. There are 2 additional sound modes called Adaptive and Amplify. I’m not exactly sure what they do but Amplify seemed to bring out vocals. You can also connect it to wireless or Bluetooth speakers for better sound if you want.

    In summary, I found the Tizen Smart TV platform to be intuitive, fast and easy to use for streaming apps. Moving between apps was very fast. It is also very powerful and comes with many options and customizations that are usually found in higher end TVs.

    As a 4K UHD Monitor hooked up to my laptop using the USB-C input, I was at first a little disappointed with the screen brightness. Things seemed a little dull compared to my laptop screen. Text was clear but the contrast of black text on a white background didn’t meet my expectations. Text wasn’t as black and crisp as I wanted it to be.

    Playing around with the settings, I eventually set the picture to Game Mode and that seemed to do the trick for me. Now light text on a dark background and dark text on a light background look fantastic and are crisp and clear. As a programmer, text clarity is very important to me.

    Game Mode does something similar as Filmmaker mode in that it turns off most video processing to reduce lag. Video processing that is designed to improve the picture quality of video by smoothing motion might make static images like text appear softer. By bypassing most video processing, Game Mode is actually a good mode to use for computer productivity and not just for games.

    While the Samsung AM702 lacks some of the newer features (Freesync, G-Sync, high refresh rates etc.) aimed at gaming, it does have features like Game Mode (bypasses video processing to reduce lag), HDR (makes graphics more vibrant) and Ultrawide Game View (changes screen to a wider 21:9 aspect ratio). These features make the Samsung AM703 a pretty decent gaming monitor. Games like Witcher 3 looked and played great.

    Using Remote Access, I was able to run Microsoft Office 365 using just the monitor and a Bluetooth connected keyboard. I thought this was pretty cool. You can also remote desktop to another PC. This TV/Monitor is basically a thin client computer all by itself!

    Another thing I noticed is that the Samsung AM702 detected my HDHomeRun tuner on my network and I was able to view live TV with it. It didn’t have a TV Guide but instead presented the channels as folders.

    This TV/Monitor is jam packed with so many features that it is almost impossible to test them all out.

    I think this product is perfect for someone who lives in a small space and would like to have something that can double as both their main home entertainment center and as their productivity PC workspace.

    Not only do you get a Smart 4K UHD TV with a higher end feature set, but you also get an excellent 4K UHD PC monitor too. I think it’s the best TV/Monitor value out there. It has plenty of connectivity options to grow with the user. Nothing comes close to it. It’s an amazing value.

    Great Monitor/TV Hybrid

    Great "little' 4k monitor for your everyday needs. Samsung clearly labels the AM702 as a monitor but it doubles as a fairly nice TV as well. Unboxing and setup was fairly simple. Just need a Philips head screwdriver and you're good to go. Screen can be mounted as it is VESA 100x100 compatible.

    Interesting note for this monitor, Inputs only include 1xUSB-C and 2x HDMI connections. Found that rather odd not to include DisplayPort but nonetheless does not hamper it's abilities at all. I ended up using the USB-C port to charge my phone and tablets and both HDMI ports for my PC and the other for my PS5.

    I did notice some others state they had brightness issues. I did not experience anything of the sort. I think when setting up the monitor for 1st use, it does ask if you want to enable an auto dimming feature and to those who rush setup, maybe that was chosen? You can of course go into the system settings and change it there too.

    The design is simple yet very nice. Non-curved almost bezel-less makes it a very attractive screen to be looking at. Web browsing, streaming even school work on 4k looked good. Did a bit of gaming as well and noticed that it does max out @ 4k 60hz (not a big deal for me) and even though it is 4ms response time, I did not notice any ghosting what so ever. I did use the DEX feature, and it works as intended. I like having my tablets on a 32" screen sometimes. Mirroring and even the Tap feature via Smart Things app all work.

    Sound is adequate at best, but show me a tv/monitor with great built-in speakers. For a small room/office or even a school dorm, I say it is close to perfect.

    Owning a few Samsung TVs, the monitor has a very familiar feel to it. Turning it on pops on with a HUB on the bottom like my QLED or UN75. I even had to stop using the remote to turn on the monitor as it kept turning on my TVs in the background (not an issue, it's my fault for that lol). Luckily there is a manual power button on the bottom middle. The hub itself has the standard apps like Youtube, Amazon Prime, Netflix etc and after setting up WiFi the stream quality (depending on your ISP) was flawless. Auto detected 1080 and 4k content.

    All in all, I do recommend this monitor for a multitude of reasons. Size and screen quality are on par. Sound is decent to use as a TV in a room/office. Samsung includes the USB-C and HDMI cables for you. Picture quality is great viewing FHD and UHD content. Screen is great as a 2nd monitor or as a single unit for TV/Streaming and Gaming.

    Another thing to note, the screen does NOT swivel but can be tilted up or down. So if you plan on moving around, note that this is a VA panel and the viewing angles will differ to everyone depending on where you are staring at it from.

    Much needed Smart Monitor

    >> Overview

    This is one of the better ideas I’ve seen in a while. It is natural to ask oneself, why a regular monitor couldn’t work similar to a TV (with applications to allow streaming), especially if one had invested big bucks on an otherwise dumb 4K monitor. I wanted to have a bigger 4K monitor, at least a 32” size, to extend the view from my main laptop, a Surface Book. I also wanted the capability to watch shows/movies directly on it as opposed to streaming them from my laptop. Despite some missing features and details, e.g. no DisplayPort (DP) connectivity, the Samsung AM702 32” monitor is the perfect man for the job.

    Pros: easy switch from duplicating/extending your screen to streaming video, streaming apps available, several connectivity options to choose from, and most of all a 32” 4K monitor.

    Cons: no DP connectivity, not too-bright colors, and somewhat restricted viewing angles.

    >> Setup

    The device is easy to assemble and configure the first time, nothing really worth mentioning here, just some observations:

    - The stand that comes with the computer is not height adjustable, which kind of sucks as there are monitors out there that come with that feature (my 4K 27” Dell has it).

    - Stand doesn’t feel solid/stable, so I wouldn’t place the stand on top of books or similar to raise the height (as I sometimes do with monitors whose height cannot be adjusted).

    - Wall mount is separate from stand. Most monitors have the stand/wall adapter/connector at the same place (well most TVs have feet as well as wall connectors).

    - Some features require you to have a Samsung account (I have way too many accounts, will wait until I really need to create one).

    >> A TV or a monitor?

    To be accurate it doesn’t feel like a full TV neither a full monitor, but the combination plus the added features make this one a killer combo:

    - Missing to be a complete TV: Antenna/Cable connector.

    - Missing to be a complete monitor: DP port.

    >> Who would benefit the most from this combination?

    I write code most of the time and connect to my remote work machines from my laptop, but I also frequently watch videos on streaming applications. I have found that the monitor/TV combo to be very convenient in my case, when taking a break from work, I can watch something on the Samsung AM702 while still working on something on my laptop if needed (and not spending CPU cycles on streaming).

    I picture this to be the real deal for a College student stuck in his/her small/shared apartment with a small desk. The Samsung AM702 32” monitor would allow to do work/study from the laptop on a bigger screen as well as sit on the couch or lay in bed while watching some shows on TV.

    >> Video connectivity

    This monitor/TV has several connectivity options: wireless, HDMI and USB-C for video. Nevertheless, be mindful and consider the connectors/ports your computer has:

    - HDMI. I’ve found that HDMI doesn’t really work for resolutions below 4K. I have a docking station that supports up 2660x1440 through HDMI, but when trying to place that resolution on the Samsung AM702, it would show an unsupported resolution message. So, I had to go back to just HD resolution which made the big screen awkward when compared to the smaller 3000x2000 resolution of my Surface Book. I was not very pleased with this.

    - Wireless. First wireless connection attempt worked flawlessly (and at 4K). However, if you care about image and video quality this is not the best option (but hey, use the TV mode for watching videos then, right?). Nevertheless, wireless casting is very convenient (especially when projecting from your phone).

    - USB-C. Then came USB-C to the rescue. My Surface Book has a USB-C port and connecting it to the Samsung AM702 provided the best experience: I had an extended 4K screen running at 60Hz with great image quality. I would say that this is the “native” mode of connecting to this monitor.

    That being said, I also have a Surface Dock which only has miniDP ports for video (I have the miniDP to DP cables). I would have liked to just connect my Surface to the docking station and be done, but given that the Samsung AM702 doesn’t have a DP port, I had to use the provided USB-C cable to connect (an extra cable to worry about). This is not really a deal breaker, but something to consider if you are one of those people that want everything perfect. I would give this monitor a 4/5 rating only because of that.

    >> Picture

    Colors are nice, not too vibrant but it is 4K. Video is also nice, I like the fact that I can be working and next time I can be watching Netflix on 4K. It could be a little brighter, though (when compared with my Surface Book). The view from the side is not that clear; but, you are using this to mostly see/watch something while directly staring at it, not from the side, so I’d say it is fine for me.

    >> Sound

    Ok, even when connecting wirelessly, the sound coming of this monitor is great for its size. I am not expecting a 5.1 experience here, but I like how crisp the sound comes. Well, if you are not happy with the speakers provided by this device, then you can use the Bluetooth connectivity to connect to your preferred sound device.

    >> Smart features

    Several useful applications and, to me the most wanted one, Netflix, plays just nice. I haven’t explored the store, but it looks like there are plenty of possibilities for applications.

    >> Some notes

    This monitor has so many features to try. Just to name a couple, I have yet to try the Remote Desktop option (looking forward to it) and I haven’t used the voice commands as of yet (the latter needs a Samsung account and I don’t see the need to use that feature yet).

    More Like A TV

    The 32" Samsung AM702 is a beautiful 4k monitor that has all of the features a Smart TV has, in a smaller form factor. From having apps, a web browser, and the ability to cast to it, to an ARC HDMI port for audio return, this has many terrific features you'd usually look for in a TV.

    Upon opening the box, the monitor comes with its mount, a power cable, a 10GB/s USB C cable, an HDMI cable, a media remote with batteries, and a setup manual. Located on the back of the monitor are 3 USB ports (one as a service port), 2 HDMI 2.0 ports (1 with ARC), and a 65W USB C port that can either be used to charge or connect devices to use the monitor as an extra display (like a mobile device or from your laptops Thunderbolt 3 connector).

    Other than the monitor's slim profile, one of the nicer things you notice is the gorgeous HDR10+, 60Hz, 250 nit brightness, VA panel 4k screen. Greatly specced, it comes with a long list of very useful features that made me fall in love with it. Equipped with Samsung's smooth Tizen OS, it has the capability to install popular streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and even productivity apps like Office 365. Without the need of a computer, you can connect a keyboard and mouse and start working on documents right from the monitor - a very cool feature. Adding on to the feature list, another great one for those with Samsung or Apple devices, is the ability to cast or mirror your phone's screen with Samsung's Smart View or Apple's Airplay 2. I was quite impressed Samsung added Apple TV and the newest AirPlay 2 functionality to the monitor and both worked well for me. Lastly, in my great features list was Samsung adding the ability to use their mobile desktop solution Dex, wirelessly. Connecting my Samsung phone to the monitor with a tap, I was able to view my phone's apps from the 32" screen and use my phone as a keyboard and mouse in Dex.

    While there are many things to love about this monitor, there are a few downsides to it. Although monitors usually face oneself, when at an angle, the Samsung AM702's colors on screen become very slightly washed and it loses its full color. At about 45 degrees you will notice the very slight difference. Also adding on to picture quality, there is a noticeable soap opera affect when watching shows with standard settings applied. The effect became much less noticeable after making picture adjustments in the settings though.

    Overall, this is an amazing monitor loaded with all the bells and whistles. With Smart TV-like features and added features like wireless Dex and Apple TV and AirPlay 2, this monitor is loaded with useful tools. I would recommend this to anyone looking to use this monitor not only as a display for a computer but also for those looking to get more out of a monitor and have the added ability to lay back and watch TV while off work.

    Monitor & TV streaming in one: duh! A Great Idea!

    This Samsung Samsung - AM702 Series 32” monitor has a detailed 4K picture in addition to TV streaming functions like Netflix and YouTube. We both have Samsung phones and with the Samsung app we are able to mirror our phones; it also has various connections with USB-C or HDMI. I have this in a very well lit windowed room; the anti-glare is great.

    We compared it to our wonderful 1080P 32” TV with the same cable TV feed and this Samsung AM702 is the clear winner in terms of picture clarity. We connected a Chromecast device and YouTube is clearer and more detailed than we have ever seen from our 32” 1080p TV.

    The 65w USB-C port is a wonderful feature to have in monitors at this price. It easily charges up both our phones and a 12 inch Samsung tablet with a huge battery fast. It also allows data and video connection for Windows 10 computers with that USB-C port onboard. The 65 W USB-C port is also a video input. That means the supplied USB-C cable will both charge your USB-C laptop and send the video to the monitor so anyone can use a single USB-C cable to connect a compatible laptop.

    The brightness is fine considering we have it facing 2 East side windows which get much light up until 11 AM. Not sure if everyone else has learned about the 4 picture modes which also produce a very bright picture if used. It is part of the settings menu.

    NO Alexa control, NO Google or Apple control which is surprising with all new devices having such control from microwaves, to toaster ovens as well as TVs today. Maybe Samsung will add it in an over the air WiFi update? The monitor has 3 GB of on board memory capacity of which barely 1.3 Gb is used on our monitor with some extra apps installed.

    We can’t try the DEX function since we do not own the specific Samsung phone models that are compatible.

    Get to the settings menu this way to adjust the brightness levels since it seems many of the reviews mention persoanl conflict with their monitors:

    Home, tab over to the extreme left of the app module until the gear symbol is selected and hit the center “enter” button on the remote. Go to System Manager, notice auto Sound ECO solutions, and Power saving Mode re brightness levels. Use the left right control to adjust the brightness!

    In the System Maintenance menu is also a function to delete apps and clean out the cache (same as on smartphones)

    There is also a menu for Yes or No on Auto Source Switching for the various inputs ports on this monitor

    I adjust the brightness level to about 35 out of 50 and noticed that they wattage usage dropped down to about 30-34 watts (I have a KilAWatt meter at home) from approx 54 watts of usage with the factory setting that was on full brightness. [There are some discussion online in general regarding turning down the brightness and backlight settings on LED TVs to greatly extend the life of the LEDs and to save on your electric bill.]

    Wish Samsung would put out a more detailed owner manual instead of a rudimentary visual set up flier and a brochure on their web site.

    I like it!

    Great smart display but not for gaming.

    First off, this thing is huge!

    Make sure your work surface is large enough to accommodate a monitor this size.

    The monitor is 28” wide and 20.5” tall when using the stand that comes in the box.

    The only adjustment the stand allows is tilt.

    The box was packaged tightly with some recyclable packaging and a Styrofoam shell to protect the screen. I do wish manufacturers would move away from Styrofoam...

    But the good news is that in the box, you will find everything needed to get started, including cables (power, HDMI, USB-C), remote and batteries.

    To assemble the stand, you’ll need a Phillips head screwdriver. Screw the riser into the base, then attach the stand to the back of the monitor with 2 screws, plug it into power, plug into your PC/Mac and follow the prompts.

    I was up and running within 10 minutes.

    Once you’ve gone through the login into your Samsung account (or you can create a free account), you can start customizing your smart monitor.

    First impressions:

    You get a large desktop in which you can easily fit multiple windows side by side.

    The text and definition worked well for a work monitor.

    The 60Hz refresh rate proved to be inadequate for any HD gaming, so this is definitely NOT aimed to that market.

    Watching videos was adequate except for high action parts, where you might see some pixelation.

    I think that where this smart display works best is when you use the smart features.

    So you get a large screen to work on documents, that can double as a TV.

    The remote included worked well and has a layout that is intuitive.

    Once you have logged into your streaming services, you can switch back and forth from desktop monitor to TV.

    As a combination monitor/smart display, you have a good amount of available ports to connect many devices and game consoles. You get 2 HDMI, 1 USB-C and 2 other USB ports.

    The speakers work well as expected but I wouldn’t use them above 60% or so. I would recommend a soundbar or headphones for any extended use.

    Another cool thing is that you can use Airplay to wirelessly connect your mobile phone/tablet and use it as an external display to share your pictures, videos and whatever else you desire.

    Overall, I am pleased with the quality of build, the amount of usable screen and the smart features.

Adds a lot of brightness and an amazing monitor I love it in full 4k and all the workspace I have. I almost returned it because it was too dark until I found the GAME MODE setting.

    I'm satisfied, not bad for the price.

    Exactly what I was wanting. I have two 34" ultra-wide monitors that work fine but with those you actually are giving up workspace and the aspect ratio is 21:9 which actually becomes a waste because most things like YouTube and other media apps don't seem to scale. The Samsung 43" M7 has plenty of screen to fit a massive amount of open windows. The Apps built in are really a bonus for me, not the reason I bought it but maybe all monitors should have all these features. The picture quality is better than I expected considering the price, blacks are actually black not grey as far as I can tell. I wish it had another 100 nits of brightness but for the price it's fine.

    Good Monitor at a Good Price

    I purchased this monitor in order for my development team to investigate and test a customer issue related to high resolution monitors. The monitor worked well for this purpose at a competitive price point and was exactly as described on the web site. It also arrived ahead of the tentative delivery date which was a bonus.

    Not as spected

    Just 60 Hz and it doesn’t have too much sharpness but price/performance is one of the best at the time of my purchase

    Great but makes noise on startup

    The monitor doesn't have great color starting out but can be managed through the setting in the monitor menu. It's a little difficult to navigate the menus as there is only one button to navigate the menu. It's a joystick style button on the back of the monitor. Overall the image is great and once setup it runs well other than a high pitched girly quiet noise that comes from it when it first "wakes up" or starts up after being powered down.

    2.1 hdmi is turned off by default in the settings of the monitor. Press the back right button behind the monitor once for quick settings and once again for full settings. It will be listed under the bottom tab on the list. This is my settings for the Xbox One Series X. You’re Welcome!

    Dead pixel in the first week

    Looks good on PS5 but you have to upgrade the firmware for it to work correctly. Biggest issue was that there is a dead pixel within four days of owning this. Now i have to order another one to exchange it. Not what in expecting for $900.

    There are some serious issues when connecting to a source. The screen will at times go black and will not let me bring up the menu. I highly suggest to avoid this monitor

    Biggest let down

    I had a defective unit. The monitor stopped working after 24hrs. While it was working it never let me play my ps5 at 4k 120hz. You have to go into the settings and turn on HDMI 2.1 and HDR which is ridiculous. Even after that and checking my ps5 settings it never worked.

    At 4K the image is very good. At lower resolutions the image starts to get less sharp.

    The stand is not adjustable. You can tilt the monitor back and forth but not move it up and down. I returned the monitor for that reason and went with the Dell 27",

    This was returned at the time of pick-up as it wasn't what your web site said it was. According to your web site under specifications the monitor had a web cam installed when in fact the unit doesn't have a camera. Can't really blame the item as I do have one of these from an earlier purchase but can put blame on incorrect info provided by Best Buy web site.

    I know you won't publish this but at least you will know as I told the store manager correct information needs to be on the web site
