gaming monitor with 60hz lul
A TN panel, for $380? Are you shittin' me? Well, least it's US-only.
This monitor is garbage at this price.
60hz is terrible Contrast is terrible 300 Nits is terrible
I could keep going, but that should be enough.

That's definitely a valid point, but not many 1440p with free sync that have even a decent enough brightness. I want at least 800-900+ nits for a decent HDR experience.
Added bonus to waiting is that prices will drop on these for sure. Monitors are getting more and more popular.
Yep...I'm not in a rush - just saw the massdrop listed and came to take a look. I'm not a gamer, so 60hz is fine for me. But I spend enough time in front of a screen, including a lot of graphics (in support of business and IT consulting) and photo editing, so color rendition, gamut, accuracy and resolution are all important to me. Currently using a Dell P2715Q as an external monitor with my primary laptop (XPS 15 9560 -- also 4K/UHD, wide gamut). The P2715Q is already a 3 year old design, but has been excellent in its space (if too slow for high intensity gaming, and not HDR). If anything, I might pick up a second one of these (Dell dropping the price, and potential for a used one in good condition) to have a matched pair. But I like to see what's coming, even if not an immediate / early adopter.
Does this support HDR? My main use will be for the Xbox One X
SidAsrani
No. I have an Xbox one X and am in the market for a monitor, however HDR is fairly new to monitors. Most monitors don't produce enough nits to give you true HDR. Acceptable is considered anywhere from 600+, 900+ would be ideal. This is 300, so wahwahwaaaaaah. Wait until later this year or even early next year. You're going to see 4k, HDR, with free sync/g sync.

Thanks for the heads up! Any suggestion for a display unit for a small space? Looking at a 32" max to use with my One X. Even a television would do
Thinking about buying this for Photo/Video Editing and some gaming (nothing serious, just for fun). Apparently the colors and brightness is great, and it's only 60Hz which I'm okay with. Any advice?
looooong
I suppose that's what this monitor is made for. If you aren't going to play any FPS games or similar, requiring 144hz, then this would probably be a decent choice - although i think there might be better options price-wise out there with the same specs.
Can the refresh rate be higher at lower resolution?
hbomb
I don't think that's how it works... the panel still needs to refresh all the pixels even if the source image resolution isn't maximum. There have been cases of panels capable of higher refresh rates, like 75Hz while advertised as 60Hz, but that's typically considered "overclocking" the monitor. I've never seen something as drastic as 100Hz from a 60 or anything like that though, so don't expect much. I think your biggest limitation is the controller board's refresh clock, not the incoming signal.
hbomb
I remember being able to do that on my 22" Sony Trinitron CRT Monitor. I would run it at lower resolution, higher refresh rate for gaming and then crank up the resolution when working. LOL, good old days.
I want buy this monitor, but shipping, no international, I am not gonna use comgateway or something different. Maybe next time they are change shipping rules and maybe, maybe next time they are sell some more monitors
can It make noise by it self?
Port_ceiling2596
Do you mean, are there speakers or does the monitor make noise?
Why are there no international shipments anymore? T_T
good for console gaming? too bad its only 300nits need at least 500 for decent HDR
deltron310
500 is weak still. 600+, but I'm waiting until later this year/early next year to get something 800+ nits, 4k, hdr, with free sync
Can this thing run at 120hz if you set the resolution to 1080p/1440p?
max3000
No, I don't think any monitor will be able to overclock that high. The panel itself still needs to refresh and has a built in hardware clock that it refreshes against. The best you could hope for is getting maybe 75Hz out of this display, just maybe.
60hz TN? LOL seriously? What is this? 2005?

The person that originally replied to my comment mentioned 4k 144hz which should be considered a gaming monitor at this point so I recommended to go with a different option. Nobody is comparing this to a gaming monitor. On a side note this monitor is pointless. I can't think of any meaningful application for this panel unless you're really desperate for a cheap 4k monitor but even than TN kinda negates the whole advantage of a high resolution due to shitty viewing angles and bad colors.
AlexaBlack
Exactly.
Came here to say that this monitor sucks...unless the only thing you care about is colors and brightness and having your face plastered in the same position for the entirety of its use. This was for $300 on black friday and I did the research and bit my lip and bought it to test the "QLED trumps TN" claims. It was never clear to me what people were talking about. Turns out TN is TN (not IPS aka atrocious viewing angles) and QLED is a coin termed by samsung to pretty much market these monitors. All QLED means is a higher color gamut (about 99%) and a brighter backlight at least (300cmd). There are other brands out there that do IPS with a higher color gamut and higher brightness which are better monitors. Don't let Samsung fool you like they fooled a lot of people by rebranding "Refresh rate 60hz" to "120 motion rate" to make you think it was 120hz for TVs a couple years ago, something they still do fyi.

Oh and to answer your first question, yes it is but some trolls (or idiots) make the statement that "the Qled tech makes the screen brighter which improves viewing angles"...it does not.
Razor330
damn well that is a sorry TN panel then, surprised to see samsung put out that quality.
How does this compare to ips or other high quality types?
elau
It doesn't.
not sure if anyone noticed but there's a deal that is a little cheaper at buydig with a coupon code
Why does it say QLED but its TN? it can not be both.

Thank you for clarifying this. It was very confusing
uefcommand
It actually can be both...
TLDR: Definitely not good for photo editing, might work for movies and gaming (only 60hz) if you're the only one watching and viewing on dead center.
Qled just refers to the brightness of the led, it's a term coined by Samsung and doesn't mean anything (doesn't effect viewing angle) except brighter leds which allows brighter brights and better contrast & colors cause it can individually adjust the brightness of each pixel....TN refers to how the pixels are laid out...I wont go into too much detail, but the viewing angles suck on this thing...only good if you will be viewing it dead center on...the horizontal isn't so bad in terms of color shift but the vertical is atrocious that if you're not level with the center of the monitor it looks really bad (I noticed darkening of the colors just an inch up or down)...but if you are in the 1% perfect zone then it's the best color/brightness/clarity ive ever seen in a monitor...not worth it if you're a heckler for viewing angles Though, I returned mine I got for $300 because it wasn't worth it for a non IPS display.
Why does it say QLED in the title, but TN in the description? What?!
skugga87
Look at my post above, but it's cause its both...you're comparing apples and oranges. TN=shitty ciewing angles QLED= samsunha way of saying "fricken sweet color depth & brightness" 4K=uhd fricken sweet clairity imo you're better off getting a 4k IPS with a 99% color gamut (standard is 72% Qled I believe is 99-125%ish) and 300cmd brightness or more, it will give you the color that Qled boasts and you get flawless viewing angles.
Can someone tell me if this model could work in France. I'm not sure if its coming with the right cable power or not, or if its only cable type for U.S.
Where would it say if it ships internationally and how to calculate costs?
60hrz ...... sad face

Name me one 4K monitor that is above 60hz and name me one graphics card that can drive that.
UglyTomato
Acer ET322QK is 75hz with Freesync. To answer the second question any card because that's the beauty of graphics settings.
I got excited about this monitor initially until I did a search. I found that this monitor's HDMI port doesn't have HDCP 2.2 compliance so the user is not able to stream 4K shows on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime.
Now granted this won't be an issue if you're strictly using this monitor for computer/graphics work. But, if you intend to plug in a Roku or an Amazon FireTV to it, you won't be able to stream the protected 4K content on this monitor.
Mehdi
This monitor isn't really for watching movies. It might be good at it, but you are looking at a 28" display. TVs can be cheaper, and way bigger in size at this price, if gaming and working on a computer isn't your primary need, a TV is definitely the better option. There is rarely a perfect product that fits all your needs in the middle of the price curve.
man, half this fucking shit doesn't ship outside U.S
Wait... TN panel?
SRTChrisS1
pretty sure its actually quantum dot lol, i mean it says QLED in the pic
SRTChrisS1
Yea I bought it thinking the QLEDs "brightness" would make up for it because everyone boasted it would...it DID NOT! I returned it in a heartbeat. If viewing angles matters to you pass on this one.
Man, why the fuck does this have to be Freesync?
Jgreening89
Because if it was gsync it would cost a grand
Jgreening89
Because AMD is better
Are the HDMI ports 2.0?
AgentMax
Yes
Hi, is there any way(economically speaking) that I can get this product to Singapore?
leenut
(Singaporean here) maybe, but once you factor in the shipping, the import GST and the long wait time, it might be more worth it to pick something up at one of the IT shows that happen throughout the year. not to mention using a third party shipping provider will incur even more costs
