when i first recieved it it had uniformity issues light is not even on all screen in black scenes plus awakward color shift on the lowerside of the monitor in bright scenes it has light bleed on two lower corners lower left being worse, has horrible freecync range from 48 to 75 in the ultimate configurations my old 27 inch 1080P ips dell seemed better.
reducing the brightness to 25 and changing gamma to mode 2 fixed the monitor for me the glow is really reduced colors are better,
but still on a white back ground seems like half the screen has a yellow tent, and i had two both of them looked the same, it may be the quantom dot uniformity issues and it also has lower monitor back light bleed which is blue due to quantum don has blue back lighting.
-update 13/11/2017 freecync is fixed everything works great and smooth no more video choppyness in browsers and it is amazingly good for games makes everything smooth and helps with heavy graphics and prolongs the useage of videos cards i think due to its ability to better use them. it has one weakpoint it seems it wont work below 48hz unlike monitors with freecync 2 though i am not 100% sure about this.
-the monitor completley disconnects when on idle so it has issues reconnecting when using dual monitors this isnt a first for a samsung monitor i tried, continued link fauilers it keeps failing to detect the monitor once it goes to sleep or if you connect to another monitor via displayport, it seems it has issues with displayport or that samsung is using a peice of junk cable i used another one it didnt fix it either, the problem is there is only one mini dp to dp on the planet that is certified and its very expesive, connecting to hdmi directly to my video card seems to have fixed it for now. so dont use display port i have tested on 3 computers with 3 different cables the problem is the same.
and the funny part is that this monitor is a european model, they threw a uk plug inside but didnt bother checking that there is no way to plug it ito the monitor so you will need an adapter, iv seen people on youtube with the same issue, it also comes with a wart adapter which isnt great.
- now this is not a british model so i cant contact samsung uk i have to go thru samsung germany and they answer only in german.
samsung has had a ton of issues with this monitor since the anounced it in CES 2017
- i returned it, and recieved a brand new one, same problems, i even asked in amazon USA and i recieved one user response who seems to have the same problem icons shrink i.e. link faliure, samsung has a history with this issue the 750D i had to two years they didnt bother fixing, and a quick online search will indicate that many manufacteres may suffer from the same problems.
- in short this has great image color as in colors pop you might say, but not much different than a good midrange samsung TV with no quantum dot which i have and can compare to, and when i bought it it was the only VA 1440P on the market so if you only intend on using HDMI it will be good enough, i will always favor a VA over the IPS with the IPS horrible glow
