Just as an FYI for those curious: it’s a max 60Hz refresh rate at 4k resolution via the Display Port (v1.2 or greater) connection, and 30Hz via the HDMI (v1.4 or greater)

Surprised this isn’t in the specs section!

Comments from a previous sale

No Vesa mount? Geez is Samsung loosing it?

Perhaps they are ‘tighting’ it.

Yeah, the Vizio 50" 4K TV that woot was selling a few weeks back has a 60 Hz 4K HDMI input. Boy that makes a real nice computer display - 50" of hi-rez real estate. I tried to advise people of this absolute steal, but had some self-appointed expert insinuate that I was delusional. A pox on his head.

If you were trying to sell a monitor with these specs would you want to highlight or even list them?

I’ve used one and this is a nice monitor. The 60hz refresh on DP is 60hz- what more do you want? The 30hz via hdmi is an hdmi 1.4 limitation and not like Samsung is doing anything wrong, per se. Yes it would have been nice if they had given it hdmi v2.0, but they didn’t. This is the same issue on a lot of the first and second gen 4k TVs. It’s only really the past 6-12 months that 4k TVs have gotten hdmi 2.0 and therefore 4k at 60hz over hdmi.

This is also a moot point if your graphics card doesn’t support hdmi 2.0, because then it’s equally responsible. But if you have a graphics card that does have hdmi 2.0 then you’re extremely likely to also have a displayport or a port that can be converted to displayport, so… it’s a red herring.

So don’t buy this for gaming over hdmi. For everything else, it’s a great 4k monitor from a highly reputable company. You are very likely to not be able to tell or notice the 30hz when you’re using the monitor for anything other than fast moving games. Definitely not for web surfing, productivity apps, and normal business use.

Of course the ones we bought were new. I can’t speak to the refurbished ones.

Luckily HDMI 2.0 isn’t needed for 4K resolutions anyway, HDMI 1.4 provides more than enough resolution (3,840x2,160) capability to support 4K. The only advantage HDMI 2.0 provides is higher frame rates which, unless the monitor supports, is pointless anyway.

I’d buy three of these monitors if it had VESA mounting. I don’t have room on my desk for stands, so I have my current, now outdated, Dell Ultrasharps all wall mounted. Can’t believe a computer monitor doesn’t support standard VESA mounting.

My exact thought. Checked the pic. Checked the specs. Came here to comment the same thing. (currently have my “famous maker” 27" QHD on an arm)

Holy cow! The buyer must be suffering from home-bound ice sickness. He’s done gone and lowered that price! Doesn’t he know the ice melted 2 days ago!

Off to hunt him down before he does something else rash.

Oh, and if you bought, that money will fly back into your pockets soonish.

What does tighting mean? Never heard that word before.

This is just my experience using 4k on a 32inch monitor and windows 8.1. Windows does a bad job scaling high DPI monitors and I would not recommend going smaller than 32 inches. Oh, and I prefer IPS but you will pay out the nose.

4K at 60Hz?? That’s definitely worth the price then. Dell’s $400 4K monitor is 30Hz and it’s painful to use.

It was meant to be a joke… they were responding to someone who said “loosing” (the action of loosening something maybe?), when they actually meant to type “losing”. Therefore, the “tighting” was in response to “loosing”.

When I was in elementary school, they taught us the difference between loose and lose was to think along the lines of a belt… when you loosen a belt you’re making more room for another o. Therefore, loose - two o’s - is the opposite of tight.

4k on a 28" screen lawls.
