    48-144hz refresh rate with LFC (low frame rate compensation)
    HDR 600 support
    Samsung Quantum dot (colors just pop) even at 31% brightness it looks great!
    Games with HDR look pretty impressive like far cry 5.
    Eye care mode to reduce night light.

    Stand is top notch with tilt and height adjustments. Didn’t know how much I would appreciate it until I finally had it lol.

    Text is sharp. I had pixio monitor that I returned and it wasn’t nearly as sharp as this one. I am really impressed with this monitor.

    The blacks are noticeably better looking on the display I just got. Like you said earlier, it's a good thing this happened, otherwise you wouldn't have found a much better monitor!

    edit: somebody said that, anyways lol

    Yea man. I have the samsung display at 31% brightness and set it according to tft central. I sware this thing even pops at 31% brigthness lol. Quantum dot thing is no joke. Its really much better on the eyes and I don't even have to turn on night light mode or eye care mode. I feel like this samsung is worth every penny. Works great and don't have to deal with wide screen format issue also don't have to change DPI because of 4k display. I think I am sticking to 1440p 144hz screen for now.

    Mine seems pretty dang bright too. Dropped brightness from 90 to 65. Havent' calibrated it yet. I don't know which samsung panel mine uses. I don't think its the quantum dot, but it still looks fantastic. It's a good feeling when a computer part exceeds expectiations.

    I just ordered 27" version, I think you have the 32" version. Anyways great seeing a [H]ardOCP user critiquing the monitor. Makes my decision much easier. Thanks

    yea I didn't want to go too low. Update your firmware when you get it. Samsung's site is stupid when I tried to update the 32 inch, the 32inch page had file for 27inch version lol! Someone messed something up. Good thing I research, so I found a link and someone found the 32 inch latest firmware on their korean page lol. Flashed that and it was set, however I do think they mostly fixed everything with the firmware before and I may not have needed to update. I didn't test the range out of box and I think I had the firmware one before the latest one which should have been fine but I am a sucker for having the latest thing. Haha. But everytime I look at this monitor its frickin amazing its set to 31% brightness I am always checking. Must be the quantum dot thing.

    I know this is an old thread, but I've had the same problem with my monoprice monitor since I bought it in the summer. Their support is pretty useless imo. They just offer to replace it as soon as you complain, but neglect to admit the fact that this happens on of these monitors. I'm tempted to send it back to see if a new batch of monitors has the freesync issue resolved, but I'm hoping they will just offer me a refund. At this point I'd rather just spend the money on a more expensive monitor that works.

    I have yet to see one post from a single user that says their freesync works fine. The only time I don't get flickering is if I keep my settings low enough to keep the fps over 100.

    Absolutely unacceptable that they just keep selling these monitors as freesync monitors when it's clearly broken.
