I too own a Wasabi Mango monitor, in my case it is a UHD430 also bought from AccessoriesWhole on eBay. Purchased it in February and it arrived just as everyone else described in two business days. I did not order the PixelPerfect version but upon inspection I have 0 stuck amd 0 dead pixels. Mine arrived via DHL.

The legs on the UHD430 match all the other 40"-43" monitors Wasabi Mango sells and mount in exactly the same fashion. I am using the supplied DP cable.

There is a recent firmware upgrade dated 0415 from April 2016. There is almost no changelog but it mentions briefly that it fixes compatibility issues. The firmware works on multiple versions of this monitor.

Without a colorimeter it would be very difficult to assess the color accuracy of this monitor, if you are doing it by sight or are using the built-in OS utility for calibrating the monitor you will only have an approximation of the correct color, completely based on visual preference and not real world measurements. This is not to say that correcting color visually is wrong, but rather it will bias the monitor in a direction that really only works for the individual that does the calibration. Fortunately I have a ColorMunki Display and can calibrate based on colorspace. Using DisplayCal 3.1.3 I needed to make the following adjustments in the setup menu:

Picture menu
Brightness 81
Contrast 74
Saturation 52
Gamma 2.2
DCR Off
Color Menu
Color Temperature User
Red 91
Green 98
Blue 100
Misc Menu
FreeSync On​

After setting the monitor menu you can begin profiling the display. Using DisplayCal the results of profiling the monitor were a deltas of 1.55% red gamma, 1.69% green gamma, .98% blue gamma. After profiling the images displayed look fantastic. Compared to a similar PC my daughter has set up with an HP Z30 1440p monitor (uncalibrated) at the default settings and it looks horrible compared to the Wasabi Mango. I'm sure hers will look much better after calibration. My previous setup was with color corrected dual monitors, Dell 2407 and Dell 2408. I did not have the Dells and Wasabi Mango set up simultaneously so I cannot give an informed opinion about color matching. Finally, going through the ClearType selection to sharpen the fonts and to correct for the BGR pixel layout is all that was needed for complete setup. AMD drivers automatically detect this panel as 10-bit 3840x2160 60Hz.

I can say that one of the reasons for upgrading was that the back-light on the 2407 was getting weak and subsequently creating an in-correctable color shift. Plus the desktop space for the CAD work and photo editing and limited gaming is perfect now without two rather large bezels down the middle. I have played a few games such as Fallout 4 and HalfLife 2 @2160x1440 and the monitor looks perfect with non fatiquing visuals. I am not a twitch game player so I have not done any of the more common lag tests. Sitting approximately 30" from the monitor and with 100% Windows screen scaling everything is easy to read without squinting.

My experience with AccessoriesWhole so far is that they deliver a good product described accurately in their eBay listings, with no missing parts. I am trying to convince my daughter that she need to look at these monitors also and AccessoriesWhole as a source.

I just purchased a Wasabi Mango UHD400 on Ebay. I have a couple of questions and I would appreciate any help anybody could give me on these topics.

1. Do this monitor use PWM and if so is there a way to minimize its effects?

2. Can someone please post their recommended settings for Brightness, Contrast etc. It would really help a newbie such as myself thanks.

Just ordered a UHD400 and had few questions:
  • Did you pay any import/custom fees since it came from Korea
  • What is the size of the monitor without the stand. More interested in the height
  • Anyone using an adjustable desk stand they can recommend.

Paid no import fees. Monitor measures 21" in height, 36" in width without stand.

Disregard previous issue, reinstalling video drivers corrected flicker issue.

This monitor is a beast. I picked one up to replace my U3014 which kicked the bucket last week. Completely dwarfs my NEC 27" EA274wmi (left) and U2412M (right)

Very happy so far with this monitor, has improved my day to day in work (work from home) and play (have only played Overwatch on it, but it's amazing)

Meant to say BGR not RBG, corrected thanks. This LG panel does not lay out the pixels in normal RGB patterns. UHD430 only. Don't know about the UHD400.

I received my monitor over the weekend and have been using it for past few days. Here is my impression so far:

- This thing is huge. I had prepared myself for a big monitor based on everything I had heard but this thing is massive sitting about 24" away.
- it has an overwhelming blue hue to it. For example when I have chrome on and looking at yahoo, the empty parts of the page are almos blue instead of being white compared to my old monitor.
- I was able to get 60hz at 4K, 4:4:4 without any issues.
- I don't see any lag in playing games. I played fallout 4 about few hours.
- it's definitely not flicker free
- While slow motion 4K video plays awesome, any video with fast action is juddery and has a lot of grainy parts to it. It's not designed to be used as a TV to watch fast action 4K video. I am not sure how much this has to do with the card I am using since it's an older GTX 670.
- Overall I am ok with it. Had I see the judder and quality of the fast action 4K videos, I would not have purchased it.

  1. Yes it is big. I sit about 3 feet away (< 1m) and a 43" fills my field of vision.
  2. Go through the Windows OS color calibration if you don't have a colorimeter, it will bring the blue under control. In Windows 10 it is under Advanced Display Settings >> Color Calibration

  3. No lag for me either
  4. Is this the UHD400? Is it advertised as Flicker-Free?
  5. I have no issues with 4K video from any source (don't forget that Youtube compresses all video and the compression artifacts could be causing some judder, also you are several generations behind with that GTX 670, I have not seen this on either a GTX 760 or R9 390.
  6. Try downloading an actual 4K (uncompressed) video clip and see if the issue persists. I thought that the panels and scaler boards used by Wasabi Mango (and others) were fast enough that this should not be an issue. By downloading you also eliminate any possible network issues.
If you are having issues contact the seller (Blue LED I assume is you monitor's Power Indicator?)

I actually just purchased this monitor recently myself in part thanks to the helpful suggestions on this forum, so I thought I would chip in a bit. In regards to your main issue, I haven't experienced any sort of judder at all at 4k with fast scenes either via downloaded Blu-ray films or streaming Youtube videos. For reference, I am running a GTX 1080. Also, in regards to the blue issue, that was the first thing I noticed as well, but it was also something I was expecting based on the posts I've read about this monitor. Upon testing the color settings suggested by LanPirate1 above, the colors are now much much better, with the whites actually being white. This isn't really a monitor that you can just plug in and go, you've gotta tweak the settings some first, but upon doing that it is absolutely beautiful.

To conclude, I just wanted to say to anyone considering the monitor, just give it a try. If you're anything like me, you won't be disappointed.

As I was sitting here gaming away in 4k glory, my Mango emitted a *POP* and the screen went black. Will not power back on either. Doesn't smell like anything burnt out either. Has anyone else had one of these displays go kaput on them?

I'm starting to get bad flickering


But getting assistance from greensum who I ordred from via Ebay is like pulling teeth. I've initiated a return, pretty bummed out because if it wasn't for the flicker, this monitor would be perfect for me

I ordered from them also, and have already had issues with communication. Let us know how the return goes.

In all my research I have not seen or heard of this yet.

Next up was trying to load some 4k content from Youtube. Picture looked great, but suffered from stuttering. I have a 150Mb/sec connection which should be plenty to stream in 4k.
As someone who lived in Korea for a great many years, it 150Mb/sec doesn't mean a whole lot if the content isn't hosted locally. Maybe it's changed, but when I left in 2013, I wasn't even able to stream Netflix properly with a similarly fast connection.

I ordered my UHD400 last Sunday night EST from Accessorieswhole. It arrived Thursday afternoon(I'm in Ontario, Canada). There was a perfect pixel version, which I ordered. The price was $637 plus $60 to ship. I) also bought a squaretrade warranty, for another $89 (3 year). The monitor arrived by fedex. It was completely wrapped in bubble wrap, with fragile stickers all over. The wrapping was intact, no damage to the box inside. I'm pleased to report the monitor was unboxed without incident, everything was accounted for and in perfect shape.

I found the legs, and screwed them on. Three small phillips screws per leg. The 400mm vesa holes on the back are already filled with 4 silver screws. I left them in. Sitting on the table, first impressions and walk around: Build quality is excellent. The bezels are metal, and have a slight bevel, like professional mat cutting used in framing pictures. Nice touch.
The top and side bezels are black aluminum(1/2"thick), and the bottom is silver(3/4" thick). The buttons are underneath each symbol and have a positive click sound when pressed. Only light on is the power led, which goes from red on standby to blue when on. It is bright, so I may darken it somehow later.

The screen is not fully glossy, not a glass screen cover at all. It has some glare though. As I type this out, I turned a ceiling light on overhead, and I do not see any reflections of anything on my desk, or of the light. Thats a good enough test for me.

The connections are all laid out along the right side of the board on the back. 4 HDMI (2- 2.0 and 2- 1.4). There is a DP input, ver. 1.2. Also, a DB 15 VGA port, and a USB service port. There is also an audio in/out with 1/8" jacks, as there are speakers, which I have not tested as yet. The power input is located on the left side of the board, and is the standard 3 prong computer power socket.
The UHD400 arrived with the latest firmware wich supports freesync, and was in the english language. It came shipped with a North America power cord, an hdmi cable, a display port cable, the all korean users manual, and a remote which is nice but again, all in Korean. First thing I did was plug in the hdmi cable.
With my Radeon HD7970, all I could get was 30Hz, so there was some obvious ghosting, and I was quickly dissapointed. I wanted to use the included DP cable, but my VC has mini DP out. I had to buy a mini to standard DP cable, another $15 at my local store. Once plugged in everything was great, full 60Hz.

The first thing I recommend you do is go to Youtube and search for 4K videos. Wow, I was blown away. It's an immediate reassurance that you did the right thing. Okay, now on to the testing.

First off, I noticed that this monitor had too much blue push, everything seemed blueish, even whites. After adjusting some settings, I settled on:
Brightness: 75 Contrast: 85 Saturation: 75 Hue: 50
In the color menu, Color temp: USER Red: 95 Green: 75 Blue: 70. I don't think I'm finished, but I'm happier with it now than the first few hours.
This is better than it shipped, 6500K, with red, green, and blue at 100.
I have one of my Dell 2407WFP monitors to the left, in protrait. I know it's a "VA" type panel as well, but I can't get the colours to fully match the UHD400. I have two other 2407's and tried those as well, same thing. I think it's a combination of looking at the Dell in portrait, and its a way older panel technology.

Tried filming the screen at 75 brightness, the camera picks up some wavering, which I guess is PWM flicker? I don't know, but I know this: I can't pick up any flicker with my own eyes, and neither have 4 other people looking at it. I don't see any pixel-walk on any square in this test: Inversion (pixel-walk) - Lagom LCD test. Sub pixel layout is RGB, and there is no banding at all.
Color depth is true 24bit, and the chroma sub is 4:4:4 for sure, as the last two lines of the quick brown fox are totally clear.
The black levels are really dark, I can see all black squares on the lcd test page. I mean inky black. The whites are very pure as well. Videos with a night scene with street lighting, or fireworks are detailed very well, with no bleed. On that subject, there is no panel glow at all here.
Zero dead/stuck pixels as well. So far, no burn-in, or ghosting. I left windows open on a black, then grey background, zero burn in but I'll watch for it. The bottom of the monitor gets warm, around the lower bezel and the lower few inches of the screen. Is that where the power supply is located? Not sure.

Gaming: Yes, I've spent around 10 hours playing some older titles, and some newer games also. Older games like UT3, Bioshock Infinite are buttery smooth. No issues at all.
Star wars battlefront is slower, barely playable. Fallout 4 is too slow as well, maxing out at 25 fps on my old 7970 at full res. I was surprised by the 7970 though.
Scaling is excellent, I was able to play Battlefront and Fallout 4 at 2560x1440 and it looked great. I'll be looking to spend some money on a VC later in the summer when we know more about the different models from AMD and Nvidia.

To sum up., the whole experience has been very positive. I was worried about the 40" size being to big. I sit 20-24" back from the screen here and I do not have to pan around too much at all. 6 hours of straight gaming, no eyestrain either.
I'm glad I was able to be one of the guinea pigs this time. In the past I always waited to see how it went with others and ordered based on their experiences.

Thank you so much for posting the setting for Brightness, Contrast, Saturation and Hue. Also setting for Colors as well. I was not happy the manufacture setting as you mentioned. I almost buying a new one from Sony but you have save me. I've been looking to see if anyone have some new setting on colors and finally you did it and I am a happy camper!!

Does anyone have dimensions of the legs? Wondering how far the monitor would sit if I had the legs all the way against the rear edge of my desk.

I'm assuming you're using HDMI, since you are using a GTX 670 you are limited to 4k @ 30hz, that may be why video seems so stuttery. You need a card that supports HDMI 2.0... So a 9 or 10 series Nvidia based card (No idea on an AMD card).

If you're using DisplayPort then ignore what I said. :)

From the exact same post you quoted, a whopping three lines above...

"I was able to get 60hz at 4K, 4:4:4 without any issues."

He doesn't need a card that supports HDMI 2.0 if he's running over DP, which it sounds like he is.

I was just trying to help which I realize in this day and age might come as some sort of a surprise to someone such as yourself. Regardless, I've made a big 'whopping' edit to my response to clear up any confusion.

Thanks for calling me out on it.

Interestingly today, I updated to the latest Nvidia driver and I no longer have the 4K, 60hz, 4:4:4 option. My only option is 4K 30hz, BGR. I was able to creat a custom profile for 4K @ 60hz but I still can't get 4:4:4. Not sure why this is happening since I was able to get 4k@60hz, 4:4:4 prior to the driver update.

I am thinking about reverting back to the older driver if I can't find any other solution. Any thoughts.

Just got mine. Easy to setup. Arrived with English as the default language. I bought it from Green-Sum.

I paid extra for the pixel perfect version. And it came just like that. No dead pixels at all, anywhere. Initial colors had to be adjusted, but it is nice now. I do not know how to read the remote. So it would be nice if someone could attach a picture and let us know what the buttons on the remote do.

Lag...? None that I can tell at all. Using a 1070. I have been playing games for a few hours with no noticeable lag at all. Over all extremely please with the build quality and the size of this monitor.

Green Sum agreed to pay for the return shipping on my defective model. I ordered another but this time a pixel perfect version so that I could be sure someone at least tested it a bit before shipping. Mine started having odd screen flashing issues. They were supposed to get back to me in a day or two concerning the issue, but a week later and no response, I started posting a ton of videos on youtube about the issue to show them exactly what was happening and they finally responded with a return label and an apology. They seem like good sellers, just got a faulty monitor i guess. The new one so far is working great. Hopefully no issues!

Ray21, any updates on your issue? I'm looking to get a 1080

That's awesome man thanks for the info.

Can't say enough awesome stuff about this monitor so far.

So I finally got around to color calibrating and setting this up. Came from an HP 27" 1440p IPS with excellent color.

The Goods:
- LARGE, 4k
- Has good color reproduction for the most part. Settings below using an i1 Display Pro.
- Lots of manual controls to adjust settings.


The Bads:
- I'm getting a weird noise band that travels top to bottom, barely noticeable, but I see it when doing graphic work and a full color is applied to the screen. I can see it right now in this post. Turning on freesync helped out a little I think. Not sure if it's a GFX card issue (Radeon 290) or monitor issue.
- If you sit too close, you get a "tunnel" color effect. This won't be noticeable to most who just use it for gaming, but for graphics work, it's not good. I have to shift my head to shift the color cone. For an example, it looks like you applied a slight radial gradient in photoshop.
- It gets HOT, like uncomfortably hot. If I put the back of my finger against the logo, I have to remove it within 4 seconds before serious pain kicks in. I'm going to check it with a thermometer.
- The legs are flimsy, I had to use washers to get the screws tightened.


I'll have to research the banding effect and see if it's just my card. The other color issue might be fixable if I can find a mount for this thing. I have a wall directly behind it, but the mount I bought was too flimsy for it. Anyone have any suggestions? I see some have theirs mounted.



Color Settings:
X-Rite Display Profiler, i1 Display Pro
Whitepoint: D65
Luminance: 120 cd/m^2

For what it's worth I have experienced not color banding. I am using a 1070

- I'm getting a weird noise band that travels top to bottom, barely noticeable, but I see it when doing graphic work and a full color is applied to the screen. I can see it right now in this post. Turning on freesync helped out a little I think. Not sure if it's a GFX card issue (Radeon 290) or monitor issue.


I thought I would weigh in here as I just received the monitor and also have noticed bands that travel top to bottom. If I crank the brightness to max I cannot seem them anymore. See if that helps.

The potential problem of inputlag does not bother you? I recall 50ms timed against CRT from the other thread at Teksyndicate.
I'm not sure that test by Jann is indicative of all of these monitors. There were 2 or 3 of us in this thread who posted lag screenshots around the 30ms range. There are many people in this thread which have also posted that they perceive no lag when playing games (myself included).

Granted that some people are more susceptible to the lag than others, but I think that many times we just look at lag tests without really looking to see if it bothers us in the real world.

My UHD400 feels much worse than my EF9500, which is supposedly ~50ms. Not bothered in games so much, it's just the cursor in Windows that's starting to bug me. Moving from dual U3415W at work to the UHD400 at home is pretty gross.

I have to say that Jann's test were very convincing to me because they were clocked against a real CRT monitor. (the golden standard).

If you don't mind me asking, where did you see the 30ms?

We posted screencaps in post# 69, 74, and 78 in this thread. In terms of the picture I posted, I fully disclose though that I only had my cell phone camera handy. The comparison monitor in my snapshot is an Achieva Shimian 1440p monitor without a scalar board (DVI-D input only).

Might give it a go, also might check the firmware. There's a May 6 release for this model on the Korean site.

My initial run with the i1 Display Pro and ADC turned on jacked the brightness to 100, but I redid it manually at a lower luminance as I don't like running full brightness as to not wear the screen out. However, I did buy the extra warranty, so I might as well just push the sucker.
