Another thing I forgot to mention is this screen uses a VA panel. As such it does not have the ‘ips glow’ that you will be familiar with. I have also found color reproduction to be extremely good, and the sRGB color setting is calibrated at the factory. I personally use a personalized tweak of the ‘Racing’ color setting most of the time. But if you need photo-realistic color reproduction, this monitor can deliver.
I have used this screen for over a year now, and have been extremely happy with it’s performance. I NEVER notice any sort of color smearing, and I play a lot of games. But - when testing it using very specific situations and looking very carefully (with my face right up to the monitor) you can get very minor color smearing with a fast moving dark color image in very dark environments. If you are incredibly sensitive to this sort of thing, you may notice it as I have seen some complaints about this from other peoples reviews.
Youtube videos I have seen to reproduce this problem are not capturing it properly - and instead are only going to show you the limits of youtubes bit-rate and compression - so you will need to see it in person to make a proper judgement. I can personally say that I find it to be impossible to see unless you stick your face right next to the screen and have a very specific set of colors using several shades of black and dark grey and try to reproduce the effect. But you will likely never notice it without specifically testing for it.
I suggest buying it from a company that has free returns and will cover shipping, (like amazon) and test it out to see if you are happy with it. I was very happy with mine, like I said in my other post, this is one of the best monitors i have used in 40 years. (and i’ve been hands-on with a lot of screens).
The display also comes with a remote which will allow you full control over all the options for the monitor (or the options can also be accessed using buttons on the back of the display). I personally love using the remote for accessing display menu options as it is much more convenient and prevents me from wearing out the buttons on the display itself through repeated use.
The display menu is very intuitive and easy to navigate and comes with a large variety of options.
The one downside of this display is that the included cables are not premium quality. And to get a good experience using all the features you will need to buy a cable to go with it.
The quality of your cable can strongly impact the performance of your display when you are using a large very fast screen like this one. Many of the cheap cables you will find will NOT work properly because running a large, fast, 4k panel requires a great quality connection. using a sub-standard cable is like putting a very thin fuel line on a race car, it just won’t have the bandwidth you need to get that engine running right.
I suggest buying a Cable Matters cable. https://www.cablematters.com/ (wendell also tends to prefer this company for buying cables if my memory is accurate). If you are unsure of which cable to buy from them, write them an email for advice. From personal experience they will respond to your email with a response to your questions of which cable they suggest. (be careful to buy from the actual Cable Matters company if you buy their cable through amazon - Cable Matters is a fairly well recognized brand, and there are a lot of scammers out there which will try to sell you a fake Cable Matters cable.)
I own both of those cables and can say that they both work fine with this display. Neither one is cheap, but you get what you pay for with those cables.
**Just for fun, here is an image of my current setup. I just moved and it is a bit cramped because of a very small desk. I plan on getting a bigger desk when I move again. But this shows the monitor in relation to my other hardware.
For size comparison, the other monitor is a 24" display.
