Samsung 4K 1ms monitor $754 it has begun - Page 124

post #1231 of 1323
I just picked up this monitor this weekend. And yeah the text is small. I set Windows to 150% font size and it makes it better, but at 150% some text can look a little weird. Like it doesn't scale up well.

After a couple days of gaming and movies on it, i really like it. I'm coming from a 1080p television (not monitor) that i was gaming on before. So this is a huge upgrade. The colors aren't as amazing as my Asus PB278Q 1440p monitor, but i really think the Samsung does pretty well.

Haven't changed any settings yet, just plugged it in and started gaming. So I'll need to do that this week. But so far, it's a very promising monitor. Really can't wait to see what happens in a couple years. 4k is going to be pretty awesome. I'll tell you, i want one of these for my work monitor. I think i'm ruined on 1080p now.

You want to try and leave 'gaming mode' always on. It makes the monitor brighter, so the movies and games look better with this setting. Welcome to the 4k club. smile.gif

hi all i just joined after finding this thread

I was hoping someone could help

i got this monitor a little while ago and wanted to know does anybody have any experience with it and a gtx 770m, thats the mobile version i am talking about on the displayport out, asus g750jx

everytime i connect to the mini displortport/thunderbolt to the monitor it just goes haywire it tries to get a signal but nothing goes through and my laptop screen just goes blankish showing just a cursor

the hdmi out to the monitor works fine all the way up the 4k at 30hz from my asus

I borrowed a dell ultrabook with mini displayport , intel 4400 that works as specified giving me a picture of 2560x1440 60hz, and hdmi 4k at 30hz

i know the desktop version of the gtx 770 is fine with 4k 60hz but the mobile version might have problems with drivers maybe ???

i am going to borrow a 2k displayport monitor to test my laptop card, i am also going to borrow a desktop with a good graphics card to test my monitor to see if it can run 4k at 60hz displayport to see what if anything is wrong

any ideas ???
thanks

mike

ps i am using proper certified accell cable after using other ones with same results

hey jimmy your right about the text scaling looking weird blurry at 150% or call it 2k, and full 100% text scaling or 4k is just to tiny

i find 125% or 3k scaling is a good compromise not too blurry but large enough to read ok ish and still gives you enough screen real estate to work with

maybe future version of windows will sort out the scaling issue for desktop programs properly

anyway i got my own issues with this monitor

maybe we should of bought a pair of 2k ips monitors but then we would be missing that 4k goodness

Have you looked through the nvidia drivers to find a fix? Have you tried installing/uninstalling the monitor driver? We all know how some drivers can make or break a computer.
