I received my monitor today.

I really love it already; the stand is kind of chintzy, but the display is crisp and Freesync is totally noticeable. I feel like my Fury X is actually having to work now (I know it did @ 1440, but still) and while I drop into the 40s playing GTA 5, everything is ridiculously smooth and creamy.

Cool smile.gif glad you are enjoying it. I am not sure about that monitor but I think you can mod the freesync range. I know that panel supports it but not sure how to do it with that monitor.

Basically you can increase freesync range to 35-60 maybe even lower smile.gif

I may have to check into this... Especially for 349! I'm on a 2560x1440 IPS at the moment and have wanted to make the switch to 4k and free sync. How does this compare to an IPS? I know this is one of the new 10 bit TFTs but I can't seem to find any comparisons.

It is not 349 anymore that was on sale, its 433 on new egg now. It uses the same panel as the Samsung, as far as it vs IPS its better than a regular TN but not as good as IPS. If not having IPS issues are important than this is the best you can get (short of OLED which would be ungodly expensive) thumb.gif

Honestly I think a lot of screen selection has to do with use scenario and that hype clouds that. I think I said that earlier in here, If you are doing work that requires perfect color reproduction then IPS is the only way to go. If you are gaming, then the drawbacks are not really worth the "Perfect color" because honestly in a game how much does that really matter?

If your playing a fast action game at 4k with immense realism how much do you really think you will notice the colors being slightly off. I cant speak for everyone but if I am fighting a dragon in skyrim, or running from enemies shooting at me in battlefield the last thing on my mind is is that shade of black over there correct.

If you really want IPS however there is an LG 4k Fressync monitor for around the same price that is IPS.

According to New Egg and Micro Center it is still $349

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824160278&cm_re=U2879VF-_-24-160-278-_-Product

http://www.microcenter.com/product/457904/U2879VF_28_FreeSync_4K_LED_Monitor


I think I might order one when I get paid Friday.

Like you said the colors aren't a huge deal to me...it is nice though having IPS but I would have to agree it's not a deal breaker for 4k and Free Sync.
