Wow! Well good reports were that I unhooked my Crossover and Qnix and plugged in the HDMI cord (10ft from Monoprice) and the Tv Booted up from HDMI 2 (UHD enabled on the Port ) straight to 3240 x 2160p at 60hz. No problems.
Colours were quite amazing compared to my Crossover 324k Monitor. Played FIFA and the Original Titanfall.
No Problems with Fifa but Titanfall at 4k on the 49" Sammy was a little more taxing than I thought. When the port that the HDMI is plugged in to is changed to PC, you cannot enable game mode. You have to change the port to read (Game Machine or whatnot) to enable Game mode but the colours look different, maybe was my settings.

I ordered the 65 inch 2 weeks ago from Samsung and am still waiting for it to ship out since they are on a massive back order apparently. Mine will also be hooked up to my PC to watch some shows, but I don't plan to use it for gaming or as a monitor, just as my main tv.
I too am a little scared that it is shipping via some freight company and hope there won't be any damage issues when I open the box.
If you hook up that TV to the computer and use it to watch shows, you will be in for a treat. Gorgeous display. No Quams whatsover about the money spent.

If you want to try HDR on Netflix check Marco Polo and Daredevil. And on the TV's built in app since HDR is only aviable in 4K
Didn't Realize that
We upgraded the netflix account to incoporate the UHD availability of shows, though I will be able to use the PS4 Pro for that reason in Nov

Money Gunner. Money.
I picked up the 49" on sale from amazon for 996.00 USD. That saved me over 350$. Bestbuy was selling the tube for 1197 + taxes at 9.5%
