    Samsung U32D970Q Reviews

    U32D970Q 32" 16:9 4K LCD Monitor is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Monitor You don't notice how good this monitor is until you place it next to another one, in my case a few years older. I've always purchased high quality monitors, so the ones I'm comparing it to are no slouch either. A beautiful monitor that displays colors you have to see to believe. Only downside is you still can't use this monitor at its native resolution, text and icons are just too small. Need to use UI scaling of 125-150%. Samsumg please make a monitor with similar features around 40. There are many people out there looking to run 4K at native resolution without any need to scale up the UI. There are a few others on the market, but there quality is nowhere near this unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best 4K monitor on the market nothing else !!! Including this last unit that I bought personally in B&H New York I own 3 (yes three !!!) U32D970q, 2 of them runs with a powerful AMD Firepro W7100 workstation grade GPU card in an i7 PC. The best uniformity, the best colors and a very sleek design tha simply cant be compared to anything from Dell, Eizo, etc.. Only defect: the frame is not real metal but a very good plastic imitation that could be a little more scratch proof. And for reflectivity issues, dont worry has a mate finish.... not like the toys that now Apple and others pretend to sell as professional units.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Own Two - 1 Year Review - Professional Grade I tried many 4k monitors, and other brand 30-32 inch versions, LGee and Dellz 32 inch were not good enough for Professional level use. None came close to this monitor. PROS: Internal Color Correction Hard Ware for color accurate Print, Web and Software Development work is excellent. Monitor Calibrates every time you turn it on. Easy Controls, Real Buttons, and not heat sensitive cheap ones. Early Adopter: I have had these for almost 1 year and paid the premium for this. I purchased these the day they hit retail stores. Never regret purchasing these. I started with these on Win7 and it was great. However, You will need to have windows 10 for up-scaling of text and GUI in certain programs like photoshop, maya, or else you will possibly lose your mind cause its so small. Once i did get win 10 it made this monitor more enjoyable and easy on the eyes. I have found it to be 100% accurate for Print work with an Epson 3880 and have had no dead pixels or flaws after a year of day in and day out use. No major light leaks when pure black background is selected. Way better in this regard compared to other brands. A truly pro-grade monitor. Good for gaming on a GTX980 at 1920x1200/1080, or higher if you need it. Works great on CSGO and BF4. Automatically will switch portrait and landscape orientation without any issues, when LCD is rotated. Top of the line. Will Dim to a very low level and still maintain White and Blacks for Print. So you can save your eyes from burn out. They include a Vesa wall mount also with screws for the back of the LCD, none for the wall. They include all the cables, HDMI, DVI and DISPLAY PORT. and a USB3 for the HUB on the back. Haven't used the speakers a lot, but when i did they were good for sound from DISPLAY PORT OR HDMI. You don't need any special drivers or software to get this monitor to work. Bottom line, If your a super Computer User and want the best, this is it. Cheers. Inspect your monitor when it arrives for groups of off color pixels, or single ones, usually its just dust and you can wipe them off if that makes sense. It may look like a dead pixel, but more often than not its dust. Don't use water on the screen to clean it, even tho that's what it says in the manual. Use microfiber cloth and tiny amount of the solution. Let monitor cool down first, or before you turn it on for the day. CONS: None.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great monitor! I have been using a 21 Sony GDM-F500R CRT monitor for over 14 years and have been very impressed with it. Monitors have come and gone and no LCD panel that I have seen over the years could ever outperform it, until now. Right out of the box, the U32D970Q had an absolutely fantastic display showing great contrast along with a full and accurate color gamut. I am using this monitor for photography, video and telecommuting from work. This Samsung does each task admirably. I like the fact that I can have six or more sessions/windows open across the screen and each instance is razor sharp. Currently, I am running this with a 3.6 GHz Intel Core i7 4790 processor and an Nvidia GTX 760 via Displayport and it performs very well. If I were using this strickly for 4k UHD video, I would recommend using a much more powerful video card. This monitor can definitely handle the extra horsepower! There is nothing about this monitor that I do not like. I really like the edge to edge sharpness and the matte display. I have found no glare whatsoever. The controls take a little getting use to, but once it is set, I find I never have to use them again. I have been using the Samsung U32D970Q for about 4 weeks now and I highly recommend it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best...! I am a college instructor of photography and have been since 1979. In deciding on a monitor, I did some research. After looking at what seems to be 20 or 30 different choices, I selected the Samsung. Why? The color fidelity is quite accurate and is very important to me. The 4K of the monitor is useful in perceiving the focus of any image. All in all, this monitor has helped me to increase the quality of my work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply a beautiful monitor This monitor is the best looking computer monitor I've ever owned. It handles fast motion videos smoothly and the automatic color adjustment when it turns on, makes (picture) colors look realistic and true to life. Simply a beautiful monitor, and well worth the money. note... my computer guy says you'll need windows 10 to run this properly (scaling the video or some technical reason, i dont remember exactly).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samsung U32D970 Q the best monitor available This 4 K monitor is out of this world, viewing photos on this device is most revealing and the sharpest, I have ever seen. Buy it, you won't be disappointed. LN

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Production staple Nothing to put together, already comes with its own stand, you can swivel it 180 degrees. Comes with a non-adjustible wallmount. Amazing features, great contrast, and of course, industry leading color calibration (install the software) Sticking w samsung LCD's for all my monitoring needs, well worth the $
