One big factor is if you use a vesa mount; most are 75mm and 100mm metal brackets you use. This will only take 75mm so the only way to get 100mm bracket to work is with bushings and longer screws or bending current plates or finding a 75mm bracket which I could not find.

I was going to get this but on fence now because of this.

Question is, is it better than the panel in the LG 27UK and 27UL series. It's a much newer panel so I'm hopeful but there just aren't many reviews of monitors using it.

I got the Asus VG289Q from Best Buy, over all the panel is good and colours are really vibrant, it's the just that the colour red is very prevalent in this panel. I tried multiple profiles and setting, but to no avail, the colour red is just too overwhelming. Anything red just pops too much and you can never set is right without affecting the overall image quality.

This has some good reviews. Perhaps you just got a bad panel?

I tried 2 different panels because I really liked the monitor overall, but it was still the same issue. Basically it looked like people have a really bad sunburn when you watch videos on Youtube or Netflix. I was watching the video posted by one of the members and I can see from the video how overly red that VW Golf looks. Other than that it's an excellent monitor.

If you take a look at reviews here https://www.samsung.com/au/monitors/ur55/, someone mentions that the curve at the back makes even VESA 75 a no go. If you believe in a random review post.

Sorry I meant to say that I used the same website as source. DisplayNinja. Maybe they don't maintain the lists. I also used https://www.displayspecifications.com/ to cross reference panels

If anyone wants to nerd out, here is the panel in detail, https://www.panelook.com/M280DCA-E3B_In ... 42094.html

Which models specifically? I found a video of a comparison of the posted Samsung with 27UL600-W

Acer CB282K
I also bought it from Bestbuy when it was 379.99. It's height adjustable and can do portrait. The downside is ugly base(wide as a basketball), cheap silver look, the bottom bezel is distracting to me. Other than that, great monitor, also has speakers. UI is simple.

I think only the Acer CB282K and the ASUS are height adjustable

Yeah it doesn't matter, the 600,650,850 are all the same panel with different features like usb-c and adjustable stand.

I picked up the Lenovo L28u-30 for $364.77 (after tax and Rakuten cashback). Ordered on Sun - Delivered on Wed.
I love it, the size, colors, perfect for my needs. The stand is not the best in the market, but not a big deal to me as I plan to replace it with the monitor mount.

It does not have the HDR. But, I don't know what difference HDR would make TBH. Is it worth getting the Samsung U28R550 for a few extra $?

I would say no, save your money for the monitor mount
