I am waiting for the 32in curved Samsung that Costco had; deciding which of the two to keep once they are side-by-side. I had a curved 32in before and found it just "right" in terms of size but it had been 1080P - 32in flat feels just slightly too large BUT better than using two separate screens... especially for video calls on half the screen and documents under discussion on the other half.
I was looking at the Samsung but very weird you can't find many reviews on this.

Side concern with many Samsung monitors (not necessarily related to image quality) is the "nub" you're left with on the back if you don't want to use the included stand, but instead want to use the Vesa mount. The way the stand is designed, the only way to remove the "nub" is to remove the entire back cover, and for that reason I avoid Samsung monitors these days.

Well most electronic items have 1 year warranties, even $5000+ tvs. So the manufacturer doesn't really care if you have to buy another one after a year or two.

This one has two screws at the bottom of the "nub" for just this reasons it seems (do not have to remove the entire back)

Good to know, I'll have to see if I can get a close look at one of the newer model Samsungs. Maybe they've seen the error of their ways... ;)

edit: Confirmed the two screws in the manual (it's under "wall mounting" as opposed to stand installation/removal)

It costs the manufacturer to keep parts in stock.

They only need to stock parts if the product fails within the warranty period.

Samsung generally only has 1yr on their monitors as well.
When monitor shopping, I don't even consider samsung and lg because of this.
I can vouch for that. Never had an LG monitor but Samsung one failed after 4 years. My older Philips monitor is still going strong after 10+ years, today!

That is not at all the experience I had right out of the box without any adjustments. 1440p looked great for text (using Excel, Word, web browser, zooming text, etc)

I did have issues when I started playing with the settings (random custom settings to see what I could push) on my video card but I just reverted back to standard (i.e., non-custom) settings and it was back to being crisp.

what? lol, you must have either wonky settings, or monitor is defective. I have the exact opposite experience with out of the box settings.

Tempted by this monitor, looks great! Just so close to black friday and it has been this price for a long time, thinking I should wait for a hot deal.

Play around with the settings and make sure the drivers are installed.

Also keep in mind you have 90 days so if something is better during Black Friday or Boxing Day you can return this.
