Sleep mode, I believe. Eventually would shut itself off, after some time.

Others can confirm.

Are there any compatibility issues pairing this with a GTX 660? I mainly watch movies / tv shows on my computer and won't be playing any video games.

Make sure your card supports 4K @ 4:4:4 @ 60hz. If yes, you're golden.

If it's 30Hz, your eyes will revolt.

I'm thinking about this TV.

I've been using a 39" UltraHD TV on my desktop for years. It has stopped working (I hope to fix it). Meanwhile, I've switched to a 32" UltraHD monitor and I find that the size isn't quite as useful for me. I use it mostly for old-school programming (Linux, lots of terminal windows) and web browsing.

I wonder if 43" might be a little better than 40". I'm pretty sure 50" would be worse.

I don't really want something smart. That just gets in the way and goes obsolete. But I imagine that I could just use this thing as if it were non-smart, without connecting it to the internet.

Thanks for the heads up; looks like my old gtx 660 card can only do 4k 60hz @ 4:2:0.

My wallet is safe for now.

Debating now, should I get the Hisense 43R6107 or this for $1 more?

No contest bud, the NU7100 as a monitor.

I like Hisense as a TV, but as a monitor it has too many yield/consistency issues.

Not with the remote app on iPhone but your apple tv remote will turn it on and control tv volume.

What about using it just as a TV? I returned a Hisense because of poor sensor, would randomly stop responding to the remote. Hoping it was just a defect. Had a Sammy before, did a great job until it fell on the ground.

Hisense is fine as a TV if you're prepared to deal with exchanges if you get a faulty TV.

The risk of needing an exchange is a fair bit lower for Samsung.

Anyone have uniformity issues with their TV? I notice the bottom of mine is a bit dimmer most noticeable on bright screens like white.

Tough call. You lose the cheap Costco 5 year warranty, which more than offsets the cost if you want the warranty.
