This is one of those things you don't think or expect. If you're back 5' or more you'll never see it. If you're at a desk, it'll be there every minute of every day. Apple was one of the first to solve this with their laminated displays where the backlight was glued to the LCD display. In a tablet it's not that back when it's not laminated but in a 43" TV it's there and looks like some minor 3D TV effect.

I'm keeping the TV, but this is one of those things worth mentioning.
Yep, I get that too. It just doesn't bother me because I use my monitor for work and tend not to focus on the little things.

Though like yourself, I was more particular about the ins and outs when I first bought it.

I updated your image link.

Mixed. For the price, you can get better proper monitors at 32" IMO.

- Samsung UH32H850MN 4K 32" QLED Monitor @ $617.65 CAD

- Samsung LC32JG52QQNXZA WQHD (1440p) 144Hz 32" Monitor @ $499.99 CAD

The Samsung Q50R 4K QLED 32" TV (2019) is selling at $699.99 CAD at Best Buy Canada despite being a 2019 panel. I haven't found a successor 2020 panel, but I wasn't impressed when this panel was first released. Apparently it's a downgrade from the respectable Q60R 2019 panel found on the 43".
Samsung Q50R 32" QLED TV
RTings Score: 7.4 / 10

This is a great TV for use as a PC monitor. It has outstanding low latency and it supports most of the common resolutions, and can display chroma 4:4:4 properly in all of them, which is important for clear text. Unfortunately, the image degrades when viewed at an angle.

250 nits seems very low though.
