If I was to buy a new monitor in 2022, I think HDR would be one of the feature I would want to have. I don't believe this one does

Note this monitor is a VA panel and quite dim. Great for a TV, not so great for a computer/work monitor. Just my thoughts having purchased and returned back in March.

"Dim" isn't necessarily a bad thing for regular computer use imo...a lot easier on the eyes when you are only 2 feet in front of it.

Guess that explains why it's being discounted. That might be one the worst brightness levels I've ever seen on a monitor or a TV.

I have this monitor I bought used on Facebook and I’ve loved it since for $350 you won’t find a Monitor that’s 4K and comes with important features like airplay, tv apps & remote. Even though the panel is a little on the lower end side it makes up with the convenience of having usb c pd so that my m1 MacBook Air can seamlessly connect and charge at the same time with one cable. Highly recommended.

Note for HomeKit users: I was able to add this monitor to HomeKit via homebridge (since it runs off of Samsung Tizen OS) so that now I can control the volume, on, off, and inputs all from either iPhones tv remote feature or HomeKit.

How does this compare to Dell 32 Curved 4K UHD Monitor - S3221QS?

I recently got the Dell and I don’t get why it’s so blurry. It’s hurting my eyes. Could it be my USB-C to HDMI cable that is causing the issue? I thought 4K would be super sharp for text and excel etc.

It could be the adapter, scaling settings, resolution etc. sometimes the cheap usbc to hdmi adapter won’t have enough bandwidth to properly display true 4K. I learned this the hard way.

This is a TV disguised as a monitor.

Anyone else got a random flickering issue on this monitor with video over its USB-C connection after its been on for a long time. It happens once or twice a week and sometimes it doesn't even reconnect to the laptop until a reboot.
Other than this issue I'm happy with this monitor after 6 months.

I dig the idea of TV/monitor. Use it as a TV for much better picture quality in streaming services (4K 10bit HDR on TV vs 720p/1080p 8bit SDR on PC) and as a monitor for everything else. However, I'd rather get a used Q50R or the new Q60A 32" ($500 on Amazon) for that purpose.

I think this is a good monitor and would be a great deal for $299. At $350, I think it would be worth the extra $70’ish to get the LG 32UN650-W when is on sale or in stock again. It is also 4K, 32”, 5ms, 350 cd/m2, built in speaker (kinda useless) but has IPS panel.

No offense, but this looks like a message I get from people on kijiji. It's uncanny. lol They always want to lower the price that is already lowest, and explain this and that for reason.

Got it at $299, it is OK, I guess. BUT quality control is hit or miss - def inspect the unit thoroughly. Had to go through 3 to finally get one that was decent/not broken. The first one had a chipped lower-left corner. The second one's panel at the bottom was not shut properly and the cables were sticking out. 3rd one (right now) has a few dead pixels but I accepted it anyway.

Really seems to be an instance of getting what you pay for. If you only have room for one monitor on your desk, this probably isn’t it.

No display port? Won't work with my older graphics card since it can only output [email protected] on DP. Not sure I need a smart display that is going to be connected to my PC.

I'd definitely look there, especially if it is from Amazon.

Go to "Display Settings" (or whatever your OS calls it) and see what resolution your computer thinks it is outputting to the monitor. Also go through the settings to find refresh rate (in Windows 11 it's called "Advanced Display") and see if THAT matches what the monitor wants.

4k is about 2k better than your eyes can see, so it should be super crisp.
One who is offended by truth, has no place among those who seek wisdom.
