Looking for a new 4K monitor. I don't game. Mainly for productivity and development-use.

Is this a good buy? Thanks for any input.

I am pretty sure I have the same monitor under the Samsung label. I think the panel is MVA, if you need color accuracy then you want an IPS panel. For non graphics work, MVA is fine. MVA tends to have very saturated colors, I like the oversaturated look as everything looks like a cartoon but that is just me.

For productivity and development work, 4k resolution is the cat's meow. The screen size of 32 inches is just about perfect for a 4k monitor. The monitor supports 4k @ 60hz through HDMI or Display Port.

Most UI and IDEs target 1080p, you can fit 4x 1080p screens on a 4k monitor so copying and pasting from one window to another is easy.

Windows 10 has built in support for tiling windows programs; side by side, top and bottom, upto 4x 1080p.

I doubt you will regret getting this monitor.

Prior to a 4k monitor I was using 1440p IPS, it can not fit 2x 1080p windows side by side so that is why I opted for 4k. My productivity definitely went up after I got my 4k monitor.
I workout to get big so I can pickup bricks and ****.
