That reliability issue is a killer. A very large percentage of user reviews have indicated premature death/malfunction.

The only "professional" review I've seen gives it faint praise and says the monitor itself generally meets the stated specs: http://4k.com/monitor/upstar-m280...or-review/

At $199 it may be worth a shot, but I think the probability of having to hassle with a return or warranty claim is pretty high.

I have one used as external monitor. If you swap it between mac and windows frequently, it will died and have to factory reset. Otherwise, its good

Price and size seems very attractive. Walmart has a larger 4K for $250. I actually prefer something in this size range, and price is right.

The HDMI is 1.4, so to get 60Hz you have to use the DisplayPort interface

I have $11 in "surprise points" as incentive to purchase. And they seem to be giving $42 back in points for this purchase. Even with the flaws, $150 is pretty tempting.

EDIT: The specs say?!?!

- "This Monitor will enable AMD Free-Sync Technology"
- "Enjoy the connectivity provided by the HDMI 2.0 output"

So, it does have HDMI 2.0 and Free-Sync?!

it has 1 HDMI 2.0 and 1 HDMI 1.4
not sure about Free-Sync according to the manual that came with it. the picture displayed is not the same one i have. the logo is all grey in the picture, but the one i have is color red on the word UP instead. the packaging is different than the review website also. they might have updated it.

Sounds like the same fear people were mongering with the Playstation 3D monitor. People said the exact same things. So I bought into the fear and got the 3 year replacement warranty. Which I never do because extended warranties are scams. 3 years on, my P3D monitor still works fine.

Sucks, only getting 27,000 points. 80K would make it a buy.

Try adding it your cart at KMart. I was getting a 40K point offer there. Would have actually preferred to pick it up from KMart as Sears is 20 miles farther.

They've closed down all the Kmarts by me. I'm in a Kmart free zone. The last one was an half hour drive away but it's gone now too.

My order went to "shipped" status in under 2 hours with the Max 90-day trial 2-day shipping.

I did checkout on sears.com website, and it said:

Upstar

Bonus Points: 40,000
Offer: 15,000 points
QB--SYWMAX Members get $15 back in points (15,000 points) when you spend $75 or more on Electronics at Sears and Kmart. Points to expire 90 days after receipt. ONLINE ONLY. Limit 15,000 pts per member

QB--Members get 20% back in points (up to $25 in points) when you purchase qualifying items at Sears, between 6/12/16 - 6/19/16. Points redeemable 6/20/16 - 6/25/16.
Offer: 41,879 points
Total Points You Could Earn: 41,879


Says it will arrive on Wednesday. Some reviews reported that some cables were missing, I hope it comes with the DisplayLink cable, as I don't have any DL-DL cables Wink

FYI: I found reference to Sams Club selling this model monitor for $189 a few months back: https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc...d_monitor/

Research indicates this has the specs of "Generation 2" (or even a newer?) version of the hardware if the HDMI 2.0 is as advertised. Maybe these are more reliable - as the electronics seem the major point of failure - and the "Generation 1" of this model might have had a higher failure rate. A couple comments on the linked Reddit thread suggest this may be similar hardware to the Monoprice 4K system - with a Samsung screen.

I've got a Kmart about 2 miles from me. They apparently have it in stock, so I'm going to check it out when I head to the supermarket next door for some Father's Day BBQ supplies. Kmart is offering me 17,000 points; Sears is offering 42,000.
