Yep, noticed this one from mailer this morning. Been keeping an eye out for a while now and figured get it this time.
Anyone know if it already comes with a 200mm to 100mm reducer plate for wall mount? My wall mount arm is 100mm for the smaller monitors.

Reviews seem pretty good if not for a serious gamer, which I'm not. It is from newegg so I already know I have to like it an not send back once opened.

Thanks

oh yeah, thanks for the post OP!!!!!

Thanks OP! I bought this yesterday. Don't know why this deal isn't getting much love. Newegg after taxes was $550 for me.

Price is warm at most, and newegg charges CA tax. So no go. Missed BF $400 deal and wait is longer than expected now.

I bought this from newegg for $550, then paid $70 for the extended 4 year warranty. This is a neat monitor. It has a USB connection for updating the firmware. The only blaring downside is the excessive bevels around the edges. I have not owned the 43 inch dell or acer variant of the same monitor.

To be clear, I used display port and got 10 bit 60 hz at 4K with 4:4:4 chroma right off the bat. With hdmi 4k TVs you will struggle with the hdmi lottery to get anything close to that. Nevermind the excessive latency on television sets.

Samsung's 4k 4:4:4 tvs always work fine via HDMI - I've been using them for years now. Bad videocard drivers can cause HDMI 2.0 issues, but an active DP to HDMI adapter sorts that out. Response time and input lag are also great on 2017 tvs, a little slower on the 2016, and even slower on the 2015 sets. Even a 35ms input lag on the older Samsung tvs isn't terrible - for non-paid/profession gamers, that's around the point where predictive play and strategy matters far more than the peripherals they are using. 18ms monitor vs 20ms 2017 tv is negligible.

I'm happy to see 40in-class UHD workstation displays becoming more mainstream. We've even been deploying them at work. I'd be very happy to see DP replace HDMI in all the devices that it can, but not sure we'll be getting 70"+ livingroom displays with DP.

Curious what the color accuracy figures are - will check them out later. High color gamut and dynamic range would be the next step up for creative folks, and where monitors may start leaving tvs in the dust.
