Considering there is no VESA mount socket, I think the Samsung mointor is better because it has a better mount.

I have one. No VESA mount as others have mentioned, but it's a very affordable 144hz monitor. I don't love the weird one button on the back to get to settings and switch display, but it's been a great monitor. Going to 144hz was a huge change for me and I love it, so I've really enjoyed this.

Stand is turdy, doesn't have that crackly wobble that a lot do. The curve isn't a huge deal since it's 24in, but it's nice and the viewing angles are good. Response times seem great to me (I mainly play fps like Overwatch and Destiny), and the display looks better to me than a TN panel.

If you're looking for a budget 144hz monitor and don't care about VESA mounting, I'd say pull the trigger.

Edit: I forgot to add, the first one I got had some minor cracks due to shipping. Newegg did an advanced replacement for me that was super quick and easy.
