Probably one of the best prices I've seen for a 27/28 in 4K IPS monitor.

Fixed stand but is VESA mountable, 2 HDMI, 1 Displayport, Audio/headphone out.

And yes, because there is always that guy *this is 60 Hz only*

I bought this a few weeks ago and love it. Text is sharp and the colors are awesome. I have it next to a 5k 27 inch iMac and actually prefer the Samsung monitor.
4k and scale only, don't set 1440p.
I bought a pair of these last year during a similar sale. One of the panels was really good, the other had terrible light bleed. So I couldn't get them to look even close to matched. So I bought a third one to replace the bad one, but it wasn't noticeably better. I ended up returning all 3. So my advice is to examine for light bleed first.

I don't have great eyesight so I ran these at 4k 200% scaling and it looked great (on the good one).

Note: the vesa mount can be problematic depending on what kind of mount you use.

I know it will be sharper than my 27in 1080p. I can see pixels and it looks bad. I'm going 2k and up from now on for my monitors.

4K at this size means you're going to have a 1080p image at 28". Too small of a screen to read it at native res and kind of ridiculous to have an effective 1080p monitor at this size. 5k at 27" replicating a 1440p is the sweet spot.
I have a 28 inch 4k monitor that i set at 1440p and it looks fine. Or you can set at 4k and windows 10 is pretty good at scaling.

Scaling 4K to 1440p is not producing square pixels though so you're not getting a clear picture and it's more taxing on the GPU. For best results you won't a whole number multiplier which is why 5k/2 = 1440 and typically a 1440p monitor is at 27". If it works for you, great, but there are trade offs.

It really depends on your eyes. I'm lucky enough to have good eyes and run a 28" at 4K and love it.
