Surely it works with anything that has HDMI output?


Don't call me Shirley
I've got one of these and the picture quality is super awful. Got it for my son, feel sorry for him!

Are you sure it's this monitor? If so, maybe it's faulty, as the reviews completely contradict you!

Pretty sure.

Contrast is a bit crap, and things look washed out. Messing with the contrast and brightness doesn't improve anything.

I normally buy monitors from traditional manufacturers and this is my first from a Samsung.
I thought they must know a thing or two about decent panels and what makes a good image.

Also it was on offer, my son just started university and needed it for the PC I had just built for him.
Monitor 32" and FHD? Ew.

It wont look FHD at all when you're sat that close.
The thought of sitting in front of a 32 inch 1080p image just gave me eye cancer
Edited by: "ollie87" 7th Jul
No speakers ? Not good
1080p 32”, no thank you! Pixel density will be god awful if used as a monitor. Wouldn’t go 1080p for anything bigger than 27” imo
Surely PS4 and Xbox1 games have no choice but to be viewed in 1080p max. I don't think this is marketed for PC gaming. This should be great for my Switch. Cheers.

I think it’s worth putting more research into Samsung, they’re making some really good equipment now.

Don’t be put off by one experience.
Not sure why this is hot. 32 inch and 1080p.

All tn panels are like that.

You need to calibrate it using proper hardware and software. I use a colurmunki and displaycal.

I've owned several monitors probably over 10 in the past 10 years majority of them high end. My current is a 165hz g sync 32 inch 2560 x 1440 and calibrating it and all my previous tn panels and VA panels made them look just as good as my top end dell ips panels used by professional photographers and video editors.

Investing in a calibrator was the best purchase I ever made. Problem is too many cheapskates just copy settings online and that simply doesn't work.

I'm telling you that a proper calibrator and displaycal software is able to turn the worst looking monitor into one which looks perfect. I've tried to convert friends even offered to calibrate theirs for beer money and nobody has ever took up the offer.

It just shows you the mentality of people today they want a perfect product but not willing to pay for it.

Nothing wrong with 1080p people forget we used to use 800*600 on 19 inch screens and they were fine too.

Too many people just look at spec these days rather than use their eyes. More fool them. This is coming from someone that has a 2560 * 1440 screen at the moment.

Correct.

I switched one to a 1440p and its much better.
fred.tyzack07/07/2019 11:25

Please explain


Like I said before pixel density after a certain point makes no difference.

You have to remember monitors used to be 800*600

Thr bigger the monitor the further you have to sit back. So it balances out.

This is a monitor. People will sit fairly close to it. If your using it for a pc, then you will be no more than 60cm from the screen, therefore it being eye rape. If your using it as a console then you will most likely still be sat close, hence it also being eye rape. However if you are using it as a tv with a set box or something, then maybe it would be ok. But still I don’t think this monitor is very suited to anything. There are better options out there.

It's an awful resolution to use with this size really should look at 1440p or 2160p at that size.
I bought this monitor with this deal, very happy with what I got as I always intended to use it for console games (xbox one and ps4), of course there is better monitors out there for high powered pc's but for console it is near perfection

At 60cm you Will only be able to focus on about 75% of the screen.

I've had several eye tests with above 20/20 vision had zero issues with a 27 inch 1080p monitor.

Which I had up close. If going bigger it then has to be positioned further away to use the screen properly but about 60cm sounds right that is 2 foot away.

It won't be an issue for anyone other than superman.

Again use one in real life rather than just follow garbage advice on the Internet.

Again that is wrong.

You do realise people use 720p 100 inch projector without issue?

I've used two 27 inch side by side one 1080p the other 2560*1440 and apart from the panels looking different there was zero issues. Yes the higher res looked sharper but that's because they were side by side had they not been I would never have known.

Which is why people shouldn't be saying this res isn't suitable for a 32" monitor.

It will be perfectly fine for most people and it's target market. Which is budget / cheap.

Elitists seem to forget other people have different priorities and that 1080p is actually pretty high res.

Also to run a 1440p monitor you need a 2080 minimum to use decent settings.

Which means rather than spending £150 it's now turned into them spending £1500 on a GPU and 1440p monitor.

I know my monitor was £750 when launched currently around £650.

I don't see someone who would be interested in this would be wanting to spend that kind of money for what people are suggesting

We are trying to give other perspectives on this monitor. Not everything is good, you’ve mentioned 27” at 1080p, yes that’s fine. But remember that 32” is 5” bigger!!! It will look awful, and I would suggest any person who considers this to get a 27” or 24” because it will look a lot better and possibly more affordable. You also said to run 1440p you need a 2080 at least? I don’t know where you got that number from because I run a 1070ti on a 1440p 165hz monitor and achieve at least 144 FPS in most games and very good settings.

As I’ve already said l, in my opinion there are much better options at this price point out there. If your a gamer, I’ve seen 27” 144hz monitor for around £150 on sale! Just keep your options open.

You also mentioned having to buy a gpu etc, I wouldn’t suggest you buy this monitor for gaming. In my opinion it’s too big especially for pc gaming, there are way better options at better prices for gaming.

I run a 1080 and I get 60 fps on Alex legends on my 165hz so yeah 2080 minimum for any modern game.

Cs go I get 300 fps but that is ancient.
i mean these are all great arguments and i don't mean to be overly glib, but none of you are making them from your 720p 24 inch monitor are you?
