This monitor is 60hz with 1ms response time. It has been available from Korea for about a month and many users have confirmed it.

Nice screen but it would be if you said what version of HDMI it had, 1.4 only has bandwidth to do 3840 x 2160 at 30Hz but 2.0 can do it at 60Hz. I would assume because they have not said what version of HDMI is it is only 1.4. nice but it is a bit like the HD ready sets we got when HD came in (786 lines instead of 1080).To sum it up nice but ultimately outdated and not worth it.

4k 60hz via DisplayPort with 1ms response time. No other screen at this price comes close to that. People who already have one say the colors are comparable to the Korean PLS/IPS monitors that have been popular. The viewing angles are also said to be exceptional for TN (granted not quite as good as IPS or PLS).

Yes but the HDMI is only 1.4 you can do 60Hz but only if you use Display Port (1.2Ver)http://www.samsung.com/uk/news/localnews/2014/samsung-european-forum-2014-samsung-showcases-latest-consumer-and-business-monitors (Key Specifications are at the bottom)

Im guessing this works like the Asus monitor where you use the dual HDMI ports to make 1 full desktop.If it is just 1 cable to achive 60hz, what kind of connection is it?

These comments are funny...JUST USE DISPLAYPORT! Seriously though, nearly all recent GPU's have a displayport, why even use HDMI?

Because most kids still don't know what DisplayPort is. :)

Supports HDMI 1.4 (3840 x 2160, 30Hz) Display Port 1.2 (3840 x 2160, 60Hz)___You can connect two sources using HDMI like a Laptop and your Desktop at the same time if you ever wanted that.___http://www.samsung.com/levant/consumer/computers-peripherals/monitors/led-monitor/LU28D590DS/ZN-features

It's still expensive to me, but if this turns out to be a pretty good gaming monitor, I just might have to get it. Samsung makes decent monitors, as does ASUS and Planar. I am currently using a 21" Planar monitor and this thing is very clear. Just want something bigger and of high resolution form my photography hobby.

My ADD can't deal with all the back and forth about 2160p @ 60Hz. Can somebody give me a conclusive, factual answer without sparking 10 replies full of debates? If this thing does 60Hz at full resolution (It's WQHD, not 4K) then all I need to know is if I add a second GTX 780 classified, can I run games at 50 - 60 fps, and I'm good. Thanks, everybody.
