Mixed Feelings


This is a great 4K monitor for the price. I just wish they did not ship monitors with dead pixels and huge specs of dirt smugged inside the screen.

- Cheap price - Easy to use - 4K @ 60hz - Nice Design

- It came with 1 dead pixel - Colors seem off, not as vivid as I was expecting - The biggest issue, there was a huge particle of dirt or something inside the screen. There is like something smudged in there and there is no way to remove it. It is going...

Excellent 28" 4K monitor! NO dead pixels. My Upstar is great!


I would recommended, no doubt

Light weight! Beautiful design! I hooked it up using the display cable came with the monitor. I have an Nvidia 950, really 4K resolution. Huge screen.

None so far! I hope it lasts.

Amazing monitor for a great price


Driving this w an EVGA GeForce GT 710, which I picked up on Newegg for $30.

Works perfectly at full 4k resolution. Significantly increases my desktop real estate for business applications.

Super buy!


Would highly recommend for most users. Can speak for high end gaming.

Got mine yesterday and connected it to a Gigabyte 4k motherboard. I'm not a super techie but boy after a few adjustments to my preferences this thing is outstanding! I feel it's a great value.

Great 4k Monitor


Great 4k monitor overall for the price.

4k resolution is nice. Accurate colors.

One white pixel. Stand a little flimsy but OK once adjusted.

Great Monitor! Enjoying every ounce of ownership.


If you are considering a 4k monitor and it is the price that has been holding you up, look no further than this monitor. it really is a great bang for your buck.

Love the color and real estate. Being able to put up three columns of code next to each other on the same screen and vertically not having to scroll as much because I can see more has been a big boost to my productivity. I was able to write this review...

The only major kink I have run into is the 4k is only available on the display port, but I knew that before I bought it. When jumping from my laptop to my desktop and back, it is a little time consuming to move around the cable. In the long run though,...

Some people seem to get one and not have a problem, some seem to have to rma to get a new one. I'm just hoping the next one doesn't die out on me too.

When placed in darker place or not-opposite of windows, High Glossy did not matter.

you don't want to miss out


The best monitor I have purchased in a long time. If they made the base with a smooth border it would be 6 stars.

1.Clean look 2.Good Design in general 3. 3840×2160(4K) resolution in this price! 4. Very easy assembly Very good - both for gaming and watching movies.

1. Base edge a little bite rough. I really don't like it. 2. The response time is 5ms other monitor i have usually was 2ms but who really can tell a couple of milliseconds of lag?

Good value and excellent picture quality


This is an update for my previous review

Excellent construction Terrific display - I recently purchased a Samsung 4K U28D590D and the LED backlighting and bleeding is much more pronounced than the M280A1. The screen seemed to be a little dark and subdued when I ran Ubuntu but under Windows it...

Bad pixels or minute debris in the screen - I have had four of these monitors in my possession and only one of them was pixel perfect. The one I have now seems to have a little dust embedded in the panel and perhaps a dead pixel. Fortunately on such a...
