The Samsung U32E850R is a 31,5 inch monitor with 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) resolution and support for DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort and two HDMI connections.
Pro Great image quality
This monitor is aimed to consumers that want a premium large screen display with high color accuracy. It offers a 99% sRGB coverage, and even exceeds it in some areas to provide extra saturation and vibrancy without artifacts. When calibrated, it has outstanding color accuracy that beats more expensive monitors. Brightness measures at 350 nits, suitable for even brightly-lit rooms.
Pro Allows you to use two inputs at once
The Samsung U32E850R has a great multitasking feature, which allows you to use two devices on the screen at the same time. You can either choose to use an overlay mode (picture-in-picture), or display the images side by side (picture by picture).
Pro Lots of signal input and USB ports
The screen comes with four different input ports: HDMI 1.4, HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2 and DisplayPort mini. All of them, except HDMI 1.4, support 4K signals at 60Hz. There are four USB 3.0 ports located on the monitor: two ports on the bottom and two on the side for easy access. They also support rapid charging for external devices.
Pro Can be easily adjusted
Despite the large size of the monitor, it’s easy to make adjustments to the screen. It has an impressive height adjustment ratio, can be swivelled, tilted and switched to portrait mode. VESA mounts are supported as well for those who want even greater flexibility.
Pro Extremely sharp
The Samsung U32E850R uses a 4K-display with a resolution of 2160 x 3840 pixels, which is four times the amount of pixels of a Full HD display. This results in an extremely sharp image and overall great image quality. In terms of pixel density which is measured in pixels per inch, this display achieves just a little bit under 140 ppi. A 32 inch display with a Full HD resolution would only achieve half of that - 70 ppi.
Con Size limits viewing angles in corners
Although the U32E850R uses a PLS panel which is known for its great image reproduction and viewing angles, the sheer size of this display results in slightly worse viewing angles in the corners. The small difference is noticeable in dark situations.
Con Slower response time
The response time of this display is limited a 4 ms, which is excellent for normal usage but isn't as fast as some other monitors. In fast-paced gaming situations, ghosting may occur - ghosting happens when the previous image can still be seen on the screen due to a slower refresh rate.
Con Maximum refresh rate limited to 60Hz
The U32E850R is not as fast as some other monitors, despite the fact that is supports AMD FreeSync. The minimum refresh rate is 48 Hz, with a maximum of 60 frames per second. Some of the more fast-paced games don't look as fluent on this iiyama as on other displays with a higher refresh rate.
Out of Date Pros + Cons
Con High-end GPU required in order to enjoy 4K gaming
Because 4K offers four times the amount of pixels compared to a Full HD screen, that also means your graphics card will have to work a lot harder. You'll need a high-end GPU or even multiple graphics cards in order to fully enjoy games in 4K resolution with maximum settings, although you can always choose to display in 1080p.
