    "The Samsung MU9000 is a beautiful and well designed 4K 55" television monitor. I bought this recently and it is just amazing. It has excellent picture quality and very good motion handling. The colors are stunning and gorgeous. The contrast between the darkest darks and the lightest lights are extremely realistic. I am very happy with this monitor and the only thing I regret is not getting it in a larger size."

It's 4K and is a TV with an excellent contrast ratio, amazing colors, and a beautiful picture. It's pricey, but really worth the cost if you love to game. I highly recommend this TV.

    "This is a pretty good 4k monitor for this price, but it's a slightly older model, and I've seen newer and larger screens for the same price. It doesn't take away from the quality at all and I found that everything looked great on-screen. I'd recommend this monitor a little more strongly if the price were a bit lower. If you're looking for the best deal for your money, I'd say look somewhere else."

    "I play a lot of video games on my laptop, but the screen isn't quite optimized for that activity. I grabbed this monitor and a controller to hopefully enhance my gaming experience. This screen is curved to best allow my peripheral vision to take in everything at once, but also came with a bunch of dead pixels, which are very large. For the high price this is selling at, I expected better."

Acer focused on creating a 4K display that has the least amount of distraction as possible by reducing the appearance of the frame. I personally do not need the addition of the speakers in the monitor as I have my own external sound system that I prefer for my set-up, but it would be handy feature for some I am sure. I also love the touch of the off-set base as I plan to get a second one of these for my dual monitor set up."
