    Great, yet suffers from Quality-of-life Issues

    This monitor does everything that it says it will do. The picture quality is great, response speeds are exceptional and customizable through the menus. The base functions are as intended. Great for gaming (Fast response with MBR/others, 165Mhz with DP and capable PC) and general use. The reason I give three stars is because this monitor suffers from some quality-of-life problems that are very annoying, can be disruptive, and takes away from the overall enjoyment of the product. The monitor has tendency to cut off after inactive use instead of going into a proper standby mode that will allow it to turn on when receiving a signal from a device. In a multimonitor setup, this will cause the other monitors to take over as the main, requiring the Odyssey to be manually powered on which causes windows to go crazy with the display configuration. Another issue is that when in a multi-monitor setup, if HDR is used, some display options are broken or causes massive compatibility issues with the other displays. I am unsure if using all Samsung products would make a difference, and for reference I have a Dell and HP monitor connected to the same PC. I also use a docking station for work that connects via HDMI to the Odyssey and the auto switching ability is non-functional at least in my experience. These are hardware problems that have stifled and frustrated me in my use of it. There is another glaring issue that is intermittent but very annoying and shocking when it happens. If the monitor is off for a long time, manually turned on and given signal too quick, or too cold, the monitor will display a mess of colored vertical lines reflecting the background image that should be displaying. The only way to correct this is to unplug the monitor entirely from power, or sometimes an on/off cycle will fix it. In the case of cold, it took roughly an hour to correct with lingering effects until the monitor warmed up. By the time I called a Samsung rep, it has dissipated just enough to not be able to capture a picture of. This is extremely annoying and worrisome and has left me wondering if my monitor is broke when it happens. The firmware is current, and everything is up to date, I have tried various configurations of options, and nothing seems to have a permeant fix to the problem. Overall, the monitor is a great product for what it is indented to do and sold for. The biggest problem is these QOL problems that dampen the total enjoyment and functionally. I imagine a firmware update, or some kind of troubleshooting option would be a good fix, but Samsung (as of my call) was unaware of this issue. In the event of repairs or solution, this monitor would be a standout in its class and price range. I would not recommend unless you are comfortable with the performance accompanied by these issues I have listed above.
