I ordered this online today to go with my new build. There are almost no reviews about it though. One read, "solid, but probably not for gamers". It seems to me though that the specs would be more than decent considering my GPU is at best considered a lower to mid-range card.

I'll be running it on an msi GTX 1060 Gaming X 6GB GPU at (native) 2k resolution.

Does anyone have any experience with this monitor?

The monitor specifications can be found at https://www.samsung.com/us/business/products/computing/monitors/800-series/sh850-series-26-9-ls27h850qfnxgo/ but it lacks detailed specifics in relation to input port revisions. The msi GPU supports DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0b. Samsung technical support was unable to help.

I believe I've made a good choice. I chose this one over other similar displays of WQHD technology because I read that the monitor casing is solid, as is the stand (which apparently doesn't wobble,) and it has a great adjustment options. Plus, it comes with a standard 3-year warranty, which is a bonus.

If any of the moderators read this, perhaps you can suggest a future review of it? It was released this past summer (2017), so that's probably why I can't find many reviews yet - professional or end-user.
