Another way that makes it look dated is that the aesthetic design has glossy white and translucent blue plastic is like a 1999' Apple iMac.
Maybe someone at Samsung has nostalgia for those. I really don't.
It appears that this monitor is a very small update of last years' S29D390H with a new stand. That screen has got pretty bad reviews for its build quality.
The stand does not only lack a VESA mount, it is not height-adjustable either.
It has AMD FreeSync though, so I suppose that the intended target demographic is gamers.
For gaming, the resolution is good enough. (BTW, screen resolution is measured in pixels-per-inch, not pixels per total: that is video resolution)
For desktop work in 2015, I agree that it is not.
