Oh, and the latter has a matte panel to boot.

Supposing you had enough money to burn and you wanted to mount six together on one of those multi monitor mounts, with your connections built into the stand you are going to have a real problem. Wall mounting might also be an issue, so I suppose you would simply look elsewhere.

Samsung is hoping that design and a few extra features such as MHL and personalised calibration will be enough to justify spending an extra £275

Why only give a report on out of the box performance. You had a colorimeter, why not calibrate it and see how good it can actually be? It's not a big job, and takes no longer than measuring it's out of the box performance.
You mention sRGB mode, which makes me assume this is a wide gamut screen, but the review doesn't actually specify this. What's it's percentage of Adobe RGB1998? How does PLS fair with IPS with black levels off axis? There's so much missing here, and so much fail in this review.
I still don't see why when your CPU, GPU and other hardware reviews are so technically detailed you insist on doing these consumer style monitor reviews. I thought this was a serious hardware and modding site?
Sorry Bit, but your monitor reviews are terrible.
