Samsung U28D590D


With the Samsung U28D590D, you get a 28-inch monitor with a sharp Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) picture and good all-around performance at a reasonable price.

Highly detailed UHD image. Fast pixel response. Good gray-scale performance

Middling viewing-angle performance. Slightly skewed greens. Limited features

The Samsung U28D590D ($599.99) is the latest reasonably priced big-screen (28-inch) Ultra-High-Definition monitor to hit PC Labs, and like the Philips Brilliance 4K Ultra HD Display (288P6LJEB) and Planar IX2850 , it delivers a sharp, highly detailed...

Samsung U28D590D 28-Inch Ultra HD Monitor Review


The first generation of Ultra HD monitors landed definitively in the flagship product category. With prices north of $3000, those first three IGZO-based screens from Asus, Dell and Sharp were only likely to find their way into professional studios or...

Value, brightness, excellent calibrated performance, MagicAngle improves off-axis viewing

No height or swivel adjustment, no VESA mount, no USB hub

Supply and demand has created numerous choices in the Ultra HD monitor category. Even though five different brands all use the same panel part, they do not perform the same. Samsung stands out from the pack with accurate color and an image enhancement...

Video Perspective: Samsung U28D590D 28-in 4K Single Stream 60 Hz Monitor Review


It has been just over a year ago when we first got our hands on a 4K display. At the time, we were using a 50-in Seiki 3840x2160 HDTV that ran at a 30 Hz refresh rate and was disappointing in terms of its gaming experience, but impressive in image...

though that number has fallen to $2400 recently.

An attractive, gaming-focused 4K monitor that's well-suited for general tasks

Attractive design ; Easy to setup ; Image quality (once calibrated) ; Menu controls

No adjustable height ; TN panel ; Requires calibration

Samsung U28D590D


Is Samsung's £450 4K monitor the one to buy?

Solid image quality ; 60Hz over DisplayPort ; Stylish design

Poor input lag ; No USB ports ; Lack of stand versatility

Our only qualm came when we’d finally got the U28D590D out of its box and put it together. The tiny stand looks stylish, but it’s not sturdy – a tap on the top of the screen caused some serious wobble.

Samsung UD590: An all-round 4K monitor that doesn't break the bank


The Samsung UD590 is a 28-inch 4K monitor capable of 1 billion colors, and comes with two HDMI and one DisplayPort inputs. Best of all, it costs just S$899. We tell you if it's any good.

Good brightness, grayscale and color performance; Affordable for a 4K monitor; Useful PiP & PbP modes; Very decent input lag and response time

Stand lacks height, swivel, and rotation adjustments; No VESA mount support; Average black levels performance; Still restrictive viewing angles

Samsung U28D590D UHD 4K 28inch Monitor Review


Gary Wolstenholme reviews the ultra high resolution 4K Samsung U28D590D 28inch monitor.

Good image quality ; High resolution for gaming, video and extra workspace ; Two year warranty ; Can display up to 1 billion colours ; Displayport and HDMI cables included in box ; Displayport and 2x HDMI 1.4 inputs ; Ability to connect multiple...

Stand can be a little wobbly ; Controls on the rear can take some getting used to ; High resolution can make text difficult to read ; Special care needs to be taken to ensure your hardware will support the high resolution ; Viewing angles not as good...

Those who work with high resolution video, and photographers may appreciate the acres of working space offered by this 4K monitor. It's more likely that gamers with the correct hardware, or a compatible console will enjoy the high resolution experience...

Eight Million Pixels and Little Else


As other reviewers have stated, this is an unimpressive monitor. Attempts to adjust contrast have been fruitless. The monitor comes out of the box with washed out colors and nothing can be done about it. The most surprising disappointment, as other...

8,294,400 pixels all present and accounted for

No control over contrast ; Colors washed out ; No VESA Mount ; Flimsy stand

lots of pixels, but could be better


If it wasn't a 4k, because i love the space, I'd want my money back. It's expensive and cheap (cheaply made, cheap panel) all at the same time. Samsung makes much better panels than this and i'm so mad. - and HDMI 2 is out, but this doesn't have, which...

It's a 4k, 3840x2160 display which has 4x the pixel count of 1080p. It's large and offers a ton of real-estate ; picture-in-picture can be useful if you have another computer near by ; TRS connector for headphones in the back

The stand makes this thing wobble really bad. It's a joke. really, i thought about making a stand for it. if your desk shakes even a little, it will teeter back and forth (and side to side) ; High pixel count isn't the same as high quality pixels....

Freezes - Must be hard reset often.


I wish windows had a way to render the desktop and browsers one resolution and games in another resolution. Desktop icons are extremely small, no fault of the monitor though. The display area seems to have curved edges, though from the proper viewing...

Brilliant Display, makes my face melt in 4k games. After adjusting the color range is phenomenal. The sharpness of the textures is unreal. No dead pixels that I can tell, I do not even know if its possible to notice a single pixel

Colors on factory settings seemed to be very out of whack. Example 80-100% red were all identical ; Out of box brightness was so high I got a tan from the screen, and my retinas hurt ; Makes 1080p monitors almost unusable
