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.

Conclusion With the Samsung U28D590D, you can view 4K content without spending a bundle. Its 28-inch TN panel delivers a very sharp image and displays light and dark shades of gray without issue. You don't get any USB ports or height and swivel...

Samsung U28D590D Display 4k Monitor Review: Great Screen at a Great Price


One of the best manufacturers of 4K TVs on the market, Samsung has also introduced this fantastic display monitor onto the 4K display screen market and done so at a surprisingly low price. At $500, the U28D590D is at least $300 dollars cheaper than...

Awesome 4K/UHD picture quality ; Renders regular HD superbly ; Full HDMI and Display connectivity ; Sleek elegant screen design ; PIP 2.0 gives you access to split screens for multiple devices ; Great size for a desktop monitor ; 1 millisecond response...

Could use the more modern HDMI 2.0 ports ; Lack of built-in speakers ; Low HDMI refresh rate ; 4K monitors will continue to get cheaper

The bottom line as far as the U590 is concerned is that this is a great 4K monitor for any gaming, video watching and computer work needs you might conceivably have. There are better, more feature rich and possibly visually clearer monitors out there...

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...

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...

Trash product


Do not buy unless you have a lot of cash to replace every 2 yrs. Would be 0 egg if option never had a monitor die this early. Really sad of a well know Co. to not support there high end products better.

Nice till it dies
