A Review of the Samsung 4K UHD-QHD UE590 28-Inch Screen U28E590D LED-Lit Monitor


The prices of 4K monitors just keep going lower as quality specs become more common. This is definitely the case with the Samsung UE590 and for that reason, this anticipated monitor has a good chance of becoming a best seller in 2015's roster of 4K PC...

Excellent refresh rate ; Great color reproduction ; Two HDMI 2.0 ports ; Includes AMD FreeSync ; good color accuracy ; handsome physical design ; excellent response time

No USB ports ; TN screen limits off-angle viewing

The Samsung U28E590D offers one of the best economically priced 4K gaming monitor packages on sale right now. This model is almost perfect for 4K gamers and especially good for AMD GPU using 4K PC gamers. Other uses, for office and home-based work also...

Very Happy With Purchase


4K needs to be the standard resolution. It's amazing.

* Love the 4k resolution. * Love the 1ms response. * Love that I have zero lit/broken pixels. After several months (almost half a year) of ownership, this is still the case. * Love that it's backward compatible with HDMI, and you can have it up and...

Can't tilt the monitor up or down like you can with must monitors, I get around this by using monitor base to increase its height to the desired position. That's the only con so far.

Now I can see more with this monitor


- Shipping by Newegg was fast and so was the Fedex delivery

I got monitor to replace my old LG 25" ultrawide monitor and I am certain that I made a right decision. LG served me well but it only has 2K resolution so I am now using it as an external monitor to my Apple MacBook. The Samsung monitor is my first 4K...

- Vertical height adjustment

Amazing monitor for work. Still need to test out for gaming.


- I got this for 350 last year and finally set it up nearly 6 months later. I love it and is better than I had hoped.

- Tons of screen real estate. I've got Visual Studio running side by side with SQL Management Studio one one monitor and have all the space I need. - The blacks are rich enough for me. No noticeable light bleeding from the corners. - If I use it for...

- The VESA mount is on the top versus the middle, so a little odd at first, but worked out well for me. I could see this as a deal breaker for some.

Dead pixel, but otherwise great


- I actually like the stand a lot. The two common criticisms I saw when researching are that (1) the screen just tilts rather than being adjustable up and down; and (2) the stand feels flimsy. I haven't had an issue with either of these. However, I...

- Absolutely beautiful - Controls are on the back so you don't have to look at them. I dislike monitors with a lot of buttons, logos, etc. all around the bottom of the frame. - Plugged it into my Surface Pro 4 using a Display Port 1.2 cable and...

- Arrived with a dead pixel. It stays black in all situations. This is a real bummer, and the reason I am only giving it 3 eggs. If not for this, it would be 5 for sure.

Great Value with Superb Color and Quality


The joy stick style menu button will take a little getting used to.

Great color and no dead pixels (at least that I can see). The monitor is well constructed and the overall quality is excellent.

Two: (1) This monitor does not have HDCP. That means if you need to use a HDMI cable to display protected output (a DisplayPort does not work for me) and (2) There is some wobble on the stand. I do not consider either to be a significant problem.

Monitor arrived with a crack in it.


When I received this monitor after waiting a month and a half it had a crack in it. I returned it to Newegg for a replacement. Because it wasn't in the exact same packaging I was refused a replacement monitor. When I contacted customer service they...
