The U28D590D or 590D for short from Samsung is the monitor that's bringing 4K into the realm of affordability for desktop users. It's 28", boasts 1ms GTG pixel response times, and support for 1B colors... But is it really as perfect as it seems??

Is there any particular reason no one's pushing for a 60 - 120hz 1ms-3ms response time monitor with an IPS Pannel and 4k Resolution .. G-Sync on top of that would be awesome.

 

I'd pay 1000$ For this.

To ya'll: Don't cry it's not IPS.

TN isn't bad, calibrate it right and you have a good looking affordable 4K monitor with a low reponse time..

 

A great monitor and certaintly a step in the right direction for 4K.

@LinusTech

Because you can't have IPS panels that are 120 Hz?

Funny, how they used OS X, which has much better UI scaling than Windows right now :D

@LinusTech

As for the 120hz IPS monitor part, I think it has to do with the technology itself.


My Specs: CPU: i7 3770k.   Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LK. Graphics: EVGA GTX 780 ACX Cooler   RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport (4x4) 1600MHz CL9.   PSU: Corsair HX850.   Case: Fractal Arc Midi R2.   Cooling: Hyper 212 Plus (soon to be NH-U14S).  Storage: OCZ Vertex 3 120gb(boot drive), Western Digital Velociraptor 600gb(main storage), OCZ Agility 2 64gb(cache for the Velociraptor).

As a poker player i really love this monitor. Multitabeling 20 tabels in tile is much better than have to cascade.

Can't wait for mine to show up...the review certainly puts my mind at a bit more ease since we all know how picky Linus is.

 

Was a bit nervous when I hit that order button this past weekend.  Now I am just excited.  More resolution with less monitors!  My desk is going to feel awkwardly empty though :(

 

I have a feeling I'll want to create a custom mount for this thing though.  That stock seems kind of crappy.

Great review!

 

Personally, I'm waiting for the ASUS ROG SWIFT!

 

If I hadn't been using a 120hz monitor before I would probably just go straight to 4K monitors, since there would be no trade-offs cause they are all 60hz.

 

Regardless, I believe that 1440p will take my gaming to the next level, especially with 120+hz and G-Sync!
