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.

Then I might get another one, but for now, this one is my first choice.

@LinusTech

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

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!

Do you think i can run this display off of my gtx680? i dont even know if it has displayport 1.2 and cant find it anywhere tbh?

the gtx 680 has dp 1.2. so you can run it, but gaming will be really difficult with this card, if you want to play with this monitor i would recommend at least getting another 680.

@LinusTech

It's because IPS is stupidly slow. IPS will never work for gaming, and TN isn't even a bad panel type, just that companies use cheap TN panels, instead of high quality calibrated TN panels.
