5 out of 5 eggsVery nice.

Pros: - Fast delivery even from Korea
- Good color, brightness, no dead pixels.
- Very readable on Windows 7SP1 at 125% scaling increase. 1.50% looked even better but there were compatibility problems with a game.
- 3840x2160 resolution is beautiful.
- Easy to assemble

Cons: - The stand is indeed wobbly. Its ok for me since it is on a stable table.

Other Thoughts: The GTX Titan Black I ordered to go with this monitor arrived the same day. The drivers on the CD were corrupt and the Nvidia website card auto detect Java applet failed. Thankfully manually searching for the driver downloading and installing solved the issue. After installing and rebooting the screen came up at full res. The OSD menu was in Korean. Its the yellow slider icon you want to go to. Once you get there, its the first item on the submenu. Go up to get to English.

4 out of 5 eggsNot for Gaming

Pros: Great color, easy menu, comes with drivers for windows, Very sturdy on the stand. Clean front unit.

Cons: Not as good for gaming, Little lag on high graphics with first person games. When I start my system my icons reset to upper left side of screen.

Other Thoughts: I think if you want a nice monitor for photoshop, vidio editing or spreed sheet. With the high res you can get so much more on the screen at one time. I gave it 4 stars and not less because the monitor is nice other than gaming first person. I think a faster refresh would of been a better choice. maybe a 144hz.

5 out of 5 eggsNot Disappointed

Pros: Everything is so clear. You have never seen text so clear... nor tiny. You will need to increase the font size in your OS unless you have the vision of a hawk and/or sit less than 3 feet from the monitor.

Comics look amazing on this monitor. Anything drawn or animated at a high resolution is just gorgeous. You'll never want to watch or read anything on 1080p again.

If you have a beefy enough video card, you don't really need anti-aliasing when running at the native resolution. There are still some jaggies depending on the game, but they are tolerable. When playing older games that use the Unreal 3 engine, everything looks like plastic toys which is interesting.

Cons: No VESA mount and a wobbly stand, as everyone has said.

I've noticed screen tearing in some games even when using vsync which was not an issue on my old monitor.

When watching Netflix through a browser, it looks absolutely terrible. This is most likely because my ISP is throttling Netflix for not paying them, so the automatic quality settings for Netflix keep the resolution low to prevent buffering. This is a con for any 4k display, but is the fault of the ISP. You should be aware of it if your ISP is not Comcast. Tell the FCC that you support Net Neutrality and that content providers having to pay for bandwidth should be illegal!

1920x1080 resolution does not look good on this monitor. The brightness and contrast are much higher than whatever you have set at the native resolution. This display does not support specific settings for each resolution, so if you insist on running a game in 1080p, you have to adjust the brightness and contrast down every time the resolution switches or find some software solution for this issue. My recommendation is to use the 2560x1440 resolution. There is almost no degradation of picture quality at this resolution. In fact, at 2560x1440 it still looks better than the 1080p monitor the UD590 replaced.

When testing some 4k video content, specifically the Big Buck Bunny 4k animated short, I noticed minor color banding in certain scenes. I don't know if this is a limitation of the video or of the TN panel. The banding was only noticeable up close (within 3 feet of the monitor.

Other Thoughts: Google "Big Buck Bunny 4k" to get a torrent download link for a short animated film in native 4k resolution @60fps. I used VLC to play the file. It is absolutely stunning.


To people complaining about the power button. The behavior of the power light seems to be reversed on this monitor which might lead the user to think they can't turn on or off the monitor. In the OSD, the power LED behavior can be changed to act as you would expect.

I ended up setting the brightness to 35 and the contrast to 60.

5 out of 5 eggsThe future called, they want their monitor back.

Pros: Beautiful large monitor, crisp colors and excellent overall image quality. Much has been said about the poor monitor stand but I don't really have a problem with it. It sits stationary on a relatively sturdy desk.

Cons: It doesn't make me breakfast in the morning.

Other Thoughts: Here's my $0.02 from a guy who just bought this monitor. I just got it last week so my time with it hasn't been extensive yet. Having said that, you will probably not have any problems with 4K with your graphic card if it's a fairly modern mid-high range card. My rig specs are as follows, an i7-930 CPU @ 3.0ghz, 12 gb ddr3 RAM @ 1680mhz, 780ti GPU. At 4k I turn off all AA effects because they suck performance and the pixel density is already so high that I cannot see any jaggies, maybe true technophiles would see something. The games that I've run in 4k are:

Splinter Cell Blacklist - this game has a weird issue where it always starts windowed mode, but you can change it back to native quickly. I'm running 4k with texture and shadows set to high and everything else maxed out. It maintains a solid 60 fps with vsync turned on with very few dips at all. If I want to turn everything up to max it can maintain 30-45 fps, which is playable but not really acceptable for most PC gamers. If I bump the resolution down to 2560 x 1440 (which is still gorgeous on this display, but not THE VERY BEST) it holds 60 fps with all settings maxed no sweat.

Spintires - this game is ridiculously well optimized for PC, solid 60 FPS at all times, never a single hiccup. All settings maxed out.

Max Payne 3 - All settings completely maxed (aside from AA) and it holds 60-75 fps no problem in 4k.

BF4 - still working to find the sweet spot here. I have all settings turned to high if I run 4k and it seems to do 60-75 fps with drops down into the 30s if a ton of action is going on. I can run 1440p maxed out and maintain 60-75 at all times.

I'll tell you more if there's any interest. 4k is awesome in my opinion, but I have a long history of being an early adopter (looking at you HD DVD... sobs it was supposed to be the future man). I love having so much desktop space but be advised that some fonts look like they're meant for ants, and some programs are clearly not designed with 4k in mind and it messes up the formatting (FRAPS for example, it looks like you're trying to run a modern website on IE6 or something).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor and great deal

Pros: 4K, 28" with both HDMI and DisplayPort for a remarkably low price.

Cons: Disappointing stand for a monitor of this caliber. No adjustment, let along pivot/rotate.

Other Thoughts: worked instantly and perfectly right out of the box on both my Windows Vaio 13" laptop via HDMI and my Macbook Pro via DisplayPort, both a full 4K resolution.

No adjustment or fiddling needed for either. Impressive number of pixels for my use in development, graphics, documentation, presentations, and all else benefiting from lots of windows filled with stuff.

Only used it for 4 hours so far, but suitably impressed to write the review.

Manufacturer Response:

bernhtp:

Thank you for purchasing the Samsung U28D590D.

Please know that this monitor does indeed tilt. It has a tilt range of -1° (±2.0°) ~ 15° (±2.0°), as shown in the User Manual.

Place the monitor on a flat sturdy surface, hold the base down firmly with one hand, grasp the top center of the bezel with your other hand and push firmly and gently back. This should tilt the monitor screen back. To tilt the monitor down, just push the bottom of the bezel gently and firmly back while pulling the top of the bezel towards you.

For further assistance, please contact Samsung Customer Support toll-free at 1-800-SAMSUNG.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap but you need whaaa...

Pros: Beautiful screen and modern design with a nice price.

It supports lower resolutions.

Cons: A little shake of the desk and it wobbles. When it comes to reviewing products I can be pretty violent so my monitor shakes a bit.

Nvidia says I need an SLI 780 or 780Ti rig to play ultra settings on 4K monitors. Let me just pull $1,000.00 out of the air for this monitor. I should have put more thought into this but I'm ready for the future.

Other Thoughts: The option to wall mount would have been nice.

A quicker option to turn off the monitor because it goes to "stand by" mode so quick I don't have enough time to shut it off. I would need to wait 5 seconds for it to come off stand by and then choose off.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Deal

Pros: -4k resolution
-great picture quality
- good design
- low price
- no problems

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I had it ordered and delivered from MNW Global.
Delivery was fast and packaging was simple but robust and adequate.
-stand is not that bad
- manual is on CD, throw away Korean printings
- after connected to a PC it is easy to change the menu language to almost any other language there is: searching takes 5 minutes max
-the Korean plug and cable is easily replaced by a US one.

I would buy the same monitor the same way I did again: there is no real problem unless you chose to whine.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Product, but 4k Has a Ways to Go...

Pros: Very solid monitor. Has very vibrant colors for a TFT, and very good response times for gaming. 4K looks absolutely amazing. No dead pixels.

Cons: I have XFX 290xs in Crossfire, and there are just too many issues with 4k for me to stomach. Scaling of text/graphic size in Windows is awful, and it is a huge pain getting things to look even remotely consistent. Likewise, various games have issues with scaling text/graphics/huds, and it is very annoying.

Additionally, there is an issue with the screen flickering off for a second or two as if the monitor has been disconnected. I've done a lot of research and it is either an issue with the Display Adapter or AMD video cards (I'm leaning towards AMD cards). I do not want to wait around for AMD to fix this issue, or have to spend $40 on a new cable if that is the issue.

Also, as many others have stated, the monitor stand is terrible. I can't imagine it would have cost them much more at all to include a stand that was adjustable. I mean, if you're going to spend $600 on a monitor, I think you're willing to spend an extra $10-15 for a stand that is adjustable.

1 out of 5 eggsSimply not working

Pros: N/A

Cons: The unit powered up (the indicator LED blinked) but the screen stayed black. The monitor was tried on two identical, separate systems (Dell M6500 with AMD FirePro M7820 video card) that are known to support 4K resolution and currently drive another 4K monitor (Seiki SE39UY04) without any problems. The OS (Win 7 Ultimate) recognized the monitor and showed its specs but with all the configuration options grayed out. The conclusion: either, the unit was defective, or there is a compatibility issue on the monitor side.

4 out of 5 eggsClear as can be.

Pros: 3840 x 2160 resolution, I mean you can see everything so clearly without any pixilation. Characters on the screen are crisp and bright, pictures blow you away, and fast action video is smooth with no jumping or smearing. Price 599.00 is a great deal.

Cons: Here is were the one star comes off. Because it doesn't have a vesa mount on the back doesn't give Samsung a pass on making a cheap stand. The monitor is now 45 days old and if you bump the sides it wobbles like a weeble. Not cool for any monitor. Viewing angle left to right is poor as others have stated but using this as a TV is not the point, its a monitor and you sit in front of it. The lack of a significant tilt is not as bad for me. Right now I am leaning back in my chair and the view is almost a clear as sitting straight up in front of the monitor. Last con and not sure who's fault this is but Windows 8.1 screen saver blanking function does not always awaken the screen, making me have to unplug the power cord and plug back in. Again not sure if this is software or hardware related.

Other Thoughts: Stand and screen saver issues aside this is a great leap in screen resolution technology. For me it reminds me of going from my TRS80 Model 1 monitor to my first 19" LCD screen, just a huge jump. You have to use the Display port to get full resolution and function, I tried the DVI route for all of one second and realized all the cables and **** wasn't going to cut it. Personally if they fixed the stand and a little more tilt built in they could raise the price 50.00 and have the killer 4k monitor.
