2 out of 5 eggsUpdate on my UHD (After 3 months)

Pros: The picture is still great.

Cons: I have owned this device for almost three months now and this is the problems I have been having.

Gaming or plain browsing the web there is slight screen tearing in the middle at random moments. Not often but when it happens I notice it.

The monitor just stops working (black screen) sometimes and I need to unplug it and plug it back in for it to turn back on.

Other Thoughts: The last update from Samsung was in February. I hope the next update fixes my problems.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice!

Pros: 4K
1 billion colors
1ms response time

Cons: TN panel

Other Thoughts: This monitor came perfectly calibrated out of the box. I didn't have to adjust any settings. It does sit a bit higher than my previous monitor (23" Samsung), so I do have to sit up straight so I can hit the TN panel head on for maximum colors. I like it because it promotes good posture.

The TN panel has pretty good viewing angles otherwise, except from the bottom.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 4K for a reasonable price, nice looking, good picture.

Cons: No speakers, flimsy stand.

Other Thoughts: 4K for this price really can't be beat.

However after having this monitor for about 1 1/2 months I already have a dead pixel in the top left of the screen. It's not terribly noticeable except when you have a white or light colored background. I have not yet contacted Samsung customer service since I am outside of the 30 day Newegg policy.

I may have just gotten an unlucky unit and besides the pixel I love the monitor.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price value ratio for a 4K display capable of 60Hz. Bought this over the Dell specifically because it was 60Hz and not much more $$$.

Cons: Yes, the stand isn't the most rock solid. But if the display is sitting on a solid desk then it's more than adequate. I wouldn't use this display on a flimsy desk or one on rollers.

Other Thoughts: Haven't used it yet for photo editing, so feedback on intended use is still out.

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:


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.
