Prepare yourself for an eye opening experience
The Samsung UHD monitor offers PC viewing, gaming and more with Ultra HD picture quality. A resolution 4 times higher than Full HD and an incredible 1 billion colors bring images to life with unparalleled realism. A superfast 1-millisecond response time handles even the fastest moving scenes in movies and games, and great connectivity and Game Mode mean it’s equipped for a rich gaming experience. You can do more with multi-linking features like PIP 2.0 and PBP that keep the original source resolution. Thanks to elegant minimal design, there’s nothing to distract you from amazing viewing.

Discover the detail of stunningly realistic UHD picture quality
You’ve never seen a picture this realistic before. Your UHD monitor has an ultra-high resolution that’s 4 times greater than Full HD, delivering stunning images that use a staggering 8 million pixels. With the highest brightness level of 370 cd/㎡, it’s also more vivid and brilliantly clear. See your 4K content the way it was meant to be seen, with a new level of lifelike detail that makes you feel like you’re really there. Experience the realism of glorious Ultra High Definition.

World best-in-class fast response time at 1ms!
Your Samsung UHD monitor can handle all the excitement of action movies, games and sports easily thanks to a faster response time of 1-millisecond. You can see even the fastest on-screen motion clearly and smoothly without any motion blur, judder or ghosting. There's no lag during gaming, so it won't let you down at a crucial moment. All the details are right there before your eyes in astonishing UHD clarity and realism.

Each and every color richly detailed and truly brilliant
Get richer and more vivid colors that were meant to be seen in 4K. Many monitors only offer you 16.7 million colors, but a Samsung UHD monitor gives you 64 times more - for an incredible 1 billion colors. That means everything you see is accurate, detailed, natural-looking and so vivid that it will take your breath away. There's also a smoother transition between different tones, passing through more shades in between. Let the UHD monitor show you everything that there is to be seen.

Sharpen your content with UHD upscaling
Bring out the best picture quality possible for all your favorite content and make them worthy of your UHD experience. Samsung's technology automatically detects the content's original resolution and improves it with noise reduction and up-conversion to create clearer, sharper images. Thanks to UHD upscaling, it brings all your entertainment and other content up to a new UHD-level.

Multi-task and watch everything in its true glory
The latest Picture-in-Picture 2.0 technology lets you multi-task and watch videos that maintain 100% of the source resolution. Whether it's 1080p ,720p or 480p, PIP 2.0 doesn't downscale contents and maintains the exact same resolution as clear and crisp on its own. It supports resolutions up to Full HD and you can adjust the PIP resolution and position to fit your needs. There's no loss in quality, so you can really have everything you want with no compromises.

Use only one UHD monitor to see 2 different contents
This advanced multitasking technology lets you do things you could never do before. With Picture-by-Picture, you can connect two PCs to the same monitor and see the desktops of both simultaneously on one screen that's divided into two. Thanks to PBP and the UHD resolution size you won't have to worry about losing any of the glorious picture quality and resolution. Plug in your laptop and your desktop and use both easily without needing to keep looking between different monitors - it's all there at a glance.

Enhance your gaming experience with just one button
Get perfect viewing for games with just one touch of a button. Game Mode adjusts your monitor's settings instantly to give you an optimized gaming experience. Game Mode smartly detects the changes in scenes, enhances the color and alters the screen's contrast to make dark spots darker and light spots lighter so you can see all the action at all times. There is less lag thanks to a faster video response time that ensures that the picture keeps up with action and won't let you down.

Versatile connectivity for all your UHD-compatible devices
Your Samsung UHD monitor is perfect for your game consoles as well as your PC. Thanks to 2 HDMI ports, both your computer and your console can be connected simultaneously, so you don't have to unplug and plug in each time when you want to switch between them. That means less hassle and more time for entertainment. Thanks to DisplayPort connectivity, your monitor is also ready to connect to UHD-compatible devices and content.

*Supports HDMI 1.4 (3840x2160, 30Hz) and Display Port 1.2 (3840x2160, 60Hz) Minimal design puts immersive UHD viewing at the forefront
A beautiful UHD picture should be the center of attention, and Samsung's sophisticated minimalist design makes sure it is. With clean lines and a modern look, the sleek Samsung UHD monitor is constructed from high-quality metal materials and has an understated T-shape body that make the picture even more prominent. The tilt function lets you adjust the monitor to the most comfortable level, and it's designed to take up less space, giving minimal distraction for maximum viewing.

The U28D590D (which I'm going to call the 590D from now on) is incredibly easy to set up. The stand is solid and takes up very little space on the desk. You’ll find it a little wobbly if you have a tendency to prod at your monitor, but seems stable.

You can tilt the screen up and down through about 15 degrees but there’s no horizontal rotation except by moving the entire base. You won’t be able to raise or lower the monitor on its stand, nor turn it to portait orientation. There are also no VESA mount holes, so you’ll have to hack together your own solution if you were hoping to wall-mount or use a monitor arm. The screen itself is great non-reflective matte surface.

The monitor comes with a HDMI and a DisplayPort cable. You’ll need to use the DisplayPort if you want to hit the max of 60fps gaming as it uses HDMI 1.4, which is limited to 30Hz (i.e. 30fps)

I did notice a small bit of backlight bleeding at the bottom of the panel. Not enough to annoy me but definitely present. Happily, there are no dead pixels.

For a TN, rather than IPS panel, the colour reproduction is pretty good. Purists will notice a bit of colour distortion around the edges or when you lean left or right. For general gaming, that's perfectly acceptable at this price.

I've not found a good use for the Samsung MagicBright or MagicAngle features.

Most Windows software isn't ready for 4k just yet. Windows itself does a pretty good job of scaling up explorer windows, folders and text but I found plenty of software that won’t go above its 1080p scale, so I have really squint at the monitor to read their text.

Games themselves, however, tend to play quite well. Metro: Last Light, Crysis 3, Sniper Elite 3 and The Witcher 2 all worked fine at 4k.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great 3 Jun 2014
I have owned this monitor for about 3 months having bought it from Korea (identical product, different plug).

You will notice when you get the monitor that you appear to have a lot more screen space to work with. Icons become very small, text is small and clear. One issue I have found is that text in some programmes can be too small. Because not everything (or very much) is optimised for 4k the text in a programme may become 1/4 of it's intended size. For most things you can zoom or chance the text size in windows settings.

You should remember when buying this that it is a TN monitor. It'll be quite a clear chance if you've been using IPS / PLS for the last few years. You have to make sure the monitor is angled correctly to avoid colour shift but the 1ms response time is good. I don't know if that's completely accurate but it does feel faster than my previous Samsung PLS monitor.

With regards to graphical power, it is useable at this time without too much need for change. I have an AMD 7580 (costs about 150) and it can just about do the job. Where as I used to run everything on high to ultra I now run it on mid with no AA etc and there has been a big drop in frame rates but it's still ok for games. I'd suggest if you were to build a new machine or upgrade your graphics card you should be ok with about a 200 card.

There are a few issues with this monitor. Sometimes I cannot turn it on and need to unplug it for a few seconds and plug it back in to make it work. Also it will sometimes start up and run in HD or 1440p but this may be more of an issue with my graphics card / DP drivers.

4k video looks good but there is very little content currently.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome colour range 22 July 2014
Unbelievable monitor!
Awesome colour range, intense response time, Incredible fidelity!
For normal PC use it has little quirks, i.e. slightly blurry text on some programs that don't support 4k scaling. However when gaming, and you have the grunt to run 4k, It's truly ridiculous to have that much fidelity! Very little need for any intense AA.
Also games that run in 1080p still look great, no difference to looking at a normal monitor!
Highly recommended!!
Hint: turn response time to "Normal" not "Fastest" as the latter leaves big black borders around moving images in games

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultra-HD... Ultra-Impressed 28 July 2014
Out of the box was quite taken back at the slickness and unassumingness of the monitor. This is quite the upgrade from my previous screen and was impressed before I even switched it on!

Some of the number are a bit over my head, a billion this, a million that... all I know is this is by far the best monitor I have seen!! Was looking for something I can multi-task on and watch and edit high quality film. This is perfect. I'm amazed at getting the 4K Ultra-HD experience right on my desktop.

Things to note:

1. The monitor provides a multi task function where you can view 2 HDMI inputs without any loss of resolution; a multi-tasking miracle I say...! Really neat feature that really won me over.
2. The UHD provides a seamless gaming performance, with an instant screen refresh with no visible pauses to the naked eye. Your gaming experience will really be notched up a level!
3. If you are hoping to enjoy the UHD 4K experience, you will not be disappointed – the upscale performance is perfect. Can't wait for 4K video to become more popular, really feel I have a future-proof screen here. Although, remember this is not a TV and therefore you will be required to plug in your own speakers.

Having played around with Windows 8 for a while the only improvement I could ask for is a touchscreen version!!
Brilliant product. Well done Samsung!
