I saw it uses a TN panel, so I guess no... it will have normal fps rate


būūt... TN? I'll pass, I am no pro gamer, and i like good color, contrast reproduction...

According to the 'Q&A' on the Amazon listing "DisplayPort 1.2 : 60Hz HDMI 1.4 : 30Hz"
The question is how. Does the LCD controller support really HBR2 or it cheats again using multi transport...

http://us.hardware.info/reviews/5269/samsung-lu28d590d-review-4k-becomes-affordable

They seem pretty happy with it.

I'd like a second DP port (my laptop only has DP and VGA, no HDMI), but since I can't go out the buy one right now, no matter. There will be other models out when I can afford a 4K monitor.
I read that review a while ago, I think they cited an ~$830 USD price and I thought it was reasonable enough to go for it. ~$699 is so much better for a 28" 4K monitor that can do 60Hz. I know its TN but from what I have heard its one of the better TN panels so I would be willing to give it a shot.

I really don't much care for the stand styling but that's just superficial stuff. I also don't much care for the fact that there is no way to mount the monitor on a different stand like a dual or triple monitor stand,..... which is a functionality issue.

Still, I might give this one a shot,...

Wait,....

Are we sure this is the same model,....?

The review I read was for the Samsung LU28D590D but the one listed here is the Samsung U28D590D

it seems it has a proper controller at last and no dual monitor wizardry....
I still have a little bit of doubt. Wouldn't they make a big deal out of it because it allows people to use it without any multi-monitor shenanigans??

Edit: PCPer says it's (most probably) MST.

It's the U28D590D. Hardware.info has it wrong.

"The UD590 supports one billion colors, which is 64 times more colors than offered by conventional monitors, displaying images in lifelike quality. With one millisecond response time, users can enjoy smooth video playback of even the fastest moving action scenes."

Something doesn't look right here. If the monitor is capable of supporting 64 times more colors than a typical 4K monitor then wouldn't it require 64 times more bandwidth from the DisplayPort 1.2 cable? I didn't thing DP 1.2 was capable of that kind of bandwidth. :confused:

Edit: ugh, apparently it uses dithering to reach 1 billion colors, so it's not a "true" color count anyways.
It actually is 10bit per channel... ie 30bpp, and actually there are panels capable to do so. Actually DP1.2 is capable 4K@60hz@30bpp max, and nothing more. They are just advertising the LCD panel controller capabilities, not the panel itself. The Sammys homepage about the panel just spouts rainbows and unicorns and offers wonders like in a Christian church, so just take it all with a grain of salt.

Who cares? 24bit is more than enough for the human eye. You wont distinguish more than 10 million colors anyways. ;)

Interesting promotional pictures.

Why do you need 4K to see a line drawing?

probably wants to give the message that this monitor is suitable for design professionals. At higher resolutions, lines are less jagged/stair cased and just looks better overall. I currently model and CAD on a 2560x1600 30" monitor and it looks way better than on my 23" 1080p or 24" 1200p screen.

I don't know if this was posted in the other articles, but I assume it is this panel:

http://www.panelook.com/modeldetail.php?id=20029

I personally have a major aversion to (most) Chimei Innolux panels, but hey...cheap is good, and if it works for your needs, great.

I like the fact that a trend has kind of started to emerge for pricing, and it isn't supremely terrible. $700-800 for 28'' models goes pretty well hand-in-hand with $1400 for the 55'' vizio (va) p (or) series msrp. Granted both are relatively budget panels, but I think this is a price palatable to many consumers and sets a reasonable baseline as trickle-down starts to happen over the coming years.

I guess the question becomes how long until korean/chinese companies start making monitors/tvs with higher-end features/panels than (many of) these lower-end models but then compete with them on price. I imagine not very long...

We're getting there. :)

Indeed,.......

I known many have an aversion to TN panels but I have heard these are better then what some are used to seeing. still, color shift and other issues will still be there. I suspect this will b a fairly good experience anyway.

Personally I would like to see the industry start putting out 30", 32" and 40" panels of this type.

Yeah. It's not just color shift because of the viewing angle of tn though, it's also Chimei and their inability to get any key factor right without sacrificing everything else, which is true for most of their VA products as well. You want response time? Viewing angle, refresh rate, contrast...all completely terrible for that 1.5ms response time. I understand there are trade-offs both from different panel tech and their different implementations, and maybe it makes sense if you sit square in front of said screen at all times, sit in pitch black (although 300 cd/m2 aint great either when you start parshing out what that means for decent color/contrast), only plan on using 4k/60, etc.
'
AUO and Sharp seem to be on the right track for striking a balance with VA, and I'm sure at some point someone will do something impressive with full-array ips/pls. The auo/sharps are all pretty close to a decent 1080p panel spec, even at the bottom. 5.5-6.5ms response times (some are 4ms... but those are ridiculously expensive so 240hz 1080p compatibility might be a pipe-dream for a while on consumer 4k), but also 120hz panels accordingly, while keeping decent (obviously not great) viewing angles and contrast for a given brightness level (which matches to the increase brightness and back-light scanning the industry seems headed in). There is a lot of things you can do with hdmi 2.0 bandwidth (from color space, refresh, and resolution) and that innolux spec puts the kobash on anything outside 10-bit/4k/60. I won't meander on about 1080p-4k rez at 60-240hz with at least 10-bit and the possibility of nice adjustments between 4:2:0-4:4:4 again, but the fact remains that will be a thing...sharp and auo seem to be on that path (with at least 1080p 120hz capability) while this tn spec is pretty awful.


As for sizes, I think 64.5 inch tvs will be cut down to monitors in relatively short order, if they are not already. Without a doubt they seem to be the most abundant 4k size. The same obviously goes for 55 (chimei/auo), 60/70/80 (sharp), 58/79 (innlux) and maybe, if we're lucky, LG's 84. That should give us roughly 27, 30-32, and ~40 models. My God, I couldn't even imagine sitting 3 feet from a forty-inch monitor!

(OK, I could, but still...damn.)

I’m looking for some clarification on the above article. Basically there are some pre-orders on Amazon now and Newegg seems to have a Samsung
UD590 4K class monitor for sale now for $859 USD:

SAMSUNG UD590 Series U28D590D Black 28" 1ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor TN Panel300 cd/m2 1000:1

The Hardware.info article in contrast cited an $830 USD price:

http://us.hardware.info/reviews/5269/samsung-lu28d590d-review-4k-becomes-affordable

which isn’t too far off the Newegg price. However, the Amazon preorder now starts at $795.95 with free shipping and that was lowered since Amazon pre-orders started at about ~$840 not too long ago. Amazon has the following disclaimer up:

Due to limited supply, this product is no longer available for preorder by Amazon.com. Anticipated release of this product from Amazon.com is April 18, 2014.
So naturally my question is about the cited price of $699.99 in this article. Is the $699.99 price listed here the actual MSRP and all others are simply inflating the price or was the $699.99 price an error?

If its simply an inflated money grabbing tactic for early buyers I guess I can wait a bit longer. Maybe the price will drop to or near ~699.99 on or after the 18 th if that is in fact the MSRP,….?
