Samsung U28D590D 28-Inch 4K Display Now $599Thu, May 15, 2014 - 9:59 AM
The Samsung U28D590D 28-inch Ultra HD display first started being sold by retailers in March for $699. This monitor quickly gained notoriety due to the fact that it was one of the very first 4K displays to market with a TN panel that is capable of a 60 Hz refresh rate with a single-stream transport (DisplayPort) at 3840 x 2160. This means that the monitor is detected as a single panel when used with the DisplayPort interface. The display boasts 170°/160° viewing angles, 10-bit color, LED backlighting, 370 cd/m² brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio and a one-millisecond gray-to-gray response time. Not bad for those that aren’t on the IPS bandwagon. What could make this $699 monitor better? How about a $100 price cut after being available for purchase for less than two months? Amazon currently has this monitor available for $599.99 with free shipping. Around a 15% price cut isn’t bad and if you wanted to get into 4K gaming without breaking the bank this monitor will do the trick.
