Product Description

Discover the detail of stunningly realistic UHD picture quality

The Samsung UE590 UHD monitor offers PC viewing,gaming and more, all in stunning Ultra HD picture quality. Superb images that boast a staggering 8 million pixels are delivered at a resolution 4x greater than Full HD.
See your 4K content the way it was meant to be seen, with realistic detail that makes you feel like you’re really there.
Experience a new level of clarity in Ultra High Definition.

Take your entertainment to new heights of immersion and comfort

• AMD FreeSync: Dynamically syncs the screen refresh rate with the frame rate of your content to minimize input latency and dramatically reduce image tearing and stutter during gaming.
• Upgraded HDMI Support: With an upgraded HDMI that supports UHD resolutions at a 60Hz refresh rate, 4K content plays smoothly without delay, even when connected to AV devices.
• Game Mode: Instantly adjust your monitor settings for an optimized gaming experience through the on-screen display. Game Mode improves the darkness of the picture so that you can see all the action vividly.
• Fast 1ms Response Time: See even the fastest on-screen motion clearly without any motion blur, judder or ghosting.

Experience unbeatable picture quality with razor sharp resolution and billions of colors

• 1 Billion Colors: With 64 times more colors than conventional monitors, images are so detailed, accurate and natural that they will take your breath away.
• Highest Brightness Level: With the highest brightness level of 370 cd/㎡, the picture quality is more vivid and brilliantly clear

Powerful multitasking features for maximum productivity

• PBP: Picture-by-Picture lets you view 2 different input sources on one screen while maintaining the picture quality of the original source.
• PIP 2.0: Multitask while you watch a variety of content, thanks to support for even more inputs with Picture-in-Picture 2.0. Resize the second picture to cover up to 25% of the screen and position it anywhere you please, and even control the sound settings with ease

Sophisticated design in matte black & T-shaped stand with a metallic touch

It comes with a stunning matte black body framed perfectly by a narrow bezel with a metallic rim, elevated by a T-shaped stand with a matching metallic touch.
• VESA Support: With support for VESA 75 X 75, you can easily mount it on any wall.
• Tilt: Easily and smoothly tilt the screen forward 20° and backwards 2° for comfortable viewing.

Easy on the eyes for a more comfortable viewing experience

• Eye Saver Mode: Unlike other colors emitted from screens, blue light wavelengths have a more stimulating effect on the retina, causing eye fatigue. Eye Saver Mode optimizes your viewing comfort by smartly reducing blue light emissions at the touch of a button
. • Flicker Free: Flicker Free technology reduces screen flickering for a more comfortable viewing experience

Hi
With Free Sync being AMD https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FreeSync
and RX 480 graphic card being AMD all should be good.
What makes you think otherwise.

Wonderful picture quality for a great price
Bought for my gaming PC - as a high end build I was at the end of my budget but managed to gather a bit more for this and haven't been disappointed.
The picture has all the clarity you'd expect from a UHS monitor- bright, vivid colour displays really bring my favourite games to life.

The 'Pro" is 4K-upscaled experiences this is a 4K monitor

Just make sure you're connecting it via HDMI2, as HDMI1 will not support 4K.

not sure what you are trying to say here? Im pretty sure with a suitable GPU gaming does look great in full screen. Even if you play 1080p res on it it will look crisp but it will be in a window 1/4th of the screen. If you intend to play games on a 4K screen in native res you have to invest in a decent GPU, you will probably be able to get away with a mid range GPU with settings turned down, but whats the point of 4k only to turn down the quality in games.

Urm. No that's not generally how it works. Most displays have a scaler in them that can take for instance a 1920x1080 source and upscale it to 3840x2160. Heck even if they didn't, computers tend to be fine creating a small image and stretching it over a large area (doing the scaling on the PC itself, not the monitor). Have a go, try changing your display settings so your PC is outputting an image of a lower resolution than your monitor's native one.

This is incidentally why with a fresh windows installation and no drivers you get that "bleugh" moment where your big monitor is displaying in fullscreen an 800x600 image that windows thinks is a safe default resolution.

But that's not 4k gaming, that's 1080 stretched to 4k.

But you said gaming at 1080 on this monitor would use 25% of the screen therefore 75% of the screen would be wasted space.
There is no way folks would be giving this monitor a 5 star gaming review based on what you stated.
n.b. these are Amazon Verified Purchase reviews both from 2016.
That is what I was "trying to say here''.

But the point is you don't end up with wasted space, or playing in a tiny section of the screen that's actually displaying your content. The content is stretched to fill the entire screen.

Let's take an older example. DVDs are 720x480. I'm willing to bet you've played a DVD on a computer with 1080p display (or at least higher than 720x480). Was it an absolutely miserable experience that used a tiny chunk of your display? Or was the small source image stretched so that it used the entire display? Hint, it's the second one. Also the first solution is stupid.

I have this monitor for my ps4 pro and it works great. However, bear in mind that it doesn't support HDCP 2.2, which means you cannot get Netflix to run in full 4k mode, very annoying. Also bear in mind it has no speakers, and that you'll need to use HDMI port 2 to get full 4k/60hz mode. Hope that helps.

If 4k netflix and amazon prime video is important then using a Triax 22 converter it will do 4k
I believe this is the item:
http://www.satelliteandaerialsupplies.com/product/?s=triax-310054-thc22-hdmi-4k-hdcp-22-to-14-converter

The monitor requires external speakers.
I think a lot of monitors dont have built in speakers.

As mentioned previously PS4 Pro users need to make sure they are connecting it via HDMI2, as HDMI1 will not support 4K.

I cant really answer that as I have had my eye on the 24" for a while.
I dont think you need to rush at the £340.00 price with Black Friday days away.

It appears it will stay around this price now so I would take a step back and see what Friday brings

Hot. I bought the 28" direct from Samsung shop last month - but it went back as there was a cluster of dead pixels in the lower left hand side of the screen.

For this reason (risk) I won't order from the Bora seller. I didn't realise Amazon had a prime option (it doesn't appear when looking at the Bora one).

So is the difference major between 4K non HDR vs 4K HDR on a monitor?

HDR monitors are future proofed but you may have to wait a while AND spend a LOT more.
For most folk this monitor is outstanding value for money.

Hot. I bought the 28" direct from Samsung shop last month - but it went back as there was a cluster of dead pixels in the lower left hand side of the screen.
For this reason (risk) I won't order from the Bora seller. I didn't realise Amazon had a prime option (it doesn't appear when looking at the Bora one).

Hi
For the 28" :

have been comparing these two on the Samsung website, looks like the 24 is pls, 4ms gtg, 16.7 million colours and quite low brightness. the 28 is tn, however 1ms gtg, 1 billion colours but at the cost of lesser off angle viewing that the pls screen gives. It's a real tough call ! Both monitors seem to be reviewed closely at 4k.com

Hi
Thanks for taking the time to research.
For folks just picking up on the thread @rvelvick means the 24" v 28"
I guess price difference will be a factor for some, also the 28" is a beast size wise!

I'd be interested in knowing how much the extra colour matters in these examples. I'm really tempted to pay the extra simply because 4k on a 28inch will imo allow you to appreciate it more plus the extra colour/brightness that the bigger screen has to offer. I am going to wait until Friday either way, not long now !

One of the issues I have with the Samsung 4K monitor is the lack of a USB hub and multiple viewing angles. I'm comparing this to the similarly priced Dell P2415Q that can be rotated to portrait mode for reading long documents/eBooks/PDFs of textbooks. The Dell monitor is also said have a better build quality and the USB hub.

You can find reviews of people having dead-on-arrival/dead-pixel issues with both so that evens them out. Both also lack HDCP 2.2 which is apparently a requirement for watching 4K content via Amazon Prime/Netflix.

I'm a university student so ideally want something that it multipurpose for both work and gaming so that sort of boils down to the whole TN vs IPS debate again. Any thoughts anyone?

Hi
There are ways around the HDCP 2.2 issue, please see posts above.
Any dead pixels the monitor gets returned there is a pixel checker - 4 or 5 coloured screens - I'll be testing my monitor recommend everyone does this....
Will report back.
The price of approx £270 may not last.
