Samsung 28" U28D590D Monitor

PostTue Oct 03, 2017 7:29 pm

Hi. Does anybody here have experience with the U28D590D from Samsung?
Im looking for a cheap 4K screen and looking for "ok" color accuracy.
I know its not a 10bit screen, but was hopping for some input from people on here.

It's a TN display (bad viewing angles) and doesn't cover srgb 100%.

Save a little longer and get something more along these lines.

Aha. THANX Dan.
OK. will stay away from TN.
I guess i might even get a non 4K that covers 100% srgb.

I have 2 of these in my home office, and they are perfectly fine. I baught them when they first came out, but they are dirt cheap now.

To me the 4k monitor market is a mess, as manufactures have too many irons in the fire. They are working on fps, proper hdr, half baked hdr, and all kinds of gamuts. Hopefully in another year or two when gamer demand for high fps, and the hdr format war settles, we will see pro and semi pro 4k monitors at a realistic price.

After looking into reviews I also ended up with the BenQ 2711u for just 338$
Thanx for the recommendation Dan!

Refurbished on EBAY:

In case anybody else is looking for deals on this monitor.

Hope its good.

Now i just have to add another 300$ for customs and shipping to Bolivia :(
I live there since 2012 and usually fly to the U.S. once a year to upgrade camera gear, but wouldn't be able to get a 27inch screen through customs without them noticing.

So 600$ instead of 338
