What customers say about "Key Specs"
Samsung U28E590D UHD LED-Lit Monitor
  • Fantastic picture and resolution. Great refresh rate, works very well for my gaming needs
  • This new one can handle any level of resolution I want to push from my machine and has an incredible refresh rate for gaming. Highly recommend, especially at the price.
  • This monitor is very fast and has no delay time and has very good lighting
  • This Monior is fantastic. It has a great picture, FPS is superb, and the attention to details in gaming as well as other tasks looks superb. Highly recommend.
  • This monitor is all that the marketing propaganda says that it will be. Crystal clear image and decent refresh rate.
  • The Samsung U28E590D delivers great picture at this resolution, but I am returning it for ergonomic reasons and will find a better deal for 2K screen.
ASUS MG28UQ FreeSync 4k Gaming Monitor
  • I picked it up for my new Xbox X. I am loving it. Perfect for 4K gaming off a console. If you are looking for a top tier monitor for pc you would want to look around. But if you are wanting a great monitor for 4K gaming console, then you can’t go wrong with this one.
  • I have had a 4K monitor before and I can honestly say this blew me away. Absolutely gorgeous, super dark blacks, great color, nice adjustable stand well built, this made playing FPS like pubg/CS:GO feel like I’m cheating haha...
  • Amazing monitor. Great 4K display using my GTX 1070. Perfect size for a hutch or a desk that doesn't have a lot of room.
  • Got this as kind of an entry level gaming monitor, I am blown away by it. 4k at 60 FPS via hdmi 2.0 and DP is outstanding! I use this with the PS4 Pro and it works very well!
  • The highest setting (4k) looks so amazing when you have a really large picture. So much detail and vivid colors. I didn't realize pictures could look that good. In lower resolutions, it's fine too. But, different aspect ratios, as you would expect.

What customers say about "Display"
Samsung U28E590D UHD LED-Lit Monitor
  • I am a designer and require my monitor to be able to handle color effectively. This monitor is outstanding in low light conditions and renders text and graphics so crisply. Highly recommend!
  • I was looking for a new monitor for an extension to my laptop computer. I am a computer autocad designer and I spend a lot of time looking into monitors. This monitor is very easy on my eyes and is very well defined with the picture quality.
  • The image on this monitor is super crisp. I use it for both work and gaming. Spreadsheets look great and games look awesome.
  • This is a great monitor - excellent brightness and very nice color reproduction. The only knock I'd give it is regarding it's base. It sticks a little too far forward for my taste and is mostly plastic.
  • Haven’t had enough time to really enjoy. I am having a hard time trying to get the colors right. Right now picture editing is difficult. My screen on my laptop and screen on the monitor are very different.
ASUS MG28UQ FreeSync 4k Gaming Monitor
  • Fast response time, BEAUTIFUL graphics, and a real treat to use!
  • This is probably one of the very few 1ms response time 4K monitor with HDCP available.
  • The view angle is also incredibly wide, with true color at extreme angles.
  • The color accuracy is beautiful and so is the playback contrast. For gaming I've used it mostly with Overwatch. This monitor is so amazing for what I do that I'm buying a second one!
  • I just hate TN panels. The color is so bad compared to IPS, and the viewing angle is horrific. But TN's usually have amazing response time and high refresh rates.
  • TN panel washed out colors. Color and Gamma shifts with the bad viewing angles
  • The TN panel leaves some wanting when it comes to contrast and color, unfortunately. Even after calibration I definitely saw the difference next to my IPS panel.

What customers say about "Features"
Samsung U28E590D UHD LED-Lit Monitor
  • Good value for the money. Great design and features. Stand could be a little stronger.
  • Love this thing. No speaker, it also tilts downwards a little bit and you can adjust it. Great picture however
  • Everything is great about this monitor. The only thing it is missing is adjusting its height
  • Great screen but doesn’t go to sleep when my iMac shuts off. Keeps power cycling. Need to manually turn off every time I go away from desk
  • Only slight negative I can say for some is the vesa mount is near top of monitor, so I had to move my mount on the wall from previous monitor height. In my case wasn't too much of issue for me.
ASUS MG28UQ FreeSync 4k Gaming Monitor
  • The base is big and bulky; so I order a vesa mount. Mounting to the vesa mount was easy and looks great now.
  • The 90 degree tilt feature was actually a surprise. Turned it by accident, watching my display react accordingly!
  • Everything is good out of the box and it has built in speakers. I didn't buy it for the speakers so it's quite alright.
  • Speakers are adequate and that's all. Thin and tinny sounding.
  • The only reason for the missing star is the speakers are minimal and for such a huge, beautiful screen it seems demeaning to have such weak speakers. Yet, the screen is a SUPER screen.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Samsung U28E590D UHD LED-Lit Monitor
  • Easy setup off my HP Laptop with an HDMI port. Beautiful picture that I have taken advantage of doing video publishing from my Drone Business
  • Pictures and text are great. But for dual inputs, switching between sources via the manual control on the back is awkward, and the lack of any access to digital audio is a distinct disadvantage if you want to use it with sources that don't have their own separate digital audio outputs.
  • Colors and brightness are good. Plug and play on NVidia with display port, virtually no setup. No dead pixels and nice, crisp image. The rear controls aren't convenient for my setup but easy enough to use.
  • I had no problems using this with a amd R9 390p xfx. running 4k at 60hz using display port. I didn't try the cables that shipped with monitor because I have already bought a few high end cables to try to fix my first mistake monitor.
  • For this monitor, if you're using HDMI, use port #2, as that's the one that will give you 60hz. The other is at 30hz, which is slow enough that your mouse cursor seems to "skip frames" when moving it around. You don't want that, especially if flashing lights give you headaches or seizures.
ASUS MG28UQ FreeSync 4k Gaming Monitor
  • It comes with both an HDMI and a Display Port cable which is really convenient.
  • Comes with one of each type of cable: mDP-DP, HDMI v1.4, and USB 3.0.
  • Usb ports on the back are nice.
  • USB ports for my mouse and keyboard are nice for reducing the cable rat's nest behind my desk.
