What customers say about "Key Specs"

What customers say about "Display"
Samsung U28E850R LCD Monitor
  • The picture quality is definitely excellent - and it is a relaxation to work on a matte screen.
  • This monitor is very good. Amazing colors and viewing angles.
  • Super colors, very ergonomic and easily adjustable in all directions.
  • This display doesn't have the best contrast in comparison to my previous display.
  • As soon as you look a bit obliquely from the side, a white background immediately gets a brown / bronze cast.
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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

What customers say about "Features"
Samsung U28E850R LCD Monitor
  • The physical design of the monitor is very, very nice. The stand is very sturdy.
  • Excellent monitor. Love the ability to adjust the screen up, down, or tilt.
  • Offers a very decent large picture for office applications and functions such as picture-in-picture etc.
  • I like the height adjustment, because I can put my Mac underneath and the built-in LCD practically stops underneath if you tilt it a bit.
  • Workmanship is very good, it is very well rotatable, swiveling and height adjustable.
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.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Samsung U28E850R LCD Monitor
  • Great thing about this monitor is that comes equipped with virtually every attachment port possible.
  • It has great connectivity of 2x HDMI, DP and mini-DP.
  • I really appreciate, that Samsung added USB 3.0 hub for this monitor.
  • Hooking this up to my Mac Pro Retina is a no-brainer, either using the DP connector that comes with the monitor or use a HDMI connector.
  • Great monitor. Satisfied me with addition of the mini DP port.
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.
  • Colors and brightness are good. Plug and play on NVidia with display port, virtually no setup. No dead pixels and nice, crisp image.
  • I had no problems using this with a amd R9 390p xfx running 4k at 60hz using display port.
  • 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'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.
