Samsung UD590
Samsung's 4K PC monitors starts at 600 Euro

We got a quick first glimpse of Samsung's new 4K monitors (and curved monitor) at CES 2014, and Samsung has now told us more about the technical details, launch dates and prices. Their “UHD” monitor with TN panel starts at 600 Euro (converted from Nordic prices). Samsung has also unveiled new Full HD monitors.

Samsung’s UD590 4K PC monitor

A slew of new 4K monitors were announced at CES 2014. Samsung’s 28” U28D590D was one of them. It has a resolution of 3840x2160 pixels, as well as picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture functions that let you display two images on the same screen simultaneously.

The monitor is based on a TN panel, which is not suitable for photo and video editing, but instead helps Samsung keep costs low. The TN panel also offers a 1 ms (g2g) response time, 170/160 viewing angles, and 6-bit+FRC colors (update: Samsung says that UD590 has a 8-bit+FRC TN panel). The contrast ratio is 1000:1. The monitor can be connected to a PC via HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort, but only DisplayPort will let you run 4K at 60 Hz (HDMI only does 30 Hz).

Samsung UD590 will be available in March or April with a suggested retail price of approximately 600 Euro (converted from Nordic prices, so price in your country might vary). No launch date for the better UD970 monitor with a PLS panel has been announced.

New Full HD monitors, too

Samsung has also unveiled three new Full HD monitor ranges called SD590, SD390, and SD391. All of them use a PLS panel, which ironically means that they offer better picture quality than their bigger brother with 4K resolution (except for the pixel count of course).

SD590 comes in 23.6 and 27 inch sizes - both with 1920x1080 pixels. They sport a 1000:1 contrast ratio and 178/178 degree viewing angles.

SD390 and SD391 will be available in 23.6 and 27 inch sizes with 1920x1080 pixels. They offer the same viewing angles and contrast ratio as the SD590. They will be available from March, starting at approximately 175 Euro.
