Ever since CES we have been expecting an onslaught of 4K monitors to make their way to the market. Today Amazon.com listed the Samsung U28D590D for pre-order for the price of just $699. This is a 28-in display with a 3840x2160 resolution and support for 60 Hz refresh rates courtesy of the DisplayPort 1.2 connection.

That's a hell of a deal for a 4K monitor, especially one capable of 60 Hz (likely through MST)! Worth noting is that the monitor is a TN panel so picture quality won't be as good as the IPS options still selling for over $2500, like the ASUS PQ321Q we reviewed previously.

The panel has a pair of HDMI inputs but both are listed as only supporting 30 Hz 3840x2160 resolutions without any mention of using them both simultaneously.  

You can find the full specifications list on Samsung's website, and we are working to get a sample in for testing in the next two weeks!

Dell U2414H UltraSharp 24" 1080p IPS Monitor @ $262.49 with Free Shipping

Subject: General Tech | December 17, 2013 - 01:14 PM |
Tagged: deals

Dell's U2414H has something special for multi-monitor users, a bezel that is a mere 6.05mm thick!  At 1080p it isn't as impressive as the UP2414Q but also won't break your bank account or require at least two GPUs to power it.  It is an IPS display so the rated 8ms g2g response rate is believable and should fit your gaming needs quite adequately.
