Samsung U28D590D 4K 28" Monitor $499 @ Mwave

410

Recently received an email from Mwave titled "Surprise". Inside was a link to this deal which is supposedly the cheapest 4k monitor in Australia, $20 cheaper than the deal posted earlier today.

The deal is limited to the first 50 people only.

Ive ordered from mwave numerous times and have never had an issue with them before.

Edit: Appears Umart also have the same deal going currently.

    Picked one up from Bing Lee earlier this week - $60 more :(

    This is a great price!

    I wasn't expecting much quality wise, however I am surprised by how well it works. I've got it hooked up to a MacBook Pro Retina 15 and the resolution scaling is awesome (this does require Mac OS 10.3+ though). It basically feels like I have a full retina 28" screen running at a virtual 2560x1440 equivalent or higher. And of course video content still plays at full 4k as it doesn't need to scale.

    Little bit of colour variation from different angles with the TN panel, but not noticeable if sitting in front of it.

    As per usual out-of-the-box settings are way way way too bright and over saturated, but a bit of messing around brings this back to an acceptable level.

    Not as good as my Dell 27", which is IPS - but this is a 4k monitor for a slightly lower price.

    Bit buggy when accepting new sources or changing resolutions, but a quick power off and on fixes it up - and then it works fine.

    Overall, If you need (or want) 4k, then this is actually not too bad and quite usable, but if you want a nice big, high(ish) resolution screen with good colour reproduction, then stick to the top 27" IPS screens like Dell's or Apple's or similar.

    Any opinion on a 4k screen vs HD 120mhz for a gaming build? GPU is a 780 or 780ti

      Stick with a 120hz screen..

      At the moment you'll struggle to run moderately intensive games at any sort of decent frame rate at 4K with a single GPU setup. If I was buying a new screen right now I'd be getting a 1080/1200p 120MHz with Gsync.

        Incorrect, I've got two of these Samsung monitors (and have ordered a 3rd) and it's definitely playable on a single gtx 780

          So you're running games at 7680x2160? With apparent plans to be running them at 11520x2160? With a single GTX 780? At more than 1FPS? Kudos. Actually, no - I didn't mean kudos - I mean BS.

          @johnno07: I game on single monitor, so 3840x2160, moving to 11520x2160 with 3x 780's (only way to have 3x 60hz DP ports)

          Running on a single 780 is pretty easy, med-high settings, just dropping the AA/AF (as you dont require it because of the PPI) easy as

    Meh TN Panel. Shitty colour / viewing angles.

    That's why it's cheap.

    Now if it was IPS/120hz …

    Invest in a good monitor if you use the computer a lot. I mean the monitor is the main thing you'll be staring at, why go for something crappy. Same thing as mouse/keyboard/chair. I use it always so never go for something el cheapo.

      That's my philosophy. I'd rather spend all my money on a good monitor before a fast CPU or extra RAM.

      I've been lucky enough to never own an IPS panel. Means I don't know what I'm missing!
