What customers say about "Display"
Samsung U28E590D LCD/LED Monitor - Black
  • 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.
ASUS VP28UQG 28-inch 4K UHD FreeSync Gaming Monitor
  • It really is a great item that is big enough for gaming and takes advantages of the Xbox one x's freesync, 10bit color, and 4k.
  • Was expecting something worse! Now when I play in Full HD tv are nothing compare with the brightness and saturation of this monitor, amazing colors
  • Love the monitor, color is great and haven't noticed any flickering while playing my games (fps games)
  • First of all, you need the monitor to be eye level, this is because TN panels dont have the best viewing angles
  • The viewing angle is irrelevant it is virtually impossible to get a match for color, brightness and contrast with other monitors, it is way out of line.

What customers say about "Features"
Samsung U28E590D LCD/LED Monitor - Black
  • 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 VP28UQG 28-inch 4K UHD FreeSync Gaming Monitor
  • ALSO another good thing is it automatically turns itself on, and to the correct input when you turn on a device connected to it.
  • Picture is very good, bright, powerful, fast, and can be adjusted. Nice features like blue light filters and modes etc.
  • Solidly built, it has enough features to make it very attractive for the price.
  • Picture quality is great. It does have sound, but that is not a feature I would recommend using.
  • This Monitor even has ok sound for a monitor. It's got a reasonable price and the monitor has many features on it, including game Plus.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Samsung U28E590D LCD/LED Monitor - Black
  • 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.
ASUS VP28UQG 28-inch 4K UHD FreeSync Gaming Monitor
  • The screen/video quality is excellent. The audio is not so well supported. If you are connecting, eg A Sky monitor, you cannot use the audio over DP or HDMI.
  • Screen is very bright so need to turn down and the only criticism I have is that the connection sockets are awkward to get too.
  • This is an excellent monitor. Good colour saturation, nice refresh rate and good connectivity.
  • I bought this and am sending it back. Connected to my iMac via a usb-c to hdmi lead, when I put the mac to sleep, this monitor would come on and say 'No signal.'
  • The ips glow is terrible when connected to consoles its that noticeable i have to look for a replacement
