Samsung has started shipping their newest FreeSync-infused 4K displays, the 23.6" U24E590D and the 28" U28E590D. The former goes for an impressively low $399.99, while the latter will set you back $599.99.
Both models feature a 4K (3840x2160) resolution, with FreeSync variable refresh rate support—though at only at a 60Hz maximum—and a static contrast ratio of 1000:1. Full 4K at 60Hz input is supported via the monitor's DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0 ports, although FreeSync is a DisplayPort-only affair for now. There's also a secondary HDMI 1.4 port, along with a headphone output. The included stand features only tilt adjustment, although there are VESA mounting holes if you want to improve on that.
The panel on the 23.6" U24E590D features a 4ms gray-to-gray response time, and will light up your eyes with a brightness of 300cd/m². More importantly, it features 100% sRGB coverage, because enemies' blood must be truly red. With a 4K resolution in only 23.6", better have those DPI settings handy.
Its bigger brother, the 28" U28E590D, drops the PLS panel for a TN model and loses the 100% sRGB color gamut. However, maximum brightness increases to 370cd/m², and the response time is lowered to one millisecond, which might make it a more interesting choice for gamers.
The U24E590D will be in stores in July 26th, while the U28E590D is available immediately.
