ViewSonic VG2401mh Review

Wpid Viewsonic2bvg2401mh.jpg

One of the major downsides of G-Sync and FreeSync technology is vendor lock-in, since AMD cards won’t work at 144Hz with G-Sync screens, and vice versa. ViewSonic has taken a different approach with the VG2401mh, though, which supports a fixed 144Hz refresh rate, regardless of whether your graphics card has an Nvidia or AMD GPU. … Read more

ViewSonic tries to muscle into the professional market with a new 4K screenNot long ago, I covered ViewSonic’s VX2880ml, a 28″ 4K screen for less than £500. The problem with that display was that it only supported 30Hz in 4K resolution, making it less than optimal for gamers.Learning from those lessons clearly, the VP2780-4K is … Read more

Samsung U28D590 Review

Samsung U28e590d 28 Inch Uhd Led Lit Monitor With Freesync Support

Samsung U28D590 – Samsung generally comes up with some pretty decent everyday monitors, but it’s the more elaborate and higher-tech models that get the most attention. As you can imagine, then, a 4K monitor from Samsung is certainly cause for excitement, but can it live up to its expectations?

The Samsung U28D590 is classed as a gaming monitor, with a 28″ TN panel and a 1 ms response time. The maximum resolution is, as usual, 3840 x 2160, and there’s the standard typical 1000:1 contrast ratio. Interestingly, the dynamic contrast ratio is a little difficult to mention. Every time we tried to get an actual number, we were presented with a dynamic contrast ratio of mega’, whatever that means. Needless to say, we imagine it’s quite a lot.

We were quite surprised by the lack of connectivity from this Samsung model. There are just a pair of HDMI ports and a DisplayPort, with an audio output port located in between. Again, as with the Dell unit, the HDMI ports are version 1.4, so the only 60Hz 4K images you’ll see are all going to via the DisplayPort, and you’ll also lose the ability to connect a VGA or DVI cable without some sort of conversion. There’s also no built-in USB hub or speakers either.

Asus PB287Q Review

Asus Pb287q 28" 4k/uhd 3840x2160 1ms Displayport Hdmi Eye Care Monitor

Asus PB287Q Review – Asus, much like Dell, was one of the first companies to offer 4K monitors to the masses as long ago as late 2013. Back then, though, the screens were going, so only those with extremely deep pockets ever managed to sample UHD before the rest of us.

Clearly, Asus has some experience in the 4K arena, and the model we have here was launched last year to much applause and high praise, especially as it was so reasonably priced at that time, so we were expecting something rather good.

Asus PB287Q Review


[sc name=”ad 2″]

The Asus PB287Q is a 28″ TIM panel, with a 1ms response time and a dynamic contrast ratio of 100,000,000:1. There are a pair of HDMI ports (both of which are of the v1.4 30Hz variety) and a single DisplayPort running at 60Hz. You’ll find a pair of 2W speakers, but sadly there’s no USB hub.

Build quality for the Asus is okay, and it offers tilt, pivot and height adjustment, as well as VESA wall mounting. While it doesn’t feel like a cheap plastic unit, we found the movement a little stiff, and there were some creaks and groans from the casing as we moved the screen around.

Samsung S24D590PL

Samsung S24D590PL – A stylish 24in monitor with great image quality.

Samsung’s previous 24in monitors have been all style and not much substance, but the Samsung S24D590PL is different. It’s attractive with a super-slim appearance that is in complete contrast to the majority of monitors (such as the Dell UZ2215H below), and it has good image quality too.

The sturdy, angular, metallic-effect stand is certainly unusual but very classy, and won’t take up much space on a crowded desktop. You can only tilt the monitor because there’s no height or swivel adjustment, but this isn’t unusual in a monitor at this price. It lacks built-in speakers, but these invariably provide dire sound quality so this is no great drawback. You’re always much better off using external speakers or headphones.
