Samsung’s first monitor to use 4K UHD technology, the UD590, has officially gone up for pre-order in the United Kingdom through PC e-commerce site


It will then go on sale through several more retail outlets, such as the the Samsung eStore, Currys PC World, Argos, Amazon and eBay respectively, from June 15th.

Phil Gaut, Display Director, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “We are continuing to add more innovative solutions to our display range to meet the individual needs of the market. Our first ultra-high definition monitor, the UD590, highlights Samsung’s focus on delivering the best technology possible direct to consumers. We are excited to announce that the monitor is available to pre order now and will be on sale from the start of June, initially with our exclusive retail partner Overclockers and then with our wider retail partners later in June.”

As well as packing a Samsung’s new UHD technology, which is four times the resolution of a full HD display, the UD590 also comes with a response time of 1ms so users are able to movies, browse the internet and play games without any colour blurring or distortion.

What’s also new is the monitor’s ‘Game Mode’. This is claimed to create deeper blacks and reduced motion blur to produce real-life gaming effects. The company is even throwing in a free copy of Watch Dogs to play on the new screen.

We hope to be giving it a go ourselves soon.
