Asus PB287Q vs Samsung U28D590 vs...?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Sup guys, it's been a while... :D

 

I'm after a relatively cheap 28" 4K 60 Hz monitor, what's my best value option? It won't really be for gaming although I'm sure I will game on it every so often, it's mainly for content creation, multimedia and work. I just want the screen real estate. I've been out of the game for a while but I've found the PB278Q and U28D590, the Dell P2815Q would be nice but the 30 Hz max refresh rate is a real deal breaker...

 

Max budget would be around the £500 mark.

 

Thanks!!

The PB287Q is competition-less since it is the only 4K TN panel with less than a frame of input lag (tested by Linus) and is as good as TN's get anyway, plus it has a height adjustable stand while the Samsung does not.

Thanks. :)

 

Input lag doesn't really bother me, picture quality is the only thing I'm really bothered about. Should I still get the Asus? I'm also considering waiting until 4K IPS monitors become more affordable...

Dunno if you considered it, but your 780 Ti isn't going to push graphically intensive games, like BF4, at 4k. No way. Unless you lower the settings.

By the time you increase text to legible sizes, 4K does not offer that much more real-estate, plus Windows 7 scaling is not the greatest, the 4K TN's can use BGR pixel layout which reduces sharpness vs. RGB and they use grainier matte coatings which further reduces sharpness (combine with Windows 7 scaling and possible BGR issues) vs. the matte coatings used by 27" 1440p monitors. 4K TN panels are a joke, but if you have to have one, the PB287Q is the best. Waiting for the 4K BenQ BL3201PT might be wise.

I won't really be gaming on it and if I do it will just be for light co-op stuff like Borderlands, I don't mind lowering the settings.

Thanks bud! I won't be buying until early January probably, so I'll take all your points into consideration and we'll see what the market is like then.

I say wait until the Dell P2715Q comes out as it is IPS. Should be in the next 1-2 months since the drivers and manuals have leaked.

Stay FAR away from the Dell P2815Q, that’s the first monitor I bought and although it had a great picture the 30hz was unbearable. Not only were games unplayable but everything that moved on the desktop ghosted. Returned it the very next day.

My choices were limited back then but if I were to get one right now it would probably have to be the PB287Q. I have Samsung’s 4k monitor and absolutely love it but the stand is not adjustable which is not a big deal for me but I know it’s important to others. I’m sure next year will bring many more choices though.

MenacingTuba is correct about the scaling and it’s a very overlooked issue. Most games scale fine but program UI’s don’t. However upon writing this I did discover that newer Adobe products do support UI scaling (asuming thats what you use for content creation) without losing the resolution of your work like you normally do with the Windows scaling. I tested this out tonight and it works pretty well. I’ve included a screenshot below.
