Samsung's 28in monitor uses UHD to improve multitasking

Goes on sale for $750

‘If you build it, they will come’ appears to be the ethos of Samsung’s vigilant Ultra HD campaign, as the company continues to release products that support the standard in spite of a lack of content.

The recent addition to the company’s UHD range is a 28in monitor called the UD590. The monitor has an LED-backlit LCD panel — with lighting stemming from the edges — and a viewing angle of 165 degrees

The headlining feature is the monitor’s 3840x2160 resolution, not only for its ability to support whatever UHD content is available, but because of the way Samsung taken advantage of the technology.

Displays compatible with UHD content have 8.29 million pixels; that’s four times as many as the current Full HD standard. The additional pixels makes it possible to display up to four displays in native Full HD resolution.

Samsung’s UHD monitor uses the extra pixels to multitask applications at resolutions up to Full HD, or to support the displays of two notebooks simultaneously in their native resolutions. The monitor hosts two HDMI ports and a display port.

Other impressive specifications include a 2ms response time and a 1000:1 contrast ratio.

Samsung’s UD590 is currently available in Australia for $749.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
