First introduced at CES in January, Samsung today quietly started taking preorders for a new billion-color, 3,840 x 2,160 28-inch 4K monitor. The UD590 includes two HDMI 1.4 and one DisplayPort, audio out, and introduces a slick brushed metal look with thin bezels and a ’T-shaped’ stand that minimizes the machine’s overall footprint. Perhaps the most intriguing part about Samsung’s new display is the price: $699 makes the UD590 an extremely competitive option to monitors from Dell, Sharp, Asus and others with similar specs but much higher price tags. Also included is a new “Picture-by-Picture” mode that lets you “connect two PCs to the same monitor and see the desktops of both simultaneously on one screen that’s divided into two.”

The monitor will be released and ship on April 18, but you can preorder it from Amazon now for $699 with free shipping using the link below:

    I hope this means we’ll finally see a new Thunderbolt Display soon. I keep saying that, have said it for about a year now, but don’t believe it. I really think Apple may be getting out of the display business.

    • In my case, I am quite glad that apple didn’t come up with 4K monitors. Imagine what the price-tag would’ve been if apple released it a year ago (when average price was more than 2K). I think the market is stable now for apple to release new monitors this summer with reasonable price-tag (thanks to samsung!).
