The Samsung U24E590D is a 24 inch 4K Ultra High-Definition monitor that features AMD’s epic FreeSync technology. Not only is the display clear and sharp, it also covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut. Other features like Flicker Free and Eye Saver modes will allow you to work and play on this monitor all day long with minimal discomfort. The specs of this monitor, along with the mid-level price range, make it easy to recommend to gamers, digital artists, and anyone else who demands the very best picture quality possible but doesn’t want to pay a fortune for it.
Make no mistake, this monitor is definitely 4K UHD and NOT QHD like some sites list it as. The resolution is 3840×2160 pixels, unlike the QHD standard which is 2560×1440 pixels. QHD, as you may already know, is four times the resolution of 720p HD (1280×720 pixels). 4K UHD, on the other hand, is four times 1080p HD (1920×1080 pixels). 4K UHD has a full four times as many pixels as a standard Full HD display with over 8 million pixels. The extra pixels provide an unparalleled level of clarity and sharpness you just won’t get on a Full HD display. While a lot of people may say a 4K UHD TV isn’t necessarily worth the money (depending on the size of the screen and how far away you plan to sit), 4K UHD on a computer monitor is quite a bit more noticeable because of how close you sit to the monitor.
A lot of pixels and sharpness is great, but to truly represent an image or video in the way the original artist intended you need to consider color gamut. A color gamut is basically just how many colors a monitor can accurately represent. This how a lot to do with how bright a monitor can get compared to how dark it can get in order to cover the various bright and dark colors in the gamut. This monitor is certified to cover a full 100% of the sRGB color space. What this means is that it is able to accurately represent every color available in the sRGB standard. More colors equal more realism and images that are more lifelike. Having a wide color gamut is regarded by many to be MORE important than the resolution of a monitor and I tend to agree with this, for the most part.
This is the most important feature of this monitor if you happen to be a gamer. This monitor supports AMD’s FreeSync technology that allows it to change refresh rates depending on the needs of the graphics controller. By changing refresh rates on-demand you can completely eliminate the blurring and tearing that you see on monitors without FreeSync, especially when the images on the screen are changing at a rapid rate. Please note that you will need an AMD Radeon video card or compatible processor APU to take advantage of FreeSync.
Flicker Free and Eye Saver Mode
If you’ve ever got a headache from staring at a monitor all day you know how important this feature is. This monitor is incredibly easy on the eyes and features flicker-free and eye saver modes that allow you to play games or watch videos all day without feeling fatigue and discomfort.
Of course, everyone wants to save energy. Most people don’t even realize how much juice some monitors can draw. This monitor is extremely energy efficient which is good for the environment as well as your electric bill.
