SAMSUNG UE57 Series 28-Inch 4K UHD Review | In-depth Monitor Analysis
We have tested the SAMSUNG U28E570D monitor , which is the predecessor of the SAMSUNG U28E590D monitor in the hierarchy of the UE57 series. At the 4K monitor level, this display screen proved itself as a real gaming monitor with a bit of gaming aesthetics and high-end picture quality as well. Besides a good 2160 pixels resolution, this monitor comes up with other prominent features as well.
These characteristics of this SAMSUNG 4K monitor 144hz are very much organized and appealing. that besides your gaming needs, you can also opt for this monitor for your office use. Its highly appealing design and perfectly engineered chassis will definitely add to the beauty of your working desk. For brief information on this monitor, let us read our full SAMSUNG UE57 series 28-inch 4k UHD review.
The external body of this monitor has a matte finish which is enclosed in a metallic frame to ensure sturdiness so that the monitor becomes more durable. If you look towards the stand or the base of this monitor, then you find they are not made of aluminum. But the T-shaped base is present, which is extremely strong to support the chassis so that the monitor does not wobble.
The overall build quality of this Samsung monitor is acceptable. Although the major portion of the monitor has a plastic materialistic approach with a textured finish that feels quite subtle and appealing to look at. All the components are placed perfectly and this monitor will definitely serve you for years.
SAMSUNG UE57 Series 28-Inch 4K UHD Design
With a completely perfect aesthetical approach, this monitor proves itself as a more appealing element to be used on the office desk. As compared to SAMSUNG – UR55 series 28″ IPS 4k UHD monitor , the UE57 with its matte black body and textured back is more beautiful. This display monitor has modern looks that are accompanied by a metallic T-shaped base as well.
The stand is so basic, but it gives a dramatic look that feels pretty good. The foot or base of the stand is very much small. But even then, this stand is not so stable as there is not much weight on it, so there is a very high possibility to get the stand moved accidentally. The most strange thing is that the VESA mount option is placed at the top of the back.
The major thing here in our SAMSUNG UE57 series 28-inch 4k UHD Review to consider is that this Samsung monitor does not support HDCP 2.2 which directly means that on this display screen you cannot watch any HDCP 2.2 protect content in 4K resolution which is a clear downside of this monitor. The viewing angles of this monitor are worst as well because of the TN panels.
The response time and the resolution of this display screen are up to the mark that will definitely serve you well for your gameplays. The fastest 1 ms response time is a good plus point that will avoid the ghosting effect or any trail behind the fast-moving objects. So that buttery-smooth gameplay with crystal clear clarity can be provided.
The maximum details and the perfectly crispier image are the characteristic features of this monitor, which is because of the high-quality 3840×2160 (UHD) resolution. All the content on the screen is presented in a 4K resolution which makes the overall display sharper that will provide you with the most immersive gameplay so that you can be a perfectly competent gamer.
This Ultra HD 4K resolution on this 28 inches screen offers a good display approach that might be the main reason for the fame of this display screen. This 2160 pixels resolution suffices to get all the gaming titles very clear. Besides gaming, you may also use this monitor for your daily routine tasks, content creation, and other demanding jobs as well.
Ergonomics play an important role in making or breaking better and exact viewing angles of your display monitor. If we talk about the ergonomics characteristics of this UE57 model, then we will say the SAMSUNG has completely disappointed its customers with such poor ergonomic adjustment characteristics. You will only get a single tilt-only adjustment option, which is not sufficient.
Our SAMSUNG UE57 series 28-inch 4k UHD Review says that the tilt range starts from -20° and ends at 5°. There are no swivel and pivot options at all, so you cannot move your monitor to 90 degrees. You can only make minor adjustments by tilting the screen. Besides these, there are even no height adjustment options on this display screen, and this is quite pathetic.
As this monitor has a TN panel that performs not too good is we compare it with the other VA panels and IPS display pixel types as well. So the Samsung UE57 series has got narrow viewing angles that deteriorate the image quality and the color shifting as well when you see either from the right or the left side of the screen.
This monitor got vertical viewing angles of 160° and the horizontal viewing angle is about 170° that is not enough. With a such, narrow viewing angles approach you can not share your screen with others. And this is a real and expected downside for these TN panels that we all already know. But in case you want to improve the viewing angles, you can purchase a VESA wall mount stand as this monitor is VESA compatible.
In our SAMSUNG UE57 series 28-inch 4k UHD review, we have also tested the contrast ratio of this monitor that resulted in a value of 1000:1 (static) which is pretty well for the monitors with TN panels. So you can get a good darkroom performance with such an amazing contrast ratio of this monitor.
However, this contrast ratio is not so up to the mark, but you can enjoy a competitive gaming experience with this monitor in darker rooms or moderately lit places. The monitor can show up the dark/deep black areas perfectly so that you can not feel any kind of hassle or issue during your immersive gameplay.
The peak illuminance of this monitor is very high that allows you to enjoy all the colors perfectly with no deterioration even if you are sitting in a fully bright room. 370 Nits of brightness is a pretty well value that makes your entire screen extremely illuminated. Without facing many issues, you can enjoy your gaming environment with this display.
Moreover, the brightness of this monitor is very much high but we never recommend you to set it to the highest. If you do so, then you are more likely to get headaches or other eye-straining issues. This monitor is no less than a blessing for hardcore gamers as it fulfills all the optimal gaming conditions that are required for high-end gaming.
The major factor that influences the popularity and the functionality of the monitor is the selection of ports. If we talk about the extra ports in the SAMSUNG UE57 series 28-inch 4k UHD review, then you will come to know that the ports selection is mediocre in this monitor. A headphone jack of 3.5 mm is present. You want to connect any external speakers or headphones.
Besides this jack, on the backside, you will only get 2 HDMI ports and a single DisplayPort which you can use to connect your gaming console and gaming PC with this display. If you are looking for any USB Type-A or USB Type-C port on this monitor, then you will get disappointed as there are no such port combinations on this monitor.
Response Time & Refresh Rate
The response time speed of this monitor is the same as the SAMSUNG 4k monitor 27 inches Samsung S80UA . With this 1 ms response time, you will observe no delay between the movement on the screen and the command that you have given. This ultrafast response time is the only thing on this monitor that is the real value addition to this monitor.
60 Hertz is the peak refresh rate of this Samsung UE57 Series, which is perfect for console gaming. The VRR technology of this display screen avoids all types of choppy images, blurred trails behind the fast-paced objects, and even you will not see any low input lag in this monitor with a high refresh rate.
This monitor is very excellent and the overall performance of this display screen from the SAMSUNG UE57 Series is up to the mark as well. It offers you a perfect image quality with a 4K resolution that will definitely add a joyous experience to your gameplay so that you can enjoy fully immersive gaming. Remember that in this SAMSUNG 28 inch 4k monitor 144hz refresh rate is not present.
Besides all these features and highly amazing characteristics of this monitor. Economics is the major reason for its popularity. This monitor is very much inexpensive and you can buy it at the price of any standard 1080 pixels monitor.
