What the brand doesn’t always tell you…

our Verdict

The Samsung U32J590 is the perfect monitor for console gamers who want UHD 4K resolutions. It has low input lag, fast response time, and Freesync compatibility, making it great for consoles with AMD cards. While it does work with Nvidia cards, it’s not the best choice for PC gamers who want to play at high frames per second, as the refresh rate is limited to 60Hz. With its high contrast ratio, wide color gamut, and exceptional color accuracy, images are displayed at excellent quality, though the peak brightness is low. If you mainly play on consoles and don’t mind playing in a dark room, this is the perfect monitor for you. If any of the features like dim brightness, glare-prone panel, or mediocre refresh rate are a dealbreaker, you may want to look elsewhere.
