Do you use the PIP feature? How is it?halcyon wrote: ↑ I have this monitor from boxing Day. Seems to come down to this price every so often so if you miss out, don't worry too much about it.
It's a great looking monitor. Maybe not as accurate as an IPS but gets the job done. As for Freesync, I can't comment as I have a GTX 1070 (which unfortunately can't take advantage of such a monitor). Of what I read, the Freesync is ok at increasing the refresh rate by around 10-15 Hz...so not too significant.
One thing to consider is the stand for this sucks for a lot of people. My monitor is slightly elevated so I don't have a problem with it but if it's levelled at desk table height, the wt of the monitor can cause it to angle downward a bit (for some, but not all people). I wouldn't right of the off the bat, but consider that you may have to get a separate monitor arm for this screen.
Otherwise, it's a great working screen and good for watching movies. For gaming, it's good but this is coming from a primarily console gamer (I've yet to go down the rabbit hole that is 144 Hz monitors...)

Never bothered with PIP... I have a dual monitor setup so my netflix goes on to the smaller screen as I work usually two or so windows on this monitor.

You may have the U28D590. This is the U28E590 (Source: I have the E model) which has upgraded HDMI 2.0 4k @60hz and it now has VESA mount. Gaming isn't too bad, as I play Overwatch on it at 1440 @60hz with Freesync on. I find that there still is tearing, but I'm not sure if that's my graphics card or just the 60hz. Regardless, it's pretty damn good. If you're using a Mac, which I am also, you'll have to play around with the colours to get what you want. I had to raise the red quite a bit to match my retina display colour.ID01 wrote: ↑ Source: I have this monitor
PIP is not a gimmick for this monitor, it does work fine. It shows a 1080p~ picture at the corner of your screen. Just that making it show up is a little annoying since the control is at the back of the monitor. Also it has no speaker. So I'm not sure how you are going to get your sound. Might need some adapter.
The freesync is fine. It works only up to 60hz, and really at this resolution there are no alternative that does better anyway.
And yes this is not HDR / Freesync 2.
TN wise viewing angle is just okay. Really, 28" is the minimum size for 4k, any smaller you won't see a thing. for monitor, 28" is also the max I would go at TN panel, otherwise viewing angle really get in the way.
One thing about this monitor: The stand is the absolute worst. It wobbles at the slightest vibration, no VESA mount, and no adjustment on the stand whatsoever. Prepare to do your own solution to make it better.
