[Staples] Samsung LU28R550U - 28" 4K UHD IPS Monitor - $324.99 (w/ code 75490 @ checkout)

Was deciding between the ASUS VG289Q or this. They both use the same IPS panel and virtually the same monitor, research says. But with the added staples coupon code (75490 - (coupon expired at Nov 26 @ 11:59 pm) at checkout swayed my decision.

Ebates is only 1%. Which equates to another $3.50 cashback.

Also, using your favourite Cashback credit card with the average no annual fee cash back cards ranging from 1-2%, you can get another $3.67 - $7.34 cashback.


Note: if you have used this code recently on a past order in the past couple of weeks, you must use another email when checking out as guest or use another account as this code can only be used 1 per email address.

New code for $15 off that works 76366

One year warranty, isn't Samsung monitors usually 3 years? Looks kinda cheap, maybe it is. Warranty's often reflect manufacturers faith in the products reliability (not that Samsung's warranties are worth much is practice anyway).

Curved distorts text, so unless you're only using the screen for video and games it's a bad choice for monitors. That's why you don't see many curved monitors.

Many? There's hundreds of models? I've got a 38 and 34in curved and can't say any text is distorted for my purposes. Just seems to be screen technology related, not getting 4k ips manufactured in curved yet.

is it good for gaming with the 60hz refresh rate versus monitor @ 144hz?

If you aren't getting at least 144 FPS on the video games then you aren't using the technology.

60Hz is fine for most mid budget gamers. 144Hz is considered high-end... you have to have the hardware to support a high FPS to get advantage of the high refresh rate.

It's important to check/factor-in the cost of driving those pixels at the intended refresh rates (i.e. graphics card).
