I wonder what the input lag is... Found it with a review: "The input lag of the U28D590D was calculated using SMTT 2.0, a sensitive camera and a range of displays of known latencies to compare with. We measured 33.2ms (just over 2 frames) of input lag."

This is relatively high... Altho there are no mentions of which mode was used, if there is a gaming mode ( which usually makes the input lag drop significantly ), etc.

Still gives a good idea, 2 frames = triple buffering enabled on a practically input lag free monitor. So yeah, you will feel it, definitely. Not the best for gaming. But other applications? Who knows!

Alternative review also showing that it is far from optimal regarding input lag: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/samsung-u28d590d-4k-ultra-hd-monitor,4033-7.html
