Samsung quietly introduced a few new monitors at CES 2014, but they’re officially taking off the veil of their spring line-up, with pre-orders for their 28-inch 4K model starting today. The Samsung UD590 rocks a 3,840×2,160-pixel resolution and starts at $699 — a competitive price for a monitor of its screen size and resolution.

In addition to the 4K-boasting UD590, Samsung announced the SD590 and SD390 monitors. Both will be released in 23.6-inch and 27-inch models and feature a more modest 1,920×1,080-pixel resolution, minimal ports, and slim bezels.

The Samsung SD390 monitors stylishly stand out with a transparent border that feature a blue tint. It’s cooler than your typically drab, all-black bezel display, and the stand also dons a black base with a clear stem, creating a funky floating-monitor type of illusion.

In a slightly more traditional approach, Samsung’s SD590 series is unique in is “T-shape” stand design. It maximizes desk space through minimizing the monitor’s base and the simple stand slightly resembles a squeegee. However, I like the unique attention to how the monitor fits into your greater working space — it’s a refreshing approach and the monitor itself looks sharp and sleek.

Samsung hasn’t announced exact release dates or all prices, but the SD590 and SD390 will be available in April starting at $249.99. Check back on CNET for more information when it becomes available.
