Why are we still stuck with 1920x1080 resolution on such a big panel? It might be ok for a TV from which you view 10 feet away, but for desktop monitor of that size, it should be higher. Sharp just announced a 5" screen with that resolution targeted for smart phones.

sorry, didn't pay attention to the "regular price" listed since this was just released, and I am simply passing on the message I read from an article.

5ms is pretty slow for gaming or watching fast motion. Nice looking though.

God, that monitor looks beautiful. I'd pay $100 more for that but with 2560*1440 resolution...

For an IPS monitor, 5ms is pretty fast, and I believe up to about 12-15ms is okay for gaming. In my opinion, a few milliseconds is irrelevant since the average human reaction time is about 150-300 milliseconds. Input lag is the larger concern for gaming, which is unspecified. Also, for watching fast motion, refresh rate is more relevant I would say, and this should have the standard 60hz, which is definately sufficient since movies in the theatres run at 24 fps or hz, and I don't see anyone complaining about that. Just thought I'd inform you Smilie

Let you clearly see the screen from multiple vantage points.
Aren't these TN viewing angles?

How do you measure the response time?

From what I've heard , there is no standard for doing that.

Not going to lie. Other than the "borderless" feature, this is not a great deal. Horrible view angles for IPS, 1080 resolution stretched across 27" diagonal, no customizable mount... that's a lot of strikes. Not to mention the obligatory "Catleap 27" 1440p monitor resolution for approximately 300 on sale". I got mine for 290 with no dead pixels or backlight bleed.

they should just make a 24inch and put it at 180-200. would sell a lot more that way. 1080 is just too small for a 27.

^yes.
You are correct, the ms on the IPS monitors at Newegg seem to start at 5ms and go up from there. For an HDTV, that's about as slow as I'd want. For a monitor, it must not make a big different unless you are watching sports.

Not sure how human reaction time has anything to do with monitor ms. Obviously are eyes are faster than our hands.

The lower the ms, the better for watching fast motion - such as sports on TV. Watch a baseball or golf ball fly through the air on a slow set compared to a quick set (say 2ms vs 8ms), both sets being 60Hz. It makes a difference with motion blur.
