I truly want to jump on this, I'm running a 21" 1080p Dell that although works great I'd love to upgrade, but so many questions in my mind keep holding me back...

Is it worth waiting for a touch-enabled monitor instead?
Should I wait for 30" 16:10 2560x1600 instead?
Are 4K monitors going to go mainstream at a decent price?

Think I might hold off (grudgingly) until the price is around ~500.

i bought a Korean (Achiva Shimian) 2560x1440 monitor in September.

Heaven 3.0 Benchmark all settings maxed @ 1920x1080 (taken using a Sony 32" LCD)
43.8 FPS avg
20.5 FPS min
110.6 FPS max

same exact settings @ 2560x1440
27.9 FPS avg
16.9 FPS min
65.6 FPS max

i7 920 @ 4ghz
12gb DDR3 ram in triple channel
EVGA GTX 670 2gb @ stock clocks
128gb Crucial M4 SSD

it definitely takes a lot more juice to run at 2560x1440
God damn!!! A 2gb 670? Yeah.. maybe this isn't for me. Let me ask you though.. does it look bad on 1080p, because its not the monitor's native res? Just wondering...

i didn't run the bench @ 1080 on the Shimian. i had the results saved from running it on the 32" Sony LCD at 1080. i have played a few older games that did not support 2560x1440 resolution and it was easily noticeable that the resolution was not running native. it wasn't horrible but definitely not good.

I always find the amount of ignorance astounding whenever one of these monitors get FP'd. Idiots come out of the wood work to compare their POS tv's to these monitors that have way better image quality.

No running anything less then the maximum resolution will usually end terribly on LCDs (unlike CRTs R.I.P. Frown). I owned a monitor just like this and 1080p looked poor and doesn't scale well, Consoles also look even worse at 720p. A 1080p monitor/tv would scale those resolutions better and will be less blurry.

A U2412m or U2410 at 1920x1200 is the smart choice for the vast majority of users.

+ Watch 1080p videos natively
+ Vertical screen height is the same
+ The increase in horizontal screen space is wasted when most applications look best at 4:3
+ The additional 240 pixels vertically is negligible, and is a detriment if you watch anything 1080p
+ 50% cheaper

If you are a prosumer with actual needs for this display, none of these apply to you.

A bud of mine got a U2412m off craigslist, they are really nice monitors. Only thing is being the graphic design stickler that I am, I noticed even at 1200p you start ascending into the fuzziness/pixellated category at that size if you sit up close. Otherwise the ultrasharp IPS panels are awesome, they are like staring at a 4-color ink National Geographic photo on your desktop. I just wish I had the money to drop on one of these bad boys.

I'll have to check out a 27" 2560x1440 next time I'm around one and see if the slight DPI increase really makes a big difference. (94 dpi vs 108 dpi) I would assume not, but can't really say if it's worth the 2x cost for the normal consumer. Maybe I only assume not because I've already dropped $280 on a U2412m.

Just this morning I went out and took this picture (http://imgur.com/t7dAv) and did not think it looked blurry or pixelated on my screen Smilie

Thanks for the comment.

I was looking for an All-In-One with an IPS in the 800-1000 range with a similar screen but i missed the ship on the DELL XPS ONE 27 @800+fs+tax. I called in about this deal and tried to get the coupon AND my dell member purchase program discount (Which I get through my job).

They were able to apply both my 5% mpp discount, a different 10% discount (since the coupon wouldn't take for her) and free shipping. plus i get a minimum of 1% cashback on my CC.

That brought my grand total to:
588+41tax = 629.80 minus CashBack

Overall, i'm happy with the result. i had her email me the quote while i make up my mind on it... but i was able to squeeze a few bucks more out of this one in case you were wondering. :]

1. Touch is a preference. i, personally, have no desire to hold my arms up and touch the display. a monitor like this is almost exclusively for a professional environment working with photo/video editing or a strong demand for the extra real estate afforded by the resolution in which case you would like not want to be touching/smudging peanut butter cups all over the display. A typical consumer would hardly benefit from the extra resolution.
2. again, waiting on 30" is all preference, at this resolution and dpi, each inch will add a considerable amount into the price. if you're only watching movies, reading online, working on docs, playing video games (and the like), you will not be able to make good use of this resolution. personally, i think that 27" is the cut off for the largest monitor one could comfortably sit in front of before it is literally too big.
3. High resolution (high pixel density or "retina") displays will likely continue to remain expensive price per inch unless demand drives that in the other direction. for instance, high pixel densities with reasonable prices per inch are accomplished in handheld ipads, etc. b/c there is a strong consumer demand driving it. at this size, the practical use of the resolution vs pixel density starts to peter off and consumers are not willing to pay 1500 (of which $6-700 is display alone) for a computer system for gaming/internet/movie watching when any $200 1080p panel will more than suffice and cut the price nearly in half. there simply isn't a large market for it. I wouldn't hold out for a dip in price for high dpi in medium/large displays unless new video formats become more mainstream. If you NEED it now, buy it now.wave otherwise, pass.

not even the u2410. the u2412m is suitable for most people.

Could anyone recommend a good 27" 1080p IPS? (amateur photography -- getting more serious about it.. and avid gamer here.. or should I just stick to an LED LCD?)
