27" IPS LED CrystalPro Monitor WQHD 2560x1440 [monoprice.com]

3 models above, one has all inputs and the other is just a barebones DVI. 27inch is also in stock now!(Edit: OOS again =(

Insane price for a 30inch IPS, and the panel inside is from a "LOWER GRADE" Apple Cinema/HP/Dell. These are grade A-/A panels while Apple/Dell/HP All have A/A+ panels. Get them while they're hot as the 27 inch is already sold out.

Use coupon catalog12 to lower the price noted on the top.

Most demanding GAMES, plural you f'ing troll. Okay just to make you happy, you f'ing dunce, change 30-40 to 25-40. Jesus you tards are just asinine.
there's really no reason to reply to someone so discourteous and rude as yourself, but here i am.


those games (bf3 and crysis 2) are almost 2 years old now. newer 3d and fps shooters are even more demanding, so think about it....if 2 year old games are not playable on a 660 at 1600p ultra, the new games will be even worse. you are giving bad and incorrect advice, but there is nothing wrong with playing new titles at high or medium.

you stated something incorrect on the internet. it happens, but you seem to be so wrapped up and invested into it, that you lash out.

i would take a long hard look at yourself and your life. there is a lot more out there than being right on the internet, and treating people like you do does nothing but show what a sad person you are.

Can I get the full resolution through HDMI? I have an HP laptop with ivy bridge i7, nvidia 650m with 2gb vram, no dvi-d, just HDMI and rgb. I don't game, will use it for auto cad, adobe creative suite and web browsing and ms office.
No, HDMI isn't capable of driving more than 1920x1080 to a "normal" monitor, HDMI 1.4 can drive higher resolutions but not in a format compatible with most PC displays.

Also, I'm not going to get way into the fray of "can you game on this with video card XXX" but keep in mind most people are throwing around maxed out settings (including AA) and AA isn't really that necessary when you're driving really high pixel pitches, aliasing or "jaggies" are caused by straight lines being just offset from the straight lines of pixels on a screen, the higher the pixel density the less likely that is to be an issue.

long story short, 1080p is easy.

however, others are incorrect. 1.3 hdmi can output to 1600p at 60hz on 24 bit ( i believe, going off memory) but it's not easy to do. most of the cheap hdmi cables are only capable of lower, but i would google your laptop model and see what the max people are getting. hdmi 1.3 is certified for that resolution, but the graphics card and parts on the laptop may not go that high. if the laptop is capable of it, then i would research for a nice cheap hdmi cable that will do it.

then why do these manufactures bother with adding hdmi if you can't use the full resolution with that input?

I remember the last time you could have gotten 3012h for $850.


I been using 3007wfp for 2 years that I got on ebay new for below $600 (ya, sick price, I know), and it kicks major ass!

I had the 3007wfp and it was great but sold it after I upgraded to Windows 8 because the Dell 3007wfp doesn't support the 2560 x 1600 resolution and Dell won't make Win8 drivers for it UNLESS the video card maker makes drivers for it which I was unsuccessful finding one. I'm assuming your running either XP, Vista, or Win7. I now have the Dell U2713HM IPS and absolutely love it. I do miss the extra real estate thou.

Anyhow... just a heads up for when you switch over to Windows 8 and if you have and running the max resolution then great!

yeah i have a hp 1080p 25in right now that i got for $50 on Craigslist. Would like something bigger, but 1080p would probably not cut it on a larger screen. i was looking at the other thread about the 27in monoprice one, and someone mentioned a model at microcenter that had hdmi, but they explicitly stated that you could not get the full resolution through hdmi in the product description.

Here, educate yourselves.

I really hope DisplayPort takes over the market so we do not have to keep paying the extortion tax of HDMI. (Read the article to see what I am speaking of. Particularly the part about Cost [wikipedia.org].)

i'm not sure about that exact model, but unfortunately it's a common misconception that hdmi is only 1080p. even the older 1.2 could do greater than 1080p (not much though.)

it's tough to get it to work though. i've read countless reviews of people having trouble with the hdmi, so it's very possible that your laptop can only do 1080p ( or more likely 1200p.) i would google it, but make sure you read A LOT of them because most only try one cable and assume it can't go that high.

Don't forget that Nvidia came out with their LCD overclocking software. Hopefully in the future you can use the software to play games at 120 Hz without noticeable input lag on regular 120 Hz 3-D TVs.

whoever said HDMI is maxed out to 1080p is wrong. Back when 24" in monitors were 1920 x 1200 and not 1920 x 1080 they used HDMI cables.
