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.

False. Incredibly false.
Agreed, it's a shame when people spread disinformation like this when involving such expensive hardware. Then again, I consider "no problem" as 50 fps average and greater. 1600p with highest settings with a GTX660? Only older games if anything.

The GTX660 is an awesome video card. It should have no problem pushing almost every game at 1600p and highest settings.
I'm reporting this post for trolling.

I'd rather have the Dell 29" U2913WM ultra widescreen IPS for $50 more. Just my preference since i need more screen real estate than normal for working...that and no black bars when watching HD movies!

The Dell 29" is basically a 30" with the black bars cut out. I mean sure if the bars really bother you that much and you would rather see your wall instead...

How can 2560 x 1080 is more "screen real estate" than 2560x1600 ? DUH Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

Not to mention you lose almost 520p vertically.

might as well not pay electricity to power black bars for hours! Smilie...that, and the fact it's the only ultra widescreen out there.

The thing about these large monitors for gaming is that if you get something with a really high resolution like 2560 and you play your games up close to enjoy the fine details of the increased resolution, the monitor was still be limited to 60 Hz refresh rate which means you will suffer eyestrain when you're up close with such a low refresh rate. This is why really want to see 120 Hz monitors in the size of 30 inches or above come down in price and be more common. People don't realize the difference that 120 Hz and 60 Hz makes not only on the aesthetics of the game graphics, but also the comfortability of the eyes.

So that you will be forced to sit or stand farther away from your monitor, but that eliminates the advantage of getting a high-resolution monitor. In this case you would be fine with a 1366 720 P monitor because you won't be able to tell the differences in pixel density when you are that far away. I'm talking like 5 feet away or father.

So one day I will buy one of these monitors when they are cheaper in price but also when one of these feature a 120 Hz native refresh rate that you can game on without input lag. I'm not talking about the cheap interpellation that's found on TV sets which will give you 120 Hz at the expense of unplayable input lag for gamers.

Oh and not to mention if you're sitting up close then motion blur/ghosting is an issue so if you get an IPS screen the lowest is 5 ms which for me still is not enough compared to the smoothness of plasma, CRT, or 2 ms TN panels.
I don't know about gaming but this is perfect if you have to open a lot of windows at the same time (for example, if you are comparing between different files or monitoring other systems in different windows).

Also, the vertical 1600 pixels will go a long way if you are writing or reading a document.

Why would you buy a monitor just for watching movies? For 1k you can get a decent 60 inch tv.

i bought a 27" Shimian (Korean IPS) 2560x1440 in September. i have an overclocked EVGA GTX 670. going from 1920x1080 to 2560x1440 was a HUUUUUUGE hit on my FPS.

checking my benchmarks, i went from an average of 43.8 fps @ 1920x1080 to 27.9 @ 2560x1440 in Heaven 3.0.

both those scores were at my cards default clocks...

a single 660 would not be able to play a lot of recent releases with settings maxed at 2560
damn i bet. i only got a 660 because i wanted to start getting back into gaming. i think that they are gunna start to come out with 120hz monitors for 1080 and 1440p which should be sick . but i dont really play that many games. im sort of into first person shooters but i barely play that. i started this week when i got my xps 8500 and downloaded ghost recon online...u know of any good first person shooters? i guess u can say im starting off as a n00b again.

Does anyone know if there is an inbuilt scalar on the $717 one? It'd be lovely if I could possible play some PS3 or Blu-Rays.

And if not is there something that is equally cheap or maybe even cheaper OMG that is out there?

Are you just watching movies the whole day?

Errr I assume you quoted the wrong person. But the answer to your question "you shouldn't".

Exactly. People easily fall for the 1080p gimmick but it should be pretty obvious that 1600p >> 1080p.
