|Sultanofdeals||jeez wanabedriver just give up now you are getting pwned. I just got rid of a 24'' that i had for a week. I liked it and want to get one similarly sized but i did see some issues with my desk providing me with a limited viewing distance. Always nice to just be able to turn it around and watch movies from my bed though.|

I agree about the 2 monitor Idea.
If you did some serious shopping, you could likely get (2) 23" Monitors for that price.
If you have the space for Side by Side monitors, they work really nicely.

As an extreme example, if I had ten iPhones (3.5" screen, 960x640 resolution) I'd have 6.1 million pixels. One 23" 1080p screen would have only a third as much, 2 million pixels. I think that the 23" screen would have more real estate for computer work.
EDIT: I guess the 10 iPhone screens would be great for 4 chat boxes, 5 youtubes, and 1 email...

w/c has more "real estate"?
|10-31-2011 02:28 AM|
1920x1200 < 1920x1080 (or 1200p) + 1280x1024 (or 1366x768)
27 > 23 + 19"
27" 1080p or 1200o has less real estate (work space) for documents, browsers, or whatever stuff for simultaneous tasking.

PPI must be horrid on this thing. I'd rather invest in a similarly priced 23" 1080p eIPS for the better PPI, colors, and viewing angles.
EDIT: I guess you could justify the extra screen size for gaming and movies, but other than that, smaller eIPS panel all the way.

|escargoexpress||1080p on a 27 inch monitor essentially makes it a tuner-less TV, not a monitor. There are 22 inch monitors with 1080p which are more suited for the viewing distances for computer work. This would instead make a good dorm TV when combined for a htpc or streaming box, or for those who normally read large-print books and need large text sizes|

TIL: Big does not necessarily mean more real estate and that others see me as jerk. lol!
In regards to the original post...I would definitely pass on the 27" Acer and go with Asus!

TIL: Big != more real estate.
To make my post useful: I use a 28" Hanns G monitor that I got for ~$260 (not sure, only that it was <$300). It is 1920x1200. Contrast and bleeding is horrible. But for my purposes, such as web-surfing, papers, presentations, CAD, and general study work, it is perfect. I like how the big monitor allows me tons of real estate. To give a perspective of how big it is, I can have two 8.5"x11" pages side-by-side on the screen with the Microsoft Word ribbon open and Window's start menu... I love it. However, I always envy the Apple Monitors for their colors (I don't exactly walk into Dell stores just to kill time).
TL;DR: I would recommend big cheap monitors (especially with a resolution of 1920x1200) for budget 'office work'.

"Should I bite?
I had these on my "buy" list:
I just spent a couple of weeks researching monitors and ended up buy a 27" which I returned due to defects. I found that it was too big and I did not enjoy it for the brief time that I had it. I ended up getting a Asus VH238H based on the reviews and the 3 year warranty which covers shipping both ways. It is amazing to say the least! I paired it with tiny 19" and I enjoy using the extended desktop. As soon as I can I will be getting another 23 incher and will have a lot more real estate that a single 27. So I recommend not getting the 27" and going with the Asus you mentioned maybe even the other one as a secondary monitor.
