I don't know what you're doing to calculate DPI but that's wrong. I think you're calculating DPI^2
30" 2560x1600 = 100.63 DPI
24" 1920x1080 = 91.79 DPI
27" 2560x1440 = 108.79 DPI
19" 1920x1080 = 115.94 DPI
13" 1366x768 = 120.55 DPI (most laptops)
Do 19" 1920x1080 panels even exist? Anyways, like I said, unless you have poor eyesight then default scaling will be fine on the 30". And if you have good eyesight then the 27" will also be good at default scaling. The point of getting these high resolution monitors is to see more information at once. Increasing the scaling factor negates that.
Also you can set custom scaling factors. It's one of the text links on the left side in the window where you can choose from the preset scaling factors.

27-inch: 2560x1440/311 = 11815 DPI
24-inch: 1920x1080/246 = 8429 DPI
19-inch: 1920x1080/154 = 13465 DPI
I guess if you're okay with a 19-inch on 1080p, then everyone else is great. I think I'd be blind on it though, since I thought 24" text size was perfect, and I size things up by 25% on 27". Since Win7 only has 100%, 125%, or 150%, I'd have to do 25% on 30" also, and that would be too big on the 24". But certainly, you make a good point that 30" DPI is only slightly worse (8% by my calculation), so if there was some way to get a 110% setting, then that would be a good compromise, and people with better eyesight could probably cope fine.

The 27" start getting a bit higher DPI than standard, but unless you have bad eyesight you can leave the default settings. If you have bad eyesight and increase the scaling settings, then you're not seeing much more info than you would be on a 1920x1080 monitor.

|Thewiz666||Is the 5% mother's day thing already included on the 30" with all the ports as well? I think I'm only seeing it on the single port model.|

If the resolution difference b/w the 24in and 19in bothers you, buying another 24in monitor would be more cost effective.
This monitor is probably an improvement in terms of picture quality and viewing angle (most likely a S-IPS panel), but since you didn't mention the picture quality on your existing monitors, I assume you're fine with what you have.
27" is actually the most popular size. Monoprice keeps selling out of those within hours of getting stock.

|darkhunter||Any full detail review on this monitor?|

Remember, this is a 1600p monitor compared to a 1080p or 1200p monitor.
1600p: 2560 x 1600 pixels = 4,096,000 pixels
1200p: 1920 x 1200 pixels = 2,304,000 pixels
1080p: 1920 x 1080 pixels = 2,073,600 pixels
On this monitor, you're pushing almost twice the number of screen pixels, so you will need a more powerful graphics card.

Too bad I can't find a super adustable one like this in that price range
I love mine.
