    New allround monitor.

    Did some browsing tonight.
    Asus PA246Q and Dell UltraSharp U2711 seems good.
    I mostly watch movies browse the web/photoshop some gaming but not much. Are these two the best for a reasonable sum? Anyone important forgotten?

    I would like to keep under the 1000 line. Preferably the 500 line as I'm not using the monitor professionally/tech nerd.

    over and out.

    I'm pretty sure the that the Dell Ultrasharp 27 incher is just below $800-$1000.

    However the 21 and 23 inchers are a much more manageable $200-$350. I recently just went from a 27 inch TN Panel Monitor to a 23 inch IPS LG Monitor....honestly the loss of a few inches wasn't really a big deal. At least for me anyway.

    thanks for the feedback darkmagistric.
    I looked at more reviews and went and looked at some actual screens.
    Going for either an Asus PA246Q (560d) or the semiprofessional NEC P241W (830d).

    Anyone tryed any of these? Going to see the Nec live tomorrow if I can find a store. Curious how they differ playing video and gaming.
    Anyone care to give me their 2cent?

    I'm in a similar boat. I am looking at getting the Asus PA246Q as well. There isn't an awful lot of information about it though. I believe it's comparable to the Dell u2410.

    I just ordered U2711, but if you don't want to pay as much, i would recommend
    U2412M, or HP ZR2440w

    Best,

    I have Dell U2711, You WON'T be disappointed in any way. Although make sure you use proper color profile as well as good quality Dual Link DVI Cable. See tftcentral website for more info.

    Although word of advice is the monitor gets quite warm, so keep it in well ventilated area. Don't be alarmed when it becomes heat up, its normal. There is no rotation on its stand unless you are using a custom VESA mount.

    Disregard Internet reviews, Only credible (tftcentral, Cnet) are worth reading, 90% of them are biased opinions rather than reviews done by amatures.

    PS: Refurbished Dell U2711 are NOT factory calibrated, so don't be misguided by the fact that AdobeRGB or sRGB are factory calibrated or if you are finding a good deal for a refurbished. I got mine in $300 for only under 1000 hours used (Person selling was in financial problem) . But I had to calibrate it.
