Hello guys! Currently I’m using Monitor LCD Samsung P2770H 27 inch, 2ms for motion graphics, but I would like to replace it with a 27 inch 2560×1440 res monitor. My budget is max $1000 and I don’t want Apple brand. I read a lot of user reviews and descriptions, but still can’t decide what to get.:|

I am considering to buy one of this: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&sku=225-4015

..or this:

Please help me with some advice or just simply post a comment containing the monitor type you use. Thanks! :bigsmile:

I am personaly using HP ZR2740W – 27” IPS LED backlit monitor and I love it. You might give it a shot – it is not really expensive for that quality range, and it has its height/pivot adjustable which was pretty important to me.

Check it here: http://www8.hp.com/hr/hr/products/monitors/product-detail.html?oid=5164375#!tab=features

EDIT: I also had to decide between this one and Dell Ultrasharp. In the end I went with HP and haven’t regret it :)

Thanks guys! I will take a look at that HP too. Sorry to hear that the ant-glare isn’t working good.

Any other opinion would be more than welcome!

I’m using an older 27” Philips in combo with a 27” Asus: http://www.asus.com/Monitors_Projectors/MX279H/

The ASUS has a really great viewing angle but no matter how I adjusted color, brightness, contrast, you name it, it’s kind of dark and has trouble displaying low contrasting shadows and similar tones in general. I for one can barely see a difference between #000 and #111 for example, not to say anything in between :)

I don’t trust Asus monitors, have one 21.5 inch wide. Low contrast and color accuracy, also the left side is little blurry.. Not sure about 29 inch wide monitors, I think it’s more suitable for video or sound editing, and not looking for dual monitor setup at the moment.

I was also looking at ASUS, and once I found out that the panel used by them is actually from LG… I started looking for something else.

If anyone knows a good IPS monitor, with a response time under 5ms and a decent price, please share a link/name :)

I picked up a 27’ Dell Ultrasharp a few years ago and wasn’t too fond of it, ended up returning it a few days later. It had 3 dead pixels and it displayed gradients terribly, displayed a ton of banding. Ended up ordering one of these: http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/monitors/LS27B970DS/ZA and I’m pretty happy with it. The color is pretty great as is the viewing angle. It’s got two drawbacks..

  1. It’s got a glass screen, so if you sit in a room with a window behind you, I’d imagine you’d have a lot of glare issues. Thankfully my room has one window and it’s off to the side so I only have glare problems for about 45 minutes as the sun is going down.
  2. To make it really thin, they put all of the hardware in the base. So you can’t remove it from it’s base to mount it if you’d like to.

Besides that I have no complaints, best monitor I’ve ever owned and it’s got a wider range of colors over the Cinema Displays and the Ultrasharp line. I got mine from Newegg when it first came out and grabbed it for $960.00. Unfortunately it looks like Newegg no longer carries it, and Samsung’s site is listing it for $1,199. If you decide on this one, you might want to shop around and try to find a better price.
