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
Please help me with some advice or just simply post a comment containing the monitor type you use. Thanks!
These dell Ultrasharp ones are really amazing, im considering them in th future, i guess they are the best buy for designers, did you consider looking at some Asus models ?
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
The anti glare in Dell U series monitor is really bad in my opinion, i recently purchased a u2412m and i’m not happy with 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!
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..
- 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.
- 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.
