Is it time to upgrade my monitor yet ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I havn't really being paying attention to the monitor market now for some time. I'm not a person that knows a great deal about them either other than resolutions. I am curious though for someone who has more experience in this department to assist me information and the best choice to make.

This here is the monitor that I currently have:

(Has a 60hz refresh rate)

I've had it for awhile now from what I can last recall and as I've said, wondering if its worth holding on to this one for a little longer time or to replace it.

Nope that's a great monitor, unless you want 120hz for 3D or a higher res (which are expensive) then there is no need to upgrade.

It all comes down to whether you are happy with your current monitor. The fact that you are asking this question either tells me that you are ready for an upgrade or you want to learn more about current monitors. What are you looking for in the new monitor. Do you want a higher resolution (like 2560x1440 or 2560x1600), and a better quality display (like an IPS panel). You do have a pretty old model but it is very large at 28" and has a decent 1920x1200 resolution. Currently IPS displays have the best picture quality and viewing angles. They do cost quite a lot. A Dell U2711 27" costs around $999 (it has gone on sale for $824 before). I'm not sure how prices compare in the UK but I did find it at the store you provided in the OP: link. Bottom line is if you are happy with your monitor I really don't see a huge need to upgrade, you have a very large display and very good 1920x1200 resolution. I hope that helps you a little.

Thank you. I am happy with the monitor I already have, I like the size and I got it for a bargin. I noticed that since last checked on monitors that there were the new monitors out and the 3D 120hz, So I was just making sure that there was nothing that I was missing out on.
