you get about 33% more pixels on the same amount of screen, so yeah, its noticable.

(sorta like comparing the old iphone with the iphone 4s display - if you've done that - difference is huge imo)

But ofc it also comes down to what you can afford. For movies i dont think that it'll be much of a difference. I do watch alot of movies on my PC at least.

And yes, at least i've only seen 2560x1440 (or higher) on 27 inches, or higher than that.

I'm personally ordering a hazro tomorrow. Its gonna be good!

Well no 27" can get you 2560x1440 res...I was wondering if you could buy smaller and still have same.

Maybe FoV was teh wrong term im guessing, but the real estate is too valuable in my opinion and gives you ability to use more camera angles which would be very very restrictive on smaller monitors.
Yes. Only resolution matters. Every resolution sees the same amount vertically, and the horizontal is calculated from that. This means that 1920x1080 sees more than 1200, for example.

A 27 inch monitor with a 1920x1080p resolution looks fine. I am currently running a viewsonic led model, and am very pleased with it. A higher resolution might look better, but 1080p doesn't look bad. Op, you will be fine getting one.

Yes and yes. Big time.

The only 1440p monitors are 27", and it's a really big jump from 1080p IMO. The 1440p monitors are also IPS, and offer excellent color reproduction.

Here is an example of what it's like with my 27" iMac (1440p):



Or if you want a physical comparison of all the Dell Ultrasharp monitors:



If you are to get a 27", I highly recommend buying the dell ultrasharp, I've used one before and love it:

Hope this helped!

Have you ever seen one? The quality is worth the price IMO.

I picked up the Asus VE27Q over a week ago. My previous monitor was a 22" LG, so this was a pretty big transition. I gotta say it took some getting used to the new monitor. One thing I can say about the Asus is that it is a excellent monitor. The led lighting produces some very dark and even blacks, I was very impressed. The pixel size hasn't bothered me at all and makes reading text very easy on the eyes. Don't let anyone tell you 27" is too big for this resolution because its not, but I do feel you wouldn't want to go any bigger. I also ordered a Huey Pro to calibrate the colors and have been impressed with the results.

Hazro has some for 420 - 500 £

Same IPS panel in theirs, as in the dells U2711

But yeah, its definately worth the price.

after all, the monitor is what you're looking at all the time when using a pc

I am wondering, is a monitor like the Dell 27" too big to sit on your desk and sit right in front of? I've been looking at these, but wasn't sure if they were more for sitting further back and gaming or whether they would do fine on the desk with the keyboard right in fton of it. Thanks.
