You really need to explain more of your usage and desires before we continue.
Okay. Most of what I do is net browsing, video watching, word processing, much Photoshop and 3D work, and very occasional gaming.

When working, I like having my workspace on one screen, all the tools and dialogue boxes on another, and I generally use the third for folder/file managements and things like music and videos. (I've attached a screenshot of my current screen layout for reference)

In terms of my digital artistry, I've never seen the need for an IPS screen. We don't use them at work, even though you might say it would be necessary, seeing the kind of work we do. The 3d school I attended had nothing but IPS screens, but not once did I ever wish I could use those screens elsewhere, apart for reasons of size (they had Dell u27s and u30s... the sheer size of the 30s is droolworthy).

Just my own peeve... how to power these monitors is my problem; it's not something we need to waste dime discussing.

Are there any disadvantages to just having them on a desk? That's what I was planning on doing.

Well sounds like you know you don't particularly "like" IPS, so no use going there. You'll save money too.

You say too small for a 24" monitor? K. Is 27" 16:9 or 16:10 28" okay for you? You might see if any sites you can order from hold the SCEPTRE X270W monitor. It's good for the size. If not, you can also see if you can find the Hanns•G HH-281HPB. Newegg holds neither of these. The sceptre has a superior panel though.


If 25" is your preference
You could always go with two of http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236123 as well. From what I hear, the quality of that screen is quite good as well, though not have seen it myself. You could use your current I-Inc as the third screen, or just buy three of what I linked.

I suffer from OCPD; having one monitor be an odd one out would be fingernails across the blackboard of my soul.

However, I've discovered my budget isn't as restrictive as I though, and if I play my cards right, carefully, I could afford .

They seem to be the same as what you linked, plus two inches.

Though, seeing they're 1920x1080, I'm now wondering at what point the size of the screen has a detrimental effect on image quality... I've never used a 27" or larger screen with less than... what is it, 2450x1600...? resolution.

^that monitor got a few issues you should know about. Mostly, the dark levels aren't the best there is, and there's a slight green tint, though the colors are generally vibrant.

Cnet has some comments on it http://reviews.cnet.com/lcd-monitors...ml#reviewPage1

Though, other users have commented directly on that review, saying that what it says is far from the truth.

Aside from those issues, people seem to agree that this monitor produces a good image with vibrant and semi-accurate colors, has little ghosting, sharp text, and such.

If you are used to 25" 1080p, 27" at the same resolution isn't going to bother you. It'd only bother people who were used to 21.5" or so.

Good. One of my monitors now is actually too dark. Annoys me to no end.

Reviewer probably got a dud, then.

Good. As I've said, color accuracy isn't a big deal; I've come this far without anyone making note of the colors I use in things.

Okay, looks like those 27s are my choice then. Thanks for all your feedback.

Just wanted to point out why I went with Dell's U2211H, not just because it was IPS. The main reason was that it is very flexible and adjustable. You can do vertical or horizontal, whenever you want. At least it gives you the option to change around for what you need.

In this case, the OP clearly wants size. And since he has experience with (high end) IPS and does not care f or it, it'd be a safe bet to say that he won't be satisfied with the U2211h, being a 21.5" display.
