@OP - I would go with the 27" HP IPS.

No. Do not do that. The HP might be the best 2560x1440 model for gaming, but it is far from the best in terms of image editing and video editing.

The dell u2711 beats it in those applications, even by saving you the headache of messing with color profiles and such, since the HP model lacks OSD

Well. That facts speaks for it self.

There are plenty of games that does not support 16:10 leaving 16:10 users with a letterbox. And the amount of games that lack 16:10 support are increasing rapidly! It is just a matter of time before most games wont support 16:10.




Some examples of games that does not support 16:10.

2009
Mirrors Edge

2010
Blacklight: Tango Down
WRC FIA World Rally Chamionship 2010

2011
Assassins Creed Brotherhood
Alice: Madness returns
Bastion
Bulletstorm
Driver: San Francisco
Dungen Siege 3
Dungeons
Gatling Gears
Ghostbusters: Sanctum Of Slime
Limbo
Monday Night Combat
Ninja Blade
Pro Evulotion Soccer 12
Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
Shank
Splinter Cell: Conviction
Witcher 2 (Before patched after many months)


And if you use a 16:10 display and dont get a letterbox you have lost field of view (1) or have a deformed picture (2). All three scenarios are things you would like to avoid.

1. Loss in Field Of View


2. Deformed picture

Even Windows 8 are made for 16:9.

hydros that is is off topic, mostly misinformed, and irrelevant for the OP.

Thread Starter 
Thanks so much guys for your input . I will be playing BF3 alot......like every day i can lol. I have read other reviews regarding the input lag of this monitor. People have said that in all their games (fast paced ones like COD, BF:BC2) they felt a bit delayed. I dont want this to happen. I have an RGB LED screen on my laptop (dell studio xps) which is stunning and i notice the difference all the time. I do photo editing on this too.

Is the Dell U2711 or its little bro "that" bad for gaming? Would i notice delay compared to my current one you reckon? Its alot of money to be spending if it only suits most my needs. I would love a monitor that is as beautiful as this aswell as being awesome for gaming.

I dont mind any recommendations .

It's mostly that some people hate it, like myself, and some people can't even notice it, or don't mind it. It's difficult to know before you try. But mostly, it's going to be noticeable if you use twitch motions in FPS games. Other than that, i can't say if you would personally notice it.

Well if you don't mind to calibrate your monitor through software, and be prepared to deal with plenty of headaches using color profiles on applications to get accurate colors on a wide gamut display, the HP ZR2740w would have low input lag, be cheaper than the u2711, and be 2560x1440 IPS.

If you do not want to do either of the previously suggested things, you could also consider low input lag screens within the srgb space such as the dell u2412m and HP ZR24W and HP ZR2440w, which all have low input lag, which would be nice for gaming, are IPS, somewhat decent, but of course static image wise won't be as good as the u2410 or u2711 in most situations (though the u2412m has a better black levels than the two) (Check TFTCentral reviews on these to get better info)

There is an inherent compromise between IPS panels and TN panels. IPS panels are much better at color reproduction and viewing angle. TN panels tend to be better at response time - 6ms versus 2ms is probably the average for today's generation of H-IPS panels. This means that by comparison you may notice a bit of ghosting or input lag, but the 6ms response time is what TN monitors just a couple of years old were boasting as a high end spec. At the end of the day you will need to make a compromise either way. Will you live with lousy color fidelity and a poor viewing angle for lightning fast gaming response, or are you prepared to live with possibly a little ghosting in the fastest pace games by comparison to a 2ms TN panel. Personally, I only play WoW and don't notice any issue with input lag or ghosting, although I'd be unlikely to with this game.

Response times mean squat. The input lag and ghosting should be analyzed separetely, on a panel to panel basis, otherwise recommending panels based on speed is not going to work at all.

Every panel is of course different and needs to be analyzed separately, but the generality that IPS panels suffer from more input lag and ghosting than TN panels holds true.
