post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok Heres The Deal:
I want a new monitor because my Samsung T240HD is getting old. I need something bigger and better so heres what i have narrowed it down to. Either the Dell U3011 or the Samsung MD230X3. The Dell is a 30" 2560x1600 and the Samsung is 3 Ultraslim 23" Monitors. If anyone has either of these monitors or eyefinity, which one do you prefer? Thank you so much!

I would go with the Dell. I think most people get annoyed with multi-monitor setups after a short amount of time.

Untrue. Majorly so. Most love it, not hate it.


I'd go with the dell u3011 because all in all, it's a hugely better screen, and eyefinity is not nearly as immersive in my opinion. (unless it's 3x portrait) Though if you play a lot of FPS games, the input lag on the dell might bother you, in which case you could always go HP ZR30w.

Maybe if said person didn't use the 2nd monitor for anything other than just being able to say they had a 2nd monitor.
APU what?
