Anyways OP I recommend the HannsG's for 27" on the cheap.
As a person who is generally pretty sensitive to "crap" and as such researches his purchases thoroughly beforehand because he hates to waste his hard earned money on said "crap" AND
most of the same things as most everyone on OCN, I personally ran a single 27.5" Hanns-G HH281 for a little over a year and just a couple months ago grabbed two more for Eyefinity without even considering what else might be available on the market because I was that happy with them AND
they were cheap
I have yet to have a SINGLE
problem with any of my 3x HH281s, and if one did fail I wouldn't hesitate to buy another.
And just to be well-rounded and fair... the stand can be a little wobbly, the built-in speakers suck and I wish they were LED
Sadly, asking for recommendations on a monitor is a bit akin to asking for recommendations on a mouse, your going to hear nothing but opinions when the truth is it's different strokes for different folks. The Hanns-G monitors (at least the HH281s)
are a perfectly fine product for gaming or most anything else you'll ever want to do on your computer. A good number of people love to hate on them, but in all honesty, I think they get a bad rap for much the same reason AMD does:
... they fill a niche at a budget price, and as such are seen by those who happily pay more for a name (and usually same specs) as "low end crap". Edited by Slave One - 10/28/11 at 8:25pm
