Hi what would be a reliable brand for 27" LCD monitor,been having 20" Dell this past 6 years and this one has proven to be a a true quality monitor. I would like to get something with good quality but in a size of 27". Also an input over which brands shoul I avoid,thanks.smile.gif

I'd had good experiences with Dell, HP, and Samsung..I'm sure Asus is probably fine also. Reliability, when it comes to monitors...seems very random...I think most of the damage happens in shipping...

Monitor leaves manufacturer (passing QA 100%) > ships to vendors > ships to your location....after traveling hundreds of miles...it comes down to luck imo. Though some brands do seem to be more prone to the problem due to build quality.

As for the best 27" monitor..if you are gaming..than Samsung s27a750D imho (as long as your graphic card has a DisplayPort). If no DP, Samsung s27a950D. If gaming isn't your focus..than a 27" Dell or HP IPS monitor with high resolution....

Every company makes high and low end. I for one love my ViewSonic. Not the highest end, but good color once set up and good response time. $$/inch was killer when I got it. I have seen the Samsung suggested above and can vouch for how nice it looks. Also, what resolution are you looking for? 27" can be had in 1920x1080 - 1920x1200 - 2560x1440.

27" ViewSonic VX2739wm $215 shipped. Note this is refurb, but I have never had to send/take anything back to geeks. Built my entire first rig there.
It's so little!

that ViewSonic looks awesome for that price, but since its refurbished I doubt there is any warranty included with it, also I was looking at the Acer 27" the one thats thin, but so far I heard a lot of people complaining about their customer support... Seems that ASUS gives good 3 year warranty on their monitors + their CS has always been descent.

I'm looking into 1920x1080 with possibly not higher rate than 2ms,I like to game so.....
