27in 1920x1080 or 24in 1920x1080

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just a couple weeks ago I was deciding which 120hz monitor I was going to get until I found out that the XL2420T was going to be released now that I know it costs $400 Canadian without 3d glasses I am contemplating getting a 27in 120hz 1920x1080 screen like the Samsung S27A950D or the Asus VG278H because they come with 3D glasses and are only $100 more then then XL2420T with vision 2 glasses.

My only concerns are:

How good is 1920x1080 on a big 27inch monitor? is it pixely or stretchy looking at all?

I heard that nvidia 3d vision doesnt support the Samsung S27A950D and that it comes with its own glasses. Does anybody here know if the 3d is any good on this monitor. I know that 2d wise the samsung one is better then the asus one but I heard that in 3d the asus is better then the samsung.

or if 1920x1080 isnt that great for 27in monitors should I just screw it and get the 24in XL2420T?

Thanks for all of your help and opinions because I'm planning to buy something this weekend since I just got some extra money.

1920x1080 is a great resolution for 27" inch.

yah I was leaning towards the asus over the samsung because the asus is actually supported by nvidia 3d vision. the samsung one has a really nice sleek design though

Do you absolutely need 3D though? For that money and looking for 1080p, you might as well do what I did and grab a HDTV with an IPS panel. I've been using a 37" Panasonic for primary screen for well over a year now and the only thing I regret is not getting the 120Hz version back then. Some people find it hard to read text on a HDTV, but I've found it to be very adjustable.

well i guess I don't really need 3D but I was hoping for a 120hz monitor and I think they're all 3D anyway

if Anybody could fine a better deal here http://ncix.com/products/index.php?minorcatid=1003 I would appreciate it.

But it looks like if I want a 120hz monitor I'm going to be spending at least 300-400 dollars on a good one. If 120hz makes that much of a difference I'm all for it.
