Also connections available might be slightly different, can't remember off the top of my head.

This. And the 23" is 1920x1080 (the 2311).

Once you get over the 24", and into the 27 and 30's...they get expensive REALLY quickly unless you buy one used somewhere.

Derick, you've got a PM, so we don't throw this thread too far off course. wink.gif

Size and resolution are the main ones, but the larger ones need more GPU power to push, and probably have more input lag and/or slower response? You'd have to check reviews as I'm not sure there, because that's not only a result of panel size but more. Someone commented that the larger ones are potentially affected worse by the effect of AG coating due to the higher PPI, although the higher PPI itself is an advantage, but also makes things smaller. The larger ones also cost more, and have more resolution/space. There's considerations either way to be sure.

I have an alienware computer right now. Yes I know its overpriced and blah blah blah, but I had way too many issues trying to make one myself (not a computer guru). Anywho, I have a DVI-D output on my video card, which I would like to be able to connect directly to the montor without using adapters. Also is resolution over 1920 x 1080 really nessecary if I am not planning on using photoshop?
post #14 of 42
Yes DVI-D works perfectly fine for connecting up to 2560x1600.

Resolution can be used for lots of things, not just photoshop. gaming at that resolution is absolutely breathe taking. Also multitasking is quite wonderful...

i got a hazro monitor (ships only from the UK though)

it has same size and same panel as the dell ultrasharp 27 inch..

i really love it

on top of that, it also looks a lot better smile.gif

Oh, and about 200 $ cheaper than the dell, if i compare the UK Hazro's price, with the Dells price here in Denmark

I can tell you this much.... 2560x1600 is absolutely AMAZING even in gaming or just regular old desktop use. The extra desktop space is so convenient. In gaming...I honestly don't need more than 2x AA in any game at all, as the pixels are so small already. The image is just incredibly detailed due to the pixel density.

Before you do ANYTHING, I suggest stopping by a store such as Best Buy, and comparing the screens yourself. For all you know, you might not be able to tell the visual difference between a $500 and $100 monitor of the same size. Might save you some $$ if your eyes are sub-par, like mine. I own a HannsG 25" el-$150-o and it works great for me!

The difference between 1920 x 1080 and 2560 x 1440/1600 is probably roughly like the difference between 1280 x 720 and 1920 x 1080, more or less? 1920 x 1200 also has greater "definition"; more detail level, than 1920 x 1080 (but loses FOV, as does 2560 x 1600). That's a decision for you to make.

All three of these monitors have DVI-D connections (at least two actually; at least mine does), plus others as well (VGA, HDMI, Display Port, Component, and Composite in the case of the UltraSharp U2410, and at least those and maybe more in the cases of the other two I'm guessing), and so do most modern LCDs have DVI (save mainly budget displays maybe).

Alright then 2560 x1600 is what i should look to obtain. However when I look up the 24" and 27" Ultrasharp monitors on dells website, the optimal resolution for the 24" is 1920x1200 and the 27" is 2560 x1400 at max resolution. How can I obtain the resolution that you guys/girls recommend? Am I forced to go to a 30"? I'm not sure that would be too big for me considering I play on an Asus 22" now, and am not enitrely sure how big would be big enough for my needs.

The only monitor that's 2560x1600 is the 30's. You'll have to figure out how big you really want to go. Like I said though, the 27" and 30" get expensive quickly, so that's another thing to take into consideration.
