Awesome, thanks for the fast reply De-Zant!
I should have been way more specific... I want the best picture quality possible, without ghosting, with minimal input lag, and at a price that's competitive with similar quality panels. The zr2740w was $600 and the U2711 was around $900, so that's the range for 27". Anything higher seemed like skipping straight to 30" would be best, not that such a thing would even fit on this desk. And 16:10 is a huge plus, but not absolute. I know I'm asking for about everything...
But I plan to use this for movies, gaming, and heavy desktop use, so its going to be used for everything. And when I buy electronics I buy them for a long time, so I have no problem with investing in a higher price, higher quality display that will last.
My 2407WFP was good, it lasted six years before the power supply board went on it. I am getting the PSB replaced for $35 so I can ditch this TN panel, and will have time to shop around for deals now. The HP zr2740w looked like a decent upgrade to this, the input lag was ~10ms instead of ~30ms (The 2409WFP had the worst, 60ms by one site), and despite the WLEDs the HP monitor has a slightly better color gamut than the 2407. But the U2711 has a higher quality display with a full color range with its CCFL, and costs more. I don't really care what panel type a monitor has as long as it's the best for image quality + gaming really.
There was a PLS Samsung out, but the review I saw had it performing/ghosting exactly like my PVA in their review of it. I really don't know anymore what monitor I should be looking for, just that if I'm going to fork out that much money it'd better be a damn good one!
I couldn't really notice any issue with the matte anti-glare on the zr2740, although without a picture actually on it I couldn't say for sure. I'm not a fan of glossy screens but the AG I've seen people talking about doesn't seem to bother me. If my zr2740w hadn't been doa I'd probably just have stuck to using it really.Edited by Kougar - 4/12/12 at 3:16pm
