Seems, but isn't. You shouldn't think in terms of size -- I stopped thinking about that when I went from a 24" 1650x1050 to a the 23.5" AW2310. The Catleap is huge at 27", almost too big. I'd prefer a 24-25" at 2560x1440 to be honest, but they don't exist. This 27" uses up the best of my peripheral vision; I wouldn't be able to really see any more screen area if I had it. Any further back, and it wouldn't be very pleasurable to use.
Also, there's no backlight bleed. I'm not sure what you're seeing, but I can't see any real backlight bleed on a perfectly black screen -- it was one of the first things I checked. You might be seeing flash reflection from the tempered glass or something. My AW2310 has noticeable backlight bleed, though, ironically.

I know these monitors sound too good to be true, but they're not. They're a steal, really.

Well, we'll see, my peripheral vision is quite good, but yes, I've oft thought the idea of looking left and right during a game would kind of suck. tongue.gif

I'll look into it.

27'', 2560 x 1440(sad no 1600p, but oh well!)

Thing I don't like is 16:9. I just feel like moving from 16:10 to 16:9, I'm still losing real estate, even with the bigger size & resolution.

If I can get 100HZ, for sure, @ 2560 x 1400p, then I guess I'd be pretty happy. For about 450$, and you say it's guaranteed, then I'm quite torn on the idea.

Picked up my slightly older 30 inch 2560*1600 monitor for 400,- euro's second hand. I'd say that is a steal compared to it's original price.

And as long as you're moving up on the resolution scale, then you aren't losing anything when it comes to going to 16:9

I'm slightly in the same boat. I really do like my 27" 1080p monitor. I have a very deep desk, so it really doesn't look that large, especially now that I am use to it. I think I am more interested in 120hz than resolution at this point, but I really don't want to sacrifice size to do it.

Those catleaps are very tempting, but I lived with a 22" Acer monitor that had a couple dead pixels on it for three years, I'll never do that again.

Don't care if it's TN. Give us a reasonably priced 30'' monitor already ,peoples!.
If Samsung can do it, they'll take a large share of the Monitor market.

No, I dont think they will as long as the 30" monitors are 16:10 which will make the average consumer to look at 16:9 options like 2560x1440 or 3840x2160 instead.

Hopefully there will be 3840x2160 32" monitors available within a few years but it will be expensive like all high end electronics.

2012 appears to be the year for 27" 2560x1440.

The reason for 30" monitors being expensive is purely and simply because it is a niche product for a very small market, for which all of the panels are manufactured by one company, LG. This is enough to drive the costs up far higher than what they potentially could be.

I would not predict consumer class 3840x2160 in the next few years.

The pixeldensity on the 30" is way to low!

For 30" you need higher resolution than 2560x1600.

The difference between 1440p and 1600p models in terms of pixel density is not significant. All consumer class desktop LCDs out at the moment have mediocre pixel density. If you're going to say pixel density on 30" models is low, 27" models have it pretty bad too.

You cannot compare a true 120hz TN panel from a good company, or a 1440p IPS, to the price of Plasma TV that has terrible picture quality. I tend to buy a new monitor every year, and while I wish the tech would advance faster, it is moving forward quite a bit, from year to year.
Edit: On the subject of advancing panels. LG is "supposed" to have a 120hz IPS out later this year. Another company is supposed to be showing a 4K x Something, res monitor, also later this year.

Plasma looks better than any LCD Tech I've seen, IPS screens included. 4k Res monitor I can live without, that won't be playable for quite a few years on current GPU's. I hooked my PC up to my 50'' Plasma and it looked amazing, stunningly smooth, no input lag, no blur, no ghosting, ect. But I can't do that all the time as it's in a different room. I was just saying.

Yes, the pixel density is something to be concerned about.

I don't see why there can't be a 120HZ, 30'', 2560 x 1600, 2ms or less LCD / LED, for 800$ or less. These prices have been stagnant far to long.

Plasma is better for TVs under the right lighting conditions as a TV yes. Better handling of motion as well as a higher contrast. But there are reasons for why it's not used in desktop monitors. These include it being difficult to make a small sized high resolution plasma as well as the potential for burn in when used as a desktop monitor (which is nowadays difficult to cause if you're just looking at non-pc content on it).

Plenty of people sell 30"ers used. It's a great way to get half price off of an item if you otherwise can't afford it.

If I could find a U3011 for 550$, used, I'd certainly buy it. No scratches on the main screen would be the requirement obviously.
