Basically if you care about image quality avoid the U2410/U2711. Owners will defend it until they get a good display thumb.gif If you want the extra inputs get the HP ZR2440w

A 24" 1200p and 27" 1440p display are actually pretty close in terms of size. I'd go with the Yamaski Catleap Multi or ACHIEVA Shimian QH270-IPSMS from ebay if you want the best image quality, as long as you don't mind a glossy displays reflections. Below is an image of the U2711 next to the U2410

Either you put up with reflections or the severely grainy matte anti-glare coating which all the matte 16:10 24" and 16" 27" IPS panels use.

Please don't. I did this and regret it every bit. I'm now selling 3 monitors and buying a U2711.

This. I got a U2410 and I hate it. Yellow to one side, blue to the other. Dim on one side. Hums unless the brightness is above 80, and the brightness that high is like reading the wattage on a light bulb while it's on.

the u2410 ain't getting any good press. i see what you mean the 24" and the 27" screens are not that much of a difference in size. i would have to buy a more powerful graph card/s to run games on it at higher resolutions.

The HP ZR2440w sounds pretty cool, I'll do some reading on it and see whats what.

The Yamakasi Catleap Q270 SE 27" LED, funny how there are no reviews on it, grr, but these screens do look amazing i have to admit, who woulda funked it to OC a monitor. Blimey a south Korea delivery schedule via ebay. Are these monitors that good, and good for gaming, and watchng HD movies on?
