To get the resolution for a 2560 wide screen, divide 2560 by the left hand number then multiply by the right hand number (in this case, 9) and that will give you the vertical lines.

Compressed, as in coming from a 27" 1440p monitor to get the same vertical resolution you would need some huge monstrosity.

But I also don't run triple 1440s for the same reason (size). I can 100% understand 21:9 for movies, but it still felt awkward and the LOD felt super wrong (probably because our eyes don't replicate images flatly, but rather radially outward) for games. Again, thats just me and to each their own.

Went ahead and ordered a Dell U2713HM yesterday, kind of excited, seeing as I've never tried anything beyond 1080p!
Is the difference really that big?

Too bad the site I bought it from ain't sending out their stuff during easter *sigh*.

I doubt many computer stores world wide would ship anything during easter holidays, here in Spain stores won't ship anything until Monday or Tuesday.

The difference is huge, I had a blast when I moved from 1080p to my U2711, you'll love it! biggrin.gif

I know exactly where you are coming from, and I agree that the 1080 vertical lines on the 29" displays is a total deal breaker for a lot of people that have moved to 1440p, not to mention the decreased density compared to the 27". I personally couldn't handle the .23mm pitch on the 1440s when doing stuff on the desktop, and a 30" 1600p was out of the question, and there was no point in another 23" or 24" 1920x1080 (or 1200) display, so I figured go crazy with the 21:9. biggrin.gif

And as for the density, once we get fully pixel independent scaling in OSes and programs I'll be fine with denser displays. My Nexus 7 is .11mm and it makes a perfect accessory display at the same viewing distance. But right now I don't see desktop displays getting much denser or increasing in resolution any time soon, unfortunately.

And yeah, a 21:9 3414x1440 .23mm pixel pitch display would be about 29" x 14" including the bezels. My 2560x1080 .27mm pitch is 27.5" x 12.5".

Hey everyone. I was trying to make a final choice on a 2560x1440 monitor. There are currently four I'm going to consider. SAMSUNG S27A850D (($799)), ViewSonic VP2770 (($759)), ASUS PB278Q (($649)), and Dell UltraSharp U2713HM (($629 if i order it right from Dell with a coupon)). I don't want to go over $800 on my purchase and care to consider any of the Korean monitors such as Catleap.

I use my computer for gaming and watching blu ray movies. ((Including using my PS3 from time to time.)) One of the biggest factors for me in a monitor is good realistic color. If a monitor has over saturated it really bothers me. The next thing I'd like is for there to be a good warranty so if something is wrong when I get my monitor I can have it replaced. This is why I won't consider any of the Catleap and such monitors.

The one monitor I'm wary of on my list is the ASUS PB278Q. I'm worried I might be sensitive to the PWM flicker. So any opinions on that would be appreciated.

I looked at the same monitors myself just recently. S27A850D, VP2770, PB278Q, & U2713HM.

PWM flickering: I went to a local retail store to see for myself if I could see PWM flickering on the PB278Q before I made a purchase. I nor my other family members did not see any flickering. I feel PWM flickering effects a very small minority of people who experience this and I could understand for those who do see flickering it would be unacceptable. It was a non-issue for me when deciding between these monitors. Either you see it or you never will and the PWM back lighting isn't an issue nor degrades the performance of the monitor.

Quality Assurance: Each monitor has their own issues and quality assurance problems. Albeit some have more qaulity issues than others but If you think about it, which ever monitor you decide on, you will return if there is an issue regardless until it's worthy. So I wouldn't focus on IF one has a worse or better track record. Why box yourself out of possibly a good monitor that might suit you better because it has better quality assurance and still might come to you defective regardless.

MenacingTuba did some testing on three of the above monitors for contrast, gamma, & color among others in this POST.
Quote:
Contrast
PB278Q>VP2770>S27A850D
Gamma
VP2770>PB278Q>>S27A850D
Color Temperature
S27A850D>VP2770>PB278Q


Very hard decision when all these monitors are all so worthy. Each have some things they do better than others but IMO none excelled at everything. My suggestion is to do Google searches on reviews for all the monitors. Read, read, read, and one will stick out at you. It took me two weeks of almost 24/7 homework to make my choice. I over thought it through with non-existent issues at first.

For me in the end it was between the U2713HM and PB278Q. The U2713HM was more expensive, comes with 2xUSB 3.0 ports, had better color range. The PB278Q dosen't have USB ports but came with every connector the monitor offers and those cords add up to the value of this monitor if you have to buy any of them.

The Viewsonic VP2770 is an excellent monitor from what I read in reviews. It has a slower response time than any of the monitors in specs but I guess it's very modest as it does better than specs listed in real world use. For me the V2770 price was was ultimately too much to justify since I'm not using my monitor for professional graphic design, Auto CAD, etc. where this monitor excels. I was more focused like you on gaming and watching blu-ray moves with main focus on gaming and watching movies secondary with no professional use.

I ended up choosing the ASUS PB278Q. Turns out I have one dark pixel on the entire monitor. As for back light bleed at 30% brightness is near perfect. 100% brightness does show back light bleeding. I set my display to 27% brightness all the time anyway. I posted my results HERE if you'd like to take a look. Still waiting on some OCN feedback on that actually.

IMO the PB278Q excelled in gaming where it counted most to me. Love the 'trace free' ASUS offers which takes care of over shoot and most of the motion blur which is eliminated, yielding a smooth and sharp image. thumb.gif

If it ain't broke, throw more GPU at it til it is.

It is noticeable in terms of screen real estate,but not as much when gaming (at least to my eyes). But to be honest, it wasn't as big as a jump as I imagined. 720-1080 was a huge leap for me, everything looked super crisp and sharp. 1080 to 1440p was not as momentous, but it is still great especially the IPS tech. I still love it, but never get yourself too hyped up lol.

PWM flicker can't be seen even by the majority of individuals that are affected by it...
