I know, it's coz my budget is flexible or, rather, undecided. The higher resolution is tantalising, so I think I'll go with that, and yes Korean coz I couldn't justify paying 3 times that.

How is that possible if there are 1080p tvs of 65"?

You dont look at 65inch tv's from a distance of half a meter do you?tongue.gif
You watch it from a fair distance.
Thats why 27inch screens also come in 1080p. Its not that bad because you will look at it from a good distance. Up close the pixels are big ofcource.

Dont make this a huge problem for your choice.

Just my 0.02$. Buy a computer monitor, not a television for computer - non gaming use. Why? I don't think there is a single TV that is designed to be looked at from 1 meter distance while you do word or excel or similar work.

Also 1600p makes a huge difference.

I assume, the monitor will be placed on a desk, with about 0.5-0.8 meter distance, A TV would be a a couple meters away, more like 5.

OK, thanks a lot guys. I'm going to take the plunge. Now I just have to decide which Korean 30"er. I'm thinking only DVI-D input so as to keep the price down and it is only ever going to be attached to a desktop PC. But should I gamble on non-perfect pixel???? Arrgh?!

Yeah, but I thought the further away the more pixels you needed, so that up close a 27" at 1080p would be really sharp. Have I got it the wrong way around?

What korean 30" monitors you got there? I would go with a HP and 5 year extended warranty.

I thought everyone is buying the same various Korean offerings on ebay: Crossover, Shimian, Yamakasi and so on.

I can't afford an HP.

ditto, 1440p i think is the minimum for me now, moving forward.

HDTVs are not meant to be used as computer monitors, their DPI is terrible and meant to be viewed a few feet away from a couch.

The ebay specials make nice monitors. I picked up an Auria for myself a few months ago which I game with. I have a 27" iMac in the office and the office apps are a pleasure to use with crisp text.

There isn't much point in getting a super high end one if you really won't use it or take advantage of it.

Just find a cheap korean 1440p with no dead pixels and call it a day.
