Do I need 1440?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I see that a lot of folks are getting the 1440 monitors from overseas. I am looking to get a new monitor and want an IPS panel. I do a lot of Photoshop, Premiere, Visual Sutdio and very little gaming. Should i get a 1440 screen? Or is the main advantage of 1440 for gaming?

I would actually say with what you are doing, you need one of those monitors more than people mostly using it for gaming.

Increased color quality is dramatic, and will be a great aid for photo AND video editing work. The increased clarity of 1440 will definitely give you a better sense of detail work.

Make sure you are spending smart tho. Don't worry about any OC or overclocked monitors. They cost almost twice as much, and it's not a feature you need.

That is what you are looking for. Available domestically (in the US) with the Korean part cost, and with a good warranty and decent shipping time.

It says out of stock, but I think they are shipping them weekly now, as it used to be listed as "backorder" and unavailable for order.

Any other questions and I'll see what I can help ya with.

For a price comparable to some of the higher end TN panels at the same size and 1080 resolution, it really is a good solution for you.

i agree with Zyrael. i purchased the overlordcomputer in that link he has and it is one AMAZING monitor. too bad there isn't much stock now (hopefully it really gets going) i'm really debating on waiting for two more, or just finding 2 other ones.... its painful to figure out!

but back on topic... the 1440p is night and day different. the crispness and clarity is just different from other panels. its my first IPS.. i was used to my old tn monitor and my laptop monitors... even my dad's tablet or my cell phone had better screens than those monitors. the 1440p is just so insane in color, brightness and clarity that it is hard to get anything else. for gaming it made me just watch things instead of playing it.. lol. its just that mind blowing gorgeous. after awhile of use you get too used to it and dont notice it's awesomeness UNTIL you use another computer/monitor again and you hate it so much because of what new 1440p you have experienced.

it really is one heck of monitors... i think its the same feeling when 1080p first came out.. its just the natural affordable step up for now. i have to say i am very very happy with my purchase, and i would suggest going with overlord as well, but either way you can't lose on what you do. it is my best single purchase that is probably rivaling an upgrade from hdd to ssd. its just a big leap of what you are used to and it is worth every penny.

and have i mentioned, when people see my monitor and think "oh its just a big screen" but turn it on and SEE the resolution, they are all BLOWN AWAY.

Thanks for the detailed info. The other screen i ad looked at which looks interesting but is only 23 inch and is 1080 is the new LED IPS panel from Viewsonic which seems to have great user reviews on the egg and amazon.
