~30" 1440p Monitor

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm looking forward to buying a new monitor that'll act as a TV and a PC monitor. I've been having my eyes set on Asus PB278Q and Dell U2713HM but they both are 27" models and I'm afraid that's a tad too small for the TV purpose. Now I'd like to know if there are some bigger screens at around the same price point. I don't need anything fancy, I don't do hardcore gaming so 60 Hz is enough, no G-SYNCs needed, doesn't have to be the fastest response time and IPS is only a big plus. Does this monitor exist or does the price blow up in those few inches or is it just a small demand? Thanks for every input!

You could easily pick up an amazon warehouse deal (returned/repackaged) on a u3011 or u3014 close to the same price as a u2713hm.

Well that's one idea, but I'm not sure how the shipping for used stuff goes to my country. Have to look into that.

Anyway, that sounds much like there are no 30-32 inch screens at the same price point than 27 screens? Those products seem to be double the cost when new.

There are some cheaper brands. I know Yamasaki makes some relatively cheap 2560x1600 30" monitors.

If I wanted a TV/Monitor combo, honestly I'd buy a 42" 1080p plasma. It isn't 1440p, but Plasma's superiority to any LCD more than makes up for it.

There are also some suprisingly cheap 39" 4k TVs. They use a nice VA panel too.

Are those cheaper brands worth it in the end, I mean are they as good quality in picture and build?

42" might be a little too big, when I'm using it for PC stuff I'm sitting pretty close to it and the apartment is quite small as well. How are the response times, color accuracy, viewing angles etc. in TVs then?

Plasmas are in a whole different league in terms of response times and color accuracy, viewing angles are similar. LCD TVs are similar to monitors. Unfortunately you can't get 1080p in plasmas smaller than 42" sad-smiley-002.gif

In most cases, the cheaper brands use the exact same LCD panels the more expensive brands use, though I'm not sure what is/isn't available in Finland.

Well that's a shame, the plasma sounded pretty nice. I have to see if I can make do with a 27" screen since it clearly is the most simple option. Gotta look at those cheaper brands as well. I know Amazon ships to Finland, but I don't know if there's a different policy for those Warehouse Deals.

Is this available in Finland?

I know 39" seems massive, but it actually has the same pixel density as a 20" 1080p monitor. It uses a nice VA panel for better blacks than IPS, and it's 4k! It's cheap for what it is, and I believe it can do 1440p @ 60hz or 1080p @120hz.

Wow that's an amazing deal. Can't find a shop that sells it here, but maybe shipping could be possible. It doesn't list 1440p as an option though and I'm pretty sure my single GTX 660 runs out of power pretty quickly at 4K. Very intriguing anyway...

There might be a different brand over there, anything 4k/39" should use the exact same VA panel as the Seiki.

Same goes for 1440p or 1600p monitors, pretty much all the (reasonably priced) ones use the same LG IPS or Samsung PLS panels, so you shouldn't worry about brands too much.
