apple has the higher resolution, but I despise them as a company...
you can't really call this fanboism, more of just pure loathing for that company, i have my reasons... they're not without merit to myself...
but yah going from the pics alone, the apple does have a better pic, and the rez, but...
its apple xD

It seens the apple does have a better image quality, as its an ips panel, but since u said u could use the cash u can get selling it, Id just sell the apple since the samsumg doesnt look too shabby either.

Sell them both and buy a 30" <nudge>

BUT...picking between those two choices I'd take the Apple. As much as I, like others, don't like them as a company, it's not like you're supporting them by choosing to keep it instead of sell it. You already gave them their money for it, so what's done is done. And since it's the better monitor out of the two it would be my choice.

In reality though, my first choice would be to sell them both and get a 30" IPS (size DOES make a difference ).
My second choice would be to use them both in a dual screen setup.
Third choice would be to sell the Samsung.

I think the idea is that you make your own thread for your own problems and post in this one about the OP's problems?

OP - I'd keep the Apple. Unfortunately, Apple seems to have a bad rap on these forums, but their screens are pretty decent - much better than TN screens, in any case, and at RRP are by no means overpriced. Asking OCN to decide for you is really just not helping - you've not given any model information, barely anyone on OCN has any experience with either specific screen (although many have had experience between IPS and TN). Personally, I've moved from a 20" TN to a 30" IPS and have loved every minute, but the image quality might not be so important to you.

If I were you, I'd weigh up how much better the image quality is on the Apple (it should be significantly better than on the Samsung) and weigh up the difference in price you'll get for either. Personally, I'd say it's worth the expenditure, but what do I know. Or, go with Manyak and get a 30". You won't look back.
