but since i started with 1920x1200 monitors im just gonna go with 1200x1920 - 1920x1200 - 1080x1920. they all cost me about $450 over 5 months. the 1080 is in transit $145 shipped. $20, $30, $200, $150 here and there isnt as painful as $600-700. lol
if im gonna spend $700 then i might as well spend $900 on a new item with a warranty. the last thing i wanna do is hand some guy on craiglist $600 then backlight goes out in 2 weeks. i think im a good guy but i can quickly turn into a craigslist killer.
or just go out and randomly kill someone.

Why did you go 1080p for the last monitor? It seems like it would make a lot more sense to get another 1200p screen, as they don't tend to be that much more.

i went with 1080 coz its gonna be wall mounted either on top of the 1200p in landscape or top slightly left in portrait mode running the small programs like IM's, music players, utorrent, and all other little programs that i can stack up-down.

the other hp 1200 is in portrait mode too.


$148 shipped.

Thread Starter 
I have been scouring ebay and craigslist for a couple days now. I cant find a single high end monitor on Craigslist in my area or even in Florida. I looked for U3011, U2711, 3007 and found nothing. Ebay is more promissing as I have found a couple monitors that I am interested in. My only financial options would be a U2711 or 3007 on ebay. I mainly game but may get into graphic design and video editing. Would it be better to pay a little more for the 3007 even though it is older for the higher rez or the U2711 because it is newer and a little cheaper? Are these monitors regularly put on ebay so I should wait for a good deal or is it rare to have these monitors on ebay and should buy now if I can? Thanks

I'm currently running 1200x1900 and 1900x1200.
I love the 1200x1900 vertical setup for websites, documents, etc.

Note: I highly recommend 1200x1900 when going vertical instead of 1080 - the reason is there are quite a few websites that are more than 1080 wide now.. and having a left right scroll bar when reading a website sucks.



With photoshop I run all the tool pallets, etc in the vertical the the graphic on the main.

That said.. I need more pixels. I think I'm going to replace the 1900x1200 with 2560x1600.

Anyone have any opinions on the (newegg) $1230 HP ZR30W vs. $1380 Dell 301??
(the original reason I opened this thread )

As for the gent who was asking about how to put the monitor vertically; if your monitor uses a VESA plate on the back - You can go buy an arm at your local office supply store that mounts to a desk and then you can rotate/pivot/etc as you want. That's what I use on the back of my acer which had a non-adjustable stand when stock. This particular arm was made by 3M and it was less than $100 at the local office depot.

I just went and snapped a photo to show you what it looks like:



Here's a photo of my current setup:



p.s. I hate the samsung. The color is horrible and the screen is inconsistent. Move your head around and you can watch the colors change -ugh.

@topgeek:

The U3011 and ZR30w are virtually identical in image quality. Each one edges out over the other in different tests, but side by side you can't really see the difference. So what it comes down to is if you want less input lag (HP), or more control+features+inputs+warranty (Dell).

And by the way, if you want a really good monitor to use vertically, go for the Dell 2007FP. It's 1600x1200 (so vertically it becomes 1200x1600), and lines up perfectly with a 30" screen. It's pretty expensive new, but you can find them on ebay for $100 and change.
