You've got to remember, when you move the monitor farther back it's apparent size is smaller than when it's up close. So even though the pixels are a tiny bit larger, the extra foot or two of distance is going to offset it, and then some. So in reality you'll probably end up seeing smoother edges after all. Hell, worst case you can always bump AA up one notch and be done with it. Plus, even if you ignore distance for a second, if you compare the pixelation to the overall size of the image the pixelation is relatively smaller because the image is so much larger, and so many more pixels are being used to draw the same line.

If you want my personal opinion, yes I think 30" panels are worth every damn penny, and since you can afford one there's no reason not to buy it.


And 400,000 pixels is a LOT to lose, personally I wouldn't give them up . If you're on a 30" and want the wider aspect in games you can always set the resolution to 2560x1440 yourself, but if you're on a 27" monitor and want some more vertical headroom you're out of luck. And there's actually a very noticeable size difference between 27" 16:9 and 30" 16:10. You're talking about 311 sq.in vs 432 sq.in - that's a 38% increase in size (or a 28% decrease depending on how you want to look at it). Either way it's quite a large difference. IMO, between that and the vertical resolution you give up too much for pixels that are only 7% smaller.

You bring up some great points, this is exactly the discussion I needed to assure myself before dropping that money on a 30".

That also makes sense about the monitor being farther back, which I will need to do only because I'm assuming there will be a point where I can't get it any closer without breaking my neck
I plan on running full eye candy, 4xAA and getting 44-96 FPS range (min-max) in BC2 which is my game of choice right now.

So you've pretty much cleared up any doubts I have on 30" and 2560x1600 being what I want and being sufficient for gaming.



It seems that tiny bit of extra input lag and slightly larger dot pitch, even for gaming, is pretty negligible here.

Thanks, it gives a good perspective. I like the bench, and your desk setup.

Offtopic question, with monitors like that, how is the lower octave reproduction?

Here's the shot you wanted:

30" Center, two 20" on sides


One of the side monitors has changed since taking that shot but yeah.

I love my ZR30w...LOVE IT!

I have also used the comparable Dell monitors and didn't like them compared to the HP.

I couldn't ever go down in monitor size now, I tried playing on my buddies 24" the other day and it just seemed so small.



Good comparison next to the c700D

Oh man this makes me so stoked

Order of operations just calls for my new PSU and case which will set me back a little over $300 and then I gotta sell the old PSU and u2211h and then I can get the monitor...screw going from dual to tri channel lol, that can wait.

In what aspect did you like the ZR30w more? Gaming?

Yeah I have a feeling this will be even more amazing than when I went from my 19" 1280x1024 to u2211h

I was a little worried about the input lag I've read about on other 30" screens, so I choose the zr30w. As someone who can see the FPS drop down from 60 to 58 without a FPS counter up, I can say the input lag is not noticeable on this screen. It's great for gaming .

I'm colorblind so I shouldn't talk about how good the colors are, but they seem good to me. Just for the piece of mind for the gaming aspect, I'd suggest spending a little more and getting the HP.

OH man just about everything, the color is just amazing in comparison.

Gaming - mostly this because I am a gamer
photos
Movies
etc

The lag is not even noticeable if there even is any I can not tell.

haha are you saying you've just become so accustomed to what FPS looks like what that you can see that minimal of a FPS drop, or are you cheating and turning on vsync on a 60hz and saying you notice the tearing when FPS isn't fast enough for refresh


hahaha that reminds me of my dad, colorblind and says similar things.


Thing is, it's not spending a little more, and more like spending $400 more at least. I could use that $400 to get me a new keyboard, mouse+pad, and soundcard and then be ready to get my new speakers and have an entirely complete setup
Ugh lol.

Damn, I wonder if there is anywhere I can find these both on display to compare. I'll call up frys, I don't remember seeing any 30" there but maybe.
