2560x1440 as middle monitor. - Page 2

post #11 of 23
dell u2711 has a one bright pixel return policy vs apple that has like 16 pixels before it can be returned. also the u2711 doesn't fall victim to the leak issues that i've seen with some apple 27" monitors.


alot of people adjust the monitor once, if at all, and then complain about the antiglare. play with the settings and see what works for you. i have different settings for CAD, photoshop, gaming, and browsing. personally i think under the right setting the white can get really bright. it's a great monitor

The main advantage of 3 monitors is I don't have to look left/right anymore. The action is still on the center screen you just use your peripheral vision on the side monitors.

2 21.5" monitors and one 27" Monitor yeah the middle will be taller, but it won't matter really.

What size do you recommend and how much are they?

go with the ACD if you want glossy, go with the dell if you want a matte.

Just got back from the store and looked at the ACD. First impression was how damn big the sucker was. Jesus its huge.

Second impression is how yellow all the colors looked

Third is I officially hate the glossy coat it looks terribad!


So Dell U2711 I will get. My next quest is can someone provide me a link to a triple Monitor stand that can hold 2 21.5" monitors and 1 27" monitor.

My 3 21.5" Barely fit on my desk. Taking one away and swapping it with a 27" will push another one off my desk completely.

You could have the middle one as 5760x1080 with the 1080p ones around it, but you might have to keep switching setting all the time. For a 2560x1440 monitor, you would have to get something with the same ppi (pixels per inch) as your 1080p ones, or else it will look off. Theres also the problem of scaling.

well I would eventually upgrade to 3 Dell U2711s so the PPI will be moot.
