Is the price of a Dell Ultra Sharp or other comparative 2560x1440 worth it? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Microcenters in New York definitely don't carry them, but if I'm sure you've seen the Apple Cinema Displays, and alot of stores have that. That will give you an idea of what IPS monitors look like.

good luck finding an IPS monitor on display. by the way, you seriously cant go wrong getting one. however i suggest buying it from dell's refurbished line, on their website dell outlet. i got the dell u3011 (30inch) for only $900 including tax and shipping. comes with 3 year warranty. if u are patient u can wait to find the 27inch / 24 inch / 30 inch ultra sharps which are all 3 IPS monitors refurbished for cheap.

The single best purchase I ever made, computing related, is my 30" S-IPS panel. The resolution, 2560x1600, gives me lots of room on the desktop, the panel is beautiful, and gaming is a utter delight.

Single best purchase.

I have the U3011, and hands down, it is the best thing I have bought for my computer. I do some light gaming on it and don't notice any ghosting or lag. Everything about it is just better than with cheaper monitors. What I noticed first is how pink the whites are on my Samsung monitor. You really don't know how much better it is until you get a TN panel right next to an IPS.
