Changing plans to a single 27 inch monitor - Page 2

cheapo, crappy TN panel with poor resolution and contrast.

Wait wait.. isn't contrast ratio a marketing gimmick? I don't think you should really base your purchase there..

I used a 2333HD and a T260HD, nothing noticeable until side by side comparison.. higher pixel density generally gave me a sharper image and slightly better colors on the smaller monitor [2333HD].. (Both TN panels and made by Samsung, IIRC)

but wouldn't trade the T260 HD if I had the chance since the larger monitor on the same distance from eyes gave me an overall better "immersion" feel.

If you really want to see a difference maybe get an IPS or PVA panel w/c are usually more expensive.
