Nice, I got one myself. Hoping for a dual setup shortly since I feel triple will be too wide for my uses right now.

Well i got my monitors and love them to bit's really nice. Then only downside i have run into eyefinity is with distortion on the side monitors but there is not much i can do about that as it's a nature of the method how game engines render scenes. Also mass effect 2 doesn't support eyefinity.

In regards to getting 2 monitors. the one issue i ran into that in FPS games is that your crosshair is usually buried by the bezel with 2 monitors.

Hows the anti-glare coating on it? I was almost set to buy one from Dell during their sale but held back after finding numerous reports of the panels having a bit too much AG coating and end up causing uneven light distribution

Didn't notice any problems with that either (I bought mine a month ago)... but then again, I haven't been looking specifically for uneven colours

better can be subjective. Ir depends on what your comparing it to. For connectivity i think the 2311 wins out since it has vga/dvi/dp so it's popular with eyefinity users. but the aspect ratio is only 16x9 which some people don't like. I don't notice to much bad bleeding but then again i have 3 so there is alot of extra light in my room. When it comes down to it. it's probably the cheapest ips panel monitor with native display port and a 3 year ultrasharp warranty.
