Thanks for some "Non-Fermi 580 crazed delusions" and putting things back in perspective......you're both absolutely correct new 27" Dell now....new 580's "after the hype" ;) I never really was all that impressed with the "colors" displayed on my Sammy 1920 x 1200...ok but doesn't "pop".....is the Dell Display really that much better than the standard "run-of-the-mill" LCD's.....ooops..off topic....

Seriously...I have tested few Samsung, LG and Asus LED monitor at job and I wasn't impressed, so I was a little cold about getting a LED Dell, when he get here I fell in love. Simply, nothing more to say. If they do cheap computer, they have found how to make some of the best monitor out here. Also, something I realise is that the setting range seems larger so you are sure to find your eye candy setting. Just my opinion but well...you know that I not evil so As for the 480 and 580, Your 480's will be fine with this new screen so you can wait before to get 580

Edit : Ho and, why not to give us a MINI review of the screen? That would be nice no?

Well I ordered the U2711 as well. Hopefully Dell doesn't take too long to ship it out.

Maybe, just maybe, I'll run it side-by-side with my 27" Acer (TN panel) and take some pictures. We'll see how I feel though and if I can squeeze them onto my desk together.
