other s-ips opition
yesterday i search for s-ips lcd if other opition is available..

i only found a few (26+ monitor)

- ViewSonic VP2655wb 800cdn... just 50cdn extra with 16:10 compare to u2711's 16:9 for 750
Quick Review: ViewSonic VP2655wb 25.5-inch LCD Monitor :: TweakTown USA Edition ( compare to u2711 review at Quick Review: Dell UltraSharp U2711 27-inch LCD Monitor :: TweakTown USA Edition ) i assume they like vp2655wb better...

i really want to know about game... anyone owns this monitor?

- Planar PX2611W is based on NEC 2690WUXi and almost half of price of nec... of course not able to find source in canada...

anyhow some review said its not good on gaming... such as http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...1&limitstart=3

i will consider viewsonic vp2655wb (if game is good) or u3011 if the price is right... just little hestiate to buy expensive monitor... >_>;

Umm how does this Viewsonic compare to the U2711? It's 2" smaller, and has a far lower resolution. There's no way I'd pay an extra $50 for lower resolution and less size.

I say get the U2711. You won't be disappointed. Absolutely stunning monitor and perfectly capable for gaming.

the review said its 25.5 screen lcd... and i believe 1200px height or more is good enough...

But it's $50 extra, I don't see why you'd want to pay more for a lesser screen. U2711 is 1.5" (if you want to be exact) larger and 2560x1440 resolution. Those 1.5" make a huge difference IMO along with the boost in resolution. I can fit 3 letter pages side-by-side on my screen at 100% zoom and I can see the page from top to bottom no problem. So really, I see no issue with it being 16:9.

I surely don't have any regrets buying my U2711. Couple other users on here have it too and they all seem quite pleased.

Unless you simply cannot fit a 27" screen on your desk, I can't think of any other reason to spend more money on a smaller screen. If you like 1920x1200, grab the U2410. It's cheaper than the Viewsonic and better pixel pitch as it's 24" instead of 25.5".

As for the whole H-IPS issues the U2711 had initially, I'm fairly confident they've all been cleared up at this point. Granted I don't know what stock BestDirect has, but I got mine direct from Dell and it suffers from none of the tint issues. Even if you do have issues, Dell should swap it out pretty easily.

Anyways, if you're buying basically any IPS/PVA monitor, they aren't "designed" for gaming at all. They're designed for colour reproduction, not response time. Majority of them have some input lag (if you notice that kind of thing) due to the internal processing. If it's strictly for gaming, maybe you should consider one (or three) of those 23" 3D-ready ones that run 120Hz instead.

ok good point..., you have epxerience... i dont... i bought only one lcd... just 2290wa (too small resolution and bright) and dont like it then gave it to my happy brother... since i am still using my viewsonic crt and its about die... tnt was very horrible lcd due bad angle and color...

for game... i am trying to find a best lcd for me... movie/tv show/comic/manga = game > photoshop/design... and very picky about fps and color quality... i believe 24" is too small for me... because of height of screen...

btw i have a big desk...

if u2711 is 16:10 then i will grab one without any hestiate... thats why i consider u3011...

JD May 14, 2011 04:30 PM

Well if you can afford a U3011, then by all means go for it.

However I think you'll be more than satisfied with the 16:9 U2711. It's not like any of your games/movies/shows are designed for 16:10, they're all 16:9 or less. And 1440 pixels is plenty anyways.

I don't understand why you are so against 16:9. The only benefit of 16:10 is slightly more vertical resolution. However w/ the displays you are looking at the U2711 has considerably more vertical real estate.

ipaine May 14, 2011 06:12 PM

Yea, I would have to side with JD here. You really would like the U2711, it is a very gorgous monitor. And it seems like you want a 16:10 and not 16:9 which makes sense if you are comparing 1920x1200 and 1920x1080 but you aren't, you are comparing 1920x1200 with 2560x1440. That u2711 has more screen real estate than the viewsonic and is an all round great monitor. Even some thing you might not think much of but the on screen menu system for hte Dell is one of the best I have ever used. You won't be disappointed with the Dell.
