They are basically cheaping out.

Due to substrate sizes, more 16:9 panels can be created from a single sheet of material which in essence increases yields substantially.

In addition, the overall panel quality of 16:9 screens has dropped as well. Very few of them currently use high quality IPS and PVA has essentially dried up in the 16:9 area as well. Samsung's new PLS panels have the potential to really turn things around but they are currently only available on a $900 27" (2560 x 1440 though)and a 16:10 24" unit.

This is the first I am hearing about this Samsung 27" 2560x1440 display. Might be a good choice for people who find like the aggressive AG coating on the Dell U2711.

Once you see our review (next week!), you will certainly want it....

According to AkG, the new PLS panel is out of this world.

Price, USB 3.0, 100% sRGB, etc: NCIX.com - Buy Samsung SyncMaster LS27A850DS 27IN Widescreen LED Pls LCD Monitor 2560X1440 5ms 300CDM DVI DP Pivot - Samsung - LS27A850DS/ZA - in Canada

10e seems to like that PLS monitor and he is pretty up to date on this tech. If he likes it thats good enough for me.

Why do people always have to find things I can't afford. Looks awesome though, and I've heard a few things from my pops on this tech. Sounds pretty solid.

Same...I just can't justify spending nearly a grand on a gaming monitor...

Still can't decide between Samsung and the Dell IPS...

Sadly 16:10 got shuffled out by lowest common denominator, price. You can pry my 4 16:10 LCD's from my cold dead fingers.. Paid a freaking premium for the last 24"er though...

There are quite a few competent 16:10 24" offerings these days.

For fast paced gaming the Dell U2412M, HP ZR2440W and ZR24W are good screens.

For good all-rounders there are the Asus PA246Q and Dell U2410. They're not bad gaming screens either, they're just a bit slower in terms of input lag versus their less capable, but lower-cost little brothers above.

Between the U2711 and Samsung S27A850 there is no doubt that the Dell monitor is better built/higher-quality, more capable, more inputs and a better overall package, but I like the lower grain/smoother anti-glare of the Samsung model more, as well as the "closer to sRGB" panel.

Wide gamut is useless for most people, and while the Samsung is slightly above standard, sRGB gamut, it's close enough for my tastes. I do prefer the LED back-light of the Samsung to the Dell's wide gamut CCFL back-light simply because it generates less heat.

The lowest lag 27" is the HP ZR2740W, though it has the slowest response time by a hair. It has an LG IPS panel like the Dell, but is around $700.00 last time I checked ShopBot.

I know response times doesn't always predict whether a screen is good for gaming, but how are people finding the 8ms rt on the Dell U2412M for gaming? The other screen I'm looking at is the Samsung S24A850DW Pls screen, which has a 5ms gtg rt...
