    Jeez, this is infuriating. Another new screen, 27" at that, and only 1080p vertically. Nice design, hate piano black, but not for me. I need at least 1200p vertically. If only just to have 'standard' 16:10 AR on my monitor. These blow at most.

    The thought of buying a 1080p instead of a 1200p makes me want to spit!:wtf:
    Even Samsung has stopped production of all 1200p monitors but the 2433BW.:shadedshu

    The resolution is not suitable for that kind of a big monitor as far as i can tell, they should have put it 2560x1600. 1080 on that big guy is like something's missing and that is the resolution.

    1080 vertical on a 27inch screen is retarded in the extreme. It would be infuriating to own one of these.

    I'd rather buy a 32" 1080p TV. It would at least have a decent panel, not this Tn-film garbage.

    you guys do understand many ppl have 1080p on 60+" TVs and 720p on 50" plasma is not rare... hell, they make 50" 720P 3D TVs lol

    You generally sit further away from a TV (across the room) than you do a computer monitor (2 feet in front of you).

    And TVs have much better panels than these crappy things.

    16:9 has unfortunately pretty much won over 16:10. For a given diagonal size, 16:10 offers more screen area than 16:9. I have actually just switched back to 4:3 CRTs and am very pleased.

    I have a 27" 1920x1200 Samsung 275T and don't find the pixels to be too big, nor do I think they would be [for my taste] at 1920x1080. The popularity of monitors with extreme pixel density confuses me from a practical standpoint: I have better than 20/20 vision but find that packing too many pixels into a small area results in a hard time seeing what I need to see (e.g. text). Right now I have TPU zoomed in two notches in Firefox, on my 21" CRT at 1600x1200.

    what a crazy man! lol jk. Though i will say i've never heard anyone else say or do that after having a flatscreen monitor.

    OT:
    I use a 32" TV at 1920x1080(~2.5ft from me) and don't think the screen is too big for that res, my brother has a 28" also at 1920x1080 and it looks fine on his as well. Haven't had a side-by-side comparison yet tho.

    Also, does the use of HDMI cable over DVI improve the quality of what's displayed? always wondered this

    I'm running 1080p on my 37" Panasonic telly as my primary monitor it's not that bad! but yep for a monitor you'd expect a higher res.

    No. The display signal is 100% identical. The only differences are the connector, and HDMI can carry audio as well.
