  1. go with 24", 27 is way to big for 1080p.
  2. I would see if you can check them out in the store.

    The specs only say so much and personally I like to see them in person if I can.
  3. +1 to that. I'd take an Asus IPS or PLS.
  4. If you are buying the monitor for gaming then I'd suggest the Asus TN panel. If you want a good all around monitor then go for IPS w/ 5ms response time.

    For my desk, 24" is just right. 27" might be too big.

    Totally agree with Nuke on visiting a brick and mortar store and look at the screen.
    Movies/games will look quite good on both with the 27 " giving more space, However text not the greatest on 27", But a lot also depends on how close you sit.

    Loved my Samsung 24" 1920 x 1200 (16:10) monitor/HDTV, excellent display.
    From that I went to -> 27" Samsung -> 32" Samsung (Got my Eyes fixed so back to 24" 1920 x 1200).
    For games/movies the 27" would be a good choice, for productivity the 24" 1920 x 1200 would be my choice.

    Note: Recently went with a Asus 1560 x 1440 27" PLS panel - Love it. But really still some what expensive ($650 which Dell also has one around the same price). However, there is an Auria EQ276W 27" 2560 x 1440 ISP for only around $400 (Was My 2nd choice)

  6. Is that the PB278Q? It looks incredible. I'd love a 23-24" version of that.
  7. Yes, I bought the Asus PB278Q - Just checked I see newegg has it for $599, I paid $650 about 3 weeks ago.

    I really debated getting the Auria which is quite similar and was $250 cheaper. For the Price it's hard to beat.

  8. I recently went from a 22" envision tn 1680x1050 monitor, to a 23" asus ips 1080p passive 3d monitor.. and the difference was night and day. 5ms response I experience no ghosting hope this helps

    Asus's 'Trace Free' overdrive technology looks incredibly effective from the high-speed photography - appears to almost totally eliminate motion blur. I thought it was the PLS panel that was responsible but then I saw similar results with Asus IPS panels featuring Trace Free.

    I went from a 8ms IPS (Dell U2311H) to a 2ms TN (Asus VE247T) and the difference was huge in gaming. Color accuracy is much better on the Dell, but for gaming, the Asus is the clear winner, not even fair. I didn't realize the ghosting/tracing until I switched, cuz I hadn't played on anything else.

    But if someone wants an all around monitor then they gotta choose IPS, and get 5ms.
  11. I vote Asus 24" LED and make sure it's 2ms.
  12. All depends on viewing distance in my opinion.

    The 27" panel will have the same number of pixels but they'll be spread further apart. So from less than 2 feet away the 24" panel will look sharper. Assuming both panels are of equal quality build.
  13. How about this : ASUS VG248QE ? It's awesome :D

    If you have a build with a 680/770 or 7970 then that's a decent choice. However, an Asus 2ms monitor can be found for $140; whereas the VG248QE sells for $260. That's a big jump.

    I agree! At a given distance the 24" will always appear sharper because it has the same number of pixels as the 27" arranged in a smaller space. You could arrange the monitors so that they appear to be the same size (24" closer than 27") and you wouldn't be able to "see" a difference in sharpness.

    Get the size that fits your work area.
