  1. Best answer
    Most monitors do not hit 2560 x 1440 until you hit about 27"
    Did a google search on 24" 2560 x 1440 and came back with all 27 In versions..
    24" and smaller, that resolution would make for TINY lettering.
    About the cheapest are some "Korean" models that use less than A+ graded panels. Was looking at an auria 27 " for $399 USD.
    Here is a link to it.

    Might try a search to see if it is available there and pricing.
    $400 USD = approx. £260, But have a feeling that if you do find it it would be closer to £400 because of Your VAT.

    Some others (off the wall brands) down to $350 USD:

    OPPS you may not be looking for a ISP, or PSL panel. The LED TN panels are cheaper.
    Tried to find as I know they are out there, but had no luck.

    I ended up going with the Asus 27" PLS 2560 x 1440 for $650 (now down to $550 on sale).
  2. What brand do you guys like for monitors? I have an 21" 1024x728 phillips and its amazing at the min what brands are good 2 brands only as i dont make up my mind easy

    You going to want something around 27" or bigger ISP or PSL. Im also in in the market of getting a 1440P at some point
  4. Just a side comment, The vast majority of the IPS/PSL Monitors Panels come from just two OEMs, LG (For IPS) and Samsung (for PLS).
    I'm happy with My Asus PB278Q: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236294
    Previous 3 Monitors where Samsung:
    One of the Best I've owned - A Samsung 24" 1920 x1200 (Note this is a 16:10 NOT a 16: 9) and Also had a built-in TV tuner
    Other two Samsungs, on a 27 In and the other a 32 In, both limited to 1920 x 1080.
    The Better Dells are from benQ which are pretty good.
    Phillips is not that popular here in the states.

    Added: For 30 Inch look for 2560 x 1600 (This is a 16:10 panel). A 30 In 16:10 panel is larger than a 16:9 panel.
  5. HP Pavillion 27xi any good at 1920x1080 ?
