Does anyone make a 27-30" LED monitor with a 2560x1440 resolution? I've been looking for one for a while and cannot find any manufacturer other than Apple (but, I don't need the iMac in which this screen in bundled). TIA.

Apple sells a 30" monitor version for $1799 (2560-by-1600-pixel resolution)

or a 24" for $899

I haven't seen other large LED monitors--all are LCD.

What if you got a large LED Television and used it with your computer? It wouldn't have as high a resolution (1080p seems to be the max) but you could certainly get it bigger and cheaper.

Any particular reason you are looking for a LCD monitor with LED backlight?

I already have a 24" LCD and would like to go to larger monitor.

My current 24" (1920x1200) gives me better resolution than a TV would (1920x1080). While I would get the size, I don't necessarily want just a scaling up of the current display.

I recently purchased a new laptop with an LED screen (HP 6545B); the image seems steadier and less strainful to the eye; the contrast also appears better thus making it easier for me to read small text. I also understand that LED is more energy-efficient than LCD (I'm not sure what the difference is between a "real" LED monitor vs. an LCD with LED-backlit monitor).

"LED" monitors (and HDTVs) are LCD monitors with LED backlight.

Non "LED" monitors (and HDTVs) are LCD monitors with traditional florescent backlight.

I just got an LED (backlight) monitor (23" so no help for this discussion) and I must say I am fairly impressed. No heat practically (and no cooling vents), amazingly light (even for an LCD) and good display as well. Not an earth shattering improvement, but a nice one for sure.

One extra note though, the real awesomeness is yet to come. All of the LED BL monitors I know of are "edge lit", which means for dynamic contrast the entire screen must dim (something I don't like, thus I don't use DC). I have seen however the first full LED backlit TVs from samsung that can dim sections of the screen and thus give decent dynamic contrast. Just something to look forward to in the future.

Nice catch-- I saw the 24" LED and just assumed the 30" would be too. I see now that it isnt...



Unfortunately, I think your best option is two 23-24' LED monitors side by side.

Newegg has some compelling options:

23" Asus LED- $209 each
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

23" LG LED: -$279 each (probably best quality)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

24" Acer LED $299 each
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

There is a $2,000 HP one too, but unless you are a graphic professional I cant really imagine the need for it.

Yeah, I could have gotten that LG one too, but I decided to trust in Samsung.

But regardless, look at that power consumption. 28W max! At non-blinding settings that drops down to 20W or less. My old 17 inch LCD consumed more power (30W).

My 47" LG 47LH90 HDTV has a full LED array with local dimming. It's not perfect because the local sections are quite large, but overall I like it.

Nice. I wasn't expecting perfection for local dimming, but that sounds at least decent. Good to hear, now all we need is one LED per pixel...

Update on the Apple 27inch: Its coming soon

http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/10/03/18/apple_pre...

"Two people familiar with the upcoming display say its been lingering in Apple's labs for quite sometime, where it's frequently referenced by the unique identifier/codename "K59." The Mac maker is believed to have been waiting patiently for the cost of the larger LCD panels, which sport a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels, to shed some of their premium before introducing the model to market.

That thing is going to be really expensive though. Apple displays always are.

Yea I would guess $13-1500ish--but very good quality. Apple will even out the price point between the 24 and 30--its what they always do.

Yep, I wasn't saying they are necessarily overpriced. My opinion though (for most things) is I'd rather lose a little quality if it drops the price enormously.

My monitor, a ViewSonic A90f+, is nearing the end of its life.

I use my computer for graphics and 3d. I am not sure of what monitor to get. I think that getting a LED would be best but there are very few 27" size, which is what I want to get.

I have looked at LCDs such as Samsung 27" and the I-Inc 27" (which got rebranded as a 28").
The I-Inc has a decent warranty and low price at TigerDirect. For some reason I don't trust it.

Would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks
Thomas

Forgot.

When will the new technology mention in the original post become available?
