First, I have no problem with that monitor. But if you have the "extra" money, at this time and place....... seeing how the 3d stuff is becoming more and more relevant ( games and movies ) I would look into that. Just food for thought - not trying to sway you into anything but why not be 3d prepared ?
I don't have a 3d monitor and don't miss it and probably wouldn't get one until my current monitor goes belly up. By then they might be 28-30 inchers.
