I was looking at those. I am trying to decide between a Dell Ultrasharp and an ASUS one. I really don't want speakers built into the monitor but I guess it really isn't a reason not to buy a great monitor
I think I am going to end up going with an ASUS one. Has anybody seen any reviews as far as the built in speakers go. I know u can probably turn them off and plug in other speakers but I was just curious
how can 12 people already look at this and have no response?
Little impatient there huh....
Best deal on a monitor right now is the Catleap 27in with an eye watering 2560x1440 resolution. These are LG monitors are from Korea and if you do ur research the people that have bought these from eBay have been giving great reviews. The Catleap iss @ $350 and it is comparable to the Dell Ultrasharp 2560x1440 that sells for $900. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-YAMAKASI-CATLEAP-Q270-SE-27...
Review on people that own these monitors are here. http://www.overclock.net/t/1225919/yamakasi-catleap-mon... And as u can see by how long the thread is this monitor is getting very popular with gamers due to the resolutions and some versions of the monitor being able to be overclocked to 100Hz or 120Hz! But the overclockable versions are getting hard to find.
Ur GPU won't handle 2560x1440 in most of the new AAA games, but u can just decrease res to 1920x1080 until u upgrade ur GPU in the future. Other less GPU intensive games u can play at the gorgeous 1440p res.
well I am going with the 27" ASUS monitor. After reading more reviews than I care to count between the ASUS and a Dell Ultrasharp some people seem to think the lower ms is more important to avoid ghosting and then some people think the colors are better with IPS monitors and thats more important. I am going to go with the ASUS one because it is a little cheaper and if I don't like it I guess I could always return it and get a better one.
