Im looking for a 120Hz monitor to buy no later that Christmas, and am currently looking seriously at the Asus VG278H. My main concern is that 1080p on a 27" monitor is kind of stretched out.

Does anyone have any input to how 1920x1080 looks like on a 27 inch monitor? Is the text blurry at all, I mean I always have anti aliasing in games, but theres no AA for windows font lol...

There actually is AA for fonts. Font Smoothing, works pretty well too. Also known as ClearType. I think it's turned on by default in Windows 7, maybe Vista also.

http://www.microsoft.com/typography/smoothfonts.mspx, for me that page is missing the images though, may be an outdated page.

I actually can't stand using very large monitors for PC work. 27" is OK as a TV, but when you are sitting only a few feet from it, it's too big, your head is moving too much to see from edge to edge. At work, we have a 32" Planar 4k resolution display, cost about $10,000. No-one liked to use it. They prefer two different monitors side by side to that thing.

Unless you already though this over, try a 22 or 24" monitor, you may be happier with that, unless you sit far back and want to use it as a TV display also.

Personally I use a 27" ASUS and it's a great monitor. It's certainly a big step up from my old 19" CRT. I suppose it might be easier to focus on a 24" display if you are using it for work, but that's what I do and I have no real issues.

IMO the "ASUS VG278H" is the best 3D 120Hz Monitor available at the moment, especially with the LightBoost technology if you are using it for 3D (the older ones look too dark).

Unless something better comes along soon this is the display I will be buying when it's released next year in Australia.

It's up to you but after experiencing a 27" LCD for movies and games I wouldn't want to go back to a smaller one (unless perhaps it's three of em in surround)

Anyway good luck in finding the best solution for your needs.
