Windows 7: New monitor

As paul said don't get a model with the light up sensor buttons those seem to take a crapola after a few uses get a hard button that way you will atleast be able to turn it on and off with ease and also eliminate the extra headache of trying to turn it on

Honestly, I would not mess with a 27" 1920x1080 monitor. If I were going to step up to a 27" it would be 2560x1440 resolution. With that budget, I would get a 23-24" monitor with a GOOD panel(NOT TN PANEL). There are several monitors that are 23-24", 1080p resolution, and have a good quality panel. Good quality panels are IPS, PLS, VA....TN panels are cheap and not worth buying anymore with how many good panels are out there now. The Dell Ultrasharp line of monitors are really nice, as well as Samsung, and Asus. I mention those brands because I know for a fact they are really starting to put those quality panels in quite a few of their monitors now........not because they are the only people who make good monitors.

If you are interested in staying with a 23-24" with a GOOD panel, let me know and I can show you some.

Thanks everyone well it is down to the Benq or the LG and well the LG is ahead I reckon. The Asus is $325 out here and a fair bit over my budget.

The good side is the LG is made by Philips and I have a Philips 244E 24" and it's screen is just fabulous I would say even tad better than the Benq.

I have three and the other is a Toshiba Tecra and it's screen is real nice too but as everything I touch that is Toshiba it has gone feral on me with stripes of missing pixels along the taskbar. Usable but a shame as it is a good monitor.

But thanks again for all the time and patience I do appreciate it.

The picture quality was great, but I just thought I would warn you about the touch thing so you know.

Mine do not have the invisible touch buttons but my wife's 23" one does. I have already replaced all the capacitors (5) in each of them that wear out causing the power supply not to work. Thankfully the monitors need very little adjustment.

Now I am guessing that you mean touch as in keyboard type switches and not a toggle type wet up. Mine are all just set and when I switch the power on the UPS they all just fire up - don't like things in standby mode not that I am worried about the power more that I only like the essential stuff on for fire cause reasons.

Now that is a lot of caps to be replacing Indie it leaves me with thinking perhaps they were under designed by LG or whoever or maybe just a cost cutting thing.
To be frank I don't want to have t thinking about that if I get a monitor.
Perhaps the Benq might be better then?

Just a note: 27" PLS - IPS panels, while professional grade and undeniably better quality, start at $700 (US) and go up from there.

I certainly didn't shell out that kind of money either!

Maybe if you are working in the movie industry, or doing high end photo or graphics editing it would justify the cost, but for us regular folks, I bet we couldn't pick a PLS monitor out of a lineup!
