Thanks Kelly,

Good info.

Since I installed the DVI cable ( at your suggestion) I went from 1024 X 760 to 1680 X1050, and the pic is very good.

I think for now, I'll just stick with what I have.

Thanks again,

Paul

Sorry, I wasn't trying to talk you out of buying anything, I was just saying you would have better picture quality with a smaller monitor @ 1080p. I'm sure the 27" 1080p would give you an incredible picture as well, and give you a ton of monitor real estate. If I had the choice of a 27" 1080p or that Dell 23" 1080p, I personally would get the Dell.....given both are around the same price. The Dell has a wonderful IPS panel, giving you almost 180* viewing angles, and better color reproduction. It also comes with an amazing stand. I know people that have had Dell Ultrasharps for several years and they are still incredible looking!

You didn't talk me out of buying anything, I just decided that my current monitor gives me what I consider, excellent resolution.

If,and when it dies, I'll consider your suggestions.

Thanks again.

OK buddy......when you get ready for an upgrade, maybe higher resolutions like 2560x1440 or 2560x1600 will be cheaper. That is the upgrade I'm waiting on!

Here is a Dell Ultrasharp 27" that I really like: Dell Ultrasharp 27"

And a Samsung: Samsung 27"

Both are currently too expensive for just an upgrade from what I have. With 4K resolution monitors right around the bend, I'm hoping the prices drop quite a bit.

LOL! I know they are spendy, and that's why I don't have one yet. However, I am a believer in spending a good chunk on a monitor because you are going to be looking at that every time you are on the computer. Prices will go down soon enough.

If you want a 27" monitor, out of those you listed, go for the Asus. You can get a nice 23/24" 1080p monitor with a nicer IPS panel for a good price too....and you will DEFINITELY see a difference with that.

Take a look at this: Dell Ultrasharp I wish I had a few of these myself!
Hey Kelly,

How about this one?
We could have shared custody- you get it on Mon to Thurs, I get it on Fri to Sun.

He had his computer monitor and his HDTV mirrored on his old computer so I figured this would be a snap on his new one. His HDTV is connected via an DVI (PC) to HDMI (TV) cable and that...
