    Posted: 15 Jan 2010 at 4:53pm
It looks like a 27" monitor will fit on my desk for gaming.
 
I notice Dell, NEC, LG, Samsung, etc have models this size.
 
I know you want a very high viewing angle (vertial and horizontal) and resolution, but has anybody actually had personnel experience with any that they would recommend??
 
I have gone to a number of electronic stores and they do not have any on display to see....just the smaller ones.
 
I can order one on-line, but I am leary without knowing which one is best for gaming. Looking for the best possible picture.
 
Recommendations welcomed and encouraged...thx!!!

Maybe you should get 3 or 4 smaller ones. I found some for 100 each and I am thinking of 6 of them

which ever has the best quality. I would go for nec or Dell, as long as the viewing angles are there.

I heard the monitor glass is important.
 
Does either of these companies have a better reputation for quality glass??

This Planar is recognized as one of the best monitors ,it's a 26 though

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824016084&Tpk=planar%2026

and expensive

there new Dell 2711 is getting(albeit early) good/great reviews,also pricey

http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1464591&page=4

also here's a good size comparison among 30,27 and 24 inch monitors

1. the 30" will have higher res 2560 x 1600 while the 27" will have lower res 1900 x 1200, higher res is better.

2. both are ips non tn panels so I think the 3008 is good to go.

I agree ,but I think among the choices,I'd probably go with a Samsung 305t refurb off ebay,before spending 1100$+ on any of the dell current(30 inch) offerings

I don't like samsung there is better quality out there.
