No speakers. Hate to mail order without seeing and I have little local products to pick from.

So those that have eyeballed one of these please chime in.

19 max height. 28.5 max width.
Havent seen any below 31mm dot pitch ???? and would like the brightness to be 300 at least. LED preferred but not a deal breaker.
Thanks............

I have a 24" Samsung P2570HD its a TV/monitor. I like it because I can change inputs and watch TV on it, and its a perfect size monitor.

This is the one I have, love it. Resolution is 1920x1080 which might seem a little low for a 27 incher, but going higher will probably double the price. It still looks fantastic and I don't mind since that's native 1080p and I like to clone the display out to my TV for media center stuff.

Got ya beat...I have my panny 58" plasma hooked up to a PC ( Media center ) for certain net streaming and such....
1920 x 1080 works fine, even on a 58" set.

I'd definitely look for a TV with monitor input ( make sure it will take full resolution on that input). Hell most new PCs have HDMI outs and any new TV should handle full HD (1080P) fine. I'd still look for the VGA or DVI input though as it can be either.

Check costco or Sams club to see what hey have in stock.

Well yes I did and the 27" tvs were all too big probably cause of speakers and etc and with the extra inputs and stuff a tv has that Im not going to use they are higher priced than a monitor.
Remember 19 " high max...........

Oh yeah.....the reason for 27" is thats the hole size. Hate to waste anything....lol

I'm thinking about going with a 27" IPS panel for my next LCD. Much better quality than TN, pricey, but I plan to make it the monitor to end all monitors. Had a 24" for about 5 years.

Any 27" IPS panels you guys like?

I don't have a specific model for you, but for an IPS I would take a hard look at Dell.

Stupid question but when going from a 4x3 puter monitor to a widescreen one I dont see any settings in windows or on my video card driver to change so ????
I am used to changing some settings on the source like a dvd player or sat receiver when going from 4x3 to wide so am I missing something here or what ?

You just have to change the resolution to a 16:9 resolution. There should be several options that are 16:9.

Nope, have plenty of resolution choices but nothing showing 16x9.
Would those options become available AFTER I PLUG IN THE NEW MONITOR WHICH IS 16X9 AND THE OLD ONE CONNECTED AT THE MOMENT IS 4X3 ?

Kinda need to know before I buy this monitor, rather not have to upgrade the video card also..............

In the resolution screen, there should be a whole slew of different option (starting at 800x600 and going on) and some of those should work out to a widescreen. I think that's what he's saying.

Oh, and I think all those settings are from your video card, the monitor doesn't make a difference - but I wouldn't put money on that.

I'm going to wait until I get to my new place to throw down on new electronics, but I'm thinking of getting a 21.5" all-in-one (not sure what kind) and then getting another monitor along with it. Might be too much, but I'm used to dual 19" (I believe) at work and my netbook now just doesn't cut it with all the advanced things I want to be doing. I just gotta make sure that these all-in-one's have the ability to attach another monitor, I'm sure they do.

A study was done about computer monitors and productivity.

Turns out, the most productive set up is 2 21" monitors. Screen's not so big people are consistently moving windows around and wasting time with mouse movements, but big enough that multi tasking on each monitor is easily done and many things can be viewable at once.

I have two 24 inch monitor set up, and I wish I had gone a bit smaller to the 21 inch monitors. 24's are nice and all, but they are better suited for full screen video and games, not work. Work related activities, its too much real estate.

Depends what you do for work.

For video editing and graphic design I wouldn't go any lower than my 24" and I want bigger.

Naw, Im good. Elite 8 is nothing to be ashamed of. Made it further than any other #1 in the tournament.

Probably the craziest tournament I ever remember either. And, ultimately, also the worst championship game I can ever remember.

Bob's just a douche and designers/video editors aren't workers. They are douches. I know, I work with lots of them and they are proud of themselves all the time but they don't do work.

I sold hp specialty gear, and loved it. that is consumer level gear. I had dual 22" hpz22w's, they were awesome.

The professional/specialty line is where it's at with hp. go buy a dream color monitor and be done with it. best monitor ever made.

While your at it, but a Z800 with dual 6core xeons. you can stack it with up to 192gb of ram.
