Dells are way to expensive to only have (sony guts) as to reference a movie lol, you can find better monitors cheaper. Might i suggest a samsung monitor or asus or a hans g. In my experience with dell the only thing you really are buying from them is the name and crap service, but to each his/her own.

http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-S27B550VS-27-inch-SyncMaster/dp/B0077L2MD8/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pdT1_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2WN6BG2NRHZR0&coliid=I1FGF9WNK3VJVI

This is the monitor that i currently have it's a 27" but it's a great monitor and for the price you can buy 2 or more than what you would have paid for that one dell. Also this monitor is a 2ms response time which is better for gaming anyways, i'm sure some will disagree but the research i have found leads me to either 5ms and lower for the best possible looking HD game play weather or not it is really that visible to the naked eye but it is mostly user choice.

Hope i could help

Doc


p.s. Also might i add watch out when buying brand name electronics not from the company of origin such as a dell anything from anybody other than dell you might run into some issues of warranty granted it is their product but still just watch it and read all the fine print. Heard to many similar stories.

Travis I cannot recommend this monitor any lower than PERFECT I have the 3007 model 2560x1600 and I have had it for almost 7 years. I call her the "E" Special" ZERO DEAD PIXELS. Runs like a champ. I am pretty sure the guts are Samsung but I could be wrong.

2560x1600 = 4.1 megapixels PER FRAME

1920x1080 = 2.08 Megapixels PER FRAME


I know people like Lunar and Java have (3) 1080 p monitors but the front display still is only 1080p the 2 extra monitors are showing you peripherally not whats in front of you. This beast is 1600p almost 200% difference in information. When you and a sniper are looking at each other from any given distance you will see 200% of the information he will which will make your identification much faster.

The only difference between my old monitor and this new one your looking at is the HDMI cable (I don't have one only DVID



I worked the Dell rep down to 900 plus free next day delivery and its been the best gaming investment my whole life.

To compare


3840x2160 (4k) = 8 megapixel front display best price 14k$

2560x1600 = 4.1 megapixels PER FRAME

1920x1080 = 2.08 Megapixels PER FRAME


there is a curse that goes along with this monitor you need to know about.
Every time a new game comes out with a new MS library (DX11) , you have to really put serious money into video cards to get them to run at acceptable frame rates +40 fps. bf3 with (2) gtx580 3g get minimum 45 fps. But it looks so great.

Here are some screen shots of my lcd and in game

fyi 990 for the monitor and get insurance home owners or rents or whatever breaking this thing or loosing it will break your heart.

docs 27" lcd is still awesome i have it at work and LOVE IT.

BUT FOR GAMING THIS WILL GIVE YOU AN ADVANTAGE





the second monitor off to the side is a 24" 1920x1080p lcd led fyi

good luck and beware of the curse

Ya, that's what I'm thinking Nimmer. I have a 24" 1920x1200 Samsung right now that I've had for 3 years. It works great but my room is so small that having both a tv and a monitor is overwhelming. I understand the thing with the graphics card, but I upgrade every year or so anyway.

2560x1080 = 2.78 megapixels PER FRAME

1920x1080 = 2.08 Megapixels PER FRAME

here it is on the Vizio site



http://store.vizio.com/xvt3d580cm.html?SID=q8h66e1sfdfs3glp103l3e2v27



1999.00



Costco stopped selling it.

Apparently between the 999.00 black Friday 2012 sale and the Costco success , I am sure they want a premium for it now.


regardless, 2560x1080p 21x9 Cinema Wide, will be my next tv. If i am VERY lucky 2013 Christmas.

You spoke of regular tv being "blocky" nimmer, I still don't understand what you mean.

Ferris

seing how they are going for 1500 used on amazon and 1999.99 new at vizio and all are sold out.

THE SMART THING TO DO FERRIS IS BUY ALL FIVE SELL AT 1999.00

HAVE ENOUGH MONEY FOR THIS

SONY 4K 3820X2160 FOR 4999 COMING OUT APRIL 21ST
