    Not saying it will improve your skill in games, but is very annoying to see ghosting in games.

    Well i can give you my word i see no ghosting in games and if i did i would change it,dont believe everything you hear regarding IPS panels,some may give ghosting,some dont,all depends on the revision model that you get also,earlier models have more problems than later revised models obviously:)

    Well I was looking at a Dell UltraSharp 27 or 30 inch, despite the price, as I do to hate my TN panel, and I read the most common complaint, in all reviews, was very noticable ghosting in games...

    I def want an IPS panel next time, but with TN response times. The Samsung I linked to has been called a Hybrid TN pane, people put it next to yours and say it's nearly the same quality, + 120HZ + TN response times, it's a very popular model right now due to it's price BELOW the Dell UltraSharp, quality near it, but TN response times, and the only monitor out there that offers true 120HZ, not frame interpolation.

    My advice is to go and see a panel if you can in real before you buy it and compare it to whatever else you have in mind,if not then go around youtube and see what videos people have uploaded comparing monitors and such,you really need to see them running tbh infront of you before you buy.

    Dell are working on a 120hz IPS,could be out this year....

    For what it's worth, the only negative I can find with my Dell 2209WA 22" e-IPS panel display is the ghosting -- it is rated at 6ms response time and there is indeed noticeable ghosting in some games, and even when smooth-scrolling down a page of text with Firefox. So at least with a 6ms response time, I can perceive ghosting. Then again, the 2209WA is kind of old and I am comparing directly to my Samsung 959NF CRT which, of course, has no ghosting whatsoever, being a CRT...

    But for someone who only games occasionally (like I do these days), the benefits of an IPS panel easily outweigh the one negative which is the ghosting. Unfortunately, I have no experience with the higher-end IPS panels so cannot say if they suffer from ghosting equally.

    Which is funny, because i actually had the VG236H (Bought to potentially replace my current Gateway FHD2400, and because it has 3D), and i absolutely hated the monitor. Just felt cheaply built, and using it in 2D mode 120hz gave me headaches. I could play Blur in 3D for quite some time, and not be bothered.... but just normal use, browsing the internet and stuff, made my head hurt. Wasn't impressed with the picture quality either.

    And another thing that kinda turns me off about that Asus 27" LED backlit monitor..... matte screen.

    Really? I much prefer matte to glossy screens, especially if you have windows in the room.

    agreed, i wouldnt spend any amount of money on a display that has a glossy screen.. terrible glare pretty much always if you have windows or lights facing it. no thank you.

    Well... for one, generally you get much nicer color quality on a glossy screen, at least from what i've seen. Secondly.... my FHD2400 is a glossy screen, but it's still kinda anti-glare. I mean, i have a window about 4 feet behind me and about another 4 to my right, and even on bright sunny days, i hardly even notice it's there. Now, i'm sure that might be a different story if all i play is Doom 3 full of darkness and monster closets... but that's not really my forte.

    I have the Dell U2711 and my only real complaint is the anti-glare coating which is a little too aggressive and gives a slight grainy look to pure white backgrounds.

    Other than that I'm very happy with it. Every input connection under the sun, USB connectivity, amazing viewing angles, deep blacks etc, etc.

    adobe colour reproduction is near perfect. Picture viewing and editing is amazingly good. I too see no ghosting whilst gaming.

    The extra real estate of a 2560x1440 desktop over 1920x1080 is very noticeable. You can get so much more on screen when browsing and working.

    Dells no dead pixel policy and customer service is apparently excellent as well.

    0.0 Yea... looks like a nice monitor.... but for that price i'd rather say screw IPS, and go for a 30" for like $100 more, and 2560x1600 resolution.

    And i have to say... i'm really tempted to drop the ball and buy the Asus VE278Q on Newegg.... but i'm also tempted to get the VK278Q, mostly cause it's the same monitor, with a webcam rather than speakers.... but can get $50 off as well.....
