Default Re: Monitor Question

There's always the TV route.

I chose the TV for several reasons but the biggest reason was price. The 27" Dell is $1100 for what would have been an extra 1.5" of screen over my 25.5" TN panel (and almost 4x what I had paid for the TN panel) and the 30" jumps to $1500. So for $1300 I got a Samsung 50" 3D Plasma TV and IMO it blows my old 25.5" Samsung TN panel away for gaming both in size and image quality.

I'm not saying you should get a 50" but... if size matters to you for the same price as a 24" IPS panel you can get a pretty decent sized TV.
