Question

Posted

So my Dell 3007WFP 30" 2560x1600 is giving me some grief lately... it's ghosting images when closing windows and I've noticed in gaming the movement is blurred sometimes, starting to mess with my eyes.

So I don't have the cash for another 30" Dell since they are around $1100....

I am considering the following 2 monitors, because of the price and because they are on Amazon Prime. I'd rather spend $3.99 to ship it overnight then go somewhere else and spend $35 for shipping.

^Doesn't seem bad... isn't IPS but has good reviews, and a low refresh rate of 1ms (so it claims) or this one

http://www.amazon.com/Dell-927M9-IPS-LED-27-Inch-LED-lit-Monitor/dp/B009H0XQPA/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=1SFQUSPUA54N0&coliid=I257RH8Z54GW3T

is IPS, but goes up to 7ms refresh rate.

I know I am losing a ton of space by going from 16:10 2560x1600 to 16:9 1920x1080, but which one seems better of the two and on top of that, do you have a third monitor to recommend that would be on Amazon Prime?

Both of them are a downgrade and a half!

Go with the ips, don't believe the 1ms claim.

Dumb question, but for your existing Dell, have you replaced the DVI/DP cable?

Was thinking that but now I also realize the Dell IPS is all glass on the front, so it'll likely have a glare on it 24/7...

Yeah, well loan me the other $650 and I'll get the U3011 :)

No but I suppose I could try that, I'll just swap the cables between my other monitor and this one. isn't DVI digital though, wouldn't it either work or not work?

I had crazy artifacting on one of my monitors and it turned out to be a bum cable. It's the cheapest thing to try anyways.
