The ASUS is a stunning looking monitor and has the addition of built-in speakers but both are only 1080p at 27-inches and neither have a built-in webcam. I agree with .fahim. Surely you need at least 1440p on a 27-incher, otherwise you can just get 23/24-inch.

Was gonna say, 1080p is low for a 27inch, you'll appreciate the 1440p when you see it, I had i on an iMac 27inch and loved it

1080 on a screen that big is a waste. go 1440 or 1600 as for brand, Dell uses both Samsung and LG screens, not sure who provides ASUS but it will likely be Samsung or LG, not many other companies can produce screens at those sizes and resolutions, even the "cheap" Korean screens are just rebadged LGs

1440 is too expeeze!! I don't mind 1080p on a 27' , my current display is a 27' Samsung 1080 and it looks great.
If someone can find me a 1440 screen that costs 350 then I'll cancel my order!

Sorry Kid, 1080p is a low resolution for today standards nowadays everyone is going 1440p or 1600 much better screen resolution and more work space and more room on the screen.

Hello,

I just purchased a 1440p display, an EQD Corp. Auria EQ276W. This is a 27" WQHD (2560×1440) IPS LED LCD display.

It cost about $400USD plus taxes from Micro Center. Here's the page for it on their web site: EQ276W 27" IPS LED Monitor

The first unit I picked up had two stuck pixels so I returned it. The store let me hook up the replacement to one of their bench test PCs and I verified it had no dead or stuck pixels. I would recommend doing this with any monitor purchase before leaving the store.

This was about $250 less than the next two cheapest WQHD monitors I could find, ASUS' PB278Q and Hewlett-Packard's ZR2740w.

Advantages: very bright IPS LED LCD display. inexpensive
Disadvantages: potential stuck pixels, concerns about the longevity of the manufacturer (I'd never heard of EQD Corp. before I started researching WQHD displays).
Neutral: monitor base is simple, physical control buttons require a lot of force, but once you set the monitor up you're not too likely to change these

Regards,

Aryeh Goretsky

Gonna stick with 1080 no sense in breaking the bank right now. If I was a developer or designer then there wouldn't be a question about it.
Thx for all the help

The problem I have with both monitors is that they are only 1920 x 1080. If I was going to go with that resolution then a 32" HDTV would seem to be more logical. The price would be about the same (maybe a little more). I use a Mitsubishi 40" LED HDTV as my main monitor, and truly am glad to have gone in that direction. The sound alone is a huge difference because of the ability the HDTV gives to having surround sound.

No one in there right mind will use a LED TV as a monitor or either a Large Monitor... especially with the 1080p resolution... but no one needs a bigger monitor then 27 - 30" for there computer unless you demonstrating something like a Company like Microsoft for Xbox or PlayStation showing off the latest games for there new consoles. or demonstrating anything else., and plus you want a higher resolution for there's large displays or it will look way too big and won't look right. and no one needs a large display at this time I will recommended either a 27 - 30" LED monitor and please don't use a television. for a monitor it just isn't right.

You might want to consider going for the Dell S2740L instead. Dell just has a very good name and in general pretty good monitors. The panel is most likely exactly the same as the Asus but in my opinion Dell's design is much, much nicer.

But I do agree about the resolution. 1080p at 27" leaves you with a really low display density. Higher resolution panels are pretty expensive but they're worth it. Another solution is downsizing to 23". It'll still be 1080p but it'll cost less and you can get a higher-quality matte panel (like the Dell U2312HM). Those monitors also have much better ergonomics.

Size isn't everything you know. We're at a point where 5" phones are full HD and 10" tablets have 2560x1600. Heck, even my 13.1" laptop from 2010 has a 1080p panel. No point in going for pixels that big when we're talking PC.
