I'm looking to upgrade my 27" LED Samsung 1920x1080 monitor (SMS27A350H) to a WQHD 2560 x 1440 variant due to wanting more real estate and needing a VESA mount capability.
When I purchased the Samsung I did not realize that at this stage of monitors a VESA mount was not available with this particular model.
Old monitor for reference:
I was pretty much set on getting an Apple 27" LED cinema display until I noticed yesterday that their latest variant is only compatible with Apple products.... what a bummer.
With that I would like to get a glossy style finish (instead of full matte) but can't seem to really find one at 27" with WQHD resolution, and a VESA mount is a must since I will be wall mounting it.
Also, the usage for the new monitor will be for all an around purpose (gaming, movies, internet browsing, very light amateur photo editing, no video editing though).
The video card that I will match this to is a nVidia 580GTX which will get upgraded next year.
During my research I seem to have narrowed it down to two, but want to make sure I'm not missing any another viable choice.
1) ASUS PB Series PB278Q 27" 5ms (GTG) WQHD Widescreen PLS-Panel LED Monitor 100% SRGB ( http://www.newegg.co...N82E16824236294 ) $559.99
2) Dell UltraSharp U2713HM Black & Silver 27" 8ms (GTG) WQHD Widescreen IPS-Panel LED Monitor ( http://www.newegg.co...N82E16824260111 ) $699.99
EDIT: At this stage should I also be considering a 120hz monitor? 3D is irrelevant to me.
Opinions? Comments? Suggestions?
PS -> I will not necessarily be buying the monitor via Newegg.com
