Had been debating whether to get a Dell 27" IPS Panel for a while, couldnt justify the £600+ price tag in the end. While they may be excellent, they also far exceed what myself and many others require out of a monitor.

This seems to be one of the best TN Panels about (Review link in first post).

Has been excellent so far, even a friend who has 2x Dell 30" IPS Panels is quite impressed.

For £266 - you can't go wrong.

HDMI, DVI and VGA. Inbuilt speakers and adjustable stand.

Comes with a DVI, VGA and Power cable in the box.

This is an excellent monitor that will be useful for most users, except, perhaps, for the most detailed photo editing work. Five stars out of five.

Shame it's not 1920x1200 really. Still lots of monitor for the price.

Not a comment on the deal, but sorry, that made me laugh! Usually it's preceded by a slightly smaller price tag than that!

Good price for a 27" but personally I think it is a shame that it is still only 1080p would much rather a 1900 x 1200 res, also from the review seems to not be great for video unless watching from a few feet away.

why do they consitently try to fob people off with 1080p??

agree with posters above, shames its 1080p, any kind of sofwate dev/photo editing needs vertical space.

Ohh.... wonder if my desk is big enough for two of those.

Hot!

1920 x 1080 makes very little difference to me personally - so many manufacturers are moving away from 1920x1200.

I can appreciate, the extra height is worth it for photography or video editing.. Also IPS technology on top.. But 98% of people don't require that..

Like me.. most surf, email, work and game on their PCs.. That's about it.

Considering the reviews on this monitor, you're going to have to spend a whole lot more for a 27" monitor that'll beat it. Even the Acer 27" LED Backlite monitor doesn't review aswell as this..

Sure, you can actually spend slightly less on a Hanspree or Iiyama monitor which has 1920x1200... Then again, you don't get such a nice clean design and adjustable stand.. Which i think is essential for a screen of this size.

A Dell U2711 is going to cost you around £700 (Only been on offer twice for around the £600 mark).. That's a whopping £434 more. Personally, i'd rather have two of these badboys and still end up pocketing £168 :)

Hot. If only I could justify it...
#9
is this any good for blurays? not sure if the lower 720p resolution is noticable on a screen this small...
#10
how about this one slightly cheaper and 1920x1200 resolution

Doesn't rate as highly as the Iiyama:

http://www.digitalversus.com/hannsg-hh281hpb-p357_10582_322.html

The HannsG HH281HPB can't hope to be the tool of choice for gamers with such poor responsiveness. If, on the other hand, you're looking for a big monitor to use in the office without the price tag to match, it's perfect!


Only gets 3 stars out of 5. Iiyama gets 5 out of 5.

Plus, when you've got a monitor this size.. You really want either a very well positioned fixed stand, or an adjustable one..

Up-scaling is only an issue if the player you're using isn't doing it properly.. Back when this monitor was released, this would be an issue.. Now, pretty much everything up-scales well at the source..

Nice one Spritey, I've been eyeing this monitor for a while now as my general monitor - Games, Movies and general software development work to replace the Samsung T220, I have already got 2 x Dell IPS monitors for general photo work.

Btw, it was about £261 about 2 weeks ago, but £266 is still a good price, so have some heat.

Have you played any fast paced (FPS) games with the new monitor? Any ghosting or lagging? Appreciate any response.

Cheers

It's been great for FPS mate, no ghosting or lag at all. It was the main reason i bought it, due to how good the digitalversus review was.

So good infact, i'm considering buying a 2nd one. So i've got a matching pair.

Thanks Spritey, that's me sold :D.

I personally wouldn’t. I did look at this monitor.

Not quite as well rated as the B2712HDS

The main reason I didn’t go for it is the stand.

At this size, you REALLY need an adjustable stand. Even my wife commented (and she’s computer phobic) – that the stand made it so much better in terms of putting the monitor at the best level for her.

The only advantage this monitor has is the 1920 x 1200 resolution, which is kind of a mute point for most.. There is a reason so many manufactures have moved to 1920 x 1080, it’s a much more consumer friendly resolution with things like Bluray.

Fair do's. Will probably wait until there are more LED backlits available in this size range before upgrading.

I looked at the reviews of monitors like the 27” LED Backlit Asus one, as it was only £40 more on ebuyer.

Just didn’t seem to be as highly rated. If anything, quite poor.

A mate of mine has an LED Backlit BenQ 24” Monitor, just didn’t seem to impress me very much.
