Main use is for graphics design and editing. alternatively I am an occasional gamer. And I will be watching blu-rays and hooking up my cable box to it.

I would prefer to wall mount it but it isn't a requirement. I would like to have higher than 1920x1080 resolution as this thing will only be 2-3ft away from me, but it isn't a requirement. Has to have at least 1 HDMI input. no sound required as i always run audio through a receiver.

The main source will be my macbook pro.

I'm also interested if the top end 27-30" monitors have a better picture than a 32" samsung 6500 series or sony's equivelant 32"???

Thanks!

You could probably get a really nice 27-30" H-IPS monitor for that price. I know they're slower than TN LCDs as far as input lag but not sure how much slower.

I would consider a 21:9 widescreen for this type of application...could be amazing!

for all the things you are doing, I would think 21:9 would have advantages. Gaming - yes, graphics - likely but not sure, blu-ray - absolutely!

There are some interesting clips of poeple gaming on them on youtube. Most find it quite an immersive experience.

Aren't 21:9 blu-ray's mastered at 16:9 but with black letterboxing "drawn" in such that the image AND black bars together are still only 1080 lines high?  That puts the actual 21:9 movie image itself at 1920 x 822 or so.  If that's the case, then you're losing a degree of quality by scaling that image upwards to a native 2520 x 1080 (21:9) display.  You're better off just getting a larger 16:9 screen for blu-ray.


Cogito ergo sum makes a fundamental mistake because it ignores the implied existence of the narrator. Descartes might as well have said "A rose is red, therefore I am".
