Dual 27" for under $400 sounds so good.

I thought 1920 x 1080 is plenty. That is what I use on my Dell 23" dual and very happy with them.

Sounds like you've never used an Ultra High Def monitor.

Some of the best are made by Dell (great warranty too). Resolution on a 28" panel is 3840 x 2160. Once you see that with your own eyes, you won't go back to 1080!

This sounds like a pretty good deal for a 27" 1920 x 1080 but I have to agree with amkorp...

Up until this weekend I thought that 1920 x 1080 was plenty, but then my Dell U2515H was delivered and I saw what 2560 x 1440 was like and WOW... it's amazing! :eek:

I found that 3840 x 2160 on a 27" monitor is way too much, everything is too small. For me 2560 x 1440 is ideal.

You definitely need really good eyesight for that resolution! You are correct!

I run a 28" 4K UHD monitor, but Windows 10 does a pretty good job of scaling all of the icons and text, so it works out well. When I'm reviewing/editing images, the extra screen resolution is SO nice to have.

If you're on Windows 7/8/8.1, I understand the scaling isn't as good.
