    Monitor recommendation
    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a large monitor to go with my new MacBook Pro. I'm basically looking for the highest screen size to cost ratio I can get, which means I basically want the best ~27" monitor I can get for <$400, even if that means picture and other features aren't quite perfect. I'll be using this for work, not games, so I don't need ridiculous performance; I just want it to be of high enough quality that it won't have dead pixels and the like.

    Here are the 3 I've found so far. None of them seem to stand out as really being better than the rest. Are there any other recommendations out there?

    ViewSonic 27" - Amazon.com: ViewSonic’s VX2739WM 27-Inch 1920x1080 Full HD Monitor: Electronics

    HP 27" - Amazon.com: HP 2710m 27-Inch Diagonal HD Ready LCD Monitor - Black: Computer & Accessories

    Samsung 27" - Amazon.com: Samsung P2770H 27-Inch Widescreen Touch of Color LCD Monitor - Rose…

    Thanks!
    Chris

    Thanks for the links!

    That's 3 more 27" monitors than I thought were available. In case you didn't notice...all three of these 27" monitors have a resolution of 1920 x 1080...which is the same resolution you can get out of a 23"-24" monitor that can cost less than $200.

    For example:

    For $159.00: http://www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?sku=210917291

    For $139.00: http://shopping.yahoo.com/#woot

    For comparison...the new Apple 27" iMac has a resolution of 2560 x 1440...MUCH more than any of the three monitors you linked. So I just wanted you to know that not all 27" monitors/displays are the same.

    Good luck,
