Well for what other purpose would they be? Also, you sit relatively far away from TVs generally, limiting the impact of angles somewhat. TN probably only goes into the cheapest sets though, with various VA varieties making up the higher brackets I would think.

I know there's a crap-ton of TN-paneled TV's, but I"m sure those are the 'cost optimized' models too.

Welp, U2711 it is.

Dude on CraigsList had several that he sold directly out of his house (complete with kids, wife and cat heh.) We opened one up, tossed it on his desk, ran through an LCD checker tool to ensure no dead/stuck pixels, visited the Dell website to confirm 1080 remaining days of warranty on this service tag, packed it back up and I took it home for $685.

Quite happy

I find it hard to believe he'd throw in the cat. Wife and kids sure.

Congratulations, Albu!

It's 27" for life now for me. Nothing less can satisfy me now that I've tasted the honey sweetness such a large screen estate offers.

Enjoy your purchase. It's undoubtedly a very good one!

I'm not sure packing in a wife + kids with the purchase of a Monitor is a good deal. All that additional hassle just to own a nice monitor.

Regards,
SB

LOL @ the replies I do NOT need any more wives or kids at my house, kthxbye!

The 7970 at 1150/1525 chews through most anything at this rez. Glad I upgraded from the 5850...

Wow. Talk about a noticeable upgrade! Based on the chronology I don't think you ever had the 5850 driving the new monitor though, right?

No, but I still have the 5850 in a box. I could always drag it out and see what Crysis does to that poor thing at this rez

Despite the soothing words from your significant other, size DOES matter!
