Default ASUS VS278Q-P vs. Dell U2412M? Buying today!

Dear all,

I'm gonna buy either the ASUS VS278Q-P or the Dell U2412M. I KNOW the Dell is significantly better quality, etc. But the Asus is 27'' which is quite desirable, and on newegg got good reviews. I cannot afford the U2711.

I will be using it for (a) watching (at most) 1080p movies, and (b) programming (large screen real-estate is a HUGE help when I'm programming).

Please let me know what you guys think. Feel free to recommend other stuff too.

Thanks,
-DV

Dell.

You can always make the Dell "larger" by moving it closer to your face. You can never make the Asus show 1920x1200 pixels.
