    Hey guys, debating whether to get this monitor or not. The number of reviews with dead pixels makes me pause, though. Newegg reviews aside, how is Hanns-G quality in general? Would be doing a lot of gaming on it. It's a monster...26", 1080p

    Edit: Caved & bought it :cool:

    Anyone who has had/got a 27" 2560x1440 will tell you a 27" 1920x1080 is a terrible decision. Anyone who a 27" 1920x1080 whos never seen a 27" 2560x1400 will tell you they are amazing.

    I have neither though :(

    The short screen is very often not accommodated well, cutting stuff off the bottom in games and web pages. I just stopped using a 1440x1050 that I had on a media pc (has HDMI for bluray playback preview when the big screen isn't on). Its fine for watching a movie, generally terrible for text or web stuff or games.

    I got it hooked up, and it has a dead pixel :mad: gonna try to revive it. It's a pretty nice monitor otherwise.
