Regs: i'm not buying any more monitors until the new stocks of touch enabled ones start hitting the market as a result of the Windows 8 release.... when they arrive in bulk, non-touch panels might drop a little


I'd love to see pricing for a 27" IPS 1440p with touch :-) #Windows8TheNextVista




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

So, it looks like a decent 27" costs around the $1000 mark for one with a resolution that makes the extra size worthwhile (apart from the Catleap monitors mentioned earlier).

I've got a 27" 1440p PC Bank monitor. Cost like $300 USD including shipping and I paid no tax on it. Amazing quality....

Think there was a slightly cheaper dell on PB's site when I was looking and trying to get work to get one for the new computer. Need it to do cad with 4 viewports and be able to see anything.

Yeah, I cant recall if it was 799 or 899 but it was something that I got work thinking about so it wasnt too excessive.

It looks like it's $899 ex GST, so $1033 incl. GST. Cheaper than buying directly from Dell, which seems a little odd.

I just got one off trademe.27" $580 (new) 2550 x 1440. no dead pix. 6mths Wty.

Wow what a difference. I had a 26" 1900x1200 and i thought that was nice. The new one is amazing.
Games look great.

Would be hard to go back to xxxx x 1200 or 1080.
