For the last 3 monitor sets I have been buying the Samsung 2443 Series 24" Monitors with a 1900x1200 resolution. The last lot of 3 I bought 6 months ago I am not that happy with, I can't seem to get a good colour/contrast setting for and I can't find recommended settings. I am thinking of replacing them, and getting 3 more. I am toying with the idea of 27" but I am quite set on 1900x1200, with adjustable bases thin bezel and exceptional picture. I do a fair amount of gaming and want to be sure of no ghosting or any other issues. I also do a massive amount of office/web type work and watching of TV/Movies so they need to be excellent all around.

Dell Ultrasharp are off the cards, right off the bat for reasons I'd rather not get into.

Happy to spend $500-700 per monitor for something exceptional, and shortly I guess I'll have 3 of these monitors still under warranty for sale.

I'm not sure if there is a question in your post, however do let me know when you want to sell one of your 27" monitors :)

Perhaps you can get one of those special monitor tuning/calibrators, or can borrow one. People who post of photography forums always have them and tent to lend them out.

My old Dell 2407WFP was wonderful, I've been tempted to get one of the new ones (2410) to replace my el-cheapo (but very good for the price) Viewsonic. Any basic reason why you're not keen, or is it a bit involved?

Let me know when you want to flick the Sammy's though, I might be keen on one depending what model of 2443 they are.

They are the 2443BW+'s

I am seriously considering the IPS-P Asus, the red racing stripe is horrible though

Let me know what you are thinking pricewise (without being silly please)
