Greetings,

I currently own two U2412m monitors from Dell but am thinking of upgrading to twin U2711m from Dell.

Has anyone done this upgrade and how much of a difference did you see just from the size comparison?

D800 w/grip, D700 w/grip,V1,14-24mm F/2.8, 24-70mm F/2.8, 70-200mm F/2.8, 200-400mm F/4, 105mm,F/2.8,35mm F/1.4,35mm F/1.8, 85mm F/1.4,1.7x Tele

I have a 27" iMac and looking to replace my cheapy 17" secondary Samsung with the Dell U2412M 24" for my secondary (how do you like yours?).

I can tell you that 27" is plenty of real estate.

I can't really comment on the upgrade to 27". But wanted to ask you. Of course bigger is better for sure, but what did you find with your current setup that was not working for you. I was going to upgrade to dual 24" from my single 21" setup. Maybe i should go up to 27" no sure if its worth it. Thanks

I am not a big fan of monitors over 24" except for TVs. Sometimes they can be handy for programs like Lightroom but I always feel like you have to move them pretty far away and that defeats the purpose. Instead I suggest getting 2 or 3 monitors hooked up to the same machine which will dramatically improve your productivity vs one big monitor.

It's not really the size; 24" monitors are plenty big for me to do any work and to game on, but it's the limitations that my current monitors have as far as colors go. My current setup only allows for true 6 bit with a fake 8 bit color they do and only do 98% of the sRGB spectrum and 72% gamut. While the 27's I'm looking at will do 98% of Adobe RGB and has 110% gamut and has true 8 bit color with it going to 10 bit.

It's not the size, but more color accuracy that I'm looking at getting.

I already have dual 24" monitors hooked up to my Alienware M18x; I'm just looking for better color accuracy.

Have you looked into IPS monitors?

I am not entirely sure how limited they are in term of color (not really good at those technical color stuff LOL) but I noticed with my LG IPS234v 23"(the cheapest IPS I can find) that the colors greatly improved compared to the TN monitors (most monitors are TN).

Found them a lot more accurate and I just had to manipulate the colors ever so slightly to do so.

There are far better IPS monitors out there compared to mine, so you should give it a try. =]

The monitors I have now do have IPS panels. I won't buy anything that wasn't IPS.
