    I have my HP Envy 15 hooked up to a LG E2441 24" LED panel which is used as primary monitor with the laptop screen as secondary.

    Thinking of getting a Dell U2711 and running two monitors off my laptop. Texasrho83, how you finding the U2711?

    I don't prefer larger displays. Two 21.5" (or maybe 23") 1080p monitors are my preferred. Unless it was an iMac with a huge display, or maybe a higher resolution monitor than 1080p, I wouldn't want anything larger on my desk.

    It is fun to hook up the computer to a huge TV every once in a while to watch a movie, game, or share things with other people, but for every day use it is not as good.

    That's a good point. That's kinda where HTPC's come into the picture. If you have it set up on a good home network, just pull it down from there and you're off.

    As far as monitors go though, Ostendo CRVD. 'Nuff said. I'd settle for getting just one, but I really want three, but that would be ~$19.5k worth of display. :eek:

    I could be cheeky and say CVRD = [/monitor thread], but surely there are other impressive ones out there.

    I edited this to break the links. I learned that I stepped in the marketing in thinking this thing was cool.

    I have an HTPC hooked up to a Mitsubishi HC9000. Does that count? :D

    That said, I don't think anything larger than 24" is ideal for competitive gaming.

    Well for gaming, people are ranting and raving about the Samsung S27A950D. I stunning looking monitor (really has to be seen in person), plus 120hz and excellent colours. Only thing I'm not a fan of is the lowish res of 1920 x 1080 on such a big monitor.

    Why I'm tossing up between the Samsung and the Dell U2711. The Dell has the awesome resolution, but costs a lot more, plus I'm not so sure any laptop is going to be able to drive that massive resolution in gaming...

    But.. they said size didn't matter?! Liars.

    I use a 24" u2412m. It's sufficient. If only I had an IMAX screen. Sigh.
