    I've got that itch again (New LCD)

    Well I've got that itch again to get a bigger display and really want to scratch it. What are your thoughts on these 28' displays?

    Hanns·G HG-281DPB = $349.99 + Free Shipping

    Viewsonic X Series VX2835WM = $399.99 (after $50 mail in rebate) + Free Shipping

    As a previous post of mine stated I am looking for some more realistate to work with. I also do gaming as well as watch some movies on it so that needs to be factored in too.

    I've read reviews on both and for every 5 positive there seems to be one negative that keeps me from pulling the trigger.

    Does anyone here have any first hand experience with either model and/or care to give your thoughts if you don't have any experience with them?

    Any input is greatly appreciated.

    28" seems big to me personally.

    But hey if that's what you want to do.

    I would look at the Viewsonic from those two choices, another brand I would recommend looking at is Samsung.

    28" sounds like a Gamer talking. I am trying to hold out for an LED LCD @ 28".

    28inches is way to big to be sitting in front of (desk and chair distance), unless of course your chair is on the back wall.

    don't forget a bigger display will ideally need a more powerful GPU, as it'll be running in a higher resolution, plus all those jaggies will look even bigger which means more anti-aliasing needed to retain the same image quality.

    For TV's I agree that bigger is better, but for gaming monitors I do think there's a happy medium especially if, as whatsupdoc says, you're going to be sat just a couple of feet away from it.

    we have a 24" wide lcd at work and it is hard to see the entire screen without having to turn your head when you are at a comfortable text reading distance.

    that said, these larger screens do come in handy when you have multiple windows only.
