You're talking about a 30"? You could just get a TV with HDMI for that price.

But the TV won't have 2560*1600.

Dell has some great monitors at that resolution, as does Apple.

It really depends on what you'll be using this monitor for - if you're gonna be doing high-end gaming, or programming, or CAD, then I'd definitely say go with a 2560*1600. If you're just doing normal browsing and gaming, then the 2560*1600 probably isn't worth the extra cost.

i was basicly thinking it would be nice for gaming.... i was just hoping to hear from somebody who has one and if one brand may be better than another.... and now that i have been looking at them more, i wonder if i need 2560 x 1600 or if maybe i should go for 2560 x 1440... oh yea, and btw... i dont care much about screen size, i will be using it as a monitor and sitting 2 feet away from it
