Re: Which 27'' screen to buy

I’ve been eyeing an IPS screen since stepping up to my Canon G1X last year and paying more attention to bit depth of the RAW files, etc.  I was originally checking out 24/23” screens and noticed this new Asus display out:

Any word on this one?  I see the big hit on it is that it’s 1080p, but for the price that seems pretty standard – unless you are looking to spend over $500.

It’s AH-IPS, which I gather is a newer incarnation of IPS.  Not sure what makes it special really.  Frankly, I’m not as well informed as I should be before buying probably.  I’m guessing that I’m not going to see ‘high end’ features on the budget offerings anyway really – which would be all that I am in the market for.

Does a 27” 1080 just look dumb?  Not really fitting ‘more’ on it, but just big giant everything?  Like if I’m running Premiere; I’m not really going to gain more space for the timeline vertically to see more videos/audio, etc.?
