My 27" 1080 HD ISP display looks great. For those now labelling 1080 "low res", ask them why they're settling for low-res 1440, when they can have 2560 x 1600 -or even wait for real HD in an OLED display.

Justify it any way you want to, but 1080p is low res on a monitor this big considering it doesn't show you more information than your average $130 21" screen.  I use a 1080p 27" monitor at work next to a 1920x1200 24" monitor and there is a BIG difference.   Others in our office have 27" HP all-in-one Xeon workstations at 1440 and the difference is staggering (better). Personally I would not consider a monitor this big at 1080p unless I had a vision problem or like sitting 3 feet away from it.
