    Does anyone in the forum have experience with the 2 monitors I listed.
    Both are under 350.00, much less than apple cinema display.

    Samsung LED from newegg
    viewsonic LCD from amazon

    Will be using with 13" i7 macbook pro.
    Will be using mostly photoshop, nothing crazy.
    please if you have one of these monitors let me know.

    thanks in advance !!!!!

    Both are 1080P (1920x1080), so the 27" ACD has ~70% greater resolution (2560x1440).

    LED is where the future is, I would highly recommend the samsung. I own a samsung led tv and I will say the picture and color contrast is absolutely stunning.

    I don't think he was asking about the ACD and also try doubling the price on it. He could buy two samsung led and still have extra cash left over. Moving up from 1280x800 to 1920x1080 is already a leap.

    Um...that's a 33% greater resolution...Oh, ne'ermind. I guess that is 78% more pixels. To me, the comparison of vertical lines (assuming both displays are the same aspect ratio as they are here) is a more practical approach than comparing the pixel number. It's going to feel more like 33% more room than 78.
