    I'm running the new Mac Pro with 3x displays:
    Apple Thunderbolt Display (2560 x 1440)
    HP LA1905 (900 x 1440)
    HP LA2405 (1920 x 1200)

    I'd like have more pixels. Don't play games, and video performance isn't a priority. I do spend 10-12hrs/day in front of the display though, and since I'm over 40 and presbyopic I currently wear +1.25 reading glasses.

    Has anyone compared these displays? Any impressions?

    The ASUS is about 6 times more expensive....

    There's also the Dell P2815Q.

    Forget the Seiki and the Dell, they only run at max 30Hz when at full resolution. That's OK for watching video, but too slow to even move the mouse pointer around the screen smoothly. The currently available 32" models (Asus, Sharp, Dell) are too expensive...though some hefty discounts can now be had from certain retailers.

    My suggestion is to wait...several newer options are coming on the market soon from LG and others...perhaps even Apple...

    OS X 10.3 will bring 60Hz support for the Dell ones at least (confirmed by users of developer builds with Dell UP2414Q 4K monitor) and probably the others as well but to be confirmed.

    No it won't, that Dell is 30Hz ONLY. The 24, and 32" ones can get 60Hz with the Update, and can already get 60Hz in Windows.

    The 28" one is a cheap TN panel and only 30Hz at most. I'd stay well clear of it. Especially with Asus, Samsung and Lenovo bringing out similar priced 28" monitors that can handle 60Hz.

    Instead of the ASUS, you might as well consider the Dell UltraSharp UP3214Q, as it's the same size with the same resolution and refresh rate, but $500 less expensive.

    Thanks for the tip. I hadn't seen that one. Any experience with it?
