    So I currently have the HP 2159m 21.5" 1080p display but I want to go bigger now. What should I upgrade to?

    What's your budget and use? and what size do you want to upgrade too?

    I think dell displays are awesome...24inch HD display is for $250-$300

    Up to $300. I'll be using it for movies/web/graphics and some photo editing. I don't need something professional though.. I would like a glossy display more than matte but I think the best ones will be by HP.. So I think it's between Samsung and HP.
    I searched around and came up with the Samsung P2450H - 24" and the HP 2509m - 25"

    IMO, for glossy, HP wins. For non glossy, Dell Ultrasharp. The Dell U2410 I think is an IPS display. Little pricey but a beautiful display for much less than the IPS Apple cinema display.

    There are refurb HPs you can get. Search these forums becuase I've linked a number of displays that were > 23" and under $300.

    I am too looking to buy the HP2509m. I also like the fact that it will match the whole Apple design with the new MBP. I almost looks like the Apple Cinema Display.
