Keen to know, cheers
Hanns-G HG281D. I wouldn't really recommend it. I would have gotten a smaller screen with the same 1920x1200 because 28" is excessive. I'm not sure about switching over to IPS or MVA panels because I'm a little scared of ghosting issues I've heard so much about. It's nice to have an external monitor though, for sure.
This is my current monitor http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-2443BWT-24-Inch-Widescreen-Adjustable/dp/B001T0HXE6 by the way
I use a viewsonic monitor that is great. It is full HD and it's 22''; great monitor to use.
Dell 2209WA. It is an IPS panel, and the image quality is outstanding. I don't play many games, but I'll try to look for ghosting next time I do. They claim 5ms response time, which should be plenty.
We need to buy the Mini port to DVI adapter, dont we?
You would, but my MBP has DVI built in. Dell makes some monitors (not this one) with a full size displayport, but then you still need a MDP-DP cable or adapter, which are not common.
Dell 2407WFP. Had it for three years. Still very happy with it.
I have a Dell 3008WFP I use with my MBP connected via Displayport. Getting the minDP->DP cable was easy. I paid about $5 for it from Monoprice. You can also get it from Amazon.
Apple 24" LED display. It's the same resolution as my 17" MacBook pro so I use it in synchronized mode almost all the time.
24" Apple LED Display
A Soyo monitor, worst monitor ever made. The screen flickers off and on, the screen jitters and is practically unusable about 40% of the time until you hit the monitor hard enough to get it to stop flickering. I'm not kidding, you actually have to hit the monitor to get it to work. The warranty is nonexistent.
Monoprice has them.
23" Apple Cinema Display
Once I get a new MacBook Pro, I might be getting the new 27" LED display.
Then the 23" goes on the auction block!
My 13" MBP (and my previous 13" MB) are connected to a 21" Sony LCD panel (VGA so I have to have a converter to it). Don't remember model number, I've had it for quite a few years now and am quite happy with it (this is the third computer I've used it with, I go through computers faster than I go through monitors).
This is why it confuses me why people think that 13" is too small. I just connect it to a monitor at home where I mostly use my macbook and 13" is a great compromise between easy to port around and sacrificing some screen space when I travel/take my laptop somewhere.
20" AOC. Inexpensive, but works very nicely.
Does the 3008 require a dual link DVI connector? Such is the case with my 3007, so I chose to stick with a 24" soyo p-MVA monitor.
EDIT>>>> I just reviewed the Displayport connector..... NM
Hp 2159M, 1080P, dvi and hdmi inputs, small speakers(good enough for my moderate xbox playing).
Screen isn't too reflective, reproduces color as good or better than the MBP's, and is LED backlit, no complaints.
