isn't Quad HD generally regarded as 4*1920x1080 rather than just 4*1280x720 ?

No - officially, that's QFHD (Quad Full High Definition.) EDIT: Although 'Quad HD' is more properly termed WQHD - Wide Quad High Definition.

I think you should have just put 1440p, or simply 2560x1440, instead of Quad HD, because with the advent of 4K screens around the corner people are already using the term Quad HD (as in 4x 1080p and not 4x 720p) to refer to 4K displays. I'v seen it numerous times across the net. Such as here and here.

I know you're technically correct, but it just helps un-muddy the water.

"Samsung has opted not to include an HDMI cable with the display."

I thought HDMI only supported 1920x1080 anyway.

Wow that's pricey.
Must admit, when I saw Quad HD I was expecting more than 1440p....
Not sure why anyone would choose this over something like the U2711?

Nup - HDMI 1.4 is quite happy with 3840x2160 (which, interestingly, Wikipedia calls Quad HD, despite calling it QFHD elsewhere.)

Would rather stick with my Dell 27" IPS as it looks a lot better, not glossy frame. I really can not understand why monitor makers feel the need to make everything glossy.

Is PLS any better than IPS?


I was thinking of getting a 2nd U2410, put if PLS is better than IPS, I'll have to look at that route (*le wait for goodbytes to write a lengthy response explaining EVERYTHING)

Mmm... That's nice! Not sure why it's only got USB2 hub though, surely USB3 would be reasonable? It's not like the spec is new, and it's only a hub circuit squashed into a monitor casing.

Just going off what I remember, it is extremely similar to IPS displays. However, in the displays which currently use PLS, they have better AG coating than found in typical IPS ones, such as the Dell Ultrasharps, as it is not as grainy or sparkly. This may be why they appear to have better contrast and black depth too.

I know Linus believes the PLS monitor he tried had the best viewing angles he'd ever seen.

The bit about being able to play video and sound from one's phone while also charging it sounds pretty nifty, I have to say. Other than that I was expecting a higher resolution like GeorgeStorm.

Samsung SyncMaster S27A850D looks better imho with the thinner frame and square foot-stand. Also all black!

Allready available and cheaper using the same panel.

There's really nothing tangible to recommend this monitor over the Dell U2711. That says something, doesn't it...

Go walk into an Apple store tomorrow and compare the matte Macbook Pro's with a glossy Macbook Pro. Once you do you will understand why monitor makers feel the need to make everything glossy.
