Default 28\" Monitors

Does anyone have any experience with either of these 28" monitors or 28" monitors in general? Would you recomend them over a 24"Samsung? I'm looking to upgrade my secondary laptop monitor.

I'd be sure that you're lappy can drive that many pixels before dropping a lot of money on an almost 30" monitor.

I got my 28" HannsG in yesterday but haven't hooked it up yet. Its $499 at Costco, FYI. Will try to update this weekend after I get to use it.

Yea, they are 1920x1200 which my laptop can drive, which is why I'm looking at these and not 30"ers (which my laptop can't drive).

Just hooked up my HannsG. So far so good. Has one dead pixel in upper left screen area but thats not too bad for a monitor this size. Its not that noticeable.

12 tables fit nicely and are still good sized. Makes my 20" dell like a baby next to it. This thing is huge!

I've read of this trick for fixing dead pixels, though I don't have any experience with it myself. web page

Thanks for the tip. I tried it but it didn't work. Just flickered a few times when it came back on.

No big deal, as I can't even see its there unless its a dark image on that spot.
