For the last few weeks I've noticed some dead spots starting to develop on my current monitor. BTW, my current monitor is a HP 2709m 27". So I've been looking into replacing this monitor and am finding it difficult to to decide what I want. Well anyway, I've kinda narrowed my search down some this weekend and am kinda liking this monitor; http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TR0518U?gwSec=1&redirect=true&ref_=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_i1 Would like some opinions from anybody with a monitor that uses a 21.9 aspect ratio. It's new territory to me and it's been hard to find any review on the above monitor. The one thing I do know is that I don't want to go smaller screen size. I do most of my TV watching on my monitor nowadays and watch a few movies also.
