I started with dual 24" monitors so I could have a 1080p preview but found turning my head everytime to watch the preview / then go back to the timeline was annoying.

So moving to a single 30" monitor at 2560 x 1600, I got a full 720p preview with plenty of room for a timeline. In the picture it's rendering so the image is half 1080p, (960 x 540) but normally it'd fill out to the edges and be 1280 x 720...

Thx again.
Are you using the monitor for video previewing or grading or just for your computer monitor

For professional work, Dell, Apple and other volume sellers are low end. It's not about "looking good", it's about color accuracy.

Here's up a step:
NEC Display Solutions MultiSync LCD2490WUXi-BK-SV

NEC apparently provides panels to many smaller companies. I don't know about the high end. I do think its good to have a display with 1:1 pixel mapping from HDMI.

Joe, FWIW, I agree on the single 30". I have tried multiple monitors on several occasions and for same reason I've always gone back to single configuration.

I use a JVC broadcast monitor already for color accuracy, and that is more than enough for me.

The HP is a reasonably priced 30" solution that I like very much, best quality for the money.

My current older dell 2405 FPW is remarkably accurate for colors and I have purchased several newer monitors with great reviews only to find they are not as good as my current one. I ended up returning them all. I am staying with my currentl 24" until I move to a 30".

Don't buy that JVC from Amazon. That is an older model. They since have come out with an L2 followed recently by an L3 version. We bought our L3 version recently from our regional video dealer for $3200 (US funds). Comes with HD-SDI inputs, a built-in waveform monitor, audio level monitor and time code display. Here it is for sale from B&H Photo/Video:

JVC | 24" LCD MONITOR W/HD-SDI & WAVEFORM | DT-V24L3DU

BTW for those who might even want a smaller monitor, Vizio has just released a native 1920 x 1080 1080P LCD set. VIZIO VA22LF

It's smaller than the DELL, only weighs 11lbs and is 2.5" thick.
Which I just picked up and I must say it's pretty sweet. It has any connection that you might need HDMI, Component, Composite, AF, S-Video, Computer RGB, 5.1 SPFIF, Headphone out and more.

It also has some nice picture adjustments, which includes the ability to turn OFF the DNC setting (Dynamic Noise Control). This is important to me, as I have passed on many set tops, due to the fact that you can't easily turn off DNC, and as a result your picture levels keep changing to the manufacturers white levels. Thus you could never properly calibrate your monitor, as after you calibrated your set, the contrast levels would change immediately after you calibrate it.

BTW, I just posted a review of the Vizio VA22LF on my Tools of the Trade Blog. REVIEW of VIZIO VA22LF (22" 1080P) TV

For an actual computer monitor I would want 1200 tall, not just 1080. The 1080 high would be nice for video display, dependent upon how well it can be calibrated.

I know that my Dell 2408WFP is 1920 x 1200 so it displays as expected (with slim black bars top and bottom) with Full HD video.

Spec-wise, it looks great. For the price, this seems like a very sweet deal...but would have to see on how well it performs for color accuracy, compatibility (with specific apps, graphics cards, etc...) and reliability.
