    I am trying to decide between the two. 24" or 30" ? The difference is that with the 30" I can play HD / Blu-Ray movies and in general have higher resolution.

    Are the two (outside of size and price) that different?

    inputs - I am using their high-end monitors as displays for every device in the room (hdmi, DVI etc). make sure you don't need those before playing with the plastic.

    Trust me, 24" is your number.

    Working on a 30" will be horrible - a 30" won't be able to compensate a high resolution - the text will look all small and that; not to mention will completely f*ck your eyes up after about 6 months.

    If I were you, I would get a 24" monitor, and a "30 inch TV for your movies! =)

    That's just my opinion.

    24" is the best for now, based on my own judgment. Maybe try to see their features.

    I have 2x 19" right now, i couldnt deal with just one screen. if anything to 2x 24" eventually im going to move to a 30" plus 2x 24" on the sides. but ill need to see how the 30" actually looks first.

    Two 24 inch monitors, now that's the way to go. I like using two monitors to keep my work organized.

    I have a 24" and if you do a lot of work on your pc, dual monitors from 22" to 24" would be pefect, if you like to keep 10+ windows open at time like me ;)

    24" seems to be the perfect fit, 30" is getting too big. I have 24" and 17" its awesome
