The Dell UltraSharp U2713HM is an excellent monitor that will satisfy both the performance snob and the features diva alike. The HP ZR2740w sacrifices customization to deliver a powerful monitor at a reasonable price. The Samsung SyncMaster S27A850D is a well-designed, stylish, professional monitor with great options and performance. The Asus PA248Q is a low-priced IPS monitor that doesn't skimp on performance or features.
