    Choosing the right monitor (or at least a right series)


    So I've got 3 display setup. Or at least I had as the newest one was damaged (blinking screen, "blinking" vertical lines and temporary power off, but with signal still being passed to the GPU).

    Now I have just two displays and am looking for a third one.
    Both I have are Samsung Bussiness S24E650 (PL variant), so I need something (almost) identicak, meaning Samsung S24 monitor. I have them rotated to stand vertically and in Eyefinity so at least similar in size display area.

    Knowing this requirement(s) and what I can (and want) pay for it I got 3 candidates:
    1. Next S24E650 (PL or DW) as it will exactly match what I already have. It has DP and HDMI ports. Disadventage of this choice is a price - there is no E modeks for a price I paid before, so I would have add ~50$).
    2. S24C650 (didn't ask what model yet, but BW I think from I know about it) - older model, however almost exactly same as E. Almost as the one I found have only DVI and VGA ports (no problem for Eyefinity, but...). Here I would still have few bucks left on my account.
    3. H series monitor - S24H650GDU to be exact. Its adventage is that it is never one. Disadventage is 3 mm narrower (in vertical setup) display area and different back panel (but who looks at the back of their monitors?). Here I would spend all I got back, as it cost almost same I paid for E/PL.


    Is the 3 mm so much? I think it is so little that there is like no difference at all.
    Anyone had used C or H series? Or even exactly this models? I'm looking for any "unofficial" data about them I can get.

    Before finding H I almost bought C, as it's cheaper than E. Now I would say I'm #teamH.

    PS. Only this 3 models are on the menu, so pls don't post other options. Don't look for one bigger display as well.

    Your main concern would be,

    Which screen do i want to use as the main centre screen?

    Concentrate on quality on the centre screen as a priority, which in turn will be needed on the two other outer screens.
    There are options of running the main centre screen on one graphics card, and running the two outer screens on another card, so the two outer screens quality may not be so important.

    With Eyefinity you can spread the load.
    Focus on efficiency
