Protect your eyes, with the Dell U2711 monitor
This is a troubleshooting post against eye fatigue, but the solution it proposes is not free, it costs about $ 800, and is called Dell UltraSharp U2711. It is an amazing 27 inch monitor, featuring a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels (make sure your video card can handle this resolution), a quality H-IPS panel, ergonomic construction and superb aesthetics. [You may like to read instead about the successor of this monitor, the Dell U2713H. Note that this was replaced by Dell UP2716D, the main difference being the thin bezels.

I don’t know why a large monitor would be kind to the eyes — perhaps it is its 2560 resolution and the sharpness that comes out of it, I don’t know, yet the result is indeed surprising: less or none at all eye fatigue. But, I owe a more detailed review to anyone who uses a computer many hours a day: do not think that a monitor of $ 300 – 400 is “good enough”. It is not. It is unacceptable. You will understand this when you buy a high end monitor such as Dell u2711.
As briefly as possible, the main features of this Dell creation are: sharp, detailed, images, clarity, great colors and color consistency, text like sculpture, plenty of desktop space, and -although the monitor is big- less eye fatigue!, thanks to the abilities of performing miraculously even in low brightness and contrast levels.
