Pros: Color rendition is excellent. Brightness is ridiculous (but can be toned down to a good level). Build quality and attention to detail are very good. Having a full 1200 pixel height is nice compared to most of the TV-spec panels out there for cheaper. Color adjustment controls built-in are quite good, and allow for very good color matching. Colors don't shift (although brightness goes down) when viewing off-angle. Stand is stable and easily adjustable through a large range of motion. Matte surface doesn't reflect ambient light like a gloss surface would.
Cons: Very expensive for what is ultimately a not-huge improvement over panels that cost 1/3 as much. No CF/SD card reader. USB hub ports are fiddly to reach without actually peering around the bezel. The stand is enormously deep -- good place to stick the laptop (a 15" MacBook Pro), but pretty annoying if I were using a desktop computer.
Other Thoughts: I bought this monitor for graphics and photography use, and am generally very pleased with it. I was surprised to find that the 2000-era Apple Cinema Display I upgraded from (which, granted, was a very fine, $2000-ish panel in its day) offered very similar quality, image-wise. This monitor didn't show any real jump in quality, beyond being a bit better at viewing off-angle.READ FULL REVIEW
