Pros: Spot on color. Solid feel and construction. Beautiful anti glare screen. Six axis Hue and Saturation controls built in grid overlays for cm, in rule of thirds, A4, Letter, 8x10, 5x7. 4x6, 3x5. 2x2(US passport).
Picture in Picture DisplyPort out for Daisy Chaining multiple displays.
For what this Monitor does I can't believe it is so reasonably priced. Just a great value all around for me.

Cons: To utilize the 10bits per channel you need a workstation card which are quite expensive unless you know were to look. Even then it isn't really necessary and turning on 10bit output on you card will disable Windows Aero in Win7 and all the peak features in Win7 and 8.

Also the pre-calibrated color modes Adobe 1988 RGB and sRGB represent those color spaces very well however I print to an Epson 9900 from Photoshop and no matter what color space I was set up in in Photoshop the matching Color mode on the Monitor did not give me matching colors in my prints. I had to tweak one of the User Modes matching it to several test prints until I got the colors locked in. Now I get EXACTLY what I see on my screen no matter the color profile I am using in Photoshop.

Other Thoughts: I do a lot of artwork reproductions and for me this monitor is going to save me so much time and money. Time and Money that was wasted printing prints over and over because my Dell UltraSharp U2312HM's 8bit panel could never display the colors I was trying to find.
It goes something like this. So I would make a print, check the print against my monitor, Hmm the blues in my print are too red. OK. lets add some yellow to them. (not much changes on the screen) reprint DOH, blues are turning green in my print now. OK. let's dial back the yellow. reprint, Dang now their too red again. And back and forth and back and forth. You get the picture.

That has become a thing of the past thanks to this monitor
