PLANAR PXL2760MW Black 27

Pros: Excellent color with some settings. If my (your) graphics card is set to RGB the color is way wrong and the back light is simply way to bright and text is wildly over-sharpened. Setting the color space to YCbCr444 cures the color and back-light/black point problem. Then setting the color mode to 'TEXT' cures the over-sharpening bit and then delivers a monitor with excellent color balance and a fairly (to very) sophisticated visual feel to it. With these settings this monitor is the most color accurate of all the many monitors I have used over the last 25 years.
I find zero value in the normal, movie and game presets.
My two sets (dual monitor setup) are in excellent harmony with each other and are delivering a very excellent picture that allows fine tuning color throughout the value range and around the whole hue wheel.
These units use 24 watts of power as measured by my measuring tool.
They are straight ahead units design wise, which is fine for me, visually they are fine.
The base is largish, fortunately I have a fairly large and deep desk.
After a bit of a freak-out over getting them setup right I am pleased. As long as they continue to operate in good health I will be very pleased.
This is a fairly not known company and I was not going to try them until I saw that they own Runco, who make extremely expensive video projectors. I figured they must know something about color if they own Runco, and that seems to be born out here. They also make very expensive industrial monitors, so I hope durability is built in.

Cons: hard to setup, regular settings are way over sharpened, no sharpening control. Color controls are limited, fortunately for me II want a color correct and calibrated monitor and this seems to be what I have here. Would like more controls, though, or at least the ones here not being locked when you choose a preset.
The manual and website are fairly spartan.
