Summary: I purchased 2 of these 21" and 1 Gateway FPD2485W (24") for my Mac Pro. I got them because they where the second best for color for photographers under $1000. Apple Cinema`s being #1 under $1k. Well I have issues after 2 years. One the digital out will not work and had to switch to a analog cable. This worked for 3 months and now it goes black at random. I can turn it off and back on and it works or (mostly) doesn't. The other one is starting to flicker.
It had such potential... a pity. But for general purpose work isn't entirely bad.

Summary: I work with graphics design. I read a number of reviews before buying this model, and gave it a try anyway. I found some similarities and some differences to what others were saying, but overall this monitor is a disappointment: First the bad points: 1. In order to see as much color range (gamut) as possible you have to tilt the thing slightly to the left. This alone makes working with images annoying and is a considerable design flaw.
