Summary: I bought one of these monitors off Amazon about a year ago and it has worked fine. I love the larger pixel pitch for my old eyes. I bought a second unit a couple months ago for use at work, and within one month it stopped working (white screen of death). Evidently this is a fairly common fault with this monitor. Since Hanns G has no local service depot, I had to mail it back to them in Southern California for repair.
Summary: I use big monitors for photo processing in a duo display mode. I have an HP 22" that came with my Media Center desktop, a 24" Samsung, and this. The Hanns G is clearly the biggest not just by the number. The picture actually is a lot bigger side by side. The text display is much better than the Samsung. The screen is brighter, and so is the contrast. But the dynamic range of the color is only so so. It's especially bad with shades of dark colors.
