Summary: Professionals must buy, worth the price. Prints are identical to what is seen on the screen. On screen display give you options for many professional color spaces that are factory calibrated and VERY accurate. There is no dithering, there is no bleeding. Stand allows for height, tilt, swivel, and turn (VESA mounts too!). Calibrated according to HP lasts 1000 hours, but, it lasts much longer than that.
Summary: To those questioning the $2400 price tag on this monitor. Here's why it's so expensive: this monitor has enough colour depth (that is, it's able to display enough colors) that it can match the most data-intensive, colour-rich media formats available. Most consumer LCD's display 8-bit color; that is, they are capable of displaying around 16 million colors. That's plenty for most uses and for the average user.
