Summary: I bought this about 10 month ago and been performing great. Very solid design, easy to adjust and the colors are great. I alrady have the calibration software and the analyser from a NEC screen I bough 5 years ago (The old screen is still going strong bought the new one to get to a dual monitor...
Excerpt: The monitor has a low refresh rate of 60Hz. Most have at least 120Hz.Customer Service is horrible. Ordered 2 cables. Parts Department ordered a wrong cable. I provided them with the Model # of the monitor and the model # of the cable and they still got the wrong cable.
Summary: Had a rough start, because of the super bright reds & pinks, when looking online, but figured it out. I already had a Spyderpro 4 calibration tool, before buying this monitor, and calibrated the monitor with it. Everything was looking good, except online.
Summary: Make sure you set up ideal viewing conditions. You don't want to sit in front of a $1000 monitor and have tungsten lighting in your room. Get a couple of dimmable table lamps, put neutral density bulbs in them and dim them very low (the spectraview will help you set this up).
Pros: Color reproduction is excllent (using color managed apps). For the first time ever, a photoshop photo looks the same on this monitor as when I printed on a color managed epson printer. I have a dual display with a reasonably expensive Dell next to it. Makes the Dell look so cheap. calibration is ...
Cons: Can get warm. Not energy efficient (but who cares for one monitor!). Some have mentioned casts over the monitor. It is very very slight and a function of viewing distance. the closer you are, the more the angle of view change between corners. That is why I go for a 24" monitor and not a 27.
Excerpt: This monitor is really nice, with accurate colors. Lots of adjustable options. Easy menu navigation. Not interested in how many USB or HDMI connections, or speakers. All I want is a 'visually accurate' monitor for editing photographs. No frills needed.Very well built. Feels durable and sturdy.
Pros: Accurate colors, Great Picture Quality, Sturdy
When used without the Spectraview profiling solution, this is a waste of money.

Summary: Out-of-the-box profile is suspect. This definitely needs some sort of calibrating device if you are spending the cash (please stay away from SpiderCo). I have since upgraded to the 27" and am looking at the 30" solution, refurbished, on EBay, which sells for 1.8 times what this device does for, new.
Excerpt: Nothing wrong with the Monitor but I ended up returning it because it simply wasn't worth the effort trying to use it on a small workspace while hooked up to my IMacMy IMac has a built-in monitor, but I really wanted a Monitor with a wider color gamut for working on images in LightroomIt just turned...
Excerpt: Bought this monitor to go with my new laptop with photo editing in mind. I'm impressed that the color is very close to calibrated monitor to begin with. The only thing is having trouble updating the software came with the unit, Multiprofiler.
Pros: Accurate Colors, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Summary: Reds will appear more saturated in non-color managed programs. You can setup Firefox to be color managed so that way you can view photos on websites as they are intended. Non-color managed programs (games) benefit from this by looking especially more awesome.
Pros: This is one of few true 10-bit IPS displays for this price level. Color clarity is excellent especially when calibrated with an NEC SpectraSensor Pro using SpectraView II software. The monitors input latency is NOT noticable when playing games at any setting, and this screen in fact makes games l...
Cons: There is minimal backlight bleed on the bottom right corner of my display, but is barely noticable during use. The reality is that this cannot be avoided with any IPS panel you buy. It's not LED. At least LED color accurate monitors haven't gotten cheap enough yet. You'll notice the antiglare coa...
