No one is fooling themselves here. We're all aware this isn't a value priced monitor or a best bang for the buck item. But as of Nov-Dec of 2010, this is one of the best out there for pure picture quality.

It's regrettable that Apple currently elects to have only one choice for monitor size, but it IS an excellent size for any professional who is looking to shell out a grand. For some reason, IPS panels (the panel technology behind this display) have maintained their higher prices in this resolution/size range. Usually Apple's products command a bit extra for what you get, but compared to the rest of the market, they're actually setting right with everyone else.

If you're a PC user and are looking for a comparable monitor to this one, consider Dell's UltraSharp U2711. It will have the connections you need without needing an adapter to get the mini display port working.

If you're looking for the budget version of this monitor, look up HP's ZR22w 21.5-inch S-IPS LCD Monitor. Not quite the size or resolution, but you could afford two of them side by side for less than one of these.

If you're a gamer on a budget, don't even consider this monitor. The 12ms rating on the Apple monitor won't cut it for the First Person Shooter aficionado. Try Samsung's P2450H.

But if you're a graphics professional and/or love the minimal design of this monitor (and I DO think looks count for something, as shallow as that sounds) and have a mini display port on your computer, this is an incredibly attractive option.

Depending on what you work on everyday, you may or may not like the aspect ratio of this display. It's 16:9 rather than the previous 16:10 other monitors had.

Having used PCs and Macs for the better part of two decades, I've seen it all. Let me just say this is by far the best display I've had the pleasure of using.

It's an IPS screen (versus TN, PVA or MVA) meaning you'll see incredibly good viewing angels and consistent color. PVA screens are great too (avoid TN and MVA) but IPS still has the edge.

It's a glossy screen, meaning there's no sparkly anti-glare coating blurring small fonts and other details. Colors pop, even the tiniest of details are easily visible. I love it.

It has a glass screen (gorilla glass?), so it's very easy to clean and very hard to scratch.

Speakers are among the best for built in speakers, which isn't saying much, but they're easily better than some larger TVs.

While I despise murky antiglare coated displays, there's no denying that glare is a problem under certain conditions.

Displayport is the ONLY input. I'm using the Atlona DP400 to run a GTX 580 through this display via DVI with zero problems at full resolution. But keep in mind this is an extra expense.

The stand's height and orientation cannot be adjusted. It's tilt only.

Bottom line:
You'll notice astounding detail with this display. Everything just pops off the screen. I haven't had this much pleasure with a display since the old Trinitron days of the 80's, guide wires and all.

Though disgruntled about the complaints others had made about this monitor (i.e. lack of HDMI, lack of vertical adjustment, glossiness, cost), I decided to take a risk. I took the plunge because I'd read that the monitor was best for the Macbook Pro.

Hooked up to my Macbook Pro, the monitor works like a dream. It essentially turns my laptop into a desktop (charging it in the process). The way the monitor stand sits, the Macbook can be slid halfway beneath the monitor, leaving space for a keyboard if necessary. Since I work in a relatively dim space, I haven't noticed the glossiness. My space is also annoyingly dusty, and I find the glass far easier to clean than my previous matte display.

In conclusion, this monitor might not work for everyone, but it works amazingly well for me. In the end, despite the way it first looked on paper, I'm very happy with the reality.

I got this monitor specifically to use with my Apple Mac Pro. I got this after returning the popular Dell U2711 IPS display which uses almost the same panel due to the grainy anti-glare coating. I was really bent on a matte display due to my need to use my Mac for photo and video editing. Once calibrated properly with my iOne Display, the display looks amazing. Colors are saturated yet still accurate with good shadow detail. Text is crisp which was an issue with the Dell. Glare will be a problem if you don't have the option of repositioning this without a window or light behind you. I have no glare issues as I have my monitor infront of the window so light shines on the back of it. I also have my shades drawn when I do serious photo or video work and only leave on a single desk lamp.

1) Bright display with vivid and saturated colors if you do a good hardware calibration of the screen
2) Nice aesthetics when combined with other Apple hardware (MacBook Pro, Mac Pro or Mac Mini)
3) Decent sounding built in speakers
4) No dead pixels or dreaded "yellow tinting" that plagued iMac still to date
5) Automatically turns on/off with your Mac (No power switch on back)
6) LED backlighting saves power vs CCFL lit LCD displays
7) LG made H-IPS panel has great viewing angles
8) 16:9 screen ratio excellent for movies

1) Glare issues unless you can control your work environment lighting
2) Limited connectivity (although you can buy a dongle to adapt for use with a PC)
3) Limited color gamut vs.
