I've been getting frustrated with MaxPC reviews of monitors lately, aside from my utter disappointment with my recent purchase of an Envision G2219w1. You guys find a lack of HDCP support important enough to knock it's score down, even though, as you mentioned, that's an easily remedied problem, but never bother testing or mentioning input lag, which is, in my opinion, more important to your readers, and a problem with most S-PVA type panels.

It should also be mentioned that the 24" model is also brighter (250 cd/m2 as opposed to 200), though not the 400 cd/m2 the XHD3000 can put out. 30" is too big for my taste, anyway, and its ultra-high resolution requires more of an investment for videocards than what most people are willing to shell out. Hopefully, in a year, LaCie's 700 series will lower into the sub-$1000 like the XHD3000 eventually did cause i definitely want one.

14 bit is the gold standard for Photoshop work. Go into any pro photographers or pro printers workplace and LaCie and Eizo are all you'll find.
