I'd like to see you guys compare this to the newly crowned "best monitor"-- that puny 23" HP monitor :D

pfft, puny resolution... the best monitor is my 30" Apple Cinema display with 2560x1600 resolution, 16ms response time, and unmatched color accuracy among consumer LCDs... At 3300$ it's also quite affordable for what you get.

And no, you don't *need* a mac to use it ;)

apple makes some of the sweetest displays. i like their older lcd's that were plastic and had the fold out supports in the back, i used one for a month this summer and coming back to my 19"CRT was painfull.

Yeah, I realized it actually not that great... and some reviewers actually full-out hated it.

I only have one Quadro FX3000, and anyone who actually hates this display needs professional help, it's the benchmark period, not only does the display area look better then any other consumer LCD… the frame, the whole package is built like a tank, it's extremely solid, yet very sleek and stylish, unlike that 23" HP... What kind of calibrator did those reviewers use? If they didn't use one at all, then their opinion does not even matter...

Oh yeah, and no other LCD monitor allows me to work with 11mp photos at 50% magnification in photoshop, with tons of space around it for toolbars and palettes...

That screen friggin rules, and anyone who says different has a serious bias against Apple.

No doubt that monitor is awesome...

My concern was with the disclaimer on Apple's website with the requirements... probably just need a REALLY good video card, that's all.

my dad got a new powermac in his office at work. It is sweet with the new mac os. It also has a widescreen flat panel display which gives me warm fuzzies.

Are you sure those warm fuzzies aren't the burning kitten wanting attention?

Dual link DVI doesn't mean two vid cards or the number of cables or whatever, it has to do with the amount of pixels the card can pump. As Maxx posted there are workstation cards that can run it as well as the card Apple offers. I agree that any reviewer that hated the 30" Apple either had a bad unit or was just being difficult. It's a killer monitor by any standards.
