    Sounds fab, but I cant help but think its more an aquired taste, purely on its size.
    Its actually too big for usage as a monitor.
    Iv got the 24", and have been using 19" / 20" TFTs for a few years now. But even I find that this thing is huge and you have to sit a fair way from it, or suffer eye strain (partly because the brightness and contrast are so damn good).
    Its loks very nice though, and the specs are almost too good (esp the response time).

    They already have a 24" model called the 2405 FPW, and they'll be releasing a 2407 WFP IIRC.

    You'd need the Gigabyte 4xPCI-Express board in that case ;) Saw this a while back on engadget which quoted the response time as 14ms...either way it'll undercut the Apple in price and includes a 9-type memory card reader and usb ports on the side.

    I have to agree, if I was ever able to afford one I'd want a really deep desk so I could sit far enough away without going blind.

    Damn this thing is sweet, I could never deal with all that screen space on a desktop, HTPC maybe. 21" max for me on desktop screen, im getting one of those next year.

    I'd imagine it's hdcp-compliant. Anyways, I wouldn't mind one, but I'd need to upgrade my graphics setup... no dual link DVI right now. I'll definately wonder how it compares pricewise to the Apple 30" monster, but just for the feature difference (multiple inputs, for one) it'd be worth paying a bit more, and it's likely to be less.

    Almost too big though.

    £1400, plus that new 14% EU tax, this ain't gonna be cheap.

    Any chance of another news competition to win this (or 3) bigz? :D

    From what I have heard it will be HDCP compliant.
