Rather have 1 Eizo CG276. Or 2
Hah...well only graphics and design people really buy Eizos, let alone know what they are. To me, they're even a bit overkill for video editors because broadcast and film doesn't live in RGB land. A Blackmagic or AJA capture card running out to a calibrated broadcast monitor makes a lot more sense in those situations and you just don't need that level of accuracy at the GUI level.

To each their own, I guess.

I could go for 5x3... that Quake one is using 8x3. But I would only want to if/when LCDs become available without border flanges. I almost think a projector might be better tho - dunno, never tried to game on a decent projector. <shrug>

Yeah. If you are going to do it. Do it. Auto calibration and A-TW polarizers for VA like black depths should be looked at for film people as well. Super fast switching times to boot.

Perhaps add in a waveform deck.
