    Looking for feedback on the new 23" Aluminum Cinema Display.

    Who has one?
    Are you having any problems with backlighting or pink tint?

    I have a 23" and haven't had any problems with it. I have seen some pink ones in the store, but mine has been fine. Even if you got one and it was pink, just calibrate it and you should be fine.

    I've had mine for a few weeks now and it's wonderful. All the apple stores in my area had ones with the pink cast so I was a little nervous but it looks amazing.

    My 23" has the pink tint and I have heard a few people say theirs doesn't, but every one I have seen in person (in 3 different stores) has the tint.

    No pink on the 23" I've been using for two months now.

    Some residual ghosting with high contrast images that don't move, and a 2 inch band of slight discolouration down the left side. I do design and colour matters but for proofing I deal with a broadcast monitor for video or the printery for paper based.

    I bought Applecare with my G5 and screen. Figure I'll test for six months and then return it if the problem becomes an obstacle to work.

    Thanks for the feedback

    The negative post on the new 23" on the Apple forum have slowed down and seem to be populated by a few who have uneven backlighting with yellow shading on the left.

    I'll tell you how awesome it is....

    I nealry lost a testicle when my wife saw the debit... but once she got to use the monitor a bit.... she was thrilled and acknowledge how much better it is then her 17 inch dell at work and praised me for making such a wise investment....

    now if that does not demonstrate the quality of apple.... you should just go buy a dell!

    If your screen is pink, why don't you just calibrate it?

    If she was upset about the monitor, how does your wife feel about the G5 purchase?

    10.3.6 improves ColorSync calibrating

    From the Apple.com Forums:

    "OS X 10.3.6 says the following as one of it's improvements:
    Improves ColorSync calibrating for Apple Cinema HD Display (23-inch DVI) displays."

    A few reports in those forums say that indeed 10.3.6 did fix the pink tint problem for them.
