Okay, I'll try and cut a long story short. My 30" ACD is ghosting horribly - anything on screen will remain there at 90% opacity for 4-5mins, and it does this no matter how long the item is there (ie: it is not the image persistence problem). Tried every fix, nada. Even worse, the screen is 3 months out of warranty, and AppleCare are refusing to do anything about, even when having the Consumer Goods Act thrown at them. Apparently they won't say that a screen has an expected life span of over three years, which is ridiculous for a £1300 monitor. Out of curiosity, what is the ballpark repair cost on the 30" ACDs?
