I am gearing up to buy a few new desktops and have had the 30" on my list for over a year. I figured they would have updated it by now and fear the update will only change it to the dreaded glossy screen! If it follows the same path as the 24" it will also have useless speakers and a camera... don't think any of this belongs on a professional monitor. Anyway the biggest concern is holding off only to find I missed the boat on the last matte screen display from Apple... probably paying even more to boot. I have a graphics/photography business doing lots of color correction and layouts for print and the the web and so far for 3 years the 23" display I have has been fine, I think the 30" is the same just more of it. I periodically adjust it with an old spectrometer and it works even thought there are no real controls. I did see one issue with my current 23", there is an obvious burn in at the top where the shadow of the OS top bar is, it's there all the time now plus on certain grey tone backgrounds you can even see what looks like burned in black text in the middle of the screen... very faint but there. I have a screen saver come on after a while so I am surprised this has happened and wonder if it would happen on the 30" as well, any insight on this would be welcome too. I saw lots of reviews and they all tend to be the same... Can't have a Dell near my mac and spending even more on a NEC is not practical sounding... I think it's the right choice, just is it the right time to buy or almost too late?
