    B&H has these for about $850 right now, and they come with a 4 yr warranty. I read everything you need to connect to the mini is included. Anyone have this? Can anyone compare to the TD? Thanks

    Bigest advantage over TD is the matt screen. At least you will be looking at your work, not your face!
    We have these at work and they are a great screen. Ideal for photography. Wide colour gamut with a good resolution.

    One of the best displays available. TB is no compare. Also with built in KVM switch, very usefull if you want to use it on desktop and notebook.

    Really? Much better than TD? What is the KVM switch?

    - wide gamut (sRGB and AdobeRGB precalibrated under deltaE =2)
    - ergonomic (tilt/pivot/height)
    - 30 bit color (unfortunately only with Windows and DP as OSX does not support it)
    - matte
    - better support for video-framerates
    - very uniform backlight
    - very good warranty
    - the KVM: you can attach keyboard, mouse tablet etc. to your display, and then have 2 USB cables go to 2 computers. The screen automatically links the USB devices to the active display source. No replugging needed.
    - no history of typical Apple monitor defects (mainly because Apple does not vent their screens well)
