    I would like to get an ACD in the near future. Either a 23 or 30 inch display. Just curious if getting the refurbished display from Apple will be as great as an experience as when I bought my referbed MBP?

    I know I could by a Dell or some other brand display cheaper, but the ACDs are so sexy looking. I wouldn't mind paying the extra for that, but I would still like to get the best deal on one.

    Any advice or expericences greatly appreciated. :)

    I'd go with a Dell. The ACD hasn't been updated in a long time and the Dell Monitors are as good if not better than the Apple Display.

    I have a 2408 and it's fantastic and about $200 Cheaper than the ACD.

    Personally the ACD's lack of adjustability and features turn me off them, Ive used Samsung's & Dell's, I will be replacing 2 x 24" dells With a 30" Samsung soon, i find the colour much better than the ACD after calibration, but thats my personal opinion, My advice, save some money where you can ;)
