    Unless the glossy screen is an issue for you, the monitor should be great for your needs. It has nice viewing angles because of the S-IPS panel.

    s-ips panels are basically the best lcd panel available. They are perfect for graphic design as they offer the best colour reproduction. Go for it if you can afford it.

    You'll love it. I attend SCAD for graphic design and always used the schools Mac labs with their ACD. However, now that I have an Acer cause I can't afford a ACD I can work in my dorm.

    I'm not a professional anyways.

    brilliant.. and how do you find the cinema displays? are you using the gloss 24" ones or the older "matte" versions?

    thanks

    Uh, if you read my post I said I have an Acer. LOL, ACD for me is a dream, I dont have a spare $599.

    The school uses the older 20" I think to save space cause they have a LOT of Mac Pros. I think they're matte, cause with the lights above us I dont see the reflections.

    Dell monitors offer the best value for money, and are good quality with lots of connections. The apple monitors are good, albeit being over priced and not offering the connections the Dell can
