Hi, First, I'd like to say that I know the screen was released in 2004 and last updated some time in 2007 or so, and it lacks lots of connections yadda yadda.. but you still see a lot of people going for these monitors (for their Mac Pros), so what I would like to know is: From a 2010 viewpoint, how does the monitor compare to other 30" monitors in terms of what it is: a monitor (not a TV - I don't care for HDMI or other connections.. all I need is DVI for the Mac Pro). - Image quality vs. other 30" displays - Brightness? - Quality of materials / hardware (problems?) - Usability for graphics and photo and video editing (I'm a graphic design student) Considering with the student discount I could get the 30" ACD for 995 GBP, it would probably work out cheaper than HP's or Dell's 30" offerings. Any help / comments appreciated see you, chris.
