    Hi. I know there's another thread that has the same topic with mine. However, everything was discussed in a price matter. So I wonder: If these two monitors were priced the same, which one would you go for, and why?

    Thanks guys>!

    Get the LED Cinema display, once you have it inside your room you will just say wow to the colors and sharpness of that screen!

    I got a 2709w about a year ago, and I'm very happy with it. The only reason I chose it over the ACD is because of the size and the sheer amount of ports it offers. If the ACD had an HDMI port, I probably would have gone with that, but I need it for pretty much everything I use. It really depends on what you are going to use the display for. The ACD uses an IPS screen, where the 2709w uses a PVA screen...so the ACD will have a bit better color reproduction, but the 2709w has better contrast levels for movies and such. Hope that helps you out.

    PS. Dell did announce a U2711 (upgraded IPS panel instead of PVA) a little bit ago, so if you're not in a hurry and want the physical size, I'd wait for that. Has the same pixel count as the 27in iMac, but for the same price-ish as the ACD. Check it out.
