Just wondering what percentage of users use an Apple display with their Mac Pros or Power Macs

I use a Dell 3007WFP-HC. My decision to go with this instead of Apple's 30" was due primarily on cost. However, had Apple had a 30" similar to that used on the new 27" iMac, it may have been a different story.

my friend from Apple offered me 30 for some silly price, i paid it less
than 24 LED to be exact. Gotta love friends from Apple. :)

I've owned high-end NEC displays (since their famous Multi-sync days), Dell (including the 30" HC from 2007 - equivalent to the Apple 30" I believe), and now an Apple 24" LED ACD and honestly, the Apple LED display is the most amazing display I've ever laid eyes on. I can't stand the matt overlay used on the current 30" displays... it looks like someone stretched panty-hose material over the screen! UGH!

Seems like Apple is making a killing on 30" ACDs today! I'm the third person in this thread who got one today! :) Got mine with an edu discount ($1599) and got free Apple Care ('cause I bought a laptop recently and the display will be covered under by the computer's Apple Care).

Can't say that I'm happy, not yet. It's still sitting in the box (got to do some house chorses before I get to play with it) :(

I'd recommend you double check that!

About two years ago I bought a MBP and two weeks later a 30". I too tried to apply the ACD to the MBPs Apple Care.
Some calls with different Apple employees told me that that would only be possible if both products have been bought on the exact same day.

Currently a pair of 23" ACDs, and I had a 30" ACD up until last weekend when I sold it and the Mac Pro - waiting for my 27" iMac as a replacement machine.

I also use Apple Cinema Display 23" - got it about 1,5 year ago for 1/3 of price, because it has a broken USB hub connector and DVI connector without plastic shield :D

Doublesight DS-263N 26" H-IPS and Nec 2090wuxi 20" S-IPS displays. If I'd had the scratch and inclination, I would have opted for newer NECs.

I find it quite heartening that one can now buy a variety of IPS displays rather affordably (though LG Philips's recent uniformity issues are troubling).

I'm kind of hoping the new panels seen in the 21.5" and 27" iMacs will be sold as standalone displays at more affordable prices, given how well-priced the iMacs are.

I'm also comfortable with Mini Displayport now. It's here to stay, people. And it carries advantages (such as breaking the two monitor limit for a graphics card) that we won't see with current hardware but future hardware will require.
