    Hi All

    Right now I have a ACD 27", Im happy for it, but sometimes the reflections makes me sick ( from the lights In my livingroom ) Im working with graphic design and photography.

    I been thinking about to get a ACD 30" I know Its old, but people seems to be happy with that monitor.

    Does anybody have experince with both monitors? And Is the ACD 30" much worse in terms of quality and colors?

    I have seen them right next to each other. The 30 isn't nearly as bright or clear compared to the acd.

    I would move forward not backwards. If the current iMac removes the glare for you then wait for the new TBD to be release and upgrade your system up.

    You also may consider the dell monitors. They use the same panel as the apple, but have a anti reflective coating.
