    Right now I've got the 23" Cinema display. Great monitor but I have a yearning for a 30. I can pick one up used for about a grand shipped. I figure I can sell the 23 for around $500, so that's $500 out of pocket.

    Anyone moved up from 23 to 30 and want to share their experiences?

    Let's see.

    I've gone from (mostly Dells) 17" ->20" -> 24" -> 30" -> 30" flanked by 17"x2 -> 27" ->26". =)

    Although initially great,i found everything on a 30" to be a bit small (fonts, etc). i found i had to sit close to the screen which my eyes didnt appreciate. And no im not an old man!

    Yeah i know you can increase the fonts size and all that but still. I guess it depends on what you will be using it for. I find the 26-27" to be my sweet spot.

    But to each their own.
