I have an iMac late 2009, and I have to say the quality of it is perfect. I look up into a blue/black sky in a video game and I see no banding, none of any kind of DSE and/or ghosting or clouding. However I have not had a single television, ranging from 24" to 40" without ANY kind of banding or clouding. As a matter of fact, I have returned multiple screens due to this problem, and this problem has bothered me immensely because I am fairly OCD and demand perfection (which is a flaw, especially when it comes to technology) Are Apple Cinema Displays better just put together? Do they receive better quality control? I don't wanna fanboy up the Apple Displays, but I am curious because this is the only display I have ever had without any kind of defect and its lasted 5+ years.
