    i got a 27 ACD on craigs for 480 9/10.....also have a dell u2713hm and its fantastic but only took about 3 returns to finally get a good one without panel defects and minimal light bleed , defects were yellow tinting and one side of the screen being brighter.. i tried the pb278q but the picture quality just didnt look right so i returned..maybe because its a samsung based panel.. i have a korean monitor shimian that i got for 300 on ebay hooked up to my gaming pc rig, the shimian is fantastic... i used to have a dual u2412m but there anti glare coat was ridiculous

    It is hard to give a decent recommendation without some information such as what you will use the monitor for and what your budget is about.

    High end graphics - NEC PA series or upper Eizo
    Moderate graphics and gaming (check specs first) - HP and Dell Ultra and Samsung.

    Everything else - just buy a generic don't care about it monitor.

    ACDs.....

    are very good options for Mac Pros. I have my doubts about an used one, but hey, you can give back the thing on 30 days and no cost in return shipping....Hard to argue with that deal....:D

    Don't forget to post some pictures!

    I wish Apple still made monitor with a matte anti-glare coating. I really prefer them, and a new 23/24" monitor at 1920x1080 or higher would really do well.

    Should be here sometime this week:D

    Hopefully everything is good. If it isn't ill send it back but if it is good I will keep my eye out for a second one. My favorite monitor of all time. Long time ago I had a 30in dell in my pc days and that thing lasted like 5 years then sold it .. still worked perfectly. But the apple one is beautiful:D
