I've been looking for an LCD panel to go with a new PowerMac. I had been looking at panels from NEC and Viewsonic, but one point made me come back to an Apple Store to look at the 17-inch Studio Display: support. I had a router fail several days ago, and discovered how much I did not matter to the manufacturer. In order to obtain a replacement router, I was informed that it will take at least two to three weeks before I will receive the replacement under warranty. This was after I got the runaround from the support person on the telephone. I've had problems with Apple hardware before, and I have been very impressed by the speed with which the Apple Geniuses replace faulty parts. I had to send my PowerBook away to Apple because its ATI graphics chip failed, and I had it back in working order within three days. With the latest price drop, the Apple Studio Display seems like a great choice. Only one thing disappointed me: at 1280 x 1024 resolution, the panel looked sharp, but I noticed that the display turned fuzzy under every other resolution. Has anyone else noticed this? Also, what does it take to get the Apple panel to work with other graphics cards with DVI connectors? I'm not particularly happy about the lack of hardware-based controls for brightness, contrast, and other normal options. Should I stop worrying and get it, or are there other companies offering a better monitor with a level of support that is comparable to Apple?
