    That would be the DVI model. Does it still justify all the glowing reviews written on it in 2005? (the all said that is was stunning but the price was way too much - now that it is available for around $200 US, how does it hold up?)
    If you have used it, chime in!

    I love mine. Bought it used last year from some guy who had it from the Power Mac G5 days so probably the original 2005 model and absolutely no issues what so ever. Little cramped in this day and age especially being around much larger displays at work and such but it's all good. Looks gorgeous with everything I throw at it. I'd easily pay $200 if this one broke down (knock on wood). Actually, $200 is an absolute steal. I still see Cinema displays using the crusty ADC in my area go for 300+.

    the display panel is superb, but the brightness, contrast and inputs/output are a bit lacking in terms of today's displays.

    if you can get it new at cheaper than original retail then it will be very good deal.

    That's good new. I got mine for $245, and it should come in tomorrow.
    I'll post a small review when it does.
