Not 24" but 23" =)
Is it a good ideea?
Have this displays so many issues as new iMacs?
Why would you pay $1000 (incl. AppleCare) for a monitor with only one
input and none of the features of competitors costing hundreds less --
and lacking the high technology of truly professional monitors costing
$100-$200 more? Read up on what Dell, NEC, etc. have to offer.
NEC LCD2490WUXi has the most-featured, highest-quality for a semi-reasonable price in a 24" monitor... if you want all the bells and whistles and a top-shelf 24" IPS display panel.. pony up $1100 for this:
Only two hundred more than Apple's 23" Cinema Display, but far ahead in features and up-to-dateness. And get this, compared to Apple's 1 year warranty, NEC gives you 4 Years Parts and Labor including backlight!!! Hands down, this NEC is a MUCH smarter choice for only $200 more than the Apple 23" CD.
Exactly! There are also some very good prices on the "SV" (SpectraView)
version of that monitor (LCD2490WUXi-SV) -- I believe it's essentially the
same product bundled with a GretagMacbeth iOne Display V2 colorimeter
and calibration software (about $250 if purchased separately).
And here's just one example of the many high-tech features NEC offers:
"... panels and CCFL backlights contain uniformity errors, or mura,
which are visible as slightly brighter or darker areas on the screen.
To combat this inherent trait, each MultiSync 90 Series display is
individually characterized during production using a fully auto-
mated system that measures hundreds of points across the screen
at different gray levels. These measurements are used to build a
3-D correction matrix stored inside the display. This data is used
to compensate for the uniformity not only as a function of posi-
tion on the screen but of gray level as well. In turn, this technol-
ogy, called ColorCompTM, reduces the uniformity to virtually un-
noticeable levels and applies a digital correction to each pixel on
the screen to compensate for differences in color and luminance."
