but it's only 24"... if you're not into graphics (professionally), the number of colors don't come close when selecting a monitor as much as its size - games especially.

"Only" 24"? I think that's plenty big. I'd also argue that better colors = better gaming experience. When I got my first LCD and started playing HL2, I was let down by the lack of true black.

That thing is friggin sexy. Too bad they cost as much as a small child in some countries. Still, it'll trickle down.

I mean, NO UR MONITOR SUX

You kidding? I'm never going below 30" ever since I got my monitor... And the colours are vivid and sharp just like you would expect from a Samsung. For the life of me, I always had big screens... when LCD was uberly expensive, I had Sony Trinitron 22" CRT (that seemed huge at 2048x1536)... and now... after 2560x1500 well... aiming for 60" UHDV screen (which is in hands-reach) :cool:

I got that in for review but sent it back, thought about eBaying it, but the PR guy was quite forthcoming about wanting it back 8) (that's a joke of course).

Not at all worth the money, unless you are a professional graphic designer with a nearly unlimited budget. Most other graphic designers will probably want to save money and will end up buying a LaCie or an Apple Cinema display. Of course they offer no where near the amount of colors, but are easily at least $2000 cheaper. Of course graphic designers will want a really high resolution as well, and I did not see where they mentioned the resolution on this HP. Also I do not think too many of the Macintosh-leaning graphic designers will want an HP branded display hooked up to their PowerMac G5/Mac Pro.

Why did they put it in such a clunky frame?

With LED backlighting, they should be able to get the frame border width to nearly zero. Then, I can mount them to cover almost the entire interior of a sphere and have surround immersion video.

I hereby create and add two new words to the multi-media lexicon: surrmersion and surrmersive.

IF you need that level of color matching, keep your old professional series trinitron 22" tube monitor....I did.
