Nice try, but the NEC comes with a warranty of 4 years. And because I save about $3,000 buying the NEC, in less than 4 years I could afford to buy another monitor with the savings I have gained NOT buying the Eizo. Now, THIS is peace of mind! There's just no way around it. I've thought about this alot, and I can't justify buying the Eizo at their outrageous prices.
Just a thought...
Have you consider purchasing a Sony Artisan instead? It is far better than these two displays, and cheaper. Please checkout my two (2) ebay auctions, one of them is for a Brand New Sony Artisan, eBay auction # 270314160346.
