So.. I've looked around abit, and searched this site - but it's hard to find a definite answer to the quality of this display for photographic work. I found a thread, with the majority of people dismissing it - but this was just after it was announced - and before anyone tried it out, so I wont hold those remarks to much value really.
The thing is, I am currently using a midrange HP monitor, which calibrates well (Spider3) but has some serious limitations, like obvious brightness and color shifts depending on viewing angle etc. and I reeeeeally need something better, where I don't have to sit perfectly still for 6 hours to get work I can count on. Funds, however, does not agree with me on upgrading just now.
As it happens, I have been offered the Apple Cinema LED 24" at a really favorable price (less than 50% of retail) - so question is, is it "good enough for pro-work". I have no doubt it will be better than my current setup. The glossy screen I can get used to; provided I can calibrate the screen properly with my spyder3.
But, will I get unhappy with it and look into replacing it next summer when funds permits - or will I be able to perform my work on it until it dies or needs "Natural replacement"?
Oh, and BTW: I got a good deal on a Philips 26PFL5604H as well, even cheaper.. Is that even worth considering ? I would guess not as it's not really a dedicated display meant for anything but viewing TV on
