After comparing PA242W to his predecessor I'm quite sure it's worth to wait for PA302W. New GBr series have better uniformity. Satin diffuser that I much prefer over matte diffuser in PAxx1 series (the image is cleaner, without sparkling/clouding effect. The brightness range is better - PA242W goes down to 40cm/m^2, while his predecessor only achieved 90cd/m^2, so new 27 and 30" should be more convenient to work in a dark room. It also has slightly larger gamut, and lower power consumption.
