Not really a review of the Apple Monitor, but just to put another review in perspective:-
The review below, referring to Samsung LED technology, I'm afraid is completely misleading. Samsung LED TVs, such as the UE40B7020 are NOT "true LED" panels.
So i wonder where the reviewer is getting his information from.
Samsung's new LED models....(according to their website, and i quote):-
"employ(s) the "Edge LED" technology which is quite different from the local-dimming LED backlighting system we have previously seen ..."
"In "Edge LED" HDTVs, white LEDs are mounted along the edges of the screen to illuminate a cleverly arranged array of reflective plates which then steers the light forward and out of the screen."
SO NOT a "full LED screen"
Now I have no reason to assume that the Samsung models are not superb devices, I have a Samsung TV which i bought a couple of years ago, which has been great, BUT please don't review an item based on non-existent comparisons.*
My experience of the Apple screen in question , is that it is an excellent screen, fully capable of delivering the results that I need, mainly semi-pro photographic work, and some pro-sumer level video editing. I know there are better screens out there. They cost a lot more. There are cheaper screens out there, most of which, to my ageing eyes are not as good for my kind of usage. (Your mileage may vary!)
Certainly if you already have compatible Apple hardware, then this monitor is a "No-Brainer" as the young folks say.
* If there ARE any TRUE LED monitors out there, at a (semi) reasonable price, I would be more than glad to hear about them.
