Hey, I have to admit, it looks cool. I especially like the thin black bezel, sort of an NEC trademark. The price tag reminds me of the good old days, circa 2000-2003, when the only options for PC widescreen, without going into the 3k range or above, was to purchase an Apple Cinema Display. At the time the acrylic, or what I like to call 'classic' cinema display was selling for around 2,500 dollars as well.
Have prices on this monitor come down since its release? I'd also be curious to find out what type of panel it uses.
