Actually a good value.
Though this display is officially discontinued, it still is a great value for it's resolution. Look up prices of other 2560x1440 displays and you'll see they are right around this price point, and exceed it in a few cases. I've seen the displays made by Dell, NEC, Samsung, and in subjective quality, the Apple Display beats them. Of course, none of this matters much to an audio engineering professional, but to video and photo guys, the blacks are richer, the shadows show more details, and the colors are as close to spot-on as I have ever seen in a stock monitor that hasn't been calibrated. For DAW work, I don't like dual displays, one big display seems to work much better for my workflow, where in Logic Pro I have ample room to use the unified arrange window with mixer, MIDI parameters, and Library tools all showing. It's just FUN to sit down in front of this thing and get to work. BUY IT!
