NEC 30 inch LCD monitor with interesting specs...

...for those of you in NTSC land and with deep pockets! Specs in the engadget link.

And for those of you with pockets like mine (sans holes!) there's always this 24 inch Dell monitor.

Good grief! $2200!? May as well be using production LCD's for that price. The Gateway 30" seems to be a much more cost effective unit, I could see the NEC being the top end of the 30" displays for those that can afford it.

For video editing, I like Sharp's GP1:
http://www.sharpusa.com/products/Mod...8,1834,00.html

It's 1080p, dot for dot.

I'm using the 37-inch version.

There's also the newer GP3:

The deep red model looks really nice, but I'd get black for editing.

Disclaimer: I work for Sharp Labs of America. But I really do use the 37-inch GP1 for editing, and I really do like and recommend it. Just make sure to set the brightness as needed for video or computer use to get proper black levels, depending on your usage. The 37 is probably overkill for personal editing. The 32 would do the trick for most users.

This is a monitor for serious color grading.

Agreed. The Sharp GP1 & GP3 LCDs are good for editing and for seeing how the picture will look on a TV, rather than a computer monitor. But it is not built for advanced color grading.

Lets see....2560 across divided by the often used cinema aspect ratio of 2.35:1 is just about 1080 tall. So those really wide screen movies of BluRay would be dot for dot vertically and stretched just a bit horizontally.

That price is a bargain compared to medical grade monitors.

I wonder how it compares to the Dell 3008?
