They really are. The saturation is very good, and the color of the screens out of the box is much better than I expected.
My wife's old monitor, bought mid last year is a 22", and my daughter's, bought about 2 years ago, is a 19". The difference is startling.
As I write this, I'm installing the latest Canon software on my daughter's machine.
The one thing I'm not fond of is the screw used for the memory slot cover. I think it's a poor choice for a Phillips head. It's not a size most people will have.
It's not really a philips shape, it's actually a metal Apple core, with the stem removed. Steveareeno has the only known matching tool.
