    1. Refurbished



    2. 25ms pixel response



    3. Not widescreen.



    I do like NEC monitors though.

    The stands of both displays are similar to that of the original NeXT displays. That is, the foot extends beyond the display toward the user.



    I think such a stand really gives the display personality, while maintaining a professional look.

    And it doesn't appear to have 2 USB and 2 FW ports.

    Looks like the upright part of the stand is vertical, unlike the new Apple displays ( upright angles back towards the display ).



    That format is very common, foot at front of upright column, Viewsonic, Dell and Iyama all use it. Ironicaly, I think the first display to exhibit that design was the original Apple Studio Display 15", which looks pretty much identical to Dell's current range of stands ( of course it was bondi blue or graphite in those days ).



    I personally think that it is a very workable, flexible design for a stand, which offers vertical as well as horizontal adjustment.

    That Mitsu has a cheap plastic case as well.



    Would like to see if it has the same clean wiring that Apples does also.

    I finally watched the WWDC keynote today.

    My immediate thought - how do i hook that 30" into my Tivo?

    And pictured chucking cad corner, 2 displays, one TV, old CPU, the stereo/TV cabinet and ALL it's contents (except my Tivo) out the window.



    And doubling the usable space in my apartment.



    Ah, there I sit: bluetooth keyboard and mouse on my coffee table, plopped in front of my expensive new 30" 'TV', using Expose to go back and forth from TV to Mac. Should I get a barco-lounger?

    [good-natured sarcasm]

    You're absolutely right...except for the fact that the Apple screen has an aluminum case, a swooping curved foot, built-in Firewire and USB ports, a wide-screen aspect, a higher contrast ratio and a lower response time...except for those minor nitpicks, they're just about identical. After all, they both have smallish bezels and sit on a foot.

    Check out the side view of the new ACD...it really shows off the unique styling.
