30" Display

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
I am thinking about getting a 30" display. My primary machine is a recent Macbook Pro - but I might get a macpro sometime later this year.

The Apple 30" display is $1799.

I found a similar 30" Samsung 305t for $1269 at newegg


Is it worth spending the extra $500 for the apple? The specs look similar.....

Thanks for any advice....

    Cinema display updates are long over-due. The Samsung is far superior (well if you need color accuracy if you're a photography professional, maybe not). I expect Apple to update the cinema displays soon but nobody is sure when they're going to do it. There's a good chance for a silent update as opposed to it being announced at an event. If you need a monitor now, I'd get the Samsung (unfortunately).
