I finally went and bought it after weeks of shuffling through articles to try and find the perfect desktop LCD.
I have posted unboxing pictures on my Flickr page:
My first reaction was "damn better not drop it!" followed by "shit this is a tad too big for my desk"!
The screen is so grand is deserves a matching setup to go with it, my PC is OK Spec wise (Core 2 Duo, 1GB ram, Nvidia 7600 GS, etc) but I need a decent table to go with it.
I did order the Dell Soundbar to go underneath the monitor's frame to accommodate speakers - that has arrived a few days after and I will post photos of when I have it hooked up.
