    Less additional cash off -100 (until 24/12/09. was -70 until 17/12/09)

    Quite tempted but not sure if I should get it or is it not so good in some ways that's why so cheap?

    every panel needs to be calibrated, even the best panel in the world needs calibration, be it for viewing or for printing photos.

    The top of the range monitors have calibration devices built right into them so that saves the user some trouble but the user still must specify the white point, gamma and brightness.

    The U2410, altho it boasts a 110% aRGB gamut, it only does so at its native white point of around 6300k, which is ok for general viewing and editing work. When calibrated for printing at 5000k, and 90cdm brightness, the coverage is about 95%-ish of aRGB, with a reported delta E of 0.2-0.6, which is excellent.

    If you use the U2410 for printing work, you'll need a lighting source that matches your monitor color temperature and a good Color Reproduction Index to verify print quality.
    Good photo printers nowadays have much larger reproduction gamut than aRGB so the limiting factor will be the quality of the PAPER itself. Bad paper produces crappy looking prints, so do get the paper with the largest gamut range when you want your printout to match your monitor.

    most lab shops are at 5000k too. it's just the industry standard, much like 3/2 format, 4/3 format...
