Anyway.. I hate the Foris series. It has to be programmable LUT hardware level calibration for me... yeah baby!
I'm gonna do some research on this.... or maybe not... I'll end up blowing another £2k on a screen again.

Why can't they release a 24" 1920x1200 version... I'd buy that in an instant!

By HARDWARE calibration, I don't mean calibrate it with a piece of hardware such as the colorimeter you linked to, but instead use it to programme the monitors programmable look up table instead of creating a ICM profile the GPU loads at start up.
The FORIS screens are consumer products for home entertainment purposes.

The none shiny ones have a grainy looking anti glare coating and I think it's fugly. The only downside of a shiny screen is reflections, but that's something I can deal with by closing my blinds or whatever.
But yeah I would need a far better review before I bought anything like this. One of the issues I read about the dell was input lag. I would like to know how this screen does with that.
Specialist sites serve a purpose, but we aim to cover a wider array of hardware. That means sometimes being a little less in-depth than some, but it doesn't invalidate the view point.
