It implements the FRC (Frame Rate Control) in the full colour mode. Which not everyone uses. Otherwise it is an excellent monitor. Especially in Europe where NECs' 2490/2690 are relatively much more expensive compared to the USA market.

Hmm, I thought the dithering problem was solved with a firmware update.

It is worth noting that HP is running a good instant rebate on the monitor in the US. You can get the monitor for under $2000 (brand new) or under $1300 (refurbished). The offer is good until July 31st. However, you also have to include the price of HP Advanced Profiling Solution ($350). There is the hood which may set you back a couple of Benjamins or a bit less.

I may consider buying one. Does anyone have any experience buying refurbished monitors? Good/bad?
