I posted something about the 30-inch 2560*1600 LCD monitor some weeks ago. In South Korea, such monitors are very popular right now among us hardware enthusiasts. LG.Philips LCD, same panel used in Apple's 30 inch. Small brand name 30-inch of the same panel sells some models for under US$1,500 in South Korea. I've been considering, but haven't decided because I except the retail price to drop to under US$1,000 anytime inside this year. In China, they say 47-inch LCD TV (of much lower resolution though) costs about US$1,200. Prices are falling rapidly because LG.Philips, Samsung, Sharp, and the others, especially the BIG 3, are starting productions in their newest 7G and 8G lines. For the mass consumers, 30 inch of 2560*1600 resolution is yet too early. 20 inch of 1600*1200 is a lot more appropriate because such a monitor now costs only US$300 or so. 2 of them = US$600 and 3200*1200. 4 of them = US$1,200 and 3200*2400.
