I would actually say with what you are doing, you need one of those monitors more than people mostly using it for gaming.
Increased color quality is dramatic, and will be a great aid for photo AND video editing work. The increased clarity of 1440 will definitely give you a better sense of detail work.
Make sure you are spending smart tho. Don't worry about any OC or overclocked monitors. They cost almost twice as much, and it's not a feature you need.
That is what you are looking for. Available domestically (in the US) with the Korean part cost, and with a good warranty and decent shipping time.
It says out of stock, but I think they are shipping them weekly now, as it used to be listed as "backorder" and unavailable for order.
Any other questions and I'll see what I can help ya with.
For a price comparable to some of the higher end TN panels at the same size and 1080 resolution, it really is a good solution for you.Edited by Zyrael - 12/10/12 at 7:55pm
