Definitely not an apple or orange. It is a matter of opinion and to really talk to your opinion i would have to know your reasoning. If it is purely pixel real estate i would say there are superior triple monitor solutions for a 3rd of the cost. If it is PPI i would say there is WAY better Laptop panels that can be retrofitted. If you do not like 120hz and prefer 60hz i would say some people still like records instead of CDs . If you simply like the most expensive monitor then i will say this is a common misconception that the most expensive is the best. There is NO apple and orange comparison here they are both monitors with the same variables. I was merely speaking towards the value of the purchase and currently this new monitor is low on the value chain. Another factor is the overall size, My 27" is definitely on the BIG end for me and really i think 23-24" is the sweet spot. I deal with 27" due to the overall quality of the monitor VS 24" alternatives. This new guy has crossed a size line for me as 32" is just to big of a PC display for me. Same thing with recent cell phones 5" is ridiculous but i will deal with 4.5".
Bottom line is yes there is opinions here but we are all talking about monitors and there is NO apples and oranges complex.
