It's a very nice monitor - I use it between two 2001 (1600x1200) monitors turned portrait. I'm not a fan of the touch-sensor for changing settings, but I almost never have to fool with those.
I won't lie that a 4k monitor would be nice, but I don't really see a good 100%+ A/sRGB version coming out for under a grand any time real soon.

its a boat anchor next to my $300 LG 32 inch LCD TV running at 1900x1080. perhaps i am just a humble man but its served me quite well.
Your LG is similar to what I use as a monitor (Vizio 32")
To those that are contemplating this deal, the screen will be very sharp and very crisp, but:
1) Text will be seriously tiny at default resolution if used as monitor.
2) If you're into computer gaming, the difference between driving a 1080P display and one running at this resolution is going to -require- serious graphics hardware (SLI or Crossfire) to get decent frame rates in many current 3D games.

that is a silly comparison. That Sony is meant for professional video production, it is not a prosumer monitor like the Dell. We regularly pay $10K for 1080p pro monitors at my work. The clue is the HDSDI input. consumer/prosumer monitors do not use baseband.

I have been using a zr30w for a couple of years now and I can't use any other monitors now cause they are too tiny and don't have enough workspace. nothing beats having two documents side by side. great for coding. and for those who say the text is to small, you do realize you can change the size. and for gaming I use an overclocked 670ftw. I can't turn the AA up like on did on 1080p but at that pixel density 2x is fine.

Yup, having multiple documents open at once is *VERY* nice. I do it with three 19" monitors. I'd love to replace them with three of these in portrait mode but I'm certainly not shelling out the $3k it would take.
