This monitor is perfect for architectural applications. I primarily use CAD programs and some illustration/photo/video applications as well. This monitor is significantly brighter and sharper than my 20" and 22" UltraSharp's from Dell. The colors on this display are deep and lifelike. It set up easily, but first I decided to upgrade my video card ($65) to get the maximum resolution. This monitor takes about 10-20 minutes to warm up in the morning, before reaching it's full brightness and color palette. After 5-8 hours of use, the monitor puts off a good bit of heat, and I suspect that it will help maintain my suntan through the winter months. For me, the greatest attribute of working on a screen this large is that it is extremely comfortable. I can work longer without eye strain or physical fatigue. I've eliminated hundreds of clicks and pans from my daily routine due to the massive field of view.
