I ended up purchasing the HP ZR24w from amazon with overnight shipping...
For those wondering I did consider the dell u2410, but then I realized it would sit in srbg mode it's entire life
For those actually looking at purchasing the asus, I don't see any reviews yet from either amazon or newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6824236119
I haven't mentioned it here yet, but I did also purchase a ZR30W for 'personal use'. I've been drooling over 30" panels for years, and the resolution is simply awesome (what I bought it for). Quick impressions of it, as compared to a 28" Hanns-G:
-Colors are awesome. Yes, I know, they're supposed to be, but still; this is my first personal non-TN.
-Input lag isn't noticeable, using Counter-Strike: Source as a test. This is a concern for the competing Dell U3011
-Out of the box, colors and brightness were very well set, and would be great for just about anyone not needing a calibrator
-Stand is wonderful- sturdy and easily adjustable, which is good for a monitor of this size
-Ghosting is noticeable next to the Hanns-G. My test was to drag a window back and forth across desktops relatively quickly. Where the 3ms 28" panel remained sharp, the 8ms 30" panel was a little blurry. I have not noticed and ghosting in games yet, and I'll take the extra contrast and awesome color and resolution any day!
I'll have to move things around to compare the U2311; I also have an ancient Samsung 204B 20" TN that I can also calibrate and throw in the loop as well.
On the Spyder3Pro; I'm not sure if I like the thing yet, as it seems to think that low ambient light means screens should run at low brightness levels, and on all three monitors I've calibrated, it has had me bury brightness (never touching contrast).
