    As a film student, I'm purchasing a Dual G5 Power Mac with Final Cut Pro HD suite for my projects.
    However, I can't drop the change on an Apple Cinema Display after spending as much as I did on the Power Mac itself.

    I found the following display, and wondered if anyone had comments on it:

    I'm also open to any other recommendations. I started searching for a set-top HDTV with a PC input, but can't find any that include a PC input.

    Thanks in advance.

    just make sure you look at the native resolution for the lcd. when i hook mine up to my comp it sets its self to 1020 x780 (ish i cant remeber) with that machine you want to make sure that the display can go higher than that. thats why the apple displays are so expensive, becuase there resolution is crazy high and amazing. my guess is that you will probaly be a little disapointed with taht display but if it fits the budget and costco has a great return policy then try it out!
