We all have variuos reasons for upgrading our displays. While doing some research on 30" displays I came across the following reason on a manufacturer's website. It happens to be the best reason I have ever heard to spend $1,500 on a monitor.
"I use my computer mainly to play large board games via email which requires a program called Vassal to display the board. With this monitor's large screen size I am able to view more of the game board with vivid colors and high resolution. I absolutely love this monitor."
