I just took posession of a pa271w, and while I love the ease of calibration, color fidelty, etc -- I'm a bit put off by the anti-glare coating "speckle" effect on white and light grey backgrounds. Is this simply something one accepts in exchange for this display's considerable merits? Anyone else here with the same monitor share my concerns, or am I simply being too sensitive?
IMHO NEC has the most gentle "speckle" effect among other anti-glare coated LCDs. Some people hate that effect (especially after switch from CRT), some don't even notice it. Try to get used to it - the only other option is to get glossy surface display like ACD 27".
