It's worth it. Probably one of the best monitors I've ever seen. The height-adjustability and 90 degree tilt is smooth, and the construction probably rivals Apple's Cinema Display. It's High-Definition ready and uses the DCD-i Processor by Faroudja (reowned for their work on such processors). It has VGA, DVI, S-Video, Composite and HD Composite. It has two USB ports on the side and two on the back by the input plugs. Even though it's $600+ USD, it's probably the best monitor in it's size class.
