1600p 30-incher for $1600, in 2014? Someone didn't send NEC a calendar.

Are all IPS screens 10bit? This one seems to be...
No, there are a wide range of IPS panels, featuring depths from 6-bit A-FRC, 8-bit native, 8-bit A-FRC and 10 bit native. This monitor is using a high-end panel, probably the same as Dell U3014 or a newer revision.

This looks to be one of those monitors aimed for graphics design given the 16:10 aspect ratio and IPS display technology. That would probably also explain the ridiculous price.

I really wish someone would make a 24" version of this. I'd throw money at a 24" 2560 x 1600 monitor.
