The tech paper is worth a read but I don't think it really addresses the
first issue discussed below. As regards pulling back the monitor's gamut to
the print gamut, with inkjet the issue is the other way around - we still
don't have a monitor gamut broad enough to encompass the gamut of a dgo
Lastly, I really wish display manufacturers would learn some form-factor
design sense from the likes of Apple. The Brightside device is downright
ugly and the NEC 2180WG only marginally better.
