The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from:

High End Consumer Moniter

Awesome moniter with good looks and excellent performance. Controls are intuitive and simple. However most people will do very little adjusting on the controls.

Out the box you get an awesome display with excellent performance. But, remember you have a high end Consumer Moniter that requires an equally high end Video Card to push this puppy. No $100.00 or 200.00 Video Card here. Other than that if you have the $ to buy go ahead you won't be disappointed. I know I am not.

Great colors and performance ( far)

Colors are really great. I love that that color temp can be adjusted by the increments of 500 degrees from 4-10,000. Also, the wide array of gamma values are a nice option.

I'm using the monitor with a PC on the DVI and a Mac on the DisplayPort inputs. They both work well. I like that the monitor supports HDMI 1.4 - which is up to 4K res. Unfortunately, my late 2012 Mac mini only supports 1080p via USB, so I have to go with the DisplayPort route. (Makes you wonder sometimes how can technology be so out of touch from one manufacturer to the next.) Honestly, I'm not sure this monitor has "great features" other than the great colors. Sure, that is the most important feature in a monitor and I'm glad it has it. However, for this price, there could've been more features, and better design, such as 6 color adjustment, AdobeRGB, PIP option, ability to rotate the monitor both portrait and landscape. Here's what I don't like about it. The obvious design flaw about the DisplayPort connector. You need a screwdriver to remove the plug once it is inserted. What is up with THAT!? Also, the touch controls location is not something I favor. My monitor is positioned at the lowest height (eg pushed all the way down). In this position, the touch controls are barely accessible. As I pointed out, I have 2 computers hooked up to it, and (not too frequently but) I have to switch between them on a regular basis. If I have the monitor positioned all the way down, reaching the touch controls are very inconvenient because the monitor almost completely covers them. I wish the buttons/controls would've been either embedded in the front or side of the monitor instead. The base is round, so for whatever reason (at least for me) it would imply that you can rotate/swivel the base. You can't. That would've been a great addition/feature. USB 2.0? It's 2013. What happened to the 3.0 ports? Not really fan of the glossy displays but I work mostly in a darker environment, so I can survive. All in all, the monitor provides great colors, but with a few obvious design flaw. For this price I wish there would've been more intuitive features and better design! I hope this monitor will last for a couple of years at the minimum...

I honestly wouldn't purchase for myself. But as Director of my organization, I can't find a sleeker, more functional monitor. Brilliant design features and flawless footprint for such a big monitor.

My company bought a couple of these for our media department. Everyone loves these monitors and when we have visitors in the office, we show them ourpresentations on them in our small conference rooms.

Really a super display!
