And so I've decided...

| |

...Not to buy any monitor that's not HDCP compliant.

That includes the current Apple monitors. If you buy one today and connect it to your new Mac Pro, you won't be able to display HD content from a Blu-Ray player Apple may release next year, and don't expect Apple to help you when you complain. This goes the same with PC's that aren't really compatible unless you find homebrewed WinACD drivers floating around the net somewhere.

I would suggest that everyone boycott Apple displays until they add HDCP!

I really don't understand why Apple ever released the newer line of displays without HDCP. It was really stupid.

PS: I also hear Apple doesn't really attempt to repair any buggy monitors, they just replace them. Therefore, you're better off buying Apple Care to extend your crappy 1 year warranty, or else you'll get charged with a full priced monitor when you send it into repair.
