The spec is pretty horrid by today's standards. With only 600:1 contrast, images are likely to be flat and lifeless with subdued colours and no real blacks. If it's very cheap and all you can afford, go ahead, but brace yourself for a not terribly good screen. It's likely to be based on an outdated Korean made panel.

Read again £2k for that? They must be kidding! Try relysis, can be had for less and makes some attempt to be decent.
