I can't comment on the color-correctness of it .. but I recently bought a "refurbished" (by Apple) 20" Cinema Display, and *love* it. They go for $499 (free shipping) .. and come up from time to time on the Apple website. I needed to get a new display adapter that supported DVI (Radeon 9500 I believe, but am OOTO right now), but once all the pieces were in place it all "just worked". I did some reading up on this and read about some horror stories of people trying to connect an Apple Cinema Display to a Windows PC .. and this adapter seems to work quite nicely.
