I was considering this monitor but now that you say this, I do not think I will get it.
Backlight bleeding is the biggest turn-off to me because I watch high definition movies and TV episodes at night in my basement (no lights but the monitor itself).
I stare straight ahead at my monitor so viewing angle is not the strongest selling point.
I'd personally be willing to spend an extra $50-75 if it meant I was getting better color reproduction.
120Hz is not important to me because we're dealing with monitors, not TVs. I personally do not care for 3D.
16:10 vs. 16:9 - I play PC games and watch 1080p/720p media. Assassin's Creed games look a bit small on my 4:3 monitor with massive black bars on the top and bottom. I would imagine on a newer widescreen monitor this would actually look normal. I'm fine with 16:9. I have read a lot of threads and at this point it seems to be more preference than anything else.
For the money I want to spend, I won't get any higher a contrast ratio than 1000:1. My current monitor's CR is 350:1.
