Do you own a Cintiq 24HD?

Hi all, I'm a long time Intuos tablet user, and recently made the leap to the cintiq, in the form of the 12" WX, and have sadly had to return it only a few days after purchasing it, hugely disappointed with its viewing angles and colour accuracy. After a lot of research and trying multiple calibration techniques and profiles, I couldn't get it to match my regular monitors (a samsung 24 and an Apple 20") - the whole screen just seemed incapable of displaying anything in the saturated spectrum, and the 1200 x 800 resolution just wasn't cutting it when I'm used to an A4 intous and a 24" screen!
Not wanting to simply leap blindly into an upgrade to the tune of £2000, I was wondering if anyone out there has one of the new 24" cintiqs, and whether they had any experience with how colour accurate it is? Colour accuracy is fundamental to the kind of work I do (doing pieces like this, where being able to see subtle hue and tone shifts in dark grey: Behold the Nightmare ) I realise that you can never calibrate for every monitor, but I'd at least want to be able to calibrate a cintiq to be close to what I'm seeing on my own monitors, which the 12WX simply couldn't do.
Any other thoughts on owning a 24" Cintiq would also be super appreciated, negative or positive. I'm aware of the ArtPen issues, but that won't be an issue, as I don't have one!

But still they were sold with the above information
Our devices are not capable enough in handling color information in comparison to printing...And simple calibration can be
easily done with some simple settings in OCD menus.
IT's all about usage!!
I compared the Cintiq with Eizo, Lacie in my first post and they don't come cheap because people who buy Eizo also buy a complementary "Ferrari" to go by!
Most Displays now come with Anti-Glare coating and they don't wear-off easily because we don't smudge them or scribble with a pen on them.
AG Coating is a Coat on the panel...A thin Film kind of coat!
You can remove the Anti-Glare coating but It will VOID YOUR WARRANTY and you wouldn't like that if you are paying a hefty sum
Just take a look at this Removing an Anti-Glare coating
And before buying you could try it out at a Wacom's Showroom or a Booth at any popular tech submit/Show!!

Yeah I was mainly comparing the 2711 to the 2713H. I know the 2713HM is the lower quality version.
