I use the 21UX.  It is very cool, but not perfect.  The resolution is
very sharp and the interactive pen works like a charm.  The angle is
very easy to adjust from essentially flat to nearly vertical, and
anywhere in between.  There are two levers on the back that are easy
to operate by grasping the sides of the screen and pressing the
levers with your fingers.  While it is color calibratable, mine is
still not nearly as bright as my Apple lcd display, so I usually drag
what I am working on over to the other screen to check colors.  You
can also mirror to don't have to drag it back and forth.

So, my opinion is that it is a wonderful tool, but I would not use it
as my only monitor because I don't think it calibrates as well as it
could.  I would like to hear if anyone else has calibrated theirs to
their liking.
