This monitor is not HDCP compliant.
Pretty sure it's an 8bit, rather than 10bit (which is really just 8bit + AFRC anyway) panel. Not that this should matter to most users - almost no one has a full 10bit workflow. It does have a 16bit LUT for hardware calibration though.
Very good choice for photographers and graphic designers, as long as they have enough money in their pocket :).
I don't think it's fair to regard the lack of audio in/out as such a great drawback.
It is, after all, supposed to be a monitor and not a high-quality audio lead extension that also happens to display pictures from your PC.
If a person cares as much about their audio as one assumes they care about their visuals when buying this monitor, they would would probably already have plenty of better places to plug their headphones in anyway (not to mention that a lot of speakers aimed at the PC desk also tend to have headphone jacks).
