Use 2011 iMac 27" as Display for 2012 Mac Mini

Just wanted to know if anyone has experience of the compatibility and work flow of using the iMac 27" (2011 dual Thunderbolt) ,as a display, with the new 2012 mac mini Thunderbolt. I am having issues with what type of display to buy and have returned the Apple Thunderbolt Display (ATD) due to a blue tint issue with them. I own a 2008 silver iMac 24" and am about to sell it but like the colour/saturation of the display.

I do really like the displays on the iMacs and can live with their calibration however the ATD is another storey.

Do the two devices just work with each other through a simple thunderbolt to thunderbolt cable and by using Target Display Mode ?? Has anyone done this and experienced any issues with the display such as lag or video signal problems.

Any help and comments greatly appreciated.
