The increase in resolution will impress you as well as the color reproduction. Suprised you couldn't tell the difference. Were they 1080p or higher like the u2711?

I bought my hp zr30w unseen, quite honest never seen a ips in person besides the crappy ips panels in the ipad.
I was completely satisfied

Also you would have to look and see if those were 6 bit panels

Well eyefinity/surround in theory is good. After i set it up, It took up a massive amount of space and added a ton of cords, a small gripe overlooked with good organization. Once I had it all set up I was willing to accept all these small nuances if the immersion or effect was quality. The main deal killer for myself was the FOV issues. Essentially the game doesn't look like it it is just rendered on three displays with bezels in the middle. It creates a fisheye effect with the center monitor going inward and side monitors stretched a bit. I was unaware of this when i went into my surround setup. Since the resolution is no longer in a 16:9 aspect ratio, the games FOV gets kind of buggy creating this fisheye effect. If something is on a flanking monitor, and you move it to the center monitor to focus, it changes shapes and sizes. People argue that the flanking monitors mimic your peripheral view in real life, and should never be focused on directly, but only viewed with your peripheral vision. To me that is too much of a gimmick. I don't want to be told to focus here and not there, I am not a subject in some kind of magic experiment. Thus, the great hate for multi-monitor setups. Also game support, driver support, massive GPU horsepower, all small things that added.

They are however fantastic in a windows environment (As long as it isn't spanned, then they become horrible, google even looks ridiculous).

Those IPS panels were just absolute garbage. Uneven lighting, the works. I could tell a difference, but it isn't near the same as any of the quality panels that were discussed in this thread. I am just going to pretend i never saw any of them.

Sorry for double post but my previous was so long and a different topic, I felt it should be separated.

I would be willing to bet they were 6 bit panels. Which means they can't produce as many colors as the dell. Which if memory is correct it's a 8 bit panel. 8 bit = 16,777,216 colors 6 bit= 262,144 my source http://compreviews.about.com/od/multimedia/a/LCDColor.htm
