Used Dell 3007WFPt a good choice

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have a chance to buy a used dell 30 inch monitor.. model is the one I mentioned in the title. The dell 3007WFPt.. Anyone here have 1 or can recommend or explain anything about it.. obviously it might be a few years old.

Would it even be a good replacement for my U2410? It still has a good panel inside of it. I figure my gtx 480 should be able to handle it otherwise I'll get the 580 or a dual gpu card.

Is there any issues with gaming or ghosting on this particular model? Known issues or anything. . Its either I get that or I can get a used dell 2007 to put next to current monitor.

Thoughts?

LOL I'm sorry I thought it was one of the older tn models, I didn't even read the full model number.

This is just one of the embarassing moments that will get me flamed some day

Say what????? TN panel and huge quality downgrade from a U2410? LOL
Dell 3007WFP uses S-IPS panel for god sake.

To OP: I think that's a HC version, you might wanna get the service tag and call Dell to verify. The model number is 3007WFPt but product number could be 3007WFP-HC, should have rev A04 too.
And whether you should upgrade or not I already explained. 2560x1600 >>> 1920x1200 for gaming, sure you might serious horsepower to drive at that resolution but it's definitely worth it.

IMO it depends on your gaming. Personally I find that 30" makes it much, MUCH more immersive and cooler than gaming on anything smaller, including eyefinity (unless you do 3x30" eyefinity, but that's a different story). And the much higher res is just plain awesome, both in and out of games. But at the same time, playing competitive is easier on a smaller screen because you don't have to look around to see the whole picture.

And one GTX480 is enough to hold you over for now. Yes you should make plans to buy a second one soon, but you won't need to rush out and get it just to make your games playable if you get what I'm saying.

All that being said, I think you'd have to be crazy to think twice about getting a 30" panel. For me, it's gotten to the point where I wouldn't even consider using anything smaller or lower res for my main monitor. It really makes that much of a difference.

Thanks guys... and yes the 3007 is a IPS panel.. I'll never go TN again. haha!

Well, It is an amazing price, but I worry that buying a possible 2-4 yr old monitor is a bad choice. but I would love to get it, and then landscape my 2410 next to it. biggrin.gif

so i should just go for it.. I like it! oh and thanks manyak, I'll be getting something better than the 480, not another one.

Get a GTX 580 then add another in SLI later unless you have the fund for both, that's what I'm doing now.

It is a HC.. going to get it now. the HC is better right?

Edit* K i went for it. I just got home with my new Dell 3007 WFP-HC
and it is a Rev A03 btw travis.. so there's a newer Rev A04 huh. hmm.. I got it for a STEAL so I'm ok with that. Now it's time to plug into my beast and put through the paces.

So no OSD, how do you adjust brightness n stuff?
