I was looking at getting a 30in monitor. Please leave now if your going to say its a waste of money.

This is the list on Dell. I will not buy from Dell since there are better prices elsewhere.

My main concern is that there are multiple reviews saying that the monitor is "wobbly" from the weight of the panel. I know my 24in are a little but i was hoping someone could clarify this. I don't trust other reviewers when they don't compare it to another product.

Second. Of the 4 monitors, the cheaper two are S-PVA panels? and the $2k+ are IPS. Does anyone have one of the TN versions? How is the color uniformity across the screen?

Thanks.

Yeah, I saw that. It may be Core i7 vs 2 30in monitors...

I was in the market a while back for some large resolution gaming and my choice, easily, was the 305T. One thing you will need to think about though is if you are going to be gaming on this/these beasts. A GPU upgrade might be in your future if you play any even slightly power hungry games.

But thats all down the road. =P

Get the 3007WFP-HC. The panel quality is reportedly much better than the newer one.

Thanks. This is mostly used for graphic design and video editing. I don't game much but a 780i mobo is coming soon so I will be able to run SLI. I can play all my games on high on my 24in monitor without a problem right now...

I had 3, then I sold one because 6 horizontal feet of monitors was a pain. It was difficult to move the mouse all the way across. (5760x1200)

Thanks, I will keep that in mind.

Anyone know about the stability of the monitor? There were quite a few reviews that said it wobbled a lot but they don't compare it to anything. I suppose that if I shake my desk the monitors will move. Should I expect something similar to my 24iners?

I'd rather have a 2560x1600 30" panel over a 42" that does 1920x1200. I'm fairly sure the OP would too.

1080p isn't 1200... why do everyone mix this up????

There are 4kx2k TVs...and this monitor, among others.

Games don't like 16:9. Plus most TVs won't do DVI.

Exactly. I want this for multiple reasons: When editing full HD, I will be able to view the entire image along with a panel of tools. I will be able to edit 8MP images without being zoomed in so far. I'm not looking for an increase in size as much as a resolution increase.

When are those becoming available in the US? For that price it may be worth it. But then again, do I really want to loose an inch off my current setup?

Yeah that 23 in. monitor is sexy, but if you look at the number of pixels (which is a very odd resolution btw), it's an insignificant increase from 1920x1200.

I want a 30 in. because it's literally four of my laptop's screens (15", 1280x800) o.o

From what I've read, my vote goes to this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824113013

HOLY CRAP IT'S DOWN TO $1,099!!!! I didn't notice! I hope it stays that low long enough for me to buy it o.o

Anyways my reasoning is mostly because of the connection options, and also it has a really cool PIP, where you can hook up a Bluray player or similar HDMI-output thing to it, and while you're on your desktop, you'll have the player display in a window! And you can scale it, make it partially transparent, drag it around, it looks awesome!

(Scroll down a bit)

Do any of the other 30 inchers have that?

Anyways, for gaming it's not the best, and it's not the cheapest, but it looks like the best for multipurpose and functionality.
