So yea, title says it all.

For a mix of gaming and movies, what would be a better pick,

the Dell, the NEC or something else?

BTW I care about both input lag and picture/color quality and would like a balance between them. I also plan on routing movies through a receiver, so it needs to have a good 1600p scaler for that.

Ignore price plz, it's not an issue.

I would definitely go for the Dell. Fantastic build quality, a good friend of mine owns one and just loves it. (The 30", same as the one you're considering, just a few years older.)

If I'm not mistaken, it scored incredibly well on the Adobe RGB Gamut (117% iirc). The 3007WFP is also very good.
Some reviews say they prefer the older model above the newer one, though.

Both are fantastic monitors which use IPS panels, image quality will be top notch from either.
Also look at the Samsung XL30 - this has an LED backlight which improves the gamut. Although it uses an S-PVA panel and is really intended for accurate colour work, the picture might not be bold and colourful enough for gaming/movies.

Hmm, worried about the response time of an S-PVA, S-IPSs are fast enough right?
