Here it is!  Dell's newest and largest flat panel monitor the 3007WFP features a 30" panel and a fast 11ms grey-to-grey response time.

After previously owning the Dell 2405FPW for a mere 22 days I was immediately hooked on widescreen gaming, there's just nothing like it.  With the motivation and the proper funding I couldn't find a reason not to check out the 3007WFP.  I was a bit skepticle at first about 30" displays but dove in head first on this one and ended up being so thankful that I did!

Just a heads up, this monitor is not for the faint of heart or faint of wallet size.  Massive monitors go hand in hand with a massive price tag.  If you live in the states you can pick up one of these beauties for a mere $2200 give or take a few hundred depending on promotions and warranty options.  Many ask, "Is it worth the hefty price tag?"

Read on to find out the answer to that question...

Hey mate

I believe Frag and twisted will know as Dave said.

I'm pretty sure our version was the samsung panel thoughQuote

Yes the model that I had (and that twisted now has) rocks the Samsung panel, which is like an orgasmic explosion of colors and crispness. Nothing can compete, muahahaha!

I had absolutely no backlight bleeding issues. More than likely what Hexus was talking about was the fact it only appears to have uneven backlighting if you sit to close to the set. I at first experienced this and was a bit distrought until I pushed the set back about a foot and everything was then perfectly even. It's hard to sit too close to a monitor that big as the backlighting will look a bit uneven due to the extreme viewing angles.

Hands down the 30" Dell is PURE PWNAGE!!!Quote

Thanks to all for quick responses. From what I understand, Dell will use either LG or Samsung panels indiscriminately. Probably according to which offers the best deal at any one time. Dell sales rep. (in India!) told me that they cannot (or will not) pick out a Samsung panel at request. They do claim to have stringent quality control, so there is nothing to choose between LG or Samsung based units. This might be true, but I understand that the Samsung S PVA panels are superior. Trouble is they do not seem to be available in the UK under their own brand, and we have no choice other than Apple (much more expensive) or Dell in this size.

There is one way to try without risk: if the Dell proves to be duff on arrival, then there is the option offered by Dell of a full refund within 7 days, for any reason. This seems a pretty fair deal to me.
