Dell 3007WFP 30" TFT Monitor

This is one area that Dell has failed to achieve a good end result with on this monitor. This monitor only features a single Dual-Link DVI input. That leaves everyone out to try that used to have all of their other video accessories hooked up to their 2405's, etc. For some this might be ok, like myself. I don't have anything but one computer hooked to it, and that's all I had planned for. If you have a DVD player, your Xbox 360, and 2 computer hooked up to your current monitor this probably isn't going to be a good option for you.
Besides the actual video inputs you'll find all of the other standard Dell inclusive features. You've got one high speed USB 2.0 output on the back of the monitor which connects four USB inputs. Two of the inputs can be found right next to the output port, and the other two can be found below the built in card reader on the side of the monitor.
Speaking of card reader... This monitor -as does the 2405FPW- features a built in card reader. The reader on this display is a 9-in-2 device and operates on USB 2.0. The reader is located on the left hand side of the display, directly in the middle. I've found that it's pretty easy to insert a memory card without having to look over at it to find the slot (after you've done it one or two times). The card reader works perfectly and is very fast. Using it with my 4gb 150x Secure Digital card it transfers photo's at lightning fast speeds. The reader is a feature that I am glad Dell has integrated in to their displays, mainly because once I switch over to my new rig I will lose the card reader that I have in my current rig, leaving me with nothing in the computer itself. Dell saves the day once again!
Now lets take a look at how the display panel performs, I think you'll be surprised...
