Display Performance Continued

Color refproduction on this set is absolutely spot-on.  I would say that it's even better than the 2405FPW that I gave up for it which also had awesome color reproduction.  All of the colors are bright and seemingly right where they should be.  The only small thing that I've noticed so far with the color is that on large areas of "true white" you can see just a tad bit of a red hue.  Other than that everything is spot-on in this department!

Dell 3007WFP - Desktop Shot

It's hard to take a picture that really captures the true picture quality of this display, but as you can see from the picture it's an amazing sight.  The desktop that I have selected in that photo was created in the monitors native res and is truely amazing in person.

Dell 3007WFP - Tri-color Test Pattern

A few simple nVidia test patterns show how great the color reproduction is and how vibrant the colors are.  If you haven't noticed from any of the previous pictures yet, this monitor also displays black very well.  It's a deep rich black that's nearly unsaturated by the black light, I seemed to have a bigger problem with this on the 2405FPW.

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.
