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.

I read the review of the 30" Dell here on this site with great interest, because I am seriously considering buying one of these behemoths for Photoshop, spreadsheets, and video editing. What interested me was the remark about how even the backlighting is, and how much better the 30" monitor is than the 24" Dell.

Now this is in stark contrast to the condemnation on the site of the uneveness of the backlighting (on two examples) and how this aspect compares unfavourably with the Dell 24" 2405FPW monitor.

Now I am in a quandary. The conclusions of the two reviews cancel eachother out, and there is no concensus.

I understand the review samples were based on LG flat panels, but the Samsung panel, also used by Dell, is the better option. Perhaps the review sample here was a Samsung panel.

I wonder if anybody has tried a Dell 30" TFT monitor and can enlighten me with their experience.
