Final Thoughts

At a price tag of roughly $2100 this monitor definately isn't for anyone.  If you're looking for the best in class widescreen gaming / productivity monitor look no further as this set simply can't be beat.  Movie goes should steer clear and opt for a smaller set with more video input options.

The biggest question that most people have is "Is it worth it?"  Well that can only be answered by you.  In my eyes it's about the best $2000+ I've spent in quite some time.  I don't know what I'd do without this monitor, I'm not sure if I could ever comfortably go back to a smaller display.  Once you've felt the power of gaming in a dark room with a monitor this big you feel like you're in the game itself, you too will never want to go back to anything smaller.

I give this monitor a 4 star rating.  The one star deduction comes from it's hefty price tag and lack of video inputs on such an expensive display.  Other than that, this baby is a well rounded beast!

Hope you enjoyed the review, thanks for visiting Overclock3D!

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.
