30" Dell Monitor
« on: November 28, 2006, 06:43:28 PM »

I wondered whether anyone on this board has experience, good or bad, with the 30" Dell Monitor--model 3007WFP? It has gotten some good generic reviews, but i wondered whether it would perform at or above the level of the 30" Apple Cinema monitor. They are considerably less expensive, but are they as good?

Thanks.

I tried the 24" which was rubbish (20% brightness difference from left to right) as was Dell's customer service. you will need a special $$ video card to run the 30" as most ordinary cards can't provide the required resolution.

The video card doesn't have to be that special. All you need is a video card that has dual-link DVI and supports the resolution 2560x1600 at your desired refresh rate, there are now plenty of cards that do that.

Photolandscape, PC or Mac application? For PC, I was comparing the same & what I found was that Apple 30" though very excellent cannot(may be very limited) be color calibrated, while Dell can. They both are really the same LCD screen, so I was told.

Thanks for asking--I'm on Mac OSX. I've been using the HP 2335 23" LCD, but would like to get something bigger as I tend to make lots of larger prints on my Epson 4000.
