I read about rumours of this when I was buying my 24" Dell. The thing I don't like is that its 3" larger than my 24" but still the same resolution, so you're going to have a more serious screen door effect.

You can just use a HDMI to DVI-D adapter, as it has HDCP anyway. I tried it out on mine and it works fine.

ah the original posting doesnt mention anything about its HDCP support. These standards really have gone a tad wrong there is simply to many with similar names that do pretty much the same thing.

I was pleased when DVI became standardised / everyone started to use the same version.

Still i can hardly afford the 24" version nevermind the 27" !

Good panel brightness, slightly slow refresh...but I like the connectivity and design of this panel. I'm in the market for something bigger than 20 inch, and with higher res than 1680x1050, but I can hardly imagine adding 7 inches of diagonal and just upping the res one "notch".

We need much better panels. Hardware is there to push them @ 60FPS or higher...

The 22" Chimei / CMV panels that are 1680x1050 fall into a similar category. Its more size, but the dot pitch forces you to push it back further. If Dell's 30" wasn't a "dumb" panel I'd buy it. Problem is the thing only supports two resolutions, one is too high, the other is far too low, and has only one input in the form of dual link DVI.

YEah that's what's got me holding off ATM. I love my LG 204WT...it's a great gaming panel, but just not quite large enough any more. Looking @ 22inch models from anyone is a waste of time, as the mentioned resolution is the same as 20inchers..so less actual resolution, IMHO. Size before quality has never been my thing...

I'd really like to see some panels with DVI/component inputs, and maybe HDMI, although HDMI is a waste of time, IMHO, especially on a panel that does not have it's own speakers.

2560 x 1600 or 2048 x 1536 would be nice....

I've spent alot of time gaming at 2560x1600 on a Dell 3007, and I've briefly tried the Apple 30", and come away disappointed both times. The Dell was blurry as hell under even medium motion like world of warcraft, and the Apple was even worse, but with tragically bad contrast and an uneven backlight.

Typically, like all Apple users, they write essay's on why their 30" is better than Dell's 30" and thus worth the massive price disparity, mostly by making up facts and specs etc... Something that most people have come to expect from a people that are trying to convince the world that Steve Job's poo is in fact pure white, and has no smell whatsoever.

No HDMI component inputs is a massive downer as well, more for the fact that you cant use consoles than the fact that HDMI is orwelian technology.

But yea... The Dell isn't worth the pricetag, and looks rubbish unless you're photo editing, and despite what the Church of Steventology is preaching, Apple's offering is even worse.

(10, Oct, 2006 / SEC)SAMSUNG Introduces New Ultra-Wide, 30" LCD Monitor New commercial monitor designed for medical, graphics and engineering professionals

IRVINE, Calif. - October 10, 2006 - Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a world-leading manufacturer of professional LCD and PDP display products, today introduced the SyncMaster 305T, an ultra-wide, high-resolution 30-inch TFT-LCD monitor.

Designed for the commercial market, the 305T combines a 16:10 wide-screen design and high, 2560x1600 resolution, making it ideal for a variety of professional applications, including medical, engineering, control rooms, CAD, graphics and design, and desktop publishing.

Other specifications include 400cd/m2 brightness, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 178/178 degree viewing angle, a fast response time of 6ms (GTG), and a 0.25 pixel pitch for clean, tight image reproduction.
Priced at $1999.99 MSRP, the 305T is a competitive choice for its size and performance value, said Andrew Weis, product marketing manager, display products, Samsung Electronics America, Inc.
"As a research and development leader, Samsung has the unique advantage of being able to produce great products to meet the needs of wide range of industries," Weis said. "The 305T is an outstanding choice for professionals that require superior image quality, versatility and an extended viewing area."

In addition to its specifications, the 305T is equipped with a number of features geared towards the professional user. This includes an 80mm height adjustable stand with flexible tilt and swivel capabilities, five USB 2.0 ports (one up, four down) and a wide viewing area that can support multi-window applications, helping to create improved work efficiency and reducing the need for two monitors. It also has wall-mounting brackets for space savings.

To aid in reduced power consumption, the 305T employs Samsung's Digital Power Management Signaling (DPMS) mode to automatically assess whether the monitor is in use and switches it to stand-by mode, which uses less than two watts of power.

All Samsung displays are backed by a three-year warranty on labor and parts, including the backlight, as well as toll-free technical support for the life of the display.

The 305T will be available in November through Samsung resellers and distribution channels, which can be located by calling 1-800-SAMSUNG or by visiting www.samsung.com. Samsung Power Partners receive special promotions, lead referrals, training and technical support, as well as collateral and marketing materials.

I'm waiting for the price drop on a 24".

Can't afford one right now. My 6800U died and 1GB of RAM.

So, I just had a blow out on an 8800GTX and 2GB RAM.

Try to keep in mind that you can't really play 3D games on any 24" monitors

I mean in lag. Not blurring or anything, but input lag, or the time it takes for the DRMed up image processor to spit out your image on the screen. The first Dell 2407 I had only had about 15ms lag over the CRT. The second one had about 60ms, this one has about 40ms.

The first one was great, except it had a fault in it, the last two Ive had are rubbish. Its pot luck and depends on which vendor supplied the panel for your particular monitor, and when it was made. The samsung is even worse, the Benq is just as bad, and the HP is the worst of all.

There is no good one. 24" monitors are 95% bad. I got lucky first time around and intend to keep RMAing Dell monitors until I get another sweet one. The CMV 22"s are dreadful, the 30"s are worse by far, for different reasons, and the 20s are too small.

The monitor I use for gaming is a Sony Trinitron 24" widescreen CRT. There is no other monitor on the face of this earth that will provide a better gaming experience, and it was mine at a garage sale for less than the price of an X-Fi.

Its not 24" viewable mind you, its about 22.5" viewable, but it provides far better colour, contrast, and definition than any LCD. If you are a gamer, and care about gaming, this is the monitor you need.

In contrast, for a main monitor that you use for working long sessions, the 2407 is the ultimate monitor in that category.
