ExtremeTech has taken a closer look at Dell's 30" UltraSharp 3008WFP-HC LCD display:
Dell has just announced the UltraSharp 3008WFP-HC, a 30-inch display with a boatload of connections, including a shiny new DisplayPort connector. To drive these connectors, Dell has built in a video processor which is capable of scaling to a variety of different resolutions, as well as handling inputs from HDMI, DisplayPort, and analog video sources. Unfortunately, Dell isn't disclosing what video processor is being used, except to say that it's not a Silicon Optix HQV processor.
Let's take a quick tour of the 3008WFP-HC, then dive into the numbers and subjective impressions.
You can read the full review over here. Overall the reviewer isn't too wild about this $1,999, he says that while it's excellent for video or photo editing it falls short in other areas like poor standard def video handling, some visible smearing in fast action games, odd gamma curve and limited resolution support.

They need one round or two more to improve it and it will be great.
Probably should have worked from a Samsung panel, but that's me.
