Dell 3007WFP 30-inch LCD Monitor Review
4.5 Star Review  ubergizmo.com - Feb 14, 2006

The Dell 3007WFP 30” wide screen LCD display is one of the most, if not the most awesome, computer monitor on the market. Its native resolution is 2560x1600 which is about 4 Million pixels (4 Megapixel). In monitor real estate, that’s the equivalent to three 1280x1024 pixels 17” displays. The 3007WFP competes directly with Apple’s 30” Cinema Display and has several advantages over it: It has better brightness and contrast, weighs a bit less, has a warranty three times as long, and a slightly cheaper price. 4 Megapixel is cool but 8 Megapixel is twice as cool, right? We’ll tell you what we think of the Dell 3007 WFP and how we used it as the centerpiece of our 4960x1600 pixels windows desktop.

5 Star Review   By member nblaine - Nov 8, 2006   

Strengths: Incredible size. 2560X1600 resolution.

Weakness: No VGA input to test out on older video cards at lower resolutions in times of debugging hardware.

I had two of these at work and then I go home and I felt my productivity limited by the monitor size. Trust me this thing makes anything else seem obsolete. Drive the monitor with a Sapphire X1950 Pro at 2560X1600 - its great.

It's big... too big?
5 Star Review   By member Lakario - Oct 24, 2006   

Strengths: The screen is simply massive. There is enough room to do pretty much anything you need- whether it's gaming, theater, or development.

Weakness: The screen isn't quite as bright as the 19" ViewSonic UltraBrite A91F+ I upgraded from, but the screen real estate makes up for that.

It is really hard to fathom how large this screen really is until you take it out of the packing for the first time. It is simply incredible. I don't think I will ever be able to go back to a standard sized display ever again knowing what I do now. The picture is crystal clear and the theater experience makes it one of the best purchases I have ever made.

Bad for gaming. Bad for Movies. Great for a headache
1 Star Review   By member owenowen - Jul 30, 2006   

Strengths: Big, Bright, Decent colors.

Weakness: Ghosting.Try CSS and see if you can hit ANYTHING with this.

I'm sending this back. The ghosting is is so bad, I thought I had interference from another appliance. I took it over to a friend to see if it was my computer. It still looked like my vision after I take a left hook to the temple.This unit has a serious problem, and they are going to have to do some recalls to make people happy.

Excellent Monitor
5 Star Review   By member JetSolo - Jul 27, 2006   

Strengths: Size, this thing is so huge you have to look at it from afar.

Overall, an excellent monitor - the size of this thing is amazing. I'm able to do all of my graphic work on it and work efficiently with 4 programs. The pixel response time is great for games. Would definetly recommend.

4 Star Review   By Dell 3007WFP on A2Z COMPUTERS - Jun 13, 2006   

Strengths: Huge size and high resolution

Weakness: Tweaking controls (brightness, contrast etc.) can be a bit tedious

Ordering was easy and monitor arrived promptly and installed (along with an appropriate video card which can handle the resolution at an acceptable frame rate) without any problems. No missing pixels

Dell Ultrasharp 30
5 Star Review   By member Anonymous - May 19, 2006   

Strengths: Size, brightness, ease of use, works on either PC or MAC. Light weight

Weakness: Size, unless you have have the desk space don't consider it.

Box arrived, a little dirty and dented. Was worried about how the monitor did in shipping. Packed with more than 6 inches of extra space around the LCD. The monitor was perfect, not a lost pixel. The monitor is very light, not much more then the Dell 24" LCD which I have several. Connected to Mac G4 with ATI Radeon 9600 PRO MAC/PC and "WOW". My 24" LCD seems small beside the 30". Very sharp picture. Video is excellent. I don't see "bright / dark" areas on the LCD as previously described, perhaps that has been corrected. I strongly recommend this LCD for anyone who needs the real estate, I do medical slides and photo images and this is just right for Aperture, Keynote and PowerPoint.

Best value for a large monitor
5 Star Review   By member jwoo87 - May 10, 2006   

Strengths: Biggest LCD with a good resolution on the market. Very bright. Good price relative to the Apple Cinema, though I hear the Apples are slightly better made.

Weakness: Somewhat pricey, but better than LCD TVs with low resolution. Response time for gaming, but that applies to all LCDs. Lack of alternative inputs, for people who want to use it as a TV.

Some people have complained about the brightness uniformity. As of right now, I do not see any problem. The monitor works without dual-link DVI, but it will only be at 1280x800 resolution. I wouldn't recommend it. I suppose you can lower the resolution to play games. The power button has a really bright light, which may be a little annoying. Overall, a wonderful toy - enjoyable but perhaps a bit overkill for typical uses.

Confused about the Rave Reviews
3 Star Review   By member yokogaijin - May 3, 2006   

Strengths: Really, really big.

Weakness: Extreme Ghosting especially with DVDs and anything in black...

I am confused about some of the reviews that say "no ghosting". What did you do to your screen to avoid this? I mean, when I used this puppy on the very first day, I could swear Casper lived inside my display the ghosting was so bad. DVDs are honestly unwatchable. If someone knows a trick that I don't, please let me know. Still haven't used it for gaming, I am sure it will rock with my SLI dual 7800GTX graphics cards. But watching trailers on Apple.com or watching DVDs with my son are both terrible (that is an understatement). My only recommendation is that you see one of these in action before purchasing. Maybe I just got a bum screen. Oh well. With that said, I still think the sheer size and colors when using the cpu are awesome!

Excellent Monitor with a HUGE amount of screen real estate!
5 Star Review   By member bobley12 - Apr 28, 2006   

Strengths: HUGE! A massive amount of screen real estate. No ghosting and mine had 0 dead pixels. Mount is easily adjustable with 1 finger.

Weakness: Very expensive! The shock of staring at such a huge screen!

First and foremost, this monitor is huge. I went to my nearest apple store to see their version of the 30" display and thought it was big, but once I saw the dell version I ordered arrive I noticed that it is not big, it's HUGE! At the maximum resolution, you can easily have 4 windows open and tile them by right clicking on the windows taskbar and its just like you have 4 independant monitors. I needed the extra screen real estate for my work without having a bunch of monitors attached, so this was the highest resolution monitor I could find from a reputable company. The styling is very nice and it is easily adjustable with one finger. I tried the game Battlefield 2 in the resultion 2560x1600 and saw no ghosting at all, the same is true in DVD moives as well. You really have to see it to believe the sheer size of this thing. For somebody who just came off of a 20.1 widescreen, there is no comparison.

Amazing Monitor
5 Star Review   By member ProductUser254 - Apr 22, 2006   

Strengths: Resolution (you could probably play 8 dvds at once if you needed to), size (you might want to step back a little). I won't need a new TV or monitor for a very long time.

Weakness: Expensive! Selection of inputs - probably should be accompanied by a capture card; luckily, those are cheap. Slightly uneven lighting on sides, but only if you sit close(its an incedence angle thing

For movies and games you could not find a better display. Just make sure your graphics card can support it; works wonderfully with my 7900GT. One drawback of any monitor this size is that to run it at full resolution with modern games, you need a behemoth (or two) of a graphics card to get a good framerate. Overall, a great choice, if you can spend the money.

Worth every penny
5 Star Review   By member BigBear Computers - Apr 9, 2006   

Strengths: Awesome resolution, nice form factor, more viewing adjustments than the Apple 30in display. Better response time and brightness than the Apple also.

Weakness: I hated letting go of this much money for a monitor.

Beats the Apple 30in cinema display in every catagory and after extensive research this is the one to buy. Highly rated by several websites. Games play like a CRT monitor and DVD's are right on.

Dell quality is miserable as well as their support
1 Star Review   By member azaparov - Mar 3, 2006   

Strengths: Good form factor

Weakness: Backlight evenes is awful, as well as changes once monitor warms up.

Got first monitor thinking it is good competitor to Apple. Turned it on and noticed that one side is much brighter then the other. Called DELL techie he says it is NORMAL!! Call another techie, finally they arranged for replacement. Got replacement same issue - one side is brigher, not by much but still extremely annoying when you dealing whith bright images. 3 days later monotor died, does not power up at all. Based on my overal 2 hours spend on the line with DELL and the quality of the stuff they produce i would never consider any dell product again.

Great huge monitor
5 Star Review   By member tranle - Feb 16, 2006   

Strengths: 30" screen, max resolution 2560x1600, includes a USB HUB with a card reader CF/SM/SD/MS/MMC. Good contrast and color uniformity.

Weakness: Requires a graphic card with Dual-Link DVI-D. Only 1 input (DVI-D). Only 1 usable resolution 2560x1600. Only minimal control: brightness. Expensive.

I got this monitor to replace my Sony 20" (1600x1200) monitor. This monitor is huge and after a week of using it my old monitor seems small. The resolution of this monitor requires that you use one of the newer graphic cards that has a dual-link DVI output. It has only 1 input and 1 brightness control, DELL seems to assume you would have to use your graphic card to tweak the rest of the display parameter. I am currently using it with an ATI X1600 both as a computer monitor and a HDTV monitor (pc hdtv tuner). And for that purpose it works very well. Although this monitor is expensive the 5 years warranty offered by DELL is not ($79). Hopefully I will not have to use it. Comments after 1 month of usage: The on/off and brightness buttons are software controllable (USB control) and tend to get stuck (disabled). I have to unplug the monitor and re-plug to reset them.
