For the right application, such as video or photo editing, this is about the best display we’ve seen. But it falls short of being a great, multifunction display due to poor handling of standard def video, odd gamma curve and limited resolution support. And then there’s that price… quote

If you're willing to pay the price for beautiful looks and loads of connection options ... you'll like what you get with the Dell 3008WFP. You may be less enthused with this display, however, after experiencing its lackluster color performance and low black levels when watching movies.

Although this monitor has incredible amount of features and connection options, very impressive aesthetic quality, I was not impressed with its lackluster color performance and low black levels. I used to own a DELL 3007WFP and the colour was perfect, since I started using DELL 3008WFP,...

This is my first 30" and 2560x1600 monitor. I bought it used, and it was worth every penny. Displayport didn't work properly, but I couldn't tell if it was a monitor or PC issue. DVI worked like a champ. It's a great screen.
