Let me just say this, once you have used a 30" monitor, it's hard to come back to anything else. I previously purchased a 24" Dell Ultrasharp 2407WFP, and for most part I was pretty happy with it. But since I watch a lot of movies and edit a lot of photos on my computer, I wanted something a little bit bigger. So I bought the Dell U3011 and the HP ZR30w. The Dell monitor's appearance follows the standard Dell industrial design, which isn't as attractive as the Apple Cinema display. It has tons of input options for all your electronic devices. Overall, this is a great monitor, although I still stick to my 30" HP ZR30w for FPS games. The OSD is a really big advantage over the HP ZR30w though. However, I found the HP ZR30w to have better color and contrast. So I will be keeping the HP ZR30w and will return this Dell. One thing I've noticed is that my electricity bill has been a lot higher ever since I switched from a 24" panel to a 30" panel.
