Dell’s UltraSharp U3011 is a massive 30-inch LCD monitor sporting a 10-bit 2560×1600 IPS panel. That 10-bit means you’ve got a billion colors to play with. And that’s a good thing because the U3011 will do a very good job displaying color with a 117% CIE 1976 color gamut. Viewing angles are terrific at 178 degrees while response times at 7ms can be a bit faster. Brightness is 370 cd/m2 and static contrast is 1000:1 with connectivity options that include two DVI-D ports, DisplayPort and two HDMIs. Price is a hefty US$1499. Source: Dell
Now there is one thing: the backlight, as far as I can tell, is of the CCFL variety. I don’t know about you but I’d prefer saving myself $500 and getting the slightly smaller 27-inch LED Cinema Display from Apple even if it has 160 less vertical pixels.
