30-inches of Precision: A Look at Dell's UltraSharp U3011 30-inch Monitor

There are two types of power users on this planet, and they consist of those who use a 30-inch monitor, and those who don't. The latter far outnumber the former, but thanks to a number of factors, this particular digital divide is growing smaller by the day. For one, 30-inch monitors are somewhat more affordable compared to a few years ago, at least in the sense that the average Joe doesn't have to sell a kidney to come up with the scratch for one (except for teens, who are more interested in trading body organs for iPads, anyway).

Of course, if you're reading this, then you've probably already decided that a 30-inch monitor would look swell in your home office or game room. The question, then, is what does Dell's UltraSharp U3011 bring to the big-screen table? Quite a bit, actually. Simply put, the U3011 is the most feature rich and flexible 30-inch panel there is right now on the market.

I really like that 16:10 form factor, with which I am familiar from my current 24" HP LP2465, but the problem is that the Dell costs about 2/3 as much again as the 27" 16:9 Samsung SyncMaster models with PLS panels, S27A850T and S27A850D, respectively, that I've been eying. And while a larger screen would be nice, the 27" models do provide a sharper image, due to lesser pixel size at max resolution, and I have a sneaking suspicion that the quality of the Samsung models is superior. O well, while waiting for a solution to this problem of what to choose to turn up, I save money, which is probably a good thing as were I to purchase any one of these three models, I'd also have to upgrade from my ancient Geforce 7900 GTX to something significantly more powerful in order to run them....

I agree with Henri. The 27 inch DO provide a SHAPE EDGE TO THE MONITOR. I HAVE A SAMSUNG MONITOR AND THAT THING IS NO JOKE. EVERYTHING IS PRE CONFIGURED FOR THE EYES.

To tell you the truth I am looking at getting either a 24 or 27" right now, or better yet I would like to grab one the prices on either are nice and of course will only get nicer I a sure. While a 30" might be nice I am thinking it is more than I want in a desktop unit really. The +'s you guys add about the picture quality and responsiveness are also important ones as well.

I bought a 24 inch monitor and thought it wouldn't be to big, but when i opened the box and pulled it out i was overwhelmed by its size. I would love to know what happens if i put this on my desk.

But thats because i went from a 18inch to a 24 inch. Now when i go to a 18inch monitor in school i just look at it and wish i had a bigger monitor.
