Incredible amount of features and connection options; very impressive aesthetic quality; looks great with games and normal office tasks.
Very expensive even for a 30-inch model with so many features; color performance with movies was extremely lacking; no built-in sound; no coaxial connection for an HDTV over-the-air antenna.
If you're willing to pay the price for beautiful looks and loads of connection options in a 30-inch LCD monitor, 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.

Pros: Everything. Image is bright, colors are life-like and vivid without being overdone, text is razor sharp at native resolution, photo editing is pure joy, and the OSD controls are superfunctional and cool.
Cons: Giving everyone who sees it monitor envy.
Conclusion: Amazing monitor that does everything well and enhances your computing experience. If you're thinking about pulling the trigger, do it. You won't be disappointed.
nice monitor really sweet i must say it has one of the most pristine pictures ive seen the resolution of this monitor at 2560 x 1600 makes all the differance and really shows very sharp images and the color contrast is amazing seriously this is top of the line monitor material so understand that when your paying the extra bucks and make sure your video card can handle it the higher resolution is not easy on a low end video card
I bought this monitor as I wanted as large a desktop as possible. I also wanted to have a higher resolution and larger screen for gaming as well as video and photo editing. I also have the Dell 27" WFP and after having had the chance to compare the 2 side by side, I much prefer the 27". There is too much real estate with the 30" monitor, the color imaging is not quite as good as the 27", and I prefer the slightly higher resolution of the 27" monitor. The nature of these monitors is such that the packaging and shipping is extremely important. Don't buy on price alone. I got burned that way.
Actually my monitor is the new U3011 model which replaced the 3008WFP model. I love this monitor!!! The size makes reading print so easy. The colors are beautiful. Images are crisp and sharp. Height-Adjustable stand, tilt, swivel and built in cable-management. I have found nothing negative about this monitor. My husband has a 3007WFP model and I fell in love with it. I've wanted one ever since he purchased his 30 inch monitor about 3 years ago. So, he decided to gave me an early Christmas present. I'm so happy he did. It's a very expensive monitor, but if you can afford it, go for it!!! You won't be disappointed.
Before you buy, make sure that your hardware can actually drive it at 2560x1600. The HDMI connector on this monitor maxes out at 1920x1080. So, you'll either need displayport or dual-link DVI. My quad-core Sony had HDMI 1.3, but the drivers couldn't hack it. I had to punt to a lesser Dell w/ displayport support to drive it. The monitor is fantastic. Very sharp and a welcome change for my aging eyes in spite of running it at 2560x1600. If you really seek an awesome monitor for the price, this is the best deal.
