Dell has been shipping 30-inch LCDs for years now and I have been using one of the original 30-inch units and wouldn't give it up for anything. The new LCD is an improvement on the original LCD with a lot of nice new features and a big price tag. This may be the best LCD for gamers looking to play with high resolutions.




The screen has a 16:10 aspect ratio and uses IPS technology. The resolution for the LCD is 2560 x 1600 and it has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio. The dynamic contrast ratio for the screen is 100,000:1 and the screen can display 1.07 billion colors, which is way more than my original 30-inch LCD can handle. The screen has a 7ms response time so ghosting should not be an issue.


Viewing angles for the big screen are 178-degrees horizontally and vertically and the screen has a 0.2505mm pixel pitch. Connectivity options include a pair of HDMI ports, two DVI-D ports, VGA port, DisplayPort, and an integrated four-port USB hub. The screen has a stand that is height, tilt, and angle adjustable as well. You can order the screen right now for $1499.
