Not sure if this has been posted. If not here's the price on this badboy.

We gotta admit, we were stoked to learn this morning that Dell finally announced a price for their hot new 3007WFP, and then promptly made a mite bit disappointed upon finding out it's going to sell for $2,199

Yikes on the price. Was more than I expected, even at launch. With 2405FPW's occasionally being available for less than a grand $2199 is a bit much.

I'm holding onto my 2405FPW for now. Maybe when I have an uber system capable of playing games in this thing's native res... then we'll talk. lol

Yea, the native on that baby is much too high. No AA= :( Even the fastest of all PC's won't be able to get good FPS on COD2 and Fear.

I'd buy it in a heart beat if it had more than just a DVI connection.

Glurg... Mmmm... 30" of goodness. Has it been revealed if this is the same panel used by Apple's 30"?

I'd get one but I just threw Dell a bunch of money for a new Inspiron 9300 for work... (1.86GHz Dothan, 1G Mem, 100G HD, 7800GTX Go, WUXGA for $1450 after $900 in coupons and a parts replacement call... woot!).

This might run it nicely at native res.

Yes, aliasing would be noticeable at that resolution on a large enough display. It's all about the proportions in question (resolution and physical display dimensions). Take 1600x1200 on a 15" display, you'd have a hard time noticing the aliasing but easily spot it on a 19" display.

The biggest advantage of this display, along with the smaller FPW displays, is that it does not have very high DPI. DPI is normal.
