The Dell new 30 inch monitor gets 3007WFP-HC naming compared to the original 3007WFP model.
Dell claims the new monitor has 92% color gamut compared to typical displays at around 72% and it should produce brighter, crisper colors. It is achieved by using a Wide Cold-Cathode Fluorescent Lighting (W-CCFL) backlight, according to Dell ideal for gaming. I was kind of hoping for LED backlight but that's probably in Dell future roadmap.

The new monitor also has a faster 8ms grey-to-grey response time compared to 11ms on the older panel.

The 3007WFP-HC introduction price is $1699.00, the older 3007WFP model had $1999.00 introduction price just about few months ago but is now selling at around $1500, I did see it on sale as low as $1300 and the new monitor should push the price even further down. Nice to see the prices of large widescreens LCDs coming down.

Samsung, HP and NEC are also introducing new large LCD monitors, read more at DigiTimes Displays (http://www.digitimes.com/displays/a20061124VL203.html)
