Great price, and an excellent monitor. Paid £785 for it back in June and that was a good deal at the time.

I'll post this image that I posted last time again to show the difference between this monitor and other monitors.
http://tomthorpe.co.uk/resolutions.jpg

Before the usual criticisms about this start, this monitor is nothing like a 32" LCD TV (hence the higher price). The green box in the above picture is about the resolution you'd get on a normal 720p HDTV 32" LCD. The dark blue box is 1080p, currently the highest that any of the HDTV formats support. Both are dwarfed by the red box, which is this monitor.

Also, remember, to use it properly you'll need a graphics card that supports dual-link DVI (which is a single port, not dual as in two DVI ports).

Thanks for reposting that Tomfoolery:thumbsup:
#3
great card, but as mentioned, if you dont have a dual-link DVI card, forget it else you're stuck at a really low res.

personally the 27" dell is the better monitor ..if only dell would make a 30" with the connections that the 27"/24" has, now that would be a good monitor!
#4
i can add my recommendation for the 27" version, it's stunning ... of course i am biased as that is what i have, but for the price i paid (£580) it was by far the best value for the features :)
#5
The price I'm getting is £656.83.... less than in the OP. Woohoo! :)
#6
A great deal...too big for me (not enough space) but a great deal none the less.
Hot Vote.
#7
What is Dell's dead pixel policy?
#8
Any way to get quidco on this as well? (and same as above 656 delivered for me)

hot hot hot - goodbye xmas bonus
#9
Apparently 5% back with Quidco!! :)
#10
Yes but I was struggling to get the correct link thru quidco - sorted now - follow quidco link then click dell logo then select the small business site and search to get the deal :)
#11
Awesome.
#12
Excellent monitor. I want it. Argg!
#13
It’s showing as £656.83 inclusive here also which is ~£629 including Quidco!

The cheapest dual-link DVI card is a HD 2400 Pro which is under £30.
#14
Hmm. Now I see why Dell's dropping prices on the 3007... there's a 3008 model coming out in Japan and in the US now! With the brand new "display port" interface, plus loads more video input - composite, component, D-SUB, HDMI and 2 DVI ports!

http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquirer/news/2007/11/12/world-meet-3008wfp-displayport

Oh... what to do... what to do?

Might take a couple more years for the 3008 to hit this price level though.

Good point. If you just want to hook up a PC though the extra connectivity is redundant. I do think they should have added a second DVI input though.
#17
Well, I have the 2407 at the moment, and I've hooked up my PS2 to the component input. Can't do that with the 3007. I use my monitor for everything - watching TV, playing games (PC and PS2), working, etc.

Oh! The hard decisions in life! (hehe).
#18
For use with HD sources it’s better to use a panel with lower resolution so that the image doesn’t have to be scaled. It does support HDCP but it has limited resolution support.
#19
Hmm. Too late now. Dell order confirmation just came through. Seems like it's not possible to cancel it.

Why do you want to cancel?
I thought delivery was showing as 1 to 2 weeks so I assumed there’s plenty of time to cancel!
#21
Well, mainly because I'm trying to save money. :whistling:

But, also I thought that I could just continue using it the way I'm using my 24" now (with the PS2 on composites), but then I only realised that it didn't have the same input ports after someone mentioned it on here.... :oops:
#22
Oh well... it's out for delivery already. :santa:

You do have to be careful buying from SB site as they may not take it back for a refund and even if they do they may charge you shipping.
May be better to just enjoy it!
#24
Maybe I'm being stupid or maybe Dell have pulled the deal but I can only see it for £1009 excluding delivery and VAT. This is on the small business site. Oh well... unless someone can confirm this offer is still on.
Unless kamion wants to sell his ordered monitor to me upon arrival... (no I dont live in Nigeria and won't be paying by Western Union)
#25
Sorry just figured it... apply coupon code. duh!
Must have got over excited as have been waiting to buy this for a while
#26
Folks, just make sure you have the right video card to run this before ordering.
#27
Very good deal, very tempted but I wonder what other improvements the 08 model will include. LED backlight maybe ? I have bought 3 of these and each time the colour has been odd with different colour desity on different parts of the screen.
#28
nice screen~!
#29
Is this okay with that XPS 420 with an Nvidia 8800GT card (it says Dual Link DVI is that the same as Dual Link DVI-D?)?
Reason I ask is the 2 are a preety good price at the moment ?
Anyone bought a TV Tuner for the XPS 420 as there are 2 options on the Dell site, do both come with a remote control ?
Is the accelerator option one worthwhile ?
Does Vista Premium have a Media Centre ?

Thanks for any replies

:santa::thumbsup:
#30
nice i bit pricey but i will take a look after all i have been looking for a new one to replace my 22inch dell for a while :-D:whistling::-D
#31
Great price for a great monitor, but i'm happy with my 24" Samsung for now!

Indeed, I almost pulled the trigger on a 3007 in late November before finding out about the 3008... Like you say, though - the launch price is undoubtedly going to be £silly, I reckon you'd be able to buy 2 3007's at this bargain price instead of a new 3008.

Argh, what to do ditto :)

[edit] *tsk* Can't ignore such an excellent deal, ordered :w00t:

Remember this monitor ONLY accepts display resolution inputs at 2560x1600 and 1280x800 - Other resolutions are NOT possible without scaling done by the graphics card, which means that this monitor really is only for the PC - other devices normally compatible with DVI/HDMI will NOT work unless the resolution can be scaled or the resolution is 1280x800 - which is pretty pointless on this screen. Also, HDCP only works at 1280x800, not the full resolution AFAIK.

As an ex-owner of the 3007WFP I can't reccommend it unless you have a very specific use for it (CAD/Photoshop etc). It really is too big, and the lack of inputs makes the monitor almost pointless. The 2407WFP (my current monitor) is a far, far better deal, and comes with many more inputs.

As other users have mentioned, the 3008wfp will be available shortly, which is a huge improvement (at least in terms of inputs/scaling) over the 3007wfp.
#34
I've got one of these monitors and they're utterly fantastic if you need plenty of screen space, but like the last poster said, unless you have a need for 2560x1600, you might be better off with something that runs a lower resolution.
I personally don't find it too big, but then I've been using it day in day out for 9 months for web dev and photoshop (absolute godsend in PS btw). The picture on the first page of this topic illustrates just how much more space you get compared to other resolutions, but of course that can be a disadvantage when you want to hook something up to it.
If you want to connect a PS3, 360 etc, get something that is made for that purpose. This is a serious monitor made for people who really want to make use of the uber resolution.
#35
Good deal, but you don't need a monitor this big unless you're an illustrator/designer :) Voted hot

Actually not in this case - the 2560x1600 resolution is rather clever because it means you can display 1280x800 (which is basically 720p) without any interpolation as you are running at exactly half the resolution. This means for each pixel on the output matches perfectly to four pixels on the panel.

Dean - no idea how you came to that conclusion, I'm not an illustrator or a designer but would love a monitor of this type, unfortunately the only PCI graphics card I can find that supports it is 300 odd pounds which is unfortunately what I would need to drive it properly from a Dell d series dock.

720P = 1280x720 so it would be stretching the image in the vertical domain by roughly 10%; not ideal.

For use with HD sources I’d prefer the Dell 24 or 27” as they support 1080P and may well support 1:1 pixel mapping which is ideal for HD sources.

Under 3hrs now before this coupon expires and the price reverts to something orrid!
#39
oh god, 5 minutes left and I'm stil undecided....Nah sod it, I'll 'live' with me 2407 :-D
#40
Arrgh - missed this by a few hours - if anyone did get a monitor they no longer want then let me know by PM ....
