Summary: 30" color calibrated... Unspeakable. Perfect for photography, or graphics design. All ports work flawlessly, stand is designed sturdy and functional. Highly recommend this monitor for Photographers, or anyone who does graphic design, or even gaming, the resolution and quality is phenomenal.
Summary: I bought both of mine from Newegg when they were on sale. I'd been considering both the U3011 and the HP ZR30W and the price drop on this one made the decision easy. I don't regret the purchase one bit.
Pros: I love the resolution. 2560x1600 is a lot of space to get things done, and the 16:10 aspect ratio is much nicer than the 16:9 garbage that everything else is. The panel is 10 bit per color so you get a significantly wider color space (and thus more accurate colors) than a typical display. Colors ...
Cons: HDMI input maxes out at 1920x1200, which isn't a big deal as DisplayPort and DVI both work for native resolution. The only way to put the monitor in portrait mode is to unscrew it from the mount and re-attach it in portrait. I suspect this is because it's so heavy that they couldn't add the rotat...
Summary: I have some eye site problems and I love this big monitor. It was "used" and discounted, but everything was included and it worked just great after I set it up. I had not trouble calibrating the color with Spyder.
Summary: I replaced these with the LG 29 inch. In my opinion the right choice.
Pros: Huge monitor, lots of screen space for multiple documents. My daughter is into Photoshop and she loves it. I game a lot mostly MMORPG games all great resolution. I bought 2 of these puppies. Highly recommended.
good for work, good for many types of games, mediocre for FPS

Summary: i bought this panel for a center display for work. it's a great panel for software development. i paired it with two 2007FPs in portrait mode. the vertical dimensions are very close, and the vertical resolution is the same. total resolution is 4960x1600. one could do with less, honestly.
Pros: huge, lots of real estate, bright, nice color, good support, quality panel, 16:10
Cons: not a great choice for FPS gaming, slight ghosting, needs vsync turned on at a non-trivial performance cost, expensive to build a machine that can drive it at full resolution at high settings.
Summary: I was fortunate enough to get mine when they were on sale for 31% off regular price. I'm pretty tight with a dollar, and dropping sixteen c-notes was the limiting factor the prevented me from purchasing in the past. Infrequently it drops in price to $1099.
Pros: The overall experience of using this monitor is something to be experienced to be believed. It is simply outstanding to have this much real-estate with which to work on a day-in/day-out basis. I purchased mine after discovering how well my MacBook Air 2011 drove the same model monitor at work. Wh...
Cons: It gets a little warm, but with the number of pixels being served up by this beast, I'm honestly not surprised.
Pros: After my Dell 3007WFP had died I purchased the U3011 as it's replacement and I must say that I didn't think that the quality could have possibly gotten any better but the clarity on the U3011 is amazing. It has no stuck or dead pixels (thankfully!) and works great for gaming as there is no ghosting.
