Great display for photography

Summary: This display has impressed me by its uniform, vivid colors, and excellent sharpness. The only caveat with the extended color gamut is that you will likely see colors in your images differently than others (clients, site visitors, etc). I use Photoshop's "proof colors" command for this. Also, it's very bright; I have the contrast set to around 70% but the brightness down to 1%! It's almost too bright for it's own good.
Pros: Extended color gamut, Fairly uniform color, Rotates to vertical
Summary: I do a ton of development and spend 80 hours a week in front of a pair of these running 2560x1600 dual SLI controllers. Monitor is great on the eyes :-) I used a pair of Gateway XHD1600 and thought they were the best monitors until 368 days after purchase they both bit the bullet the same week. I hope these new ones will last as long as my old NEC did and life will be grand. Old one has been running for over a decade 7x24x365.
Summary: With a resolution of 2560x1600 I can't even miss one pixel on my photos. Amazing brightness and contrast ratio, vivid colors and sharpness - exactly what I expect from my gear - are all in this 30" display. Pros: high resolution, great colors, sharp, quick response.
Summary: The monitor works right out of the box, without having to go through any laborious setup. It's big, it's beautiful, it's sharp, and the colors are spot on. I bought this monitor because I was tired of having poor color rendition in my images, which had begun to become a real problem in my work-flow as a photographer. Now, I am worry free. This monitor captures virtually 100% of the Adobe RGB 1998 color gamut, so now I know that what I see is what I get.
Summary: Took me three months of reading to choose the 3090WQXi over other 30" LCDs. Got it last week. Wow did I ever make the correct choice. It's just perfect, right down to changing the colour and intensity of the power light. It's so good, [...
Summary: H-IPS panel, 2560x1600, 12 but LUT that can be internally calibrated. What more could you want? This display doesn't sit in a very pretty case and has a lot of depth to it, but it's all business. No dead pixels or backlight bleeding issues. Just 30 inches of perfection...
Summary: Wanting a 30" monitor to replace two ageing 1600x1200 monitors with failing backlights, I initially chose the Dell U3011. This has lots of good points, but in my case at least, it had poor picture quality with obvious brightness and colour variations across the screen. I returned it, dug (very) deep into the piggy bank and went out on a limb with the NEC LCD3090WQXi.
Summary: I've had my 3090WQXi for nearly 2 years now and I can say in all honesty that it is the best piece of kit I've ever bought. I use it for trading and general purpose stuff. 'fabulous image and build quality. I recently decided to get a 2nd monitor and ordered the PA271WB - I wanted extra display space and I thought that a 2560 x 1440 with a slightly smaller footprint would do the job - but next to the 3090WQXi it looked quite pathetic (the image and build quality is not...
Summary: I knew I needed to get a new monitor to replace the previous Apple 30" LCD. The Apples have a lovely design finish and were one of the first 30" screens years ago. By today's standards they are not up to the standard of the professional colour editing displays such as Eizo and now also NEC. The main reason for this purchase was to get a display that could display a wider colour gamut than most other LCD displays.
