Dell’s 3008WFP Widescreen LCD Display Debuts @ CES


I'm a bit late on this, so you've probably already seen it in places like Gizmodo or HotHardware, but Dell's 3008WFP 30" widescreen is available for order, at a starting price of $1999. So, what's the big deal? Peformance and connectivity. It's our second first monitor that features DisplayPort technology. Besides that, it also features HDMI, DVI, VGA, component, S-Video and composite video, plus it also has stereo audio and subwoofer output ports.

This picture from the 3008WFP product page on shows the ports pretty clearly:

Besides connectivity, it's pretty solid on the feature list: 2560 x 1600 native resolution, Dell TrueColor technology (it's our first panel to reproduce more than 100% of the NTSC color gamut), an 8ms response time, and a 3000:1 contrast ratio. From a design perspective, it features a brushed aluminum housing, a glass base stand, and a Dell-patented cantilever arm that provides great flexibility in terms of height adjustability, swivel and tilt.

Here's a vlog that features Bruce Montag,who is one of our key technologists working on DisplayPort. He gives you an inside look at the technology and also gives a good overview of the 3008WFP display as well.
