When can I get a cheap and cheerful 30" TN+ Film Display?

Tim used a 9600GT with both this and another 26" display, and got about 60 FPS on TF2

That is a very nice monitor. Shame about the price though. Oh well, I have to wait for my 19" to die before I can upgrade to a 22" ws or larger :(.

Hi Tim,

this time monitor is from professional ones. And I still thinking that paragraphs' - "Objective Image Quality Analysis" header just do not deserve word - "Objective". Human eyes subjective, hardware not (DeltaE measurments pre after calibration). I missing these things. I just can't go with this review to my boss and take responsibility for my companys' spent money. Maybe my thoughts wasnt right around £ 150 value thing (ViewSonic VX1940w review).. But in this case.......... :)

I'm personally using MultiSync® LCD2090UXi and X-Rites' "Eye One Proof" bundle for DTP color management things at my work, and this review can't argue me to upgrade. I need more detailed things...

cheers :)

it's undoubtedly a boon for any IT department looking to roll LCD3090s out across their business.

just quoting that in hopes that my boss reads it *subtle hint, buy me two of them k thx bye*

Monitors of that size sure are tempting, if only they would drop in price a bit faster.

I hear your point - I did remember your constructive criticisms before and I was expecting your comment. :)

Having said that, I did want to test the self-calibration out and also measure DeltaE, but sadly no calibrator was supplied with the display for review (that's normally what happens with monitors like this, but it strangely didn't happen this time). I'm not sure why, because I'm not the only one that's had this problem either... I'll see if I can borrow one from somewhere for a few days.

Right on the mark of my forum post about monitors :)

Anyway: Is it me not understanding the images in the delay section or did you misinterpret them? I thought the clock was counting up in seconds? In such case the Dell is around .025 faster in all shots but the fourth. ?

Man you guys in the bit offices need to invest in some nice new keyboards :P

ITS HUGE.

It seems very deep and 'bulky'.

I wouldn't say no though!

£1,500 on a monitor and then another £350 on the vid hardware to run it. The spending power of some enthusiasts never fails to amaze me.

nice screen though, certainly wouldn't turn a free one down!

Sorry, that's my mistake and you're right - I must've had a massive brain fart when I wrote that portion of the review; that's my only explanation (I had been playing around with the OCZ NIA at the same time... so maybe that was responsible :o ). The counter is counting upwards so yes the Dell is actually slightly faster by around two hundredths of a second. However, the delay wasn't noticeable in the several hours (each) of gaming and video watching I did on the screen - the Dell is, like I say, generally considered to be as lag-free as they come.
OleJ 26th June 2008, 23:31 Quote
Video watching is naturally not influenced by the IO lag in the display except perhaps for audio being slightly out of sync for the super-naturally acute ;)

Gaming wise though I'd be a bit more wary as 2/100 of a second is 20ms and most gamers cry if the g2g (gray to gray) is above 10ms.
The 25ms+ IO lag (on top of the Dells lag) would deter any lag obsessive gamer from the monitor.

To put it by the numbers this is NOT a gaming monitor. But again you wouldn't buy this for gaming unless you had too much money and didn't care about refresh rates.
I would reckon that the monitors 12-bit LUT (lookup table) might be causing this since color and image correctness is weighted above refresh rates on this monitor.

For $2k I'd Rather have the widescreen Wacom Cintiq20WSX. That's just me though as I'm a graphic artist. Sure it might be 10" smaller, but working directly on the screen is worth 10."

Peace

id love something like that but, cant help think that 30 would be a little overwhelming size wize especially in portrait

well, its certainly not a monitor for those playing ut or quake, but for sc2 it would be perfect (it might even drop in price a bit until thats out:D).

My 24" is great for Medieval II.. but a 30" would always be welcome.

For a RTT/Strategy game like that, bigger is always better.

Shame about the price. Has anyone heard anything about this DAEWOO 30" for half the price:

Sorry, edited as link no longer valid.

Other markets can also get the 24" NEC IPS display . . . and in case of USA at a very good price.

Whilst the 30 is very sweet, I would love to see the NEC 2490 WUXi in the UK, and for only £450, as per USA. I'd buy it immediately.

Took me three months of reading to choose the 3090WQXi over other 30" LCDs. Got it yesterday. 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, feel free to call me to ask questions. HolophrasticEnterprises.com/NEC_LCD3090WQXi

That sounds to me like it's not capable of being driven by one socket/cable from even the most midrange of modern graphics cards?

That's a new one on me. :|

for resolutions higher than 1,920 x 1,200, you need a dual-link connection because there isn't enough bandwidth in single-link DVI. It's still a single cable that just carries a pair of DVI links down the one cable/connector (and thus double the bandwidth) and all modern graphics cards support at least one dual-link DVI connector.

Hi Tim

Bear with me on this one: So, a single DVI socket in my graphics card would use a splitter cable to plug into the monitor (I can't afford such a monitor at the moment, but I recently got a Gainward 8800GT - Dual DVI ){My 7600GS was DVI/VGA}.

Can this monitor play 1080p HD resolution?
