New Dell 30 inch monitor to have DisplayPort, HDMI

New Dell 30 inch monitor to have DisplayPort, HDMI

D-Sub, component, DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D, S-Video - could you ask for any more different types of inputs?

Dell is looking to capture the hearts and minds of the display market again with its next 30 inch screen offering. The 3008WFP, which is the successor to the 3007WFP/WFP-HC, will come just about any input connection that you could possibly want on it.

The new monitor will sport HDMI, DisplayPort, D-SUB, component, S-Video, and DVI-D inputs - that's six connection types for those not counting.

The 3008WFP is looking to be one of the first monitors on the market to have a DisplayPort input connection type. Back in July, Samsung was the first to announce support for the new connection.

Native resolution is set at 2560x1600 while the video processing chip will scale to all of the most commonly used resolutions.

Currently, there is no word yet on if any of the other specs have been bumped up for the latest beast from Dell but more input types should keep anyone happy who loved the 3007WFP.

Think you might wait for the 3008WFP to come out before your purchase a new monitor or do you have something else in mind? Leave your thoughts over in the forums.

Tasty. But I'm happy with my current 30" 3007WFP-HC. :D

Wow that is a lot of inputs. I wouldn't mind having one of these, though I'm interested in seeing how the video processing looks when scaling to lower resolutions.

The base looks pretty bland compared to that from the 3007, while i agree with nexxo, the 3007 is awesome anyway, but i agree with doug, i want:P

If I hadn't already invested in 2 TripleHead2Gos + 6 19" I'd be seriously tempted.

Glad I saw this I was about to buy the older model with the 400 bucks off offer to replace my 24 inch. But the ability to downscale the resolution (if it works) will be great for games that my graphics card can't handle at high detail settings....I'll wait for a review now

I have tested it and it works but it's not fully assembled yet - I'm hoping to do that this weekend. Watch the Room + Computer thread next week.
