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.
