Hi, i am quite unsure of which screen to get, either the dell 3007wfp-hc or the samsung sm 305t since my supplier only gets these 2 30" screens (ocuk). I am leaning towards the dell since its around 150 sterling cheaper and supports hd whereas the samsung doesnt, although im willing to spend more if the samsung is way better.
I dont really need hd much but i suppose it would be good especially for the near future, plus its always handy i suppose. Ive gone through a few forums and its said that the samsung has better image quality and is the better screen (also, i wont be calibrating the dell whereas the samsung comes ready calibrated).
All i do really is normal pc use (movies, browse the net bla bla..) and i only play wow so i guess my 8800gtx should manage that much.
Any help would be highly appreciated, especially if someone has seen them both first hand
While S-PVA panels are good for colors accuracy and blacks. They are generally outclassed by S-IPS panels (and their derivatives). The Dell 3007WFP uses a S-IPS panel and I would not hesitate to choose it over the Samsung.
I can't speak for the 30" but I purchased a Dell 24" about a month ago and the performance is great. Mostly I have been gaming and watching movies on it and the quality is fantastic. I used it uncalibrated for a while. Recently I adjusted the brightness down.
