    Over a year ago, Apple unleashed its flagship 30-inch Cinema Display, the largest LCD panel it had ever launched. A year later, Dell launched its own 30-inch display, the 3007WFP. With its new display, Dell also introduced a much sleeker and more refined form for its LCD display. Dell's 3007WFP was $400 cheaper than Apple's display and was technically superior to Apple's 30-inch Cinema Display. Dell's 3007WFP however, was noted to suffer from a bad case of backlight uniformity. According to many 3007WFP reviews, 40% of the right side of the display was significantly brighter than the left side of the screen. Now Dell has a new revision of its 3007WFP, called A01. The severe hotspots that were noticeable on A00 units are now gone with the A01 unit.
    • 3007WFP A00 - Backlight uniformity problem
    • 3007WFP A01 - Backlight uniformity excellent

    A year ago I bought a 2005fpw for $690 on Ebay and it got lost on the mail(thanks God I insured it). With the money USPS gave me back I bought it again for $540, but the revised version. All the Dell's LCD's vace that problem at first. That's what I call luck.



    And no. Dell Don't replace them.
