    It appears that Dell has ceased sales of all Dell 3008WFP 30-inch LCD monitors, due to a small technical issue. The 30-inch beast is now removed from Dell's official web site, until a new version is available.

    It probably exploded into a giant napalm fireball, enveloping all in its path...

    Im sure thats what the person ShadowFold knew who got one wanted to hear :laugh:.

    But on topic Dell's monitors are some of the best, im curious as to what the problem is.

    Cheers

    How empathetic of you, Trip :D

    Mine seems to work fine, and I haven't seen any enveloping fireballs lately.
    I have one of the original ones, though, maybe the problem is with the new higher contrast one.

    I've been following this monitor very religiously and I'm sure it's got something to do with the massive input lag and light bleeds among other things...

    If Dell can fix the issues with this monitor it'll be the best 30 inch monitor *crosses fingers*

    Happy with my 20.1" Dell 2007"WFP..
    it's more than decent enough for what I want, 1680x1050 does me nicely :)
    might get a second to compliment it :D

    Honestly, 30" is too big. Just get a budget 24" and never lack again.

    Was the small technical issue that they simply weren't selling? What a weird announcement.

    Buy a dull, why (that's just more cash for them to keep screwing people over by selling shit comps)?

    Those are just sonys last time I checked. I think I'd rather buy a nice 1080P TV that's larger.
