yeah as someone else asked is there a 24 inch version? I was looking at getting the 2405fpw but I want a monitor thats HDCP compatible.

also dodnt the 2405fpw have a higher brightness and contrast ratio (500cd/m2 and 1000:1 respectively). I think I'll needa see the specs of the 24inch version of this. 30 is to big for me but I hope those specs havent gone backwards on us. and if they can manage 16ms on a 30 inch display maybe they can pull 8ms on the smaller units. who knows. I'm also glad I waited but.

Everything is perfect except for one thing, the resolution! If this 30" has 1920x1200 resolution that would be perfect!

1920x1200 would most likely look absolutly terrible on this monitor. If you want to run at that resolution you may as well get the 24inch one.

Argh, now I have to return my 2005fpw (which I was returning anyways for a dead pixel), and buy the 2007fpw when it comes out :(. And getting a new monitor would have been so exciting.

You mean the 2405FP. You'd also need dual-link DVI support, which is only available on NVIDIA Quadro cards for example.

This isnt true, ATI's new x1800 has two dual-link DVI outputs, and even the x1600 (wherever it is) and the cheapo x1300 have a single dual-link DVI output.

in this day and age you are going to regret everything you buy after you buy it because something better always comes out. But just think, how many [people do you know that has a 24 inch wide screen LCD computer monitor?

I do have a Dell 2405FPW. I don't think it'll look worse. Just look at 17 and 19" monitors. They have the same resolution! Some 40" plasmas have 1024x768 resolution and it doesn't look ugly either!

I'm sure it's doable and 1920x1200 is pretty demanding from existing videocards. Just imagine what WQXGA will demand from current videocards?

Yeah, but 17" and 19" monitors have the same number of pixels. This 30" has a lot more than the 24" 2405FP. It will have to emulate that res, which will make it look interpolated and messy. It's like running a 2001FP at 1280x960 or 1024x768 rather than 1600x1200.

What is HDCP

What is HDCP

Its complete bullcrap.

Short for high-bandwidth digital-content protection, a specification developed by Intel for protecting digital entertainment content that uses the DVI interface. HDCP encrypts the transmission of digital content between the video source, or transmitter -- such as a computer, DVD player or set-top box -- and the digital display, or receiver -- such as a monitor, television or projector. HDCP is not designed to prevent copying or recording of digital content but to protect the integrity of content as it is being transmitted.

Implementation of HDCP requires a license obtainable from the Digital Content Protection, LLC, which then issues a set of unique secret device keys to all authorized devices. During authentication, the receiver will only accept content once it demonstrates knowledge of the keys. Furthermore, to prevent eavesdropping and stealing of the data, the transmitter and receiver will generate a shared secret value that is consistently checked throughout the transmission. Once authentication is established, the transmitter encrypts the data and sends it to the receiver for decryption.

I wanna know the price :(

HDCP sucks but I wont get a monitor without it. Not that I support it, actually the opposite, but I dont wana get stuck with a monitor I cant watch certain media on. I'll also be happy with a 24 inch model

Since the 30" Apple Cinema Display is now $2499 (just a year ago it was $3299) I predict a price of between $1499 and $1699 with coupons. The Nvidia 6800 Ultra in my G5 Powermac can run dual 30" Cinema Displays. I guess you'll need the 7800GTX video card to run the new Dell 30" display.

I might get the 24" monitor if the price drops a good bit.
