January 15, 2006 At long last, there’s a competitor to Apple’s 30-inch Cinema HD Display – Dell released its Widescreen UltraSharp 3007WFP flat-panel LCD monitor at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month, effectively lowering the price of one of these delectable, productivity-enhancing beasties from US$2499 to US$2199. Both screens require a dual link DVI video card to drive them, and neither of them are all that cheap, but consider the Return On Investment offered by a larger screen – Apple’s research shows productivity is linked to the amount of screen real-estate while Microsoft’s research shows that two screens offer more productivity than one screen, so why not supercharge your productivity with two of these screens. It's a simple business decision - paying US$2500 for a permanent 10% productivity increase or US$5000 for better than 20% is a no brainer for any professional who spends more than a few hours a day in front of a workstation.

The Dell Widescreen UltraSharp 3007WFP flat-panel LCD monitor offers 2,560 x 1,600 (WQXGA) resolutionmaking it ideal for running multiple applications simultaneously, video and photo editing as well as for high-resolution 3-D modeling, pre-press editing, CAD design and visualization etcetera with a typical 11-millisecond response time.

The 3007WFP has as a height-adjustable stand with tilt and swivel capabilities and an integrated 9-in-2 media card reader and four USB 2.0 ports for connecting devices such as digital cameras and printers.
