Hmm the U3011 is on-sale for $200 off. Basically covers the HST. Comes to $1594.71. Tempting somewhat, but I still can't decide. That's a lot of coin for a monitor.

I'm basically in the same boat.. itching for the u3011, but that is still some serious coin. U2711 is 800$ tx included online.

I can't believe someone would pay $1000+ for a 16:9 monitor.

I'd rather have a 16:9 display. Vertical resolution really isn't a problem @ 1440 lines.

Why? With 1600 you can still display 16:9 content and you don't loose ANY vertical space when gaming.

I don't want vertical resolution while gaming. In a properly coded game a 16:9 will have a greater FOV than a 16:10 display. The extra 160 vertical lines is only going to be ground or sky in FPS shooters anyways.

I'm in total agreement with Sky on this one, at least the 30" is still 2560x1600.

To each their own but I'm also in the 16:10 club, somehow the shorter screens make me feel like I'm missing out.

I don't have any experience with the U2711, but I can vouch for the U2410 being a nice panel. I picked one up in September from Dell.

Well I've passed up the U3011 for now....

But at least I know I can expect more sales to come shortly (hopefully Boxing day)
