The Samsung uses an S-PVA panel while the Dell 3007WFP uses an S-IPS.

I didn't notice any input lag but that doesn't mean it isn't there.

This isn't really true. DVI can support HDCP just fine. I don't care if it has HDMI or DisplayPort but the lack of HDCP on DVI is a deal breaker for me.

For instance, on the Dell 3007:

Quote:
Connector Type: DVI-D (dual link) with HDCP, white connector
Only DVI but it supports HDCP.

Seems decent, but if I'm spending $1200 on a monitor it better have HDMI!

Why? HDMI is useless on a monitor.

It's not useless if you want to play blu ray movies. No HDMI = no HDCP support = no blu ray. A 30 incher should have that standard.

That's false. Read my post above. DVI can support HDCP. HDMI is useless on a computer monitor.

Teriba I would LOVE to see a standalone Blu-ray player that doesn't need HDCP for 1080p. Can you please post a link to one or at least a model number?

I did not say that. Of course you need HDCP. I'm just saying that DVI can support HDCP just as well as HDMI can. HDMI and DVI are physical connectors, HDCP is a protection scheme. They are mutually exclusive. You could also run it to a monitor using a HDMI->DVI cable as well. I have no idea why you would do this and not just add a Blu-Ray drive to your PC as I have done.

P.S. I'm a pastafarian too.

Mike listed in the cons: "No HDMI or Display Port, Not HDCP compatible". Blu ray is going to have HDMI output, are saying this monitor is HDCP compatible and can run 1080p from a blu ray player?
