The 30-inch widescreen 3008WFP is Dell’s new flagship monitor and the successor to the 3007WFP and 3007WFP-HC. Like its predecessors, the new 30-inch model also comes with a broad range of multimedia features which leaves nothing to be desired. These include two DVI-D inputs, a HDMI input and the futuristic Display-Port connection.

Other analogue video connections are also included. With its 30-inch (76 cm) screen diagonal, the Dell 3008WFP delivers an impressive image. This is enhanced by the monitor’s native resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels, which provides an enormous amount of space on the desktop.

Dell is advertising the 30-inch LCD monitor as having an extended colour space (TrueColor technology), which means that the model is also of interest for graphics workers. In our in-depth test, we will establish where the monitor’s strengths and weaknesses lie and whether the Dell 3008WFP can forge new paths in the dimension of all-rounder monitors.

We tested the monitor in PC mode using a Sapphire Radeon X1950 XTX and an XFX GeForce 8800GTX. We also used a Philips DVP5980 DVD player and a Sony PlayStation 3 for our tests.

Scope of supply

The Dell 3008WFP comes with a D-Sub cable (analogue), a Dual-Link-24+1-DVI-D cable (digital), a HDMI cable (digital), an Uplink USB cable, a power cable, a cleaning cloth, a CD and a manual.

The CD contains the INF monitor driver, an ICC colour profile and a detailed user guide in HTML format. All documentation is available in various languages.

Two digital cables (DVI-D and HDMI) and an analogue cable (D-Sub) are included for connecting the monitor with the PC. Video cables must be procured separately.
