Dell 3008WFP in US
Dell tonight hushed speculation and released the 3008WFP, its new flagship. Already available in Japan, the display is only the second ever beyond Dell's own Crystal to optionally pipe video through a DisplayPort connector, enabling higher resolutions than single-link DVI as well as other features. It also stands as Dell's most color-accurate screen and reproduces 100 percent of the NTSC color gamut at a 3,000:1 contrast ratio.
Images are clean thanks to an updated image processor, Dell says. Input is broad with the option of using HDMI or HDCP-encrypted DVI for digital signals as well as VGA, component, S-video, and RCA; expansion keeps in step with a four-port USB hub and a 9-in-2 card reader. The Texas-based PC builder lists the 3008WFP as available today for $1,999.
