Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP
- Easily accessible USB and CF slots
- Slightly dark and muted shades in photos
With a $2899 price tag, the 3007WFP is certainly not cheap, though it does cost in the same range as other 30-inch LCDs. But if you're looking for a big display on which to spread out a few open windows, then the 3007WFP could be a good investment.

Dell's UltraSharp 3007WFP turned in strong scores in the text portion of our image quality tests: true to the monitor's name, text in a Microsoft Word document was indeed sharp, and text in a screen of multi-sized fonts was crisp and easy to read, even at small font sizes.
The Dell didn't perform quite as well as the other displays when rendering colour, though it did represent colours nicely overall. While colours in a screen of a Web site looked bright and accurate, some photos appeared slightly dark, with muted shades. The effect was not really distracting--just enough to be barely visible.
The 3007WFP has easily accessible media slots and USB ports--a four-in-one media card reader, a separate CF slot, and two USB ports reside on the left side of the display. Two more USB ports are situated on the back.
The only controls the 3007WFP includes are those for brightness--touch-sensitive buttons on the front let you turn brightness up or down. It lacks other controls because there are no on-screen components to support the display's high resolution of 2560 by 1600. Dell says that future versions of the display will include an OSD.
The 3007WFP has a smooth black bezel and a V-shaped silver stand. It tilts and swivels smoothly, though it does not pivot. It is height-adjustable and wall-mountable.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
