Thats a fair question . I guess until ya get to try one we won't know .
I also wonder if they come with any other problems that you won't find out about until after
you bought one.

No.

Once it becomes too much, it magically turns itself into a high definition media hub.

I read a review of this monitor. The conclusion was that Dell's 24-incher represented a better deal and was more practical.

You're probably right. Even a 24" is pretty big to be sitting right in front of (I use a 21" LCD at home and find that can be quite large). I do prefer the widescreen aspect somewhat. I got nicely used to it when using an iMac G5 20" and the 4:3 ratio seems a bit less usable now. 2 x 20" widescreen LCDs from Dell are around 640, and the 30" is 1400. That's quite a price premium...

I now have a 26 inch NEC 2690WUXi as my main monitor, and I find it a nice size but honestly think now that a 27" or even larger would be better from the point of view of being able to really get two decently-sized windows side by side.

The issue I've read about with the large 30 inch panels such as the Samsung 305T is that the stand is too weak to hold the thing steady. I can understand this, since the NEC stand, too, allows the LCD to wobble easily if you touch it. It's not so unsteady that the monitor moves at all when you're typing, but the stand could be sturdier.

lol, I don't think that those that wrote the review saying that 30 inches was uneccessary meant for eveyone or do heavy photoshop work.
I use two 22s and would love to go to a 30. ....and probably one of my 22s I really like having all my toolbars on my second monitor, and having bridge open on it.
I think I can deal with getting a wall mount for a new monitor.

I just don't think Dell is happy with me right now.

I'm happy with my single two year old 24" Dell 2407WFP. I've been considering adding a second 24" monitor and found a nice Samsung HD monitor (don't remember the model) at Sam's Club with a HDMI port for my Blu-Ray. I watch movies on mine via the component connections right now since I don't have a TV. I'd love to boost the resolution to HD on the movies but can't justify the need for a second monitor.
