Dell UltraSharp U3011 monitor brings 30 inches of screen real estate

For years, computer maker Dell has made a name for itself for offering high-performance, reasonably priced computer monitors—and Dell still isn’t afraid to take on Apple in the high-quality display market: the company has just introduced its UltraSharp U3011 30-inch display, offering a native resolution of 2,560 by 1,600 pixels, in-plane switching (IPS) technology to reduce colors shifting with viewing angle, and a 1,000:1 contrast ratio.

Clearly aimed at graphics and video professionals—although we’re guessing there are more than a few gamers who will be interested—the U3011 sports 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, a 7ms response time, and 370cd/m&exp2; of brightness. The monitor also boasts a huge array of inputs, including two HDMI and DVI inputs, a DisplayPort input, VGA input, component connectors, and along with an integrated four-port USB 2.0 hub and a 7-in-1 media card reader. The U3011 also comes with a height-adjustable tilt-and-swivel stand and a security lock slot. The monitor is Energy Star 5 component, and consumes less than 2 watts in standby/sleep mode. However, it’s not exactly lightweight: the panel alone is over 20 pounds.

The UltraSharp U3011 monitor is available now with prices starting at $1,499—of course, Dell will be happy to throw in wall mounts and other accessories you might need.
