Still torn. Must order soon he only has a few 3008 left. What do you think guys, a "new" refurbed 3008 (people have been saying they're pretty much new, if not new) with a full 2yr Dell warranty, or a brand new u2711?

Both come in ~$850 after CashBack

Even though I can get the 30" 3008 for approx the same price, I think the U2711 is the better display. I'm having a really hard time deciding between the two.

Not even for 3d gaming, but for watching movies and stuff, since your so up close, it does make a difference.

I'd get the 2711 if it was me.

Blasting brown notes for 10 years and counting!

I just pulled the trigger on the u2711. After Bing CB and Ebay Bucks it came to ~$800 shipped. Not bad.

Now I'll probably have to upgrade my videocard. Hopefully the 295s will start to show up on eBay when the Fermi hits. Either that or I'll consider a 2GB 5870 (too bad I won't be able to crossfire). I just picked up a HDMI soundcard too- that could turn out to be a waste of money if I go ATI.

Got it today. A beautiful display overall. Even comes professionally calibrated with a calibration support to AdobeRGB/sRGB standards. Neat.

I'm spoiled by this display. I downloaded some new 1080p Quicktime trailers and they look kind of crappy now compared to my old Soyo 24" MVP panel. Wow. What a huge difference.

Ordered mine today, can't wait... I've read a lot of positive things about this monitor and finally pulled the trigger. Came across this video just before I placed my order
