I have wished for a long time that there was more competition in the 30-inch LCD market. I love gaming and working on a 30-inch screen but until now only Dell and Apple have had significant offerings on the market. HP has finally stepped into the high-resolution 30-inch LCD market.
The new HP ZR30w uses an S-IPS LCD with a resolution of 2560 x 1600. It has a dynamic contrast ratio of 3000:1 and a 16:10 aspect ratio. The screen has an 85% efficient power supply and the chassis of the monitor is made from at least 25% recycled resin.
The stand adjusts 6-ways for tilt, swivel, and height. Connectivity options include DisplayPort and DVI-D. The coolest part about the monitor is that it produces 10.7 billion colors rather than the 16.7 million that other 30-inch screens can show. That will make the HP screen much better for design pros and other users who want accurate colors. The screen is available now for $1,299.
