    Hi all... Other than the Dell U3011 and HP ZR30W, are there any other 30 inch IPS monitors with a DisplayPort input? I'm trying to avoid using a miniDisplayPort to dual-link DVI adaptor...

    The Dell 3008WFP also has a display port input.

    BTW: All 30" screens have an IPS panel.

    NEC PA301w (and PA271w).

    I think all of the recent 27-30" panels have DP.

    Thanks all!

    Follow ups:
    Is the Dell 3008WFP still being sold? I thought it was discontinued.
    Is the NEC PA301W available for sale yet?

    the PA301w still isn't out...I thought it was, but obviously I was thinking about the 27. can't be long, though, since it's supposed to be out in 2010....

    I don't know, it seems you can still get it in some countries. The U3011 is the only 30" Dell display I could find on dell.com. It's the 3008WFP successor which has a bit better specs and nearly the same connectivity options as the 3008WFP (it does DP).

    Thanks all for the info so far!

    OK, I've read a lot of reviews and have decided to favor the HP ZR30W over the Dell U3011. I think I would prefer the NEC PA301W over both, but the cost is much higher. So I'm left choosing between the HP ZR30W and NEC PA271W. Any suggestions?

    I have the ZR30W and love it. I use a Spyder3 to profile it and use a miniDisplayport to Displayport cable to hook it to my MBP 15.
