    Does anyone have any experience with HP's new zr30w display? It's their new 30" monitor (2560x1600) and runs for $1299. I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on this, but I'm wondering if any fellow Mac users has any feedback on it. Thanks!

    Anandtech.com just did a review of it. Check it out.

    For me it would have just enough inputs (my Dell 3008WFP has way too many) but many would probably want at least another DVI or possibly HDMI.

    It doesn't have an OSD or scaler which means calibrating it is going to be more of a pain in the ass. In my experience calibrating colors via display settings instead of operating system settings gives better results. Due to the lack of a scaler the display won't work with consoles because it can only do 1280x800 and 2560x1600 resolutions (all resolutions are supported in Windows because you can set the graphics card to do the scaling but OSX has no such options).

    Compared to HP's previous model, the LP3065 it doesn't really offer much more.
