Gateway XHD3000 30-inch LCD  (Source: Gateway)
Dell and HP have competition in the 30" LCD territory

Gateway today announced a new LCD PC display today, the 30" XHD3000.

The Gateway XHD3000 promises some features that are not found on other 30-inch displays from Dell and HP. One of the features Gateway promotes on the XHD3000 is the 1600p HD resolution. All 30-inch LCD displays for PC use share the same resolution of 2560 x 1600, so Gateway has nothing new to add here.

However, what Gateway is adding with its new display is a wealth of connectivity options allowing for the connection of up to six devices and the ability to upscale 1080p content from HD DVD or Blu-ray players to the 1600p resolution and an IR remote that controls up to six devices in line-of-sight.

Gateway claims the XHD3000 sports a 5 millisecond response time, though nothing in product guidances suggests the new display uses a different panel than the one found in Dell's 30" desktop offerings.  Like most high-end 30" panels on the market today, the XHD3000 sports a Samsung S-PVA panel.

Connectivity options include HDMI with HDCP, analog VGA, DVI, composite video, S-Video, component YPrPb and six USB ports. The contrast ratio is 1000:1 and the screen brightness is 400 Cd/m2.

The Gateway XHD3000 LCD is listed as available for purchase now at Gateway.com for $1,699.99. Samsung is also anticipated to launch a 30" consumer display later this year.

According to the Samsung website they already have

http://www.samsung.com/ca/products/monitor/lcd_wid...

Samsung usualy doesn't put stuff on the website till it's fully available. However even if it isn't I would gladly wait to get a samsung T series display over anything made by gateway.

Personaly I think their T series 27 looks like the perfect choice.

1900 x 1200 is alot easier to try to support video card wise for gaming than 2560 x 1600, and 1900x1200 is still very high even for a 27 inch display. Much cheaper too, those 27 inch samsungs are $900 or less.

I was fairly certain the 305T was available for sale.
For that matter, I'm sure of it, a few of them have walked out the door (payed for obviously) at the retailer I happen to work at.

Bloody grand looking monitors. I'd love to see the gateway.

Samsung quality is not that good.

I have a SyancMaster 204B, after one year use a finger nail size green traingle appear on the upper-left corner. I think I have to RMA some day. But I'm sure the shipping is going to cost me.

And I have 2 Samsung DVD writers that will whine as loud whenever I put a CD or DVD in them.

I think I'll never buy a Samsung again.

They might be a good barnd, but they have Quallity Control issue.
