    Is it just me, or does that look like a Hazro?

    Either somebody at the company for some inexplicable reason decided to stretch the image of the monitor for their teaser graphic, or the DS 30" is roughly a 2:1 ratio monitor, not a 16:10! Ok guys, we get it--it's a widescreen. No need to exaggerate.

    I don't think it's stretched enough :p. I can't feel the wideness or the impact of it being wide, lol.

    I'm really interested in the price though. I've heard good things about Doublesight and a 30" might fit the bill for me.

    Is this monitor worth waiting for? Or if you could get your hands on a Dell 3007-HC, would that be the better option?

    decisions, decision

    Hmmm, this is true. Well as long as the panel sports the NEC 3090, it may indeed be worth it...Especially if you dont have to pay that price premium.

    However, as GlimmerMan says, still many unknowns, we'll hopefully just have to wait for 9/2

    Assuming it's the Hazro HZ30W re-branded, it would only have a dual-link DVI input.

    will this thing have the anti-glare coating that causes "glittery dirt" on the screen? my Dell 3008WFP does this, and it is horrible. it's a show stopper for me.

    if you're not gaming, then you just want something that supports the native res. if you want to game at 2560, then you want top tier stuff.

    The DS-305W is now listed on their store at $1199. Still out of stock though. Also, the panel description avoids telling us what kind of panel it is.

    It's an LG-IPS panel. But only a single DVI input? nothing else? No thanks.

    I'll second that emotion.

    Dood... Seriously... Does anyone know for sure that this screen will only have 1 input??? If it does Im just gonna get the LP3065 And be done with it.

    If you look at their website, you'll see it has one VGA, one DVI, 1 4-port USB hub. That's it. It uses the LG IPS panel (I believe, based on another thread, it's H-IPS) and it's half the price of the NEC. Count me in.

    Okay, I don't know that it's a H-IPS monitor. The post said LG-IPS, which doesn't say. The 265W is H-IPS but I dont' know about this monitor. My bad.

    Interestingly, the Doublesight e-store appears to indicate that this is in-stock now.

    This monitor is in stock at Newegg now for $1,080, shipped.

    If I had any money -- which I do not -- this would be mighty tempting.
