    If your GPU can keep up, and you don't need the other inputs - then its the 30 inch Dell all the way.

    It really depends on your intended use and space.

    I don't know about your country, but Dell USA tried to make me pay a 15% re-stocking fee one time on a monitor I did not want after a few days. Of course, with Dell, it all depends on who you get on the line.

    Have you called yet to see their policy for your country?

    I would say the Dell 30 since it's S-IPS with a tight .25 pixel pitch - and a reasonable price right now. The Westy looks like fun but its so big I would just get a TV in that size range. An non S-IPS with a 0.42 pixel pitch doesn't appeal to me up close. That said, I don't know that I trust the components on either of them as far as long life goes. Think Dell or Westinghouse is stocking these with high quality power supplies etc? Not that they use junk mind you.

    Dell is most certainly higher quality than Westinghouse. I worked at a Best Buy and saw a fair number of Westinghouse house products come back due to defect (TV's and Computer Monitors). This was far more than any other brand of monitor/tv we sold.

    The westinghouse is better for gaming on a budget. If you can afford dual 8800gtx then go dell...

    Honestly I prefer the Westinghouse's resolution to the dell's. I can sit 4ft back from the Westinghouse and use the computer normally, but I can't read the text on the high resolution of the 30"ers.

    I also like the fact that the Westinghouse is 16:9 and perfect for 1080p content/gaming.
