HP LP3065 30" Monitor

If you are looking for a monitor then look no further, this is definitely the one to get. I have had mine for two months now, bigger really is better.

The only problem is that it takes a lot of processing power to drive a four megapixel monitor. You will almost certainly need a new graphics card and quite likely a new computer. If you want more than one display you are going to need a beast.

At the moment there is no scaling chip that works with the 30" displays. What this means is that none of the 30" monitors on the market today can be driven at anything other than full resolution (or in the case of the Dell, a quarter of full resolution). If you select a different resolution in windows the scaling takes place in the video card. The upshot of this is that you cannot plug a laptop into these displays.
