There was no factory calibration on this model, something which should not be under-estimated on the modern U-series screens. This post was created in partnership with The Wirecutter, a list of the best technology to buy. The Dell WFP was tested using the chase test in PixPerAn, a good bit of software for trying to quantify differences in real terms responsiveness between monitors. However, when purchasing the Display on Dell’s site, there is no option to include one. I’ve wanted one ever since he purchased his 30 inch monitor about 3 years ago.

I wanted to see how much variance there 3008wf; in the screens contrast as we adjusted the monitor setting for brightness.

Perfect for those who need high resolutions.

30008wfp The luminance uniformity of the panel was not perfect, but not too severe as well, and contrast ratio was fairly good. Colours felt very dull and much less vivid than before. This shows the type of responsiveness that is possible from a modern display. Thankfully this mode did emulate a smaller colour space, more closely matching the sRGB reference than using the full native gamut of the screen.

As a side note, the screen does feature a dynamic contrast ratio control if you want to use it. There are a number of menu options that control the transparency of the menu to how long it stays on screen.


The mobile world might finally get exciting again in This utilises response time compensation RTC to boost the response fell across grey to grey transitions and the manufacturer quotes the minimum response time for the panel to be 5ms G2G.

Don’t show this again. It would have been useful if the OSD adjustments for brightness were saved individually for each preset mode as well I think. The newer U-series screens reduced the colour space through this emulation mode quite well, and in fact also came with factory calibrated adjustments in the Adobe RGB and sRGB preset modes for accurate gamma and colours.

I carried out the same process in the Adobe RGB preset mode. Not as good as some of the other models we have tested using IPS technology.

This feature is at least useable on the WFP for those who like the technology. Having said that, good results were possible with a colorimeter calibration in the other modes at least.

If you can get a good deal, and are able to calibrate the display to an adequate standard, this could be a good choice in the 30″ sector.

Curved monitors are now a thing. Dell has since included this option. The CIE diagram confirms the screen is extended gamut as we know from the specs, with the triangle representing the screen stretching a long way beyond the reference sRGB space orange triangle. This Dell monitor features Design and form factor. We’ve already had a look at the feature which 3008fwp to work quite well on the WFP. Its uniformity — top to bottom, left to right — is excellent, as are its viewable angles.


Dell WFP review: Dell WFP – CNET

We recorded the screens luminance and black depth at various OSD brightness settings, and calculated the contrast ratio from there.

Other than the base, the rest of the stand is also unlike that used on other Dell screens we have tested.

While we prefer the ruggedness of the old WFP’s height adjustment, the new mechanism works just fine, as well as offering the required tilt and swivel control.

The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended. Its black level was dark and didn’t suffer from 3008wcp paleness or hints of grey.

Still, it amounts to a great collection of ports than the reigning inch connection options king, the Gateway XHD
