When we wrote about HP's new 30-inch monitor, you all wrote in asking how it stacks up next to Dell's Ultrasharp 3000WFP (Wide F'n Panel) and Apple's Cinema Display. On paper, here's how they match up, stat for stat...

Resolution: The same for all three, at 2,560 x 1,600 pixels.

Contrast: The HP wins with a 1000:1 ratio, vs the 700:1 found in the Dell and Apple

Brightness: It's dimmer at 300 nits, vs 400 for the Dell and Apple

Viewing Angle: 178-ish degrees for all

Response: The HP is fast, at 8ms vs 14ms for Apple and 11ms for Dell

Of course, we'll have to wait for a showdown before we can pass fair judgement on the HP. But it looks like we have a decent catfight coming up.
