>> Eric Franklin: Hi everyone this is Eric Franklin from CNET.com and today we're taking a first look at the HPLP 3065. The HP has a huge 30 inch SIPS panel. IPS panels usually have great viewing angles and as you can see the LP3065 is no different. There's a groove in the back of the panel for carrying the monitor and the very wide foot stand keeps wobbling to a minimum even with the panels height at its maximum. The panel swivels 70 degrees left and right and tilts back about 25 degrees. Also the panel can be unscrewed from the stand and then [inaudible] visa style on the wall. The monitor doesn't include a pivoting feature for portrait mode however. HP includes 3 DVI ports as a sole video connection options. There is no HDMI connection but hopefully HP will consider including this in their next 30 inch model as come on this is a 30 inch monitor it would be nice to fully take advantage of this large screen. There's no onscreen display or OSD included in LP3065. The only video adjustment option provided by HP is the brightness control. The monitors 16x10 aspect ratio has a 2560x1600 resolution and scored excellently in nearly all of our color and uniformity tests. In particular the LP3065 showed no signs of compression at the dark and light ends of the color scales test. Movies on the HP look great thanks to displays deep blacks but its contrast wasn't quite as good as the best we've seen. Games look good running at 2560x1600 and showed no signs of ghosting or input lag. Vibrant and deep color along with a high brightness gave the games an eye poppingly pleasing look and there's really nothing like gaming at 2560x1600. In our power consumption test the HPLP3065 would cost you about $41 per year to run compared with the Gateway HD1600 extreme $60 per year and a Samsung 305Ts $39 per year. The most appealing selling point of the HP LP3065 is its super high 2560x1600 resolution. Gamers with powerful enough video cards to run at that resolution would not be disappointed. Professional graphic artists will have to make peace with the monitor's severe lack of adjustment options however. Everyone else will have to make peace with its price. At $1300 buyers should ask themselves is what I want to do worth such a high price? If you look past the price and don't require many video adjustment options you'll have one of the best performing monitors money can buy. Once again this is Eric Franklin it's been a first look at the HPLP3065. ^M00:02:47 [ Music ]
