If a 22" or 24" LCD monitor doesn't provide enough screen real estate for you or you just want to go all out and find the best monitor without having a real budget, you'll more than likely end up looking at the 30" monitors that are available. There aren't many but Apple has a 30" Cinema Display and Dell also have a very popular 30" monitor, but there are also some from other manufacturers. In fact, today we are looking at the Samsung SyncMaster 305T, which is a 30" monitor with a native resolution of 2560 x 1600 and has a price tag of over $1200 USD.

The Samsung SyncMaster 305T had arrived in a slightly beaten up retail box, but fortunately nothing was damaged inside. The cardboard box is quite thick and on the inside are two Styrofoam molds that completely encase the 30" monitor. Then encasing the monitor itself is a foam bag. Included with the monitor was a USB 2.0 cable for the integrated hub, AC power cord, one DVI-D cable, and the user's manual with 305T CD. On the CD are the user manual and the Windows drivers. The monitor arrives preassembled to its base.
