Gateway announced today a new 30" LCD PC display, the XHD3000. Gateway unlike Dell and HP promotes the 1600p HD resolution. All 30-inch LCD displays for PC use share the same resolution of 2560 x 1600, so Gateway has nothing new to add here. Gateway has added a wealth of connectivity options over other LCD's, allowing for connection of up to six devices and the ability to upscale 1080p content from HD DVD or Blu-ray players to the 1600p resolution and an IR remote that controls up to six devices without line-of-sight. Connectivity options include HDMI with HDCP, VGA, DVI, two composite inputs, S-Video and six USB ports. The contrast ratio is 1000:1 and the screen brightness is 400 Cd/m2, and a 5 millisecond response time. The LCD is listed as available for purchase now at Gateway.com for $1,699.99.
