The Dell U3011 is a 30 inch monitor. This system has been around for a while and there are many reviews online.
The biggest advantage of the 30 inch monitor is the resolution. The resolution can be:
- 2560 x 1600 via DisplayPort
- 2560 x 1600 via DVI
- 2048 x 1280 via VGA
- 1920 x 1200 via HDMI
DVI and VGA do not carry audio, DisplayPort and HDMI do. I have covered some of the audio aspects on the "X230T - External Monitor (2560 x 1600) Through DisplayPort" post.
The U3011 can display a lot of content on a single display, and that is the biggest advantage. The U30111 paired with my X230T is like having 3 monitors.
At over $1,100, this monitor is expensive. The massive 2560 x 1600 resolution is what you are really buying. If you check the prices on 25 or 27 inch monitors you will see a drastic price drop, but they usually have a resolution of 1920 x 1200.
Of course, you could buy 2 or 3 monitors and "group the resolutions" or keep their independent resolutions. This setup depends on whether your system supports it.

For a bigger "picture" you could just get a TV or projector. If you wanted the wideness of the Eyefinity you could do combined projection, although you may have to deal with a split line and different color profiles.

Note: sorry about the blurry pics, maybe the camera will be the next upgrade (at least for still images)
