There are dozens of threads on this topic already, so a search is probably worthwhile.  That said, I think there are three to consider -- the Dell, the NEC and the Eizo.  The Dell and the NEC are half the price of the Eizo.  The NEC Spectraview comes with software and puck and gets a lot of good reviews -- and it's definitely the one you want to get, because the software is necessary to drive the LUT built into the monitor.  It's what I chose because it was a good compromise for price and performance (I could buy a pair of them for less than what a single Eizo would have cost me).  I am happy with it.

And yes, editing on a wide-gamut monitor does help with proof views when printing on a wide-gamut printer, but you will need to use proof view to edit! In fact, it's why I mentioned two 30" monitors earlier --- in an ideal workspace, I would have THREE monitors: 1 smaller one (I use an inexpensive ACER 24" 1080P) oriented vertically for menus off to the right, the main 30" editing monitor center, and then a matching 30" on the left to hold my reference image.  I don't have the second 30" yet, but I want it when I redo my studio. I guess that makes me a monitor slut, but so be it

You may want to wait for the next generation Eizo. maybe a couple moths to hit USA market. The new one is an IPC. Even if you decide not to buy it (price / performance been hard to justify) it may have an impact in the 301 from Eizo. It's dificult to see any impact on the Nec prices since Eizo 30s  have an almost outrageous price.
