Nice find. I think you may get 5% Quidco too.:thumbsup:

A friend has the 23" version with 1080 native resolution and its a really nice piece of kit. Looks sweet and has cracking picture quality.
#2
set one of these up the other day - nice bit of kit, but if you get OCD about fingerprints do not buy it, litterally every surface is a shiny black print magnet...
#3
Had one of these for quite a while now.. Amazing screen quality, with all the connectivity that you could dream of.
Super high resolution (which may not be good for gaming, as you really want to run AT this resolution so will stretch your processor / gfx on games like crysis.)

Good find, hot price.. heat & rep added

Thats strange. I didn't think it was showing that earlier when I looked at it.
#9
Only thing that would put me off this one is the peculiar native resolution. Would buy if I had a PC that could handle it.
#10
I found this, see what you all think:

'We combined our test of this screen with a look at Dell's ordering process and it's here that we found our biggest annoyance. The screen has no built-in speakers, which is fine, but on the order page for the 2309, Dell pushes a soundbar that attaches to the bottom. What it doesn't make clear is that you need to order a soundbar that has a power pack with it.

Many Dell monitors allow you to plug the soundbar directly into the sound power port built into the screen itself, but not this one, and apparently Dell won't sell you the power adapter separately. Thus, while the soundbar fits very easily to the underside of the screen, without the power to run it we couldn't test how well it actually performs.'

That's a different monitor - S2309W vs SP2309W

The resolution is lower, 1920x1080 (although personally I might prefer that!)
#13
Pity it isn't IPS-based... I need a new monitor for Photoshop and non-IPS screens just don't display the colour accurately enough for my liking :(
#14
Great price, nice monitor. Been this price for a couple of weeks. Would like to go for it but only one problem stops me. Some people have complained about the buzz noise after an hour or so of operation. Anyone else had this problem too? Feedback appreciated, Thanks.

I've had this monitor for about 3 months now, and haven't experienced any buzzing noise at all. It's a very nice monitor, the high resolution is unusual and results in very small text, but the amount of space on the desktop is great.

I managed to snap one of these up - they may appear again.

I found this, see what you all think
I know it's slightly less convenient but I'd always go for separate speakers as the ones with LCD monitors are generally severely compromised due to the minimal cone area and cabinet volume... unless Dell Soundbars are miraculously better in this respect!
#18
Nice find, kinda had my eye out for one of these, but shame have to call Dell :( No Quidco/Topcashback......
#19
By the way if you put SP2309W in the search box on the dell site it comes out in the search results with an "Add to Basket" button, so you can order online with quidco cashback :) I just did that, all is ok, I'm waiting for the payment confirmation, fingers crossed the monitor will arrive in less than 3 weeks.
#20
Had mine on order for over a week now and the estimated delivery date is 11/12/09.
#21
guys and girls this is an excellent monitor and it is worth the money, beats any standard HD monitor and probably beats the top end range too.

But can i just say that you all should be haggling for a price drop to £150. Phone them or use online chat and try it. This in january was £170 and they keep upping and downing the price. I went for a computer deal and clinched this screen for a value none of you would believe oh and with 3 year warranty.

I also confirm that haggling is now officially looked upon by highstreet shops as good business.

(ps. i got my monitor in january... no buzzing noise :S, although im not using the sound bar in my monitor, dont need it as I have connected a HiFi to my computer, also with Windows 7 you can change the font size of words to medium if words look tiny with the click of a button and Resolution can still be maximum quality (this was a big problem with Vista because to change the font size of words required resolution modification)

Request HDMI cable and they might give it to you if you make them believe you dont have a DVI or VGA port (these cables come inside).
#22
had mine just over a week. fantastic and no buzzing.
#23
Can only add my agreement that this is a super monitor, I got mine by buyinga Dell PC via the business website, cracking deal!

That and the horrible colour shift!
#25
Might pick one up, can anyone tell me what an xbox360 picture looks like running on it over HDMI?
#26
Had mine last week. No problems. Fantastic monitor. It quoted delivery date 5 weeks away but received it in a week's time. No quidco tracking yet says can take upto 30 days.
#27
I returned a 21.5", 1080 monitor today because of the 0.248 dot pitch - same as this Dell. At native resolution, this dot pitch results in miniscule text. You can try and compensate for it in XP by increasing the DPI setting altering system font sizes and so on, but this does not work perfectly. Windows doesn't do good scalability. If you are used to something closer to the "standard" 0.28 dot pitch, I would consider carefully before proceeding...

I think a monitor that size of that DPI is ideal. If the text is too small try specsavers :thumbsup: A big screen is supposed to mean more desktop real-estate, not having everything bigger on the screen.

The higher density of pixels causes text to shrink, and there are no reliable methods of dealing with it at present. Do you understand what I am saying?

I agree with you. High resolutions are great but there is a limit.

I read a comment somewhere recently that altering font sizes in Windows 7 works better than in XP and Vista. Not sure if this is correct but you may want to investigate.

I don't see what the problem is here. I can alter the zoom / scaling on all applications I have. desktop icons/text can be enlarged and I haven't come across any system text anywhere that I can't read. I suppose if your eyes aren't A1 and you are a fair distance from it then some explorer file views (detail) could be tiny but I think they seem fine to me and I'm no teenager! The compensation of having so much on screen (two applications side by side with room to spare) more than compensates for any small text in my view. It also adds a degree of sharpeness that a standard HD monitor doesn't have at close range.

I think we all understand what you're saying but that returning the monitor because the resolution is too great is not the answer - it's a bit like throwing the baby out with the bath water. Your operating system should be able to give you the font sizes you require; if not, get another operating system. People other than you with better near-sight might use your computer, and appreciate that higher resolution.
#33
did any of you read my comment previously.

WINDOWS 7 deals with this font size concern without altering your resolution 2048x1142. It gives you the option to change your desktop font ratio by choosing between small, medium, and large. Only the desktop icon and font size is altered and it keeps the DPI the same!

Whoever decided to return their monitor because of the resolution really needs to start learning how to use an Operating System effectively.
#34
Who needs Windows 7? Haven't all OSs been able to do this for decades?
#35
David you are correct that W7 is slightly better with fonts, but unfortunately scaling cannot be relied on in any version of MS Windows. The problem is many applications are not zoom-able, or are not DPI aware, and even many windows elements are not programmed to scale properly. DPI Virtualization is one fudge that is used which to magnify application graphics through interpolation, but this consumes CPU cycles and results in blur. Also it was only introduced in Vista, so it's not even available to us XP users.

Basically you either need to be prepared to accepts these quirks (and tiny text on XP with non DPI aware apps), or pick a monitor that you can use comfortably at 96dpi in the native resolution. Scaling is a compromise, and an afterthought for many programmers.

I am offering this information for prospective purchasers so they may avoid disappointment. Many people are buying high DPI screens unaware of these issues, then downgrading to non-native resolutions out of frustration.

From microsoft (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd464660%28VS.85%29.aspx#common_high_dpi_issues) :

"Common High-DPI Issues

Applications that do not check the system DPI setting and do not adjust for the larger font and UI sizes can raise various classes of issues. This section describes the most common categories of issues and shows examples that illustrate them. The categories of high-DPI issues include:

* Clipped UI elements or text
* Incorrect font size
* Incorrect layout
* Blurred UI elements
* Pixelated text and bitmaps
* Misalignment of coordinate space affecting input
* Partial rendering of a full-screen application
* Incorrect use of effective resolution"
