Love these monitors - if I had the money I'd go for this!
#2
Good price for a huge monitor (a Hard Disk or a Monitor can never be too big)
#3
Don't forget Quidco, knocking £18-19 off.
#4
This looks a good buy - tried the 10% accessories discount voucher posted elsewhere, but it did not work. This is after all listed under accessories on the Dell web site so worth trying even if I did not expect it to go through.
#5
absolutely fantastic price
#6
Guys, you can get a connector to the enable your PC to link up with your 42" plasma / LCD.
Surely this is better than paying over the odds for a 27" monitor.
Why would you want a monitor that big anyway? Bear in mind that you literally sit a couple of feet away from a screen so anything bigger than a 20" is not good for the eyes
#7
This is an amazing monitor for the price! I have got a 24" from Dell and it's great.
#8
The usual argument is the screen resolution, but I suppose at 1920x1200, it's not that much difference from a full HD 1920x1080 big screen TV. Maybe the response time? Not sure how the new full HD TV response times compares with PC monitors.

I have the Dell 30" bought over the Christmas period that has the resolution of 2560x1600. :) It's a monster! Bigger is always better. ;)

...It really depends on what people want to do with it. I already have one of these and thanks to this offer just bought another, I do a lot of 3D Animation and Programming - these monitors are absolutely perfect! A 42" however would be horrible (too big with a slightly lower res on 1080p) for those tasks, Plus a 1080p 42" TV costs significantly more than this.

Voted hot! Paid around £550 for the other one.

PC monitors have always been 100X better than LCD TVs. The panels they use in monitors provide better contrast, response times, colour reproduction, etc. Also bear in mind this monitor is S-PVA panel compared a bog-standard PC monitor's TN panel... better everything especially viewing angles. The panel is similar to the one in a 2408 (http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_2408wfp.htm). Read here for more: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/panel_technologies.htm

To everyone who posts that this monitor is COLD... this is a high quality 27inch S-PVA panel... not a TN panel that they use in the majority of PC LCD monitors (such as those cheap 22inch samsungs). You don't get better than this (except the 30incher that dell and apple make).

Using a plasma or LCD TV as a monitor is really bad for your eyes. People with monitors this big do not sit as close to them as they would a 20".

This is not over the odds for a 27" monitor, unless you can find one of better value?

Thanks for posting this. Liked the blurb about colour accuracy but this review suggests it may need a fair bit of tweaking to calibrate it for photography:

Anyone know if you can fit the AS501 soundbar to the bottom of this monitor?
#15
I have it's baby brother (if you can call a 24" wide screen monitor baby ;)) the 2407WFP, and it's an absolutely amazing monitor. The Dell monitors are expensive, but they're about as good as you can get. I can't justify buying a 27" for no resolution gain, but this is a hot price. If I could get the 30" for close to this I'd be there in a shot.
#16
"27-inch WUXGA 1920 X 1200 Full-HD Step up to 30% more onscreen space than the Dell 20 monitor."

BTW, this info doesn't do it justice. It might be a 30% increase in diagonal, but if my sums are right its actually about an 82% increase in area or 'onscreen space'.
#17
Oh. My. Jesus. Look at the connections on this...

I too have a 2407WFP and am now seriously considering getting one of these 2709WFP to go side by side :thumbsup:

Why not use a 32 LCD HD TV as a monitor - won't this be better value for money?
#19
Seems a great price for a 27". Although i'm not sure that its worth double the price of my 1920x1200 24". It is great even with small text (it was the overclockers DGM 24"). The connections on the back are much better on the dell though if that is a priority for you.

Find me a 32" LCD with the same resolution (or even 1080p) for cheaper, then. Oh, and the same response time and contrast ratio.

Actually, having recently bought a 24" widescreen I find it's amazing how quickly you get used to the size. I'm actually finding it a bit small vertically in normal mode but in portrait mode it's a bit too tall so I reckon about 1500-1600 would be ideal. (a 30" is 1600 tall, but also so very expensive).

Well, I'd take the LG IPS panel over this personally, but there isn't a monitor of this quality using that 24" IPS that's availible in the UK.

Dell, HP, Samsung, NEC, Apple, Daewoo and Eizo all make 30"ers.

TNs aren't great but they're cheap and have a low power draw (my 24" TN draws about 40W, a 24" S-PVA like the Dell can draw 80W) so they do have their place. Unfortunately some manufacturers keep trying to use them in high quality screens (samsung T260 for example).

Yeah, it's wide gamut so you'd need a colour aware program and a calibration profile to get accurate colours.

They may be comparing it to the 4:3 20" which has a resolution of 1600x1200. So obviously this is the same vertically but with some extra room at the sides.

Can someone explain to me why the 27" monitor is more than £100 cheaper than the 24"!!! What's wrong with it! :)

On the Dell site the 2408WFP isn't on offer at the moment but this is - there's nothing "wrong" with it, IMO it's one of the best screens I've ever used.

You can actually buy the 2408WFP for £385 delivered from PCBuyIt.

Sometimes Dell doesn't have the best prices on their own site :thumbsup:

Sure, I understand that. I'm just trying to figure out why this 27" is, in that case, slightly more expensive than the 24". iIs there a new model coming out?
#26
I paid about the same for a DELL 24" and it is worth every penny. You will really appreciate working at 1920x1200 trust me and its great for watching TV/video/games as well.

The 2709W is a brand new model so this may be a special launch offer. The 2408WFP came out at the start of the year and is at the higher end of it's normal price range (dell monitor prices fluctuate a fair bit)

The other alternative is that dell may be being sensible. They are both 1920x1200 screens so you're not getting any extra desktop space and going for one over the other is a matter of personal preference - whether you prefer the 83dpi of the 27" (bigger text) or the 94dpi of the 24" (smaller pixels). In light of that it only makes sense to price them the same.
#28
That is some monitor - I'll be bearing this sucker in mind(didn't know it existed) when i go for my 2 year PC refresh next year. Voted hot.

I have the 24" Dell from about 2/3 years ago - that was a similar price from ebay and it has been an absolute cracker! This isn't just bigger it's a generation or three better......

Great screen...good find.
#29
It’s only £10 more delivered from PCBuyit but you get the advantage of Quidco at Dell.

im contemplating getting this or the 30" for the living room

its a viable option pricewise compared to a 32" tv with a decent spec

shame my 2407 doesnt have the hdmi for a HD sky+ box

The viewing angles aren't going to be that great compared to a proper TV, surely?

According to the Dell web site, 29th July.

Hi,its a S-PVA panel ie not TN.So expensive panel etc & for a good reason.Might not be the best for fanatic FPS gamers,but would sure do for me:-

I would rather buy this 26" Samsung Monitor with Full HD (1920 x 1200), 16.7M Colours, 10,000:1 Contrast Ratio, 5ms Response, 2 HDMI Ports, Component Input, Scart, VGA/DVI Ports, Optical Out, Intergrated Digital and Analogue Tuner and Built-in Speakers.

This beats this Dell deal hands down and iv'e just found it at Dixons for £411 here + 3 Years Warranty.
