ATTENTION: This offer has now expired. You can still get the monitor with a 5% discount using code P6DWMHXL6$TSVL (Thanks Noh) to get the monitor delivered for c.£205 and get a 10% Quidco/TCB on top, which would still be a great price

One of the best full HD monitors out in the market currently, with an IPS panel. Absolutely stunning colours but given that it has an 8ms response, may not be best for gaming (I personally don't use it for gaming so maybe someone who does can comment on how good or bad is it?) Oh and no HDMI if that is important

There is currently a 25% off on this and to get a further 10% off, use code RHTB8J1BR0JC4$

Also, don't forget Quidco/TCB

Specs are pretty decent

Indeed. Though I believe you have fewer rights should a problem arise.
#3
As they class it as a business transaction, they'll probably contend that you aren't covered by SOGA and DSR at a minimum.
Dell do seem to blur the line between business and consumer and it's arguable that they are actually aiming these prices at the general population.
#4
when it comes up and asks for your business name just enter 'for consumer use'.

Great price for an IPS screen though. Hot!

As usual we get the complete uninformed on here spouting complete nonsense.Read the reviews, here's one from one of the most respected monitor testing site on the web:

I look forward to Rimi coming back on here with his big spoon to eat some humble pie, yeah that'll be right!

FFS! I just bought one of these from Aria this week for £230 which was cheapest by far at the time.
I bought it because it has excellent colour accuracy for photo editing. Shame it's 16:9 though.

That's an excellent price. My next monitor will definitely be IPS (not a gamer) but I dont need it just yet, so will wait a while.....really like the HP ZR24W . This is HOT though.

Poor value. I'm sure you can get a 23" monitor for far cheaper than £194. You could actually buy a budget laptop for cheaper!

Oh yeah i sure you can get some generic branded 23" LCD monitor for far cheaper, which will look and perform as well as the money you plowed into it (bloody crap). Can you get a IPS panel for cheaper though? Seriously doubt it, especially a Dell which are one of the best monitor makers around.

Get all your facts straight before you babble on about something you obviously have no clue about.

Damn, even cheaper than it was in the previous sale/deal. Phenomenal price.

Here's a post I made on another forum explaining a few things about this monitor:

It's one of the better, if not best, (current) IPS monitors you can get if you look solely at the measurements (see the TFTCentral Review). By which I mean it has the lowest blacks, highest contrast ratio and very good colours out of the box. Coupled with decent overdrive and low input lag, it's a good gaming monitor too.

From my own tests and eyes, ghosting/trailing is there on the U2311H, but only in tests like PixPerAn.

In actual games (I've tried Left 4 Dead 2, Flatout 2, Mass Effect 2, Just Cause 2, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat, Civlization V, Saints Row 2, Fallout 3, Minecraft amongst others), I've not seen any haloing or ghost trails.

The only game I've come across where I've noticed a major difference from a CRT is Titan Quest - the screen moves at such a speed (i.e. constant slow-medium scrolling) where blurring is very noticeable. I doubt any TN, even 120Hz ones, will be any better in this scenario due to the scrolling speed.

Also my own input lag tests were very similar to what TFTCentral got, i.e. ranging from 0-30ms with an average of about 10ms - in actual games, I didn't notice any difference from a CRT. Low input lag is more important than response rate for gaming.

The viewing angles on it aren't quite up to par with more expensive IPS monitors as it uses an e-IPS panel, an "economy" version of sorts, however the vast majority of people will be sitting directly in front of the screen anyway so this really is a non-issue. You will see a slight dark bar (contrast shift) go across the screen at acute angles (i.e. if you look at the screen whilst standing up or to the side). This is still far better than the colour shifting seen in TN panels or the gamma shift in VA.

The main quality control issue with this monitor is really just poor backlight uniformity, this can give the impression the screen has a cool blue "tint" on the left (where it is darker) and warm yellow on the right (where it is brighter).

You can see it in TFTCentral review as well as the one from Czech site ExtraHardware:

http://img815.imageshack.us/img815/5262/paneluniformity1.jpg

http://img695.imageshack.us/img695/2833/podsviceni150.jpg

What this translates to in real world terms is this:

http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/3867/bluetint.th.jpg

Whether you can see it or not is somewhat subjective, some owners never even spot the blue "tint" until they read about it and test it on their unit. It is also only really visible on completely white or light coloured backgrounds.

There are also some claims of actual screen tinting, usually green on the left and pink on the right, but this is much rarer on this model.

Dell's return policy is one of the best, given that the U2311H is in the UltraSharp range, it means it's covered by Dell's Premium Panel Guarantee. What this means is, if you have any stuck/bright pixels (even just 1), they'll send out a replacement for you within a few days. They'll even let you keep your current monitor to use whilst the replacement gets delivered and from I've read, they pick up your old one off you at the same time - free of charge.

Have a look through the very long thread over at HardForum on the U2311H, there are people there who have sent the monitor back for replacements many times over (for free I believe) until they're satisfied with their unit.

I should probably explain what IPS glow for those who've never owned a IPS monitor before. IPS glow is an inherent "flaw" of IPS panels. Black or dark colours, when looked at an angle will "glow" a certain colour, sometimes silvery white, sometimes gold/orange or purple depending on the monitor. The U2311H has gold/orange and purple glow, as seen in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPlx42Gj1Nw

I should stress the glow is only really visible when the majority of the screen is showing black or very dark colours and you're in a dark room as well as looking at the screen at an angle (as in the video above). Sitting face on, the glow is very mild as seen here:

http://img821.imageshack.us/img821/4855/glow2o.th.jpg
There's some slight glow in the corners in the photo above. The glow in the corners will become more pronounced if you sit very close (i.e. <1.5 feet) to the screen.

I only bring this glow issue up as someone over at HardForum was disappointed with the glow as he did not expect it. You'll get IPS glow from any current IPS monitor, not just the U2311H. Do note, in a brightly lit room, the glow is practically imperceivable.

This post might come off as me being fairly negative towards the U2311H, but I'm not, I'm just pointing out all information I know about the monitor. I actually think it's one of the best monitors you can currently buy, especially if you can grab it at a cheap price. Just don't expect this monitor to be absolutely perfect in every way, although it is miles better than the vast majority of sub £250 monitors.

My own personal gripe with the monitor (ignoring the blue tint as I don't really notice it unless I'm looking for it) is that the black levels aren't quite deep enough for me. I went straight from a CRT to the U2311H and therefore the change was very noticeable. However with a black level of 0.14cd/m2 (as per TFTCentral's measurement), it's actually very good for a IPS panel and TN panels aren't much better either. The only way to get deeper blacks is if you buy a monitor with a VA panel, but then you sacrifice response rate, so it's not great for gaming.

Looking for another 23" monitor and this seems a great deal. Love my current Dell one and would have another, but my old one is 1920x1200 and this is 1920x1080 and those 120 pixels actually make quite a difference...
#27
Leave this e-IPS monitors to those in the know. The average unappreciative user should stick with the TN cheap and nasties.
#28
Well, it's actually a killer price, I have been checking every day it's price for 2 months, and it never got below £220+p&p!
Since it's an IPS panel display, it's not comperable to old TF panel monitor, it gives much better color reproduction. But our friend crackerbear already posted a review, so I'll skip it.
Actually I also noticed, that "business users" get it much cheaper, and was chatting with a sales specialist online asking literally if business users are the same as private users, and the answer was yes. No change in warranty, no VAT number, nothing.
So go, and buy it!
#29
I've been using one of these since the end of last year and the 8ms response isn't causing me any kind of problems for gaming.

Lovely monitor, a really noticably step up from TN panel ones and the only thing lacking is an HDMI port (but since the DVI socket supports HDCP a £2 cable or adaptor will sort that)
#30
Incredible price. Only downside is the 16x9 aspect ratio.

Very, very hot.
#31
Hmmmm..... in many respects the quality of the monitor is in the eye of the beholder - or the user, not the reviewer - Depending on the use and thus the applications the user puts the monitor though and the hardware configuration of the users pc etc.

Admitedly this monitor has excellent spec's but it has to be acknowledged that for some people I can understand the puzzeled 'responses' which have left some of the supposedly more savy laughing, but considering you can get a superbly rated and branded 23" or 24" display for less than this, which are more suitable for gaming (due to the faster responce times - 8ms is boarderline) as they get little if no motion blur or ghosting with response times of 2 - 5ms

For those who require superfine detail and colour reproduction there is no better - otherwise do your research and get what suits your use......

I know but they are soooo much more expensicve at present. I have gone for it as someone else said been keeping an eye for a while and not been this price and with Quidco which has always paid on Dell for me ,its approx £175-£180 The new Viewsonic is similar price but not quite as good reading the reviews as is the Benq VA Panel for similar price.
IPS good inputs Good ergonimic stand etc its Very HOT

Just bought a sansung 24" led monitor with 2ms response time @ £180
Would be kicking myself if this was 2ms which I need for gaming...

+1, the 1080p stuff is just marketing crap.

I've got a 24" Yuraku monitor - with a VA panel, it's good quality stuff and paid around £200 2 years ago. But 1920x1200 is the way to go.
#35
Quite good info in regards to gaming and ghosting input lag here http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2311h.htm
I think for your average gamer it is fine 8m will have a small amount of ghosting but for most people its a fantastic mix of colour reproduction black levels and gaming screen. Hardcore gamers may sniff at the 8ms time and im sure they are better of with 2ms but for all round use at at this price nothing compares IMHO
#36
So is there anything good, but not crazy priced at 1920x1200? It's like looking for a needle in a haystack.

I agree 1080p is marketing. Oh look HD! yet it's lower D than I already have...

8ms G-G, not that great for movies

Tee hee, always fun to wind up the geeks!

I have no ideal what an IPS panel is, but get this; I don't need to know! A monitor is a monitor is a monitor, something you plug into your PC so you can see what you're working on. Size is important, screen resolution is important, all else is nonsense.

If, like 99.9% of people, your current monitor works fine, why buy a new one with some new "snake oil" technology gibberish like "IPS-panel nanotechnology" that means nothing?

So for that reason, I stand by my view that this is poor value and a good £80-100 overpriced. Hence cold.
