Personally I'd recommend an LCD TV for less money; You can buy an excellent 37" telly with A-MVA panel for around 400 quids.

riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight - personally I think you should get some clarity in your viewing pleasure :)

2560 x 1440 pixels is a way higher resolution than you will see on a TV for 400 notes...

lol...
its a monitor not a tv...there is alot of difference - these are designed to be left on for long periods without burn in - lcd tv's arent- the more expensive monitors have much better quality panel and electronics - whether they are worth the extra is debatable though

TV's are fine for webpage viewing and playing games but for webpage production, serious graphic's work (colour accuracy) and high end gaming, this monitor is about the best you can get for under a grand.

Plus a 37inch TV on a computer desk would be a bit on the large side to work with.

I've bought this so I can plug everything in at once.

Xbox360 (HDMI), PC (DVI-1), Server (DVI-2), Wii (Component), PS2 (SVHS), and it has a card reader and USB ports.

Here's some review links (TFT Central, AnandTech and Cnet UK).

While I would prefer a 16:10 panel, there aren't too many monitors out there with higher than 1080p resolution. It is going to be a choice between this and the few 30" 2560x1600 ones available (notably the Dell 3008wfp) if you require a very high resolution monitor.
#6
Voted hot, good price - this is £892 at scan.co.uk
#7
IPS panel too. Great monitor if you have the money.
#8
Better going via Currys and using the 5% off voucher which is 5may or similar. :thumbsup:

Added.
Curry's give 3.5% TopCashback so on top of the 5% voucher that brings the price down to 'only' £550.
#9
Good price for what is the only 2560 x 1440 27" screen on the market, but £599 is a lot of money. Surprised to see DSG group are the ones offering it cheaper than anyone else!
#10
It seems I can't add heat to this. That's a shame as it's VERY HOT! I came here to post the same deal but you've beat me to it. Hopefully not a misprice.

Yeah because 1080 is a decent resolution..... :roll:


If you're in a need of monster resolution which is not supported by most things it's fine (still overpriced though).
If I'd have to choose between 2560 x 1440 on 27" or 1920x1080 on 37" I'd go for the second option in a heartbeat, it's just much better value for the money. But that's me, I guess.
#12
Do some people realise this is a monitor not a telly? Youd want a telly, but at 1080 it would be just OK as a monitor, this is so much better!

Hot from me as I was looking at one at the original price of £1000 odd! :O

It's not comparing like-for-like. If I wanted a TV I'd go for a 37", if I wanted a monitor I'd go for this Dell. Working on a 37" would not be ideal and the extra pixels on the Dell are great for many things.

This is a high end monitor aimed at graphics professionals etc so comparisons to a TV are futile.

Exactly, it's a bit like comparing an SLR camera to a pocket point and shoot camera.

If you just play games, browse the net and do email, then this monitor would be a waste of money and complete over kill, but for web design, graphic work, development etc... it's a bargain.

When I went to a dual monitor setup it speed up my work-flow as you see two main programs at once, with this screen I can put even more on the screen and get things done more efficiently.

For this money you could get a 50inch TV but not very useful for colour accurate work.

Just thought I would add that I got 5% off (£30) using the code 5ALL when I ordered it on Sunday night, but the code no longer worked when I posted the deal.

EDIT: They tried to deliver it today (DHL) but I wasn't in, should be redelivered tomorrow.

There's a 6% code but it's for Currys - 6MAY

Doesn't matter now, the price has gone up to £899.99.

I always though this was a pricing error anyway, glad I ordered when I did. :-D

May as well expire this deal.

They’ve pulled it from the site now completely.
Mine are being delivered today and I was going to order more with the 6% code although I can’t complain as I used the 5% code for mine also. :thumbsup:

Balls, I was going to order this morning :(
#20
As DHL failed to deliver it I had to go the the sorting office to pick it up myself, as I don't own a car I strapped it to my motorbike!!!

I'm glad I've finally got a decent deal (£569.99) when buying from PC World :-D

How many others got it before the price went up?

@jimstone - glad you got it and posting here didn't alert DGSI before yours arrived. Shame I'm short on $$$ at the moment. You'll have to give a mini review on it. I'm unsure weather to go for a u2711 or a u2410 with a view to eyefinity.

That’s a very big box to be carrying on a motor bike in the UK! Although in India 4 year olds carry bigger than that on their scooters. :-D

I aimed my comment for those who would buy this as an average user; This is not for them, and they wouldn't really profit of the resolution eighter.
BTW I've been using Photoshop since version 6.0 on daily basis and I STILL reckon that a good telly is up for the job. (A good CRT would crush any LCD, but that's another story.)

I can’t imagine that an average user would even consider spending £600 on a monitor. I don’t even think that average users would spend £300 on a 1080P 32” TV to be used as a monitor. When you talk about £600 or 32” in terms of monitors you’ve waived goodbye to the average.
#25
anyone know where a good deal for this monitor exists now?

haha, to be honest mate, you shouldn’t of even posted on this to start off with, you are just digging yourself a hole! If you are as experienced as you claim to be using photoshop, you'd know doing graphics work on a TV as a monitor is just plan ridiculous...

I just wish this deal is still around now, as i would drop this price at a heartbeat.
