Smaller screen for those with small desk space and large wallets. Make sure your graphics card is good :) Might be useful for a small selection of people.

totally see no point to this. 4k minimum 28''
It will make a lot more sense when Windows applications are made to scale properly on high DPI screens. See OSX or your smartphone.
I have 1 laptop and 1 tablet at 200% (2600x1440) and have no scaling trouble with any apps I am using. The sharpness is incredible.
So is the native resolution 2560x1440 or the effective scaled resolution? If the latter then what is the effective scaled resolution? 1280x720!
With Apple 4K scaled would give you an effective working resolution of 1920x1080 I think.
Personally at this price I'd rather a larger screen with 2560x1440 that I wouldn't need to scale.
[...]
Yes native resolution is 2560x1440. Yes effective screen estate is 1280x720 - but fonts, bitmaps, etc. render at the native resolution so they are very sharp just as on phones and tablets. There is no "scaled resolution" except for legacy apps not aware of high DPI.
I'm not sure what you mean "no need to scale" we need to move away from 1:1 we've had so long and think in "effective pixels" not "native pixels" - that's the only way you're going to get the same sharpness as on modern phones/tablets.
It is ridiculous to have far higher DPI on phones/tablets than laptops or monitors - at effective distance (i.e. accounting for use distance to screen).
1280x720 effective! You really have got the best of both worlds..

We're talking 11-13" screens - I like big fonts - but you can set the zoom lower to get more screen estate if your eyesight is better...

I'd like to see this style of monitor to see how it compares with my U2413 which is 24" 1920x1200 and is factory calibrated and also supports the full Adobe RGB colour space.
Even though this doesn't offer Premium Colour support as I tend not to use the Adobe RGB pre-set this may well look better albeit lacking the 1200P when scaled. So many choices these days.

Got the Benq delivered Sat ,must say Im well impressed so far
Also had a 2209WA followed by LG 120Hz TN and now a pair of Benq BL2411PT screens.

Benq BL2411PT is the best general purpose monitors I've owned and I have had access / used a fair few other similar 24" screens through work. I've been grinding my way through a backlog of games on these BenQ screen and at the same time messing around with SLR photography. All kinds of games - RPG, RTS, Strategy, FPS, Indie, Racing, Space Sims without any significant issues. Screens also used for RAW photo conversion / editing DXO optics, ACDsee, Lightroom, Paintshop Pro. Excellent all rounder IMO.

If no 1 priority is gaming 120Hz / 144Hz TN are noticeably more responsive. They are close but not quite CRT level of sharpness for a moving scene. IPS is a little bit slower pixel response and the quality of a moving game scene is less sharp but not in a bad way like heavy ghosting. A slight softness to scrolling game environment is OK to me whereas any kind of stutter or tearing I find massively distracting.

2209WA had a grain like quality to the anti-glare coating and the Benq in this regard is much improved. Text seems clearer and easier to read with less aggressive coating.

Good monitor. TFT central have an in-depth review. It's very similar monitor to BenQ BL2411PT which is ~ £30 cheaper and also having good reviews. I considered both monitors and decided the BenQ was the better option for having a less aggressive anti-glare coating. Both IPS, flicker free dimming, low power LED backlight, adjustable stand, thin bezel


I just checked reviews and it looks promising, have you got it and use it for gaming? I've got Dell 2209WA which I love but I need something bigger with higher resolution. How's ghosting on BenQ? I play a lot of Starcraft etc. but also fast FPS shooters like Counter Strike, will it be ok for those?


Thanks!

IPS panel... nice... especially good to view it from the side.
The screens can still be Grade A. Only A+ go in the top end monitors. and I assure you, It wouldn't surprise me with such small discrepancies.. a few A+ get classed as A, and vice versa. Apple charge 899.. (same panel, grade A+ vs my A - presumably) yes, with the far superior stand, thunderbolt and a couple of USB 2.0 connections and 2 years warranty) - Worth an extra 650?

But yeah, odds and sods. Typically you can say you get what you paid for... In the 2-3 years I've had it, only the PSU broke (sent a free replacement via DHL from china, to my door in about 5 working days).

to add, I dare bet if I sold it on ebay, it'd still clear 170+


Just checked, I only got it in October 2012. But it only cost me £203 delivered. - ebay item : 130724901986

Very poor quality product

Any evidence to back this up, please, links to reviews perhaps or anything that adds any credibility?


mamboboy
As for Ianw555's moronic "very poor quality product" comment, Eizo make some of the best high-end monitors around.

I don't think it's necessary to make personal insults about other members because your opinion happens to differ from theirs.
I said the comment is moronic (which it is), how is that a personal insult?

Probably because a moron would be unlikely to be able to use a computer at all, let alone post replies on a forum such as this. I don't think it's unreasonable to say that your comment implies that the poster is a moron.

Do Graphics cards output 4k?
Yep, newer ones support it via DisplayPort, and I believe via HDMI 1.4 as well

I'm not sure about display ports but I read an article recently that stated that HDMI could only support 30hz and 16bit colour at 4K due to bandwidth limitations. Therefore the 4K TV's with HDMI are just a waste of space until the sockets catch up.
In that case you'd need to go DisplayPort then which is definately 60Hz @ 4K. A high end GPU needed for this will almost certainly have a DP1.2 output.

Yeah just checked and Display port has a massive bandwidth increase over HDMI, the latest version can support 24bit colour 3D image at 4k.

**Dribble**

I could go on but I think you get the point.

I think people really need to use their brain a bit before voting.
This is the best price available for this monitor.

This is not a 1080p monitor with 2 million pixels.
It is a 1440p monitor with 3.7 million pixels. That's 78% more pixels!
You also can't compare it to those crappy Korean catleap/Hazro/DGM monitors. They will have dead pixels. Also, if anything goes wrong, you need to either send it to Korea (expensive) or send it off for an RMA (no monitor for a while).
The stands are also naff on those. If you tilt even a little, then the monitor will fully tilt. There's also no height adjust or portrait mode.

It doesn't have your standard iso pixel policy. It has a perfect pixel policy.
It's also wide gamut and has portrait rotate.


well your first statement is clearly a valid argument and not taken out of context at all...

RMA is standard... who mentioned DGM?


ur res anit that special. 1440p..few samsungs and acer's priced at 400

owwww it turns! and tilts! best give u my credit card details.

my point was

u've paid nearly 600 for a monitor with a high res, wide gamut...granted! i'll give u that, a card reader, and USB ports. i fail to see the attraction.

this MAY be the best price for his monitor, but other options out there.

just to 'quote' u should i go get some beats earphones because they are £40? not usual 100+


Considering I've wasted my time responding to this. think i'll leave it here. have fun enjoy your gaming!

"RMA is standard... who mentioned DGM?"

Sure RMA is standard, but that's what I mean.
With Dell you're not waiting around for a replacement. It's with you the next day and then you send your old one back.
I don't know about you, but I'd rather pay a little extra for good customer service.

Someone in the thread mentioned DGM.

"owwww it turns! and tilts!"

Yes it does. Not all do. It's another feature. What's the issue there?
You need to compare like for like.
Not a cheaper panel that doesn't have half the features this one does.

"ur res anit that special. 1440p..few samsungs and acer's priced at 400"
"this MAY be the best price for his monitor, but other options out there."

Please show me what better options are out there.
I'm pretty sure I've looked at them all, but better options might help someone if you could point them out.

"just to 'quote' u should i go get some beats earphones because they are £40? not usual 100+"

Well if I need/want Beats, then I'd get them at that price.

Got a 27" iMac for a little more than this. In fact about a 100 quid more. It's a pc as well not just a monitor and works as a monitor too whilst looking pretty.

Totally different products.

With this you get:
3 year warranty
pixel perfect guarantee
wide colour gamut
calibrated display
USB 3
card reader
180° swivel (portrait mode)
anti glare screen (personal taste)
a variety of inputs
picture in picture feature

So the iMac might be good, but it's not gonna be any use with my gaming pc.
Isn't it thunderbolt only?

based on its spec and early user reviews this could be the best 27" monitor ever under £1000 (for photo buffs and colour folk and general consistency)
also great to see the new AH-IPS LG panel being used here, one up on Apple I think!
normally I would wait for the reviews but I have ordered here as I think the advantages vs the U2713HM are worth it, particularly on consistency and gamut
Don't want to belabor the point, but I do find the U2713H interesting for photography too (a larger gamut is helpful with ink jet printers which can print more colours that standard monitors). While lesser screens such as the 2713HM are also IPS, the higher end version has more uniform brightness (with some ability to adjust for it over time), and although more colour nuances (10bits v. 8 bits)... provided one has the right equipment (ie Photoshop and the proper video card). Web/Gamers/Office users will be best served by the lower end version...
Most people won't notice the difference between the U2713H and U2713HM monitors, you only need the U2713H version if you are actually intending on colour correcting for broadcast television or outputting to DCP (digital cinema), but then its probably best to buy the cheaper monitor for editing and pay a colourist to colour correct your film - professionally (in other words, they will do a better job than you)! If all you do is Youtube, Vimeo, DVD or Bluray work the colour space on the U2713HM will be perfect for you - and a bargain with 40% off at the moment, as mentioned by another member!!!

They're both IPS panels, not quite sure how one is not as good as the other for "colour critical" work

Because this one has a wide colour gamut. So can display more colours.

Not everyone use their computer for games. . I have never had or used games on my PC So this a great Monitor for someone like me as I mostly use my PC for graphic work
Voted Hot, hear lots of good things about Dell's high end monitors.
This is a HOT deal, IPS and 16:10 with 1920*1200 resolution makes this a decent PC monitor.
There is no problem with gaming on a 16:10 monitor. This is a great monitor. I'm not up on the prices to tell if this isa good deal or not as I haven't been looking but to say its crap because its 16:10 is completely absurd & anyone who thinks that can just just go back to their beloved 19" TN panel Technika from Tesco & have themselves a grand day.
work or gaming, I couldn't use a 16:9 screen any more as they feel really short.

Great monitor.

buying from a certified seller is as good as going direct

With the caveat you don't get the full warranty and you won't know the full warranty period until it arrives then you have to contact Dell to find out.

Post it as a deal if you think its good enough m8 :)


I don't think either are "hot" deals. But I know I would pay the extra £25 to go direct with Dell with cash back and get the full warranty of the deal posted here as it works out at only £5 more after CB.

Otherwise it's the same price at Amazon & CCL Online.
Ahh see the coupon now on Quidco the one on here is 10% must be a new one not seen that 20% one before , still have to wait for cashback to track if it does tho as we know not guaranteed, buying from a certified seller is as good as going direct

Post it as a deal if you think its good enough m8 :)
Your math is also incorrect :)

The coupon is 20% and cash back is 9%.

£248.64 with coupon
-9% quidco (pre-vat)
= £229.99 after quidco
softpurple
This is cold from me. When you buy from anywhere besides Dell the 3 year warranty starts the day the monitor leaves Dell warehouses, so could be several months old depending on how long they have had the stock.

These are £310.80 direct from Dell, 9% coupon pay £248.64 today and possible 20% quidco brings the total to £207.20 after cash back and gets you the full warranty period.

Also @OP the pixel guarantee is with Dell not the reseller, so if it's under warranty then it applies regardless of where it was purchased.


Your maths are not correct its £279.72 with 10% coupon, Quidco is only 9% so total if cashback tracks £254.46 , £30 more expensive

I'm always surprised at how third parties can offer the monitors cheaper than Dell direct,


I always presume it was because if the manufacturer sold a product cheaper than everyone else then nobody else would bother to sell it. This would mean lower overall sales in the end because less people would find the product.
£552 direct? I'd have had some of that. I was buying laptops at that time so completely missed that offer. Damn.
I'm always surprised at how third parties can offer the monitors cheaper than Dell direct, it's been similar since I bought the Ultrasharp 24'' 6 or so years ago.
And yeah, seems sensible what you decided to do, one of the XPS 17s I received had a very minor bright pixel defect right at the edge, I'd have stuck with it as you did, unfortunately the trackpad was dead too... Shame, cos the panel was miles better than the other two, must've been a different manufacturer.

If I got a U2711 with one dead pixel that I couldn't replace, I'd never be able to use it again without seeing it.
I'm strange like that.
I'd never buy a decent monitor (or laptop for that matter) from a retailer who didn't guarantee 100% pixel perfection. Had three XPS17s before Christmas, each had dead pixels. Dell replaced them all.


I would generally consider myself the same, however my U2711 does have a single dead pixel around 1cm up and 1cm left from the bottom right corner. However you literally cannot see it except on one background colour and you have to be about 1 inch away and look very hard.

I rang Dell and they offered to swap it out the next day but I decided to keep it as it basically guarantees me a free replacement almost 3 years on :|

Side note apparently they were on offer at the end of December until first week of Jan for £552 direct from dell with a 15% code also available. + Quidco! Gutted.

However, the screen was broken and the box it came in had a large dent/tear/hole in the side of it.


If you could clearly see the damage to the box you should have checked contents prior to signing and if possible stated damage with driver.


Didn't notice the damage until after I'd unpacked it. The screen didn't look damaged until I'd turned it on anyway. Hopefully this will get resolved without loads of headaches.

The only monitor I would want to switch my U2711 for.

I believe A06 was shipping around April/May though and you have to bear that in mind when buying these from third party retailers as the 3 year warranty starts the day Dell ships the monitor. So if the retailer sits on stock for 6 months your only actually getting 2.5 years of warranty etc.


I bought my 2408WFP from PCBuyIt and I had the full 3 year warranty from it to the point where I had an issue with the screen a month and a bit before the 3 years were up and they replaced it with a new U2410 rather than a refurb unit.

Excellent service from Dell!!!

The NEC is about £300-400 dearer than the Dell, but if you are able to live with the anti-glare sparkle then this is not a bad monitor at all. Probably not for photo and colour work but for CAD and design in general it is worth considering if you have only room for one large monitor. A grand would pay for two 27" Hazros, otherwise.

Voted hot, nonetheless.
Dell coating - failure. If you want to invest into a good IPS monitor, NEC is your best bet. Coating makes Ultrasharp monitors horrible for graphics work.

Very few landscape / portrait pivot monitors of any size or quality around, so difficult to compare, but not surprising it's a fair bit more expensive than an non-pivot monitor

Hanktank - this monitor is aimed more at graphic design professionals rather than gamers. The price is good for those professionals, but if you're only gaming at 1080p you're quite right its a waste of time spending money on this if you're not a pro. Gamers are better with a TN panel as the response times are faster.

This monitor isn't for you so please stop trolling this deal.


Yeah so an opinion that is different to your own is trolling? Im letting others know that this monitor has been around since Jan 2010, in terms of LCD technology it is old. LED monitors with IPS panels can be had much cheaper as the price of LCD moniters had dropped a load since then, im sorry my opinion offends you for whatever reason but thats your problem not mine. Take it easy mate


Did you even read the rest of what I wrote? The fact that LED backlighting is a newer technology doesn't make it better than the W-CCFL backlighting in the U2711. I'm not arguing opinion.

I can understand your difference of opinion, you don't think this monitor is worth the money over several cheaper options, and for 99% of people I agree. But don't go crapping on this thread suggesting alternatives that are nowhere near comparable.

If you'd like an LED lit alternative, Overclockers has an inferior Hazro 27" for £400: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MO-011-HO

Where can I get a 2560x1440 LED monitor for £300-£400?

just here:http://overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MO-013-HO

That looks like a nice screen, better value imo

If you look at the specs it’s clearly not in the same league as the Dell which is aimed at Professionals who are going to happily spend the extra £250 and buy the right tool for the job. £250 works out at about 23p a day over the 3 year warranty period which is insignificant for a business user. If you can’t afford that what does that say about your business!
I had a client that spent about £750 on a 15” Philips TFT about 11 years ago when a decent quality 17” CRT was about £500 so this is really cheap. :D

This is a very good price for an IPS monitor. It's only 1680 X 1050 though so anyone wanting to use it for full HD video (eg Blu-ray) may prefer to go for a 24" with 1920 x 1080 or 1200. Still a good buy and far better than a TN panel.
Glix;7699937
you could get it for £5 less on the EBuyer with the hit and miss super saver delivery (silver version), black is more expensive.

Well it was also £5 cheaper on pcbuyit for the silver but I wanted the black (didn't want any reflectiveness).
I paid £200.49 delivered in September last year from overclockers.co.uk - Just checked their site and its now £253

As Glix says this is not a normal TN panel its much better! Really this is the best monitor Ive ever used! Well worth the extra money. Colours are amazing in games and videos and the viewing angle is sooo much better than a regular screen.
People voting cold without any knowledge of LCD's... great.

It's an IPS panel hence why it costs more than your cheapo TN panel 22"

I got this monitor thinking it would a good change. However, trying to get it setup properly in Windows 7 is tough. I can't seem to get the 1680x1050 resolution, only 1600x1200 which looks blurred. Even using the Windows 7 2009w driver here - http://ftp1.us.dell.com/monitors/ - Windows 7 won't let me change from the non-pnp driver (connected on VGA) to the one I listed from the Dell site above.

If I find the answer to this problem, I'll post it here to help others.

EDIT: Right! Very simple and I should've had an inkling of why things were the way they were. VGA doesn't allow for the standard 'native' resolution of 1680x1050. It took for my more techsavvy brother to encourage me to try a DVI connection instead of the VGA one. I did, and found that suddenly it went straight to the native resolution and looked much better. Hurrah! And may I just add that this monitor is gorgeous and I've stopped using my 32" tv for playing pc games on and now use this 20" Dell monitor because it's stunning. Great quality and loving the added usb and webcam features. Very useful.

EDIT2: Right, started using the built-in webcam mic for use in online games. It works well and I unhooked my normal mic because it was very similar quality AND then I had one less cable stretching across my floor! However, a real problem comes up during play. Out of the blue, the mic makes me sound like a robot randomly! And, I have no way of fixing it. I just have to hope that it fixes itself. Even exiting the game and returning does nothing. I'm at a loss. If anyone has experienced this and knows a fix, please pass it on. I'd be very appreciative! Once more, if I find the solution, I will post it here.
for a 20" monitor it is pricy but if you consider it has usb hub webcam and hi resolution then i suppose its a good deal. 3 year warranty is standard for most monitors deals these days. I never head of this retauiler before but there are the reviews on google product for those who are interested in purchasing http://www.google.co.uk/products/reviews?fq=Dell+SP2009W&cid=12c261993c924526&sort=1&cat=merchants strangely it went cold when posted 9 months ago at £149.25 http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/309094/dell-sp2009w-20-inch-widescreen-fla

Ah, I'd forgotton about the second one, I guess that'll have a few specialised benefits like easiest wall mounting and easier lan party travel..


To add to that they should be theoretically more resistant to vibration and damage through transport. However, again it really depends on the individual screen unfortunatley.

EndlessWaves;5185910
Do you have any sorts of figures here? 10 years vs. 20 years?.


Unofrtunately not. The industry will tell you LED backlights can outlast their CCFL counterparts by "upto" a factor of 2. In reality there are many factors which can close that gap. Generally you're looking at a backlight lifteime of 25k to 100k hours. I would expect an LED backlight in a similarly classed display to outlast its CCFL counterpart, but perhaps not always to the extent to warrant the extra cost. :roll:

EndlessWaves;5185910
Unfortunately, as the general software support isn't in place yet this is generally a disadvantage since it'll result in everything having shifted colours..


Again it depends what you use the monitor for. If the application invovles somtthing like picture editing it would be advisable to consider an LED backliit display. Ofcourse you'd also need to invest in calibration equipment, as there's not point in having a screen that can output a broader range of the visible spectrum if its displaying everything incorrectly :)

EndlessWaves;5185910
All rather academic for a cheap TN screen like this.


The fact that its a TN screen doesn't necessarily mean it will fail to take the advantages of LED backlighting from a technical point of view. However, unfortunately it may be an indicator that the manufacturer has cut corners, so you could be right.
Mentos;5177412
The potential advantages of LED backlighting over CCFL are:

1) Lower power consumption
2) Improved physical attributes, i.e. thinner, lighter

Ah, I'd forgotton about the second one, I guess that'll have a few specialised benefits like easiest wall mounting and easier lan party travel.

Mentos;5177412

3) Longer backlight life

Do you have any sorts of figures here? 10 years vs. 20 years?

Mentos;5177412

4) Improved colour Gamut, i.e. they can reproduce a greater range of colours.

Unfortunately, as the general software support isn't in place yet this is generally a disadvantage since it'll result in everything having shifted colours.

Mentos;5177412

5) More consistant backlight coverage. Due to multiple light sources from LED's rather then one or two CCFL lamps.
6) No shift in colour gamut over lifetime. CCFL output wil shift over time.
7) Consistant brightnes over lifetime. CCFL's lose brightness over their lifetime. LED's generally remain consistant until they go "pop"


All rather academic for a cheap TN screen like this.

I have just purchased 10 of these for work and they are good but not great. The first I did was turn off the power saving fature as all it did was dim the screen to the point it looked dull.
Looks like they're not configured properly?

I spent quite a bit of time configuring my 19" TFT TN monitor when I purchased it a few years ago. For a start, it was too bright & everything was set at 100%. There are various settings to play with, & free programs out there to calibrate monitors properly - perhaps not to a professional standard, but surely anything's better than the rubbish default settings! And remember, once you do one to your liking, you'll hopefully only need to replicate the same settings on the other monitors :thumbsup:

The OP is a little confused 'This is a LED-LCD against the more common TFT-LCD.' ...it's still a TFT screen, only the backlight has changed from CCFL to LED.

Decent price I guess, though personally I'd never buy a TN.
