super price, for what you get
39925369-Piqo1.jpgPaid £920 for this start of last year... Best purchase ever... Hands down been a brilliant monitor.
That's actually an amazing price. I wonder if Amazon will price match?
Good price but the new model is out (3420DW).

I'm guessing they are getting rid of old stock.

I have the 3418DW and it's great, good buy at £600.

Would it be better for me to get a monitor like this or a cheaper 4k monitor for gaming on the Xbox one x / PS4 pro?

I'm currently using a cheap £260 4k monitor atm

Remember this is a 1440p monitor, not 4k so all depends on what you want. Personally for xbox and ps4 I'd stick to a decent 10bit HDR 4k TV, size of your choice.

Do you notice a little shadowing at the top of the screen when browsing websites? I heard that's an issue

Ultrawide resolutions aren't supported on current gen consoles, so definitely don't get this. You'd have black bars down the sides of the screen or your picture would be stretched to fit.

It's an IPS monitor so you can get a little bleed around the edges. I'll be honest I do have a little but I've configured the monitor as per others have reccomend and it's not been noticeable.

Having said that I have seen people that have had horrendous bleed and sent it back.

Either way if you get this and it has it, dell's advanced warranty scheme will replace it till you get a good display

The shadow seems to be something other than IPS bleed? Or maybe it is but it's more noticeable I don't know. There was a review that showed it but I can't seem to find it now.

I'm tempted to get the monitor but it seems to be something all of them will have to some extent.

If it's a shadow on the top, mine deffo does not have this. And like I said, dell's advanced replace warranty will sort out any problems if you have them

I don't think you can apply two discount codes at once. I've been trying to apply my Defence Discount Service code with it and it won't take it. If the DDS code is applied beforehand, DAEBIGSALE will override it.

Most people believe the improvements are pretty minor, certainly not worth spending a few hundred more for.

Are you sure? Apparently you can't see it in games but virtually all of them have it and it's when you have a white background like when you're in Chrome. I get the advanced replace warranty thing but if it's something virtually all of them then you'd go through dozens of them.
I wish I could find the reviews again that pointed it out.

Did a little more research. It's called vignetting and it does seem almost all of the particular monitor have it. The only thing putting me off it sadly.

This monitor does have the shadowing at the top, but it is very faint. I only notice it when using Chrome and actively looking for it.

I use this monitor every day, and had completely forgotten about the shadow until I read your post

If it's not shipped then yeah talk to CS, I had to ring them on 08005871456.

If it has shipped then you could always order this and refuse delivery of the first, or Dell might just give you the difference.

Thank you, i just cancelled the previous order since it has not delivered yet. And reorder for £609.99 save £50. Got an cancellation email from the previous order. Thank you again
Paid £630 a year ago, when it was on offer, used NUS + Cashback
anyone had their order for this?

Ordered mines monday, website still just says confirmed, no shipping details etc.

Mine has an ETA of today but no further info about despatch so far.
hmm Im tempted to contact them but also feel this may be one of those cancellation sprees, Technically the code is for dell employee's and alot of people have jumped on this deal. Hence the possible delay in orders.
Dell CS gave me the code over email, he never said it was staff or unique for me so I don't think it will get cancelled.
stock issues according to CS, Annoying it still had the arrive by date, Suppose its a waiting game now

The price has gone up, they are still taking orders though...
I ordered Monday 17th, just before midday with an original delivery date of 17/02/2020. I've just got an delay email with a new delivery date of 26/02/2002.
Had mine delivered today and it’s the latest model, which is nice, but a part of me wants to complain and see if I can get a cheeky discount.

Mine has just been delivered and is a 20. Several people on OCUK have had the same result too. I'm very happy with this result. Is there a scenario where you would genuinely want the 18 over the 20?
No, I'm kidding really.

I'm hoping everything is ok and nothing goes wrong, as I was looking at Dell on Trustpilot and it's pretty grim.
I think these have a decent warranty, you get sent another before you send yours off so if there was an issue with the replacement you could send it back and request another.
Mine has arrived and they also have sent me the new 20 version.
