Why is this cold???

Original Poster

exactly what i was wondering ive just bought 3 for the same price as their 24" u2410 :roll:

Voted hot, good spec with excellent warranty, ANY bright stuck pixel in 3 years and dell will replace the monitor

Looks good to me! If anyone is wondering what Eyefinity is:

amd.com/uk/…spx

i think its voted cold because the price doesn't inc VAT & shipping costs.

nice monitor but i just received my 24" Benq G2420HDB which is brilliant & cost £142 delivered.

£155 delivered inc VAT

but still you are missing one major factor with that, the benq monitor doesnt have a displayport which is the only reason I posted this deal, monitors with DP support are few and thin on the ground and are usually no less than £350-400 whereupon this deal is truly amazing and as you need a monitor with a DisplayPort (or buy an expensive adapter) to make use of eyefinity, youre point is superfluous

OP This may be a good deal for a monitor with Displayport, however the convention on this site is to post deals inclusive of VAT and delivery. There is no need to be offensive, as905 made a perfectly reasonable observation without being unpleasant.

The link does not work

Hot, excellent stand too that allows full adjustment (height, tilt, swivel etc...) - far too many monitors lack this!

I got one a few months back, went through Topcashback.
So far, I've received (as in, it's in my bank and been spent) £25 and I'm supposedly going to be getting another £18 on top.

As with all cashback offerings, make sure you're happy spending the money on the item in the first place. You won't always get anything so you need to treat it as a bonus if you do.

The monitor itself is pretty standard, the stand is nice but you're basically getting a 1080p TN LCD with a Displayport socket.

I have 3 of these monitors ready to use with eyefinity. Great monitors, worth the money

so eyefinity is the ability to have a bank of 3 or more monitors acting as one

sounds great but too rich for me (3+ monitors!!) - i'm out

regardless of the eyefinity feature, is this a bargain for just the other features or is it a normal price

i know nothing of monitors but know that id like to change from my crt fatload

ebay sells cheaper

I've got a XFX HD5870 I see one display port on the card, I feel like such a newb asking this question, but how would i go about setting this with three screens up with only the one port?

seen loads more HD monitors on Misco.... larger and cheaper too

The other 2 screens will connect with DVI or HDMI and only 1 connects via DP.

Aww man, I'm feeling left out. I posted this info the other day and only got 31 degrees of heat!

hotukdeals.com/ite…5-q

You can get the 23" version for about £20 more per monitor using the 20% SMB monitor discount code.

Cold from me, jmdarley's deal is much better for an extra £20.

Sorry cold you can use a cheap Display Port to VGA Adapter with any old monitor for Eyefinity, this has been tested and proven on Widescreengaming forums.

Check out your favourite auction site item ID 330379051140 - they work a treat.

With a 3 monitor spread using TN panels the left and right might seem faded.

I use a HD projector.

I would say he's more of a Rocker myself :thumbsup:

It's cheap because eyefinity isn't that much of novelty. Most modern laptops/PCs have at least two video outputs (eg VGA/HDMI, or even VGA/DVI/HDMI) and you can feed signal to at least two screens at the same time.

Eyefinity is great except for the enormous intrusive borders that annihilate anything approaching a good view

I love the fact that this monitor can rotate 90 degrees and thus use it portrait. I can find very few other monitors that do this for this price. Do people know of others? Thanks.

Bit of a niche product, i think i'd personally be inclined to go for one, large, monitor. Still, hot either way.

Nobody really needs a display port pcworld.com/art…tml

That's why they're selling these monitors off, because by this time next year the port will be off theit monitors and replaced with an HDMI.

I bought 2 a few months back because it had vertical rotation, its terrible for viewing angles vertically, unusable for me and I've been through about a good 15 panels of different brands/models and this was by far the worst for viewing angles. Using them now though because its usable when just horizontal...! Would not recommend and wrote a review on Dell site. Another reviewer said same.

Care to post a link? I can't seem to find anything on their extremely user unfriendly forums.
I've tried Eyefinity with a cheap adapter like that, and couldn't get it to work.

EDIT: Managed to find the thread I think you were talking about -
widescreengamingforum.com/for…468

14 pages of mostly people having problems getting it to work properly. I think I'd rather stick to buying a monitor I KNOW it will work fine with.

Wow, grear article..... Next time try to notice the subjet matter and reason for this monitor being a hot deal (that being 'Eyefinity') and ignore articles written long before it's existence.

Again.... someone who doesn't know what they are talking about. Yes, lot's of PC's/laptops have the ability to display 2 or more screens. One of my PC's has an Nvidia NVS440, which outputs to 4 screens. However, this does NOT work when trying to span a single game over 4 (or 3) screens.
And THAT is the point of Eyefinity.
Try using a graphics card with 2 DVI and 1 HDMI output to display on 3 screens.... Oh wait, you CAN'T, because one of those DVI channels (TMDS) is shared with the HDMI (same would be said of a card with VGA/DVI/HDMI).


Can people with so little knowledge try NOT to state opinions on subjets they no nothing about. Fair enough, ask the question if you are not sure, but trying to put people off with utter bull is just annoying.

Snappy, but wrong. Sure, DisplayPort is late to the party, but there is absolutely no doubt that it is the way forward. Packet based transmission has so many advantages, plus proper bidirectional communication is long overdue. Embedded USB transport is just an example: DisplayPort is flexible enough to transport just about anything. E.g. an eSata port on your monitor could be handy, and it is possible without another cable.

Of course you don't have to buy it - and even a VGA port works kind of ok. But the future belongs to DisplayPort, and you may just as well get ready for it now.

Incorrect. For PCs at least it's likely DisplayPort is the way forward. Aside from the normal benefits of a digital signal standard, DisplayPort has bi-directional communication (something HDMI will only get with the 1.4 specification), audio and video combined in one stream, micropacket communication and most importantly is royalty-free. Apple have already been using it for some time now.

Any other views about how this monitor works in portrait mode? I'd like to be able to use in landscape most of the time whilst when writing word processing documents move into portait mode.

Thanks for all views!

Gah hate apples mini display ports. About 20 quid a pop every time some moron wants to view something off their mac. They think we have them laying about in the tech department.

jukkie wow you really have a bad attitude don't you.

Those adapters work fine for the majority of people (have you actually read the thread) and so what if they require a bit of tinkering. My point was that you can get Eyefinity up and running with three old monitors reasonably cheaply which most people do not realise.

jukkie you really need to stop using steroids, they **** your brain up!

BTW gaming on 3 16:9 21 inch screens is like driving a car looking through a letterbox hole.

Unless your using this for eyeinity, don't get it the quality is crap.
The physical build and stand are excellent though.

You can get more for your money.
