HOT for the 25" version at sub 250!

Even better if your VAT registered as makes it 200 in this deal

Smoking! I have this display at £256 from pcbuyit, I tried to get it cheaper, but they wouldn't move an inch

Cheers, ordered!

4k Dell IPS avaible £310



Make sure it's not that crap 30Hz one.

Superb monitor. I bought one from these guys a couple of weeks ago when the previous thread was on the forum. The resolution it has is perfect for this size monitor...4k would not be appropriate for a 25" screen. The quality of its IPS screen is amazing and the service from this supplier was great as I had a fully trackable next day delivery included.

It's not.
Crap one is TN, the P2415Q is 60Hz IPS, was around £310 last week from amazon.de

IPS monitors are normally not aimed at gamers, it doesn't make it an extremely hot buy for the quality and design.

If you are VAT registered then you'll make up the £40 you save be charging whoever your customers are a higher price, meaning you could be missing out in the long run.

Meh, play at 1440p on my Crossover Black tune. That has 6ms response time, but I simply cannot remember a time when I have absolutely wooped on Battlefield 4. I think 10ms is pushing it, however.

Heh? Although it was a pointless comment as you obviously save 16.666% on everything you claim as a business expense, he obviously meant you save £40 if it's for your own use. However, if you DO manage to charge a higher price when selling it on to a customer, how are you "losing out in the long run"?

Being VAT registered usually means the amount of money you lose paying VAT on sales dwarfs any savings you make on the VAT you reclaim from assets such as computing products.

Is there an income threshold when it becomes worthwhile? Or is it just about attracting customers who want to claim the VAT back on their purchases?

VAT registered is only really useful if your main type of work is business to business. all our clients are businesses so they are used to being charged VAT and will get the VAT back, so we dictate our normal price then just add the VAT. Means we get all our company purchases 20% cheaper essentially when the price is aimed at the consumer, i.e. including VAT. if you deal business to consumer then VAT isnt ideal

Also, VAT makes more sense when you are shifting goods.
If you are just selling services, not a real advantage for anyone.

I moved to 27" monitors, can't go back to 25", not sure why Dell chose to put this high res on a 25

I bought this last week and can't recommend it highly enough. It's perfect for 1440p without scaling. I always thought 27" was the minimum for 1440p, but now I realise it isn't.

Great deal. I paid this much for a U2415 not long so (massive 16:10 premium)

but did you had a chance to work on a 27 to compare?

Back up to £254.40.

Yes.

Can anyone recommend a dirt cheap graphics card that will run this at 2560 x 1440 preferably silent NB I have no intention to game on it.

It's an IPS panel. What do you expect?
Stick to your colour shift display. I'll enjoy the beautiful accurate colours provided by a calibrated IPS screen.

It's arguable whether or not there's any real noticeable difference between 1ms and 8ms. Especially when those are grey to grey times rather than a true measured response rate.

GTX750ti is indeed a good choice.

But not the one you linked to. No displayport! No 1440p over HDMI on this and no DVI connections.

I use this monitor off a 750ti (gaming not main use for me either), and it looks great. Mine is one of the EVGA ones with displayport.

When it hits £275~ (hopefully by the end of the year) I'll bite. Amazing how quick 4k has come down in price, practically caught up with 1440p.

No DVI input on the monitor.

The HDMI input on it does not support 1440p resolution.

I own one of these. Trust me, if you want 1440p, you need displayport. Look it up on tftcentral if you don't believe me.

Fair enough.

Going this thread on Reddit it doesn't seem clear cut.

Some people saying they can get 1440p over HDMI, Dell saying it does support 1440p over HDMI. Doesn't seem clear, maybe OP should reach out to Dell to clarify/be aware.

I only skimmed that thread, but I only saw people saying they had to switch to displayport to get full res.

And I wouldn't trust Dell if they say it will do 1440p over HDMI. It doesn't. I've tried it. TFTcentral couldn't get it to work either.

However, once yo do have it connected over displayport, it's an excellent panel. Can't vouch for gaming as that's not what I use it for.

Well if you read it properly there are multiple people saying they got it working over HDMI, so maybe don't say 1440p doesn't work over HDMI, it does in some cases.

What colour is The Dress on this panel?
