Great price. So tempted to pull the trigger on this!

Do it! Trust me its a brilliant monitor!!

Good price, but 1080P is too low res. for me. I wish more manufactures would make 1920x1200 montors.
However, my next monitor is going to be 2560x1440.

great price, been looking at one of these for awhile and this is the cheapest I've seen it, but now considering a benq xl2411t or the eizo foris fs23333 for gaming but can't decide. have some heat though.

I'm using the Benq xl2411t. It's a good monitor, though the colours aren't perfect. The 1ms latency speeds sound great, but I don't play competitively so they're a bit wasted on me!

One highlight of the monitor ia that you can use a small program called Lightboost to hack the backlight into strobing whilst in 2d mode. what this means is zero motion blur! Seriously awesome bonus, I can't emphasise what a difference this makes, although there are disadvantages to it in that you get some artifacts, like varying black brightness on screen.

Hope that's of some use to you!

The BenQ is about the most overrated monitor I have ever seen. Picture quality is awful for the price.

Great monitor, however this seems to only have 1 year warranty and apparently may not get everything with its original box. Probably worth buying it brand new from amazon for £199 and getting 3 years dell warranty.

Agree, I have had xl2411t for a year now and regret it. Yes It is fast and well built, but picture quality looks really poor, not even close to IPS monitors for half the price.

Faaj is right.
This is a good deal from a decent seller but based on the Amazon comparison of pricing between this and a brand new one where if you pay an extra £15 you get a rock solid warranty from Dell and that is the better deal in my view as well.
Fixing or repairing monitors can be difficult, expensive and take time but in my experience Dell provide excellent service with respect to their monitors.

The rotated side by side mount looks impressive -

I agree with faaj , spend the extra 20 quid and get the 3 yrs warranty with Dell. Monitors are imho a dodgy expense when refurbished
9 times out of ten its due to the controlling chipset and they always seem to end up faulty again within 6 months. Based on years of having business monitors repaired under warranty. You might be lucky and get a return but is 20 quid not worth 3 yrs peace of mind.
Soz cold for me

WOW!

I have just got off the phone with NRG and they told me that these are actually still factory sealed. They said the only difference was the warranty.

Guys, what's so special about this monitor that you are willing to pay £180 for a 1080p IPS panel?
This looks over-priced to me.
I own 23" DELL IPS monitor BTW, so I'm not against DELL.

If IPS is your thing, I'd much rather get a cheaper LG monitor.
And if you want VA, then Benq do some good VA monitors whose image quality should be superior to the IPS panel used in this screen.

For me, this monitor would be good value, at £130, for 1 year warranty. I'd pay £30 extra for a 3 yr warranty.
Anything more than that and there are better monitors out there for lower prices.

Voted cold.

It's a Dell and based on their poor reliability and attrocious customer service this is a cold deal. There are lots of better monitors made by better companies out there.

Just look on youtube and search for "DELL SUCKS" and see for yourself.

Spoken like someone who has never owned a Dell monitor.

Recently got the Dell p2414h ips from nrg screen only at £89 which I think is a much better deal!

Colour reproduction is amazing and no input lag or flickering when gaming. Slight amount of backlight bleeding in the bottom corner but not noticeable really!

I got a stand off eBay for £20 so altogether £110 and the screen looked brand new and seemed factory sealed too!

I have heard a lot of people saying the NRG deal is vastly superior and that you should get that instead of this u2414h. That NRG 24" p2414h is a great deal, however this is too, let me explain:

Like you said, the p2414h for £89 has no stand, so adding a stand for around £20-30 will bring it to £110-£120. However if you want the highly regarded original dell stand with the p2414h, NRG sell the monitor with its stand for £139:

nrgit.biz/pro…817

For £120-£140 your getting a great monitor however it only has 1 year warranty with NRG.

This deal the u2414h, has a better screen, which also comes hardware calibrated from the factory which is great if your like me and dont have a calibrator on hand. It has HDMI, displayport, displayport mini and ability to daisy chain not to mention USB 3.0, you can see on the review here:

tftcentral.co.uk/rev…htm

Also its brand new with 3 years Dell warranty. So for £60 odd more your getting a better monitor which is brand new with 3 years warranty. So its just up to you whether you need/want a better monitor.

Got this monitor for Xmas. Very stylish and looks great with a Mac mini

Oh wait, i just got a reply from NRG, as hes not allowed to post on here:

Going to buy 3, great price! If I were to buy one with the three year warranty, is it tied to the serial no. or would I be able to claim if any of the three broke?

I agree completely.

I paid something like £118 for my Acer V243H 24" 1080p monitor brand new around 2 years ago - I don't believe it is IPS but it doesn't seem to suffer the problems associated with a TN display. The viewing angles are decent and the colour reproduction is good. Also, I don't understand why you would want any higher viewing angles since you don't look at screens from side-on lol.

Is the screen able to rotate in the stand 90 degrees? (for portrait viewing) thanks
Edit: yes it can. tempted...

Spoken like someone who has never owned a Dell monitor.


I paid £720 for a U2711 and had trouble with it and a fight to get anything done about it. I eventually got a U2713, which I'm using now but dell don't give a damn about the fact that the card reader doesn't work, the USB doesn't work and it can't be recalibrated because it needs USB for the calibration software to work.

I should also mention that Dell cannot (have no facilities to) repair their own monitors, nor do they have any service information to assist an engineer with any attempted repair. This is because they buy them in from China or where ever labour is cheapest this month. Their idea of giving assistance is to "direct you to our website where you can purchase a replacement".

But, hey, don't listen to me because having been through two different "premium" models and nearly a grand in cash I obviously know Jack about Dell crap. I hope do you buy one because I can't think of anyone more deserving of the aggravation associated with buying from Dell.

Sorry you have had this very poor experience but that does not make it either typical or what others might expect.
I have also owned and used 'premium' Dell monitors and have had nothing but excellent service from them to date.
You will rarely get your own monitor back but more likely a previously repaired 'swapper' unit as part of the collect and return service.
Almost all monitors on sale here in the UK are made abroad and so are usually sent back for repair or refurbishment in bulk because that is how the economics of that business work.
You can undertake limited repairs yourself and some parts are available but I agree it can be very tricky and invalidate your warranty.
They don't want you to do that and hence expect you to use their warranty service.
And frankly if I needed to spend a grand on a monitor my first port of call would be Eizo and not Dell as it happens.

I use a U2713H as my main monitor. Bought the BenQ RL2455HM for gaming. The colours are awful. My TV looked better as a second monitor. I sent it back after 2 days.

TLDR; Get an IPS.

So, why are you sorry? I didn't blame you. If it wasn't for your last sentence I would have accused you of being a Dell employee.

You may have had a good experience with Dell but that does not make it either typical or what others might expect.

Indeed and neither does your particular experience have anymore relevance or weight either so perhaps you could refrain from sharing it with us then based on your argument.
And don't you ever accuse me of being an employee of any company on here either!
I don't take kindly to cheap shots like that from anybody you included.

I can't see any mention of 3 year warranty on Amazon. You can purchase 3 years square trade insurance, but thats it.

Having read a few threads online, people have had difficulties getting Dell honoring the 3 year warranty if item was purchased from reseller..

Yes i've had problems in the past where ive bought a dell monitor from amazon and when ive contacted dell for a warrenty claim they insisted i give them a dell order number and without it its like banging your head against a brick wall. In the end they did swap it out but i had to email them proof of purchase first.

Normally once you have found the service tag or express service code it is quite straightforward to obtain warranty support.
They will of course expect you to provide proof of purchase if you didn't buy it from them but that is to be expected.
Dell kit bought new from Amazon themselves will have the appropriate basic warranty for that product type.

Hot deal, ordered 2 to replace my existing setup
I am selling an iiyama prolite 24" LED E2472HDD if anyone is interested, for pickup or delivery by arrangement in the London area

Nearly 11 quid for delivery though, it might be a couple of quid less but I'd rather pay Amazon the extra than feed a company that hides their real prices behind ridiculous delivery costs.
