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.

Thanks for the input there softpurple. I wrongly assumed you would get the 3 year warranty with this, however this IS a better deal than ITCSales who only offer a OEM 3 month warranty and the option to extend this for 1 year for an extra £70.

It is a shame people are posting this as cold because for the desktop estate you are getting this is a GREAT deal. ( I admit it IS expensive, but you do get a LOT of pixels for the price).
As far as I am aware A06 is the latest revision shipping.
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.
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.

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 context of your comment isn't clear or helpful to anyone reading it and could just lead to confusion over what I stated about Dell warranties which is fact over what you claim which is your stated personal experience.
Those voting cold must be the usual lot of people who see a £199 ebuyer desktop as equal to a high specced gaming pc and vote accordingly because they don't understand the difference in quality and specifications. Too many good deals are shot down by this ignorance. Hot from me, even though it's out of my price range. I'll be going for the U2711 instead.
