I plan on using these for First person gaming, but screen tearing/FPS isn't high on my agenda as photo editing and screen real estate is more important to me.

Comparing diagonal measurements across screens of different shapes doesn't …Comparing diagonal measurements across screens of different shapes doesn't work too well. Screens have more area for the same diagonal the closer they are to square. 29" 2560x1080 screens are best thought of as 23" 1920x1080 screens with extra width on the sides. A 27" 16:9 screen actually has more physical screen area than a 29" ultrawide.In terms of scaling Windows and programs written for it have traditionally sized things in pixels. So a character may be 5 pixels wide whether you have a screen that's 1024 pixels wide or a screen that's 2560 pixels wide. The bigger screen just fits more characters across.But this means you're limited to the amount of detail you can get out of 5 pixels. Using smaller pixels shrinks everything which helps to a limited extent as it's hard to pick out smaller flaws, but shrinking things also compromises usability.Windows has had a scaling/sizing setting that tells programs to render at some multiple of normal size for getting on for a couple of decades now but it's always been something of a chicken and the egg problem. Developers won't do the extra work to support it because nobody uses it, and nobody uses it because it's poorly supported.Things are changing a bit though. Mac OS had the same issue and Apple forced the situation a few years ago by including retina screens as standard that were unusable without scaling support and the bleed-over demand for '4K' screens from the TV world also requires support to be usable in smaller sizes (sub-40"). HiDPI is often used as the catchall term.To actually benefit from the extra pixels a program needs to explicitly support it, but anything using one of the standard windows interface toolkits will be scaled up automatically. It won't provide any quality improvements, but it will make the program the right size, instead of unusably tiny thanks to the miniscule pixels. The reason to go for a screen resolution that is 2x/200% of the sizing you want is that this is the neatest way to scale up. Going for a scaling that isn't a whole number like 1.5x (150%) will mean the scaled up programs are slightly more blurred. Similar to running at a non-native resolution, although not as bad as the underlying pixels are smaller. I would want 1920x1080 sizing on a 25" for comfortable text size at my viewing distance, so 3840x2160 would be slightly sharper than 2560x1440. Both because of the extra pixels for programs that can use them, and the perfect scaling for those that can't. On the other hand if the optimum sizing for your desk is 2560x1440 then your optimum choice would be to skip 3840x2160 and wait for 5120x2880. Although as pixels get ever smaller the differences do diminish.


Nice post, unusual for these parts.

Tearing is caused by frame rate of the game running at a different …Tearing is caused by frame rate of the game running at a different frequency to the refresh rate of the screen. A higher frequency won't prevent tearing (although a 144hz screen does allow V-sync to lock to 48hz). Generally you can avoid tearing in two ways:1. Locking the frame rate to the monitor's refresh rate. V-sync is the traditional solution but Enhanced Sync (AMD) or Fast Sync (nVidia) are better options if you're willing to spend enough on graphics cards to be able to generate a frame rate that exceeds the monitor's refresh. 2. Buy a monitor that can refresh dynamically. The technology is called variable refresh rate. There's an standard that's part of the DisplayPort 1.2a and above standard called Adaptive Sync which is supported by a lot of monitors - it's better known generally under the AMD marketing name of Freesync. I couldn't find a 25"ish 2560x1440 IPS monitor with it, but there are 24" 3840x2160 IPS and 24" 2560x1440" TN panels with it which would both be close to what you want. NVidia are currently dragging their heels on supporting it as they have their own version called G-sync that will likely only ever work with their cards. I couldn't find any 24-25" G-sync monitors that were higher than 1920x1080 regardless of LCD type.


Are you referring to Dell panels there? I've seen 24" Dell P2415Q is 3840x2160 and 24" Dell 24" Dell P2415Q is a TN panel at 2560x1440. I just wonder how the '4k' resolution would be in comparison to the 2560x1440 on the Dell U2515H. I'll have to visit some retailers, and take a look at the 3840x2160 displays, wonder if they would allow me to connect my MacBook to see how text looks etc.

EDIT: looks like the Dell P2415Q is 60hz, so isn't going to be great for games either

I was looking into the Dell S2417DG monitor to sit aside my U2515H, but it being a TN panel put me off (from the things I read).

Ruffuz18 h, 28 m ago

Great price, not sure about 24" vs 27" on 2k resolution.


"2K" resolution is closer to 1080p btw (2048x1080 if you want to get really specific).
I've had 24" Dell 1080p monitors and 27" 1440p and both are the perfect size for their respective resolution imo.

Alienware Alpha R2 at Dell for £679

Lets break the un written rule "never post a tech deal unless you want to get slatted" :-), A I7 windows system from a good company................. Personally like the Alienware … Read more

I've had multiple Alienware machines. All the 18inch laptops (they don't make them now) and 1 17inch, upgrading is a pain in the bum, so you need to buy top spec. When upgrading graphics you can buy from them and they fall in under your existing warranty. It's way easier that way.

I buy dell for 1 reason. Their warranty, I must have burned out at least 15 graphics cards 580-880s, each time dell replaced them. Knowing full well it was hyper aggressive overclocking to blame, I went through 3 I7 x90 extreme CPU,'s again aggressive overclocking, I had fans and heat syncs replaced, multiple motherboards. I have photos somewhere of the ic7 Tim actually dried up into like powder on a i7 2940 CPU, I used to call it overcooking not clocking.

In the end with the M18x R1 they gave me a 60% refund, on a 2 yr old laptop and 20% off my next one, because they didn't have the sli-680s in stock after 3 weeks waiting.

The replace an m18 (no ex) shipped with the wrong graphics card, dell refunded £200 and send me a free goodie bag (dell printer, carrycase, wireless mouse and keyboard, cap) while I waited for an either a new placement an engineer to fit the right cards.

If you ever need a company which is prone to mistakes, and kinda hard work, but will bribe you, discount you, and as long as your warranty is adhered too will keep fixing it. Then Dell is worth it.

That said, anything less than a 980 or 1060 and your asking for problems with Dell.

Heads up to anyone who bought a laptop after seeing this deal. There is now a 12% code that works on pretty much everything over £799. I bought the £1200 Inspiron (with GTX 1060) on Friday, and it got delivered Saturday.

This morning, the code reduced the same laptop to £1055. I'm just off the phone with Dell Customer Care and they have offered me a £120 refund. It's only a 10% refund, however I insisted on 12% as the current offer advertises, otherwise I would return it. She wouldn't budge from 10%, so I went ahead with the return. Called her bluff all the way through to the end, but then bottled it and just took the 10%.

Good luck guys. Phone number is 0800 587 1456.

I have owned the 9550 for 2 years when it first came out. and i tell you something best laptop i had. i even spilt red wine on the keyboard. took it apart cleaned it all myself with alcohol and it still works great amazing. Oh and im an achitect so run big programs on it

For those browsing the outlet, the prices are excluding VAT. The discounts aren't great without the coupon. You can get 10% at the regular store by haggling on chat, so the outlet isn't much cheaper.

Great find, however the code for 10% off returns 'expired' when trying to use it, despite it being advertised on the dell outlet homepage with an expiry of 14th Jan 2018?!

I had been looking for a laptop with at least 16GB RAM, i7 8th gen and an SSD in a decent laptop brand for around £800 so I was shocked to find this. I convinced my friend to get one too. The extra 10% was a great find by ‘Agharta’.

Not expired, They have at least seven left with different coloured backs.
I've spent several months looking for a quality photo editing laptop and nothing has come close to this price point.
Using the code I bought this for £722, instead of £1100.
Latest i7 processor (and quad core being crucial for photo editing). 16GB a must, and an SSD to run the programs and use as edit base with a 2TB store. The video card is average for an add on card but excellent value and most reviews are saying this is a lightning fast machine, suitable for most games if not a pure gaming machine. For doing anything else it has a monstrous amount of processing power, cannot understand why this isn't white hot.
Many thanks to WatchDog01, top spot!

It will be a custom OEM board probably by Foxconn.
As for firmware updates, that probably depends on whether Dell introduce a new model for Ryzen 2. If they do then they may well not upgrade the firmware in this to support it.
So it's a guessing game really but if this model is fairly new that improves its chances.

Such crap service, the deal was meant to last the day, but around 10:30pm they changed the price mid-payment/checkout. I really don't feel like buying crap from dell when the RRP is £200 more than everyone else.

The problem is the Acer/Asus/AOC and Viewsonic 1440p Gsync IPS monitors all use the same dodgy panel from AU Optronics, unless you get lucky you'll have to send X amount before you finally get one you're happy with.

I’m thinking of getting the 1440p Acer but I’ll get it through amazon in case =/ either that or wait for LGs new monitor since I’ve had no bad experiences with their ips monitors currently using the 29 inch ultrawide which I bought because I was originally gonna go with a vega 64 until their prices became insane for less than gtx 1080 performance so thought what the hell and got a 1080ti xD

So far, only £669 billed and no mention of the £430 VR Headset being dispatched/invoiced/billed.

This was the first thing I wanted to know before buying, here's what I got from Dell:

It is indicated there that the viewable preset area is
552.96 mm x 311.04 mm (in millimeter)
21.77 inches x 12.25 inches (in inches)

If you're like me, I can't stand monitors that are just wide for the sake of it and just have no height.

Previously had a 23" dell one which was good, but this 25" one is absolutely perfect size wise, and sure is a massive jump in clarity and so much more comfortable on the eyes.

The nearest XPS 8930 options are:£1199 - i7-8700 with a GTX1060 (still overkill if you are not playing games) and only 8gb RAM and no SSD. You could buy these yourself and upgrade for around £200 for a 250GB 850 EVO M.2 SSD and 8gb 2666MHz RAM. You would also have only 1TB storage which is enough for many but not enough for me.£1499 - i7-8700 with a GTX1070 (massive overkill if you are not playing games) and 16Gb RAM and 256Gb SSD and a 4TB drive. For me the extra £300 for the extra 3TB storage, memory and SSD alone would be worth it. The much more powerful graphics card is an added bonus. You could look at an Inspiron but even the most expensive model at £850 has a 7th gen i7, only 128Gb SSD (really not enough) and only 8Gb RAM.At the other end of the scale you can get exactly what you want with an Alienware Aurora R7 as you can choose the exact config that you want. However, to get your desired spec would be more than £1500 and you would have a less powerful graphics card than the XPS at £1499.Do you really need an 8th gen i7?The new i5-8400 8th gen is more powerful than last years i7-7700. (According to CPU benchmarks: https://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html) If you go for an i5-8400 then you can get an XPS for £900 with 8Gb RAM and no SSD and upgrade that.



Thanks for the lengthy reply.

The only reason I want an i7 8th gen is purely to future proof it a little longer as I will be keeping for quite a few years.

I just keep seeing nice shiny new desktops and as I like shiny new hardware once in a while, keep thinking I NEED one as opposed to merely just wanting one.

My current system is original apart from upgraded RAM (8GB > 16GB) and added 256GB SSD and does pretty much what I want most of the time (adding an SSD a while back gave it a new lease of life). LOL

So in light of what you said, I might just keep my current system a bit longer.

Thanks again.
