Big boy IPS time
on: April 26, 2012, 13:57:06 PM
Currently looking at Dell U2711s and Hazro HZ27WCs, I'm very much on the verge of pulling the trigger and putting this out on here to see if anyone has any other good shouts or yays and nays RE the above 2 :cheers:

I always recommend these guys if you're going to go Dell:

http://www.pcbuyit.co.uk/dell-ultrasharp-u2711-27inch-widescreen-flat-panel-monitor-with-premiercolor-black-p-1069.html

Good prices, no-quibble swap out dead pixel warranties and excellent customer service.

Man, this is cheaper, latest revision, but an eBay jobber, they do have great feedback 3yrs and 0 dead pixel too though :)

Decisions decisions  :yarr:

I have a U2711 which I bought from PCbuyit via Ebay, was a good bit cheaper than the list price on their site and with the same warranty etc: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-UK-Dell-Ultrasharp-U2711-27-IPS-LCD-Monitor-A10-/270964156807?pt=UK_Computing_ComputerComponents_Monitors&hash=item3f16b8e987#ht_3371wt_1265

Heard nothing but good things about them here and also at other places, so maybe worth sending them an email to ask when they are going to get the new rev in?

I also looked at the Hazro but decided to go with the Dell in the end as the glass is meant to be a bit reflective, while the Dell has a matt none reflective finish.

I looked at the Yamakasi Catleap but tbh despite being much cheaper the no dead pixel warranty, shoddy build quality and the fact you had to import from korea put an end to the thoughts :yarr:

You won’t regret it awesome panel! I really noticed the difference when I replaced my old Dell 24” with image quality and colours.

I'm already at 1920x1200 so you'll have to do better than that :lol: Don't the 27" panels go up to 2048x1536 or is that just the 30" behemoths?


Wait... I see what you mean now :drool:
