Well it came at 10AM this morning, so will check it out this evening :cheers:

I'll expect to hear that you came this evening then :thumbup:

I fully expect HD adult movies to be terrifying.

The good news is its an A12, so an even newer revision that advertised the bad,


DOA, only half the screen works.


Why do I bother, why why why.

Just think the next one is likely to be faultless ;D

I sent back two screens with one dead pixel each before I was satisfied. Only the best

mcscomuk on eBay have done nothing but jerk me around and fob me off saying I need to ring Dell as they can sort it next day, I come home from work early specifically to get the details off the box and ring Dell, 5-7 days they say.

I rang up PC buyit who are now £30 more expensive, they only have the rev a10s in.

Asked for a full refund from mcscomuk, I guess it wasn't meant to be which is a shame as it looked a lovely monitor.

I dunno really, it was cash in my account not credit card, might just slowly haemorrhage the money on booze and women.

Or just wait for somebody else to sell the latest panel who isn't this liar.


Both good.

Replacement arrived this morning so I can try once again when I finish work, my guess is several dead pixels on this one :-X

It's hard to guage the scale until I look at your screen vs keyboard compared to my 24" panel, then it hits home. 'Tis a beauty 8)

Glad you got it sorted!  :)

I would guess you were on the brink of sorting your desk out just before you open the box? like I was! ...Hipflasks and silver skirting board FTW!  :ptu:

New keyboard and mouse next on the agenda?  :P

Few months shy of 10 years later, still using the aforementioned Dell monitor daily, both keyboard and mouse remain unchanged, letters fading on keyboard, text completely gone on mouse :rofl:

edit- quite a bit has else has changed but the pinboard is familiar to what it is now and the orange temperature egg thing is still there :cheers:
