only two of the three promo codes are being taken. just got bait and switched. i entered the three promo codes successfully and then bought the $400 bogo $75 dell gift card deal. went and entered my $400 gift card in my $385.50 + tax order and the total suddenly jumped by ~$160 and one of the codes stopped working. i'm now fighting customer service and will ultimately be trying to cancel the card if nothing works. i'd call this deal dead. unofficially of course- mr7rizt4n

There have been several posts bashing this monitor because it's a 21:9 aspect ratio. It's a wider rectangle. Most of the movies that still show top and bottom bars when played on standard 16:9 monitor will play perfectly, no bars, on a 21:9 monitor. It's why they are often marketed as "Cinema Displays".

It's not as wide as 2 regular screens, it's about 1/3 wider. That can be very useful for Outlook, Games, Spreadsheets, Charting, Video Editing, Project Management, and of course... Movies Smilie

It also may work well with the WIndows 8 "1/3 screen" metro windows.

There have been several posts bashing this monitor because a 27" screen with 2560 x 1440 resolution has more real estate.

[PPI = Pixels Per Inch is more important than total pixels. A higher PPI means smaller pixels, and that means everything is smaller. In particular, words. If your PPI is high enough that you're setting your fonts bigger and reading the web at over 100% zoom, you just wasted your money and slowed your video card down for no gain.]

Display SizeDisplay ResolutionPixels Per Inch
22"1920 x 1080100.13
23"1920 x 108095.78
24"1920 x 108091.79
27"2560 x 1440108.79
29"2560 x 108095.81

This is why the "more pixels is better" point is sometimes correct, sometimes not.

The Dell 29" in this thread is about as easy to read as a your average 23" screen. It pretty much nails the "best" PPI for most folks sitting at a desk staring at a screen.

A 27" 2560 x 1440 monitor would be significantly harder to read. Might be more comfortable for some folks, might be nearly impossible for others to work with. It is NOT automatically "better".

The exception to this would be if you're cutting code and need all the pixels you can get. If that's your primary application, think twice.

Current wiki post oversells this monitor. Paragraph in blue brackets is particularly suspect. Rife with opinions stated as facts.

Dang I paid $570 for the 2713 last year.

Oh this is that goofy ultra wide one.

If you are going to go 2560, why not get that little extra height out of it, 1440 vs 1080

This how you could even sweeten the deal:

http://slickdeals.net/f/6063634-New-Dell-eGift-Card-with-Promo-Bonus-Buy-a-400-GC-Get-a-75-Bonus-eGift-Card?v=1

Buy egift card 400+75. Apply $400 + 103.99 (credit card) to check out for this product. Don't forget dell small business 4% cb

Since $75 is considered as promotional gift card (expire in 90 days), it can not be combined with $400 together. Go to Dell home (8% cb) buy $100 physical gift card with $75 + $25(credit card).

If my math is correct, you will end up with 75/(503.99+25) = 14.2% discount plus your cb.

Good luck!

Not exactly, you can only use $75 to buy $100 physical card (with $25 from your cc). $100 will be snail mailed in a week.

The $100 physical card has no expiration, it could be used later. The egift card can ONLY be purchased with your CC. Hope I made myself clear.

Protip: buy this on Win7, then use [Windows Key] + [Arrow Key] to maximize/snap.

Though that's one case where the benefit of instead getting 2 smaller monitors is obvious (more snapping points).

Wonder if you could make two virtual monitors? *that* would be cool.

Beware! Sometimes they cancel the order when you use promo egift card to buy a gift card. They did couple of times to me and never returned the funds back to promo card.
