I've seen this model of 24" IPS monitor reduced several times by dell by 150 off their price. At the moment it is $349 delivered which seems like an amazing deal for the quality of this screen. Im definitely going to be buying this monitor some time in the next year or so, would you expect the price to come down below the special of $349 in that time? Or should I get it now?

I paid around that (quite a bit less actually, as CL gave me a very good deal) for an older 23" version (U2311H, and only 1920x1080, not 1920x1200) about 8 months ago, so it is probably a very good price. But I guess their prices are dropping slowly. They must be insane or something to think that anyone would save $5 to get the 23" version over the 24" version right now (it is about 7 mm wider, but almost 37 mm higher, by my calculations).

Playtech had it at $329 today. I bought one last year for $407 and don't regret it.

Yeah I specifically want 16:10 aspect and a good quality IPS instead of an averge TN panel. If you're staring at the monitor every minute of using the computer you may aswell get a good one right.

Definitely. I got mine because I wanted an IPS for graphical work – mainly optimising PNG sizes for on the web. But it is a very good monitor for anything else too!

Not to revive an old thread, but I decided that using this one was just as good as starting another thread:
http://www.trademe.c...n-621292325.htm (this is absolutely not going for that cheap)
http://www.trademe.c...n-620319591.htm

I don't intend to get either, but I'm posting here in case anyone else is interested. But unless I recognise a username I'm going to make sure the first one goes for a decent price(at least $250).

Damn I'd be keen if I already had a U2412M. I don't think I could have two different monitors though, it'd bug me forever.

Thanks for these, I'm looking for another monitor at the moment. I'll probably bid on them if they don't go too high. Please don't bid them up :P
