    They have this special every once in a while. I'm tempted to hit the checkout, but the lashing I would receive may not be worth it (or maybe it would :) ).

    Depending on what you have now, the lashing could be well worth it, hell even enjoyable :) I've got the 2405 at home and one at work.

    I have a NEC 90GX right now. It does the job, but I'm just planning my upgrade strategy -
    24" monitor, Vista and then DX10 Card. Going to be an expensive year.

    That is a nice deal, but they also dropped the price of the 30" as well as made the 30" (its the 30"-HC now).

    Yes, prices will always be dropping but you have to jump in somewhere or wait forever.

    I have the older 30" non-HC monitor and it looks great. I think the new HC version was just a little more to keep the price up.

    I would like to add there is not a single dead pixel on my Dell monitor.
    For all the Dall bashing that goes on, this 30" LCD is sweet.

    :laugh: With the 30" I would definitly be looking for somewhere to sleep when it arrived! 'cause then I would need 2 high end DX10 Cards to run it.

    Still too expensive. I know Dell makes quality LCDs but I think you might find a better deal on an Acer or Viewsonic or summat.

    Here is how the conversation between my wife and I went when I wanted to get the 30" monitor ....

    Me : I want to get a new monitor but it's pretty expensive.
    Wife : How much is it ?
    Me : About $1200
    Wife : Yikes, how much have you spent on your new computer already ?
    Me : About $3000
    Wife : That's not bad! Go for it.

    Now you see one of the reasons I love my wife :)

    Well the reason they are expensive as seen in my guide is that they have a zero dead pixel policy and they use an IPS panel instead of TN (and the USB ports built into the monitor).
    However, I agree that this is very expensive.

    However, their 30" is one of the cheapest now since the HP and Apple ones are around $1500 still.

    Here's how it would go for me:

    Me: Honey, I would like to get a new monitor, but it's pretty expensive.
    Wife: How much is it?
    Me: About $1200
    Wife: You spent over $2000 for your whole computer just last year!
    Me: Yes, but honey....
    Wife: GET OUT

    Although I still love my wife as she (trys to) keeps my spending in check.

    I gotta say though you have one of the highest end 19" available.
    Those NECs are not cheap.

    Ya I know. I'm actually very happy with it, but as with any hardware, you always want the latest/greatest/biggest/fastest. I'm also very happy with my 1950xtx, but doesn't stop me from thinking "wow those 8800/2900 would be amazing" even though I know i would not see any real performance gains (with my current monitor that is).
