MSRP for this is actually $1400, so it's a pretty hot deal
However, I don't think I could go back to a 24", being on a 30" now.
Not at all. 1600p area resolutions weren't more than a tiny niche until the Korean and cheap 27" 1440p panels came around. And that was with 30" monitors being available around for several years. They still are generally rare in most cases even. Make no mistake that 4k is gearing for widespread adoption, that is preposterous at 1k and higher pricing when most people even here run a 300 dollar or so gpu, let alone the mass market and general gamers. Heck 1080 only has finally become widespread and I was on a 1680x1050 monitor back in 2004.
no problems here going directly to dells site and finding it.I can't find it anywhere on the Dell's site? Can somebody hook me up with a direct link?
$1400 for 24" monitors is not going to encourage mass 4K adoption anytime soon...
Especially since I personally think 4K at 24" is a huge waste of money; I wouldn't buy 4K on anything less than a 30" Monitor or a 60" TV.
Pretty much this. Too big of a res for a tiny size screen. Also saying to your local store "Need 3-Way SLI to power my 24" monitor"
Same, you can only go bigger with monitors!
Also need 4k over hdmi to be standard. I have a 1600p monitor that requires dual-link DVI or Displayport. Unfortunately, laptops with displayport are far and between. I am basically limited to Lenovo / Dell / HP / Apple.
increased DPI is more important to me that screen size. Don't get me wrong, I love my U3011 but I find that I'm much better competitively (think BF3) on a smaller screen. Also, remember the first time you saw a phone with a "retina" display? All of a sudden I noticed how grainy all lesser phone displays were.
This product isn't for everyone but to me it is a dream come true. For years I have been discussing with people about how DPI is more important than actual resolution. I doubt I will drop my 30" entirely for this since windows gui support will likely be terrible for the foreseeable future.

-who brags to store employees?
-they don't think you're cool when you tell them stuff like that. Talk is cheap and there are more bull shitters than honest people in this hobby IMO.
Have fun trying to read anything on a 24" at 4K.
