no coupon needed. I called dell and told them I wanted the sale price but didnt have the coupon number... the sales person checked with his supervisor and they gave me the 25% off ......

final price was 599.25 + tax. ( free shipping )

I'll post pics and stuff when it comes.

thanks [H]ard Forum peeps.

Doh, and I payed 630.00:( I am too impatient with waiting. Oh well, 630 still is a good price for that monitor. Just sucks being on a college budget, gotta save money for booze, and oh yeah food + rent... :D

That's an amazing deal. If this monitor show up on the European market it will cost at least twice that.

Whats the code for 25% off the LCD? I dont see one in that thread.

I believe each code is unique and one time use. So either you have to get it through the Dellf game or find one on the thread i posted previously or this thread http://www.slickdeals.net/forums/showthread.php?threadid=54792&postid=0 that has not been used.

Or you could do what dmize did by calling up Dell requesting for the sale discount.

I got the 25% off LCD on my 5th (and last!) try. The extra $35 should cover the tax, so that's nice too. My first four attempts got me $550 off HD Plasma, 25% off desktop over $1500, $200 off desktop $1200 or higher, and 25% off laptop. That used up all three of my e-mail addresses and both my wife's. Do you think it's worth waiting until after Thanksgiving to see if the price drops? The coupons are all good until 1/5/05.

I couldn't find the info on the dell site, but can the 2005FPW rotate 90 degrees?

Oh, and can Canadians get the 25% off for the LCD as well? The Dellelf game seems to be only for people living in the US...

Try one of the coupons posted after putting it in your basket and see if it works.

If you try it out and it works, please let the rest of us know :D
I'd rather wait than anything, but if there's 25% off, might as well make the jump.

The $35 off coupons don't work at dell.ca

Can somebody try a 25% off coupon on dell.ca or PM me a working one?

They don't work. The best price you can get is 15% by signing up for the Dell.ca newsletter and 5% stackable for being a student of certain universities for pre-tax price of $806.69

Well! I guess I could try yelling at them and complain how the people in the states not only get a lower base price (using current exchange rates $799 US is about $951 CAN, not $999 as the listed price), but they also get the 25% of coupons!!

Wonder if that actually works... I can clearly see the arguments for it as well as the arguments against it.

Again, if you do try it and it works, please let us know ;)

Here is a very good review and lots of pics-->link

compared to a Dell 2001FP:
index.php




edit:
Does anyone know how this monitor perform on lower resolutions (1280x768)?? Because I was planning to get this monitor ( or the samsung widescreen) with a tunerbox along side (avermedia tv box 9). I could ask on the other forum but I'm too lazy to register.

they usually perform quite well, but you wont have the perfect edges that you get with the native resolutions.

It has picture-in-picture, so the tuner box will work quite nicely for a lil tv while you're surfing. Since the resolution is so darn high, you'll have plenty of room for tv viewing.

also, after you purchase it email Dell and ask for your education discount.

I've scored twice using this technique.

Hehe Thanks for your advice. I'm affraid that (discount) won't work since this monitor isn't available yet in Europe. Here in Holland we have to pay a lot of taxes. For example: the Dell 2001FP is 659 euro's. +19% BTW (VAT) would be 750 euro's in total. There's no coupon system, education discount whatsoever.

You guys are lucky over there :D

edit: 784 euro's in total!

Just ordered the 2005FPW for the $639.00 price. I couldn't get the $35.00 stackable cupon to work, which is a shame as it would have almost covered the sales tax ($44.74). But anything under $700.00 is a pretty good deal.

I have tried playing the dellelf game last night and this morning but still no 25% percent coupon for me after many tries.

Anyone willing to PM me an unused code? I want to order today and it would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone want to help a brother out and PM me a 25% coupon for this monitor. My 23" Widescreen Gateway LCD crapped out couple weeks ago and this deal is too good to turn up. I played that damn dellf game for a half hour and still no luck. Someone PLEASE hook me up.

Will someone with a 2005FPW please measure the actual screen size? I am just curious to see how much smaller it is than my 23" widescreen paper weight that has a screen size of almost 20" x 12". Thanks!

Wow, after an hour of waiting, and going thru two Dell reps who I couldnt understand, I still havent gotten to customer service to talk to them about taking the $45 off. All any of them could do is cancel my order, but then I couldnt use the 25% off coupon again.

I cant seem to find a direct number to Dells customer service, just the usual run around on their website.

Just ordered mine yesterday with a 25% off LCD coupon. Play the Dellelf game 100 times and you'll get one too :) Fortunately they don't make you validate your email, so you can just hit the back button after not getting the one you want and change 1 letter of the email and try again, lol. I used refer a friend each time I tried so 5 tries per account I had to create... which ended up being somewhere close to 50+ tries.
