Just wanted to let everyone know, that this deal WAS NOT A PRICING ERROR . We just got a mailing from Dell at our office, saying that on certain days this month, they are going to randomly discount items on their website to a ridiculously low price. TODAY IS ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE DAYS . So be on the lookout on their website. The mailing said that it could be anything in any category. The only thing that it was certain aboutm was that today another deal would take place. So eveyone, who missed out before, you might be back in the game. Good luck!
OMG. Post the whole email dude, what days does this happen?!

Could someone please explain how PIP works again? Someone stating that it allows you to view from a seperate signal (using analog and PIP using digital) but I read elseware that you cannot do such a thing. Stating that they wish thats how it works. So i'm pretty confused now.

This monitor is so nice. :( If anyone wants to sell one here, pm me please.

My HDTV has PIP. I can use DVI (digital) as the main display and my television (analog) on the reduced picture in the corner of the monitor fine. Or I can do it vice versa.

the cruel cruel joke sir_skippy is probably playing on us, or just someone who works for dell and trying to get people to their site :D

Haha that doesent make sense that they would do that. They would at least say something about it on the site. Lets email dell and see what they have to say.

Not that you'll believe me any more than the people who actually did partake in this... I saw the site... and then I read the little blurb saying Dell reserved the right to cancel if it was a pricing error. So I shrugged it off thinking nothing would come of it. Now I'm kicking myself in the butt. I -did- see the site and it -was- at the price everyone's claiming... unfortunately I didn't order a couple for myself.

Why would the number one PC manufacturer in the world have to worry about getting people to their site? :rolleyes: I highly doubt that's it... more like trying to excess stock. :) Not saying he's telling the truth either though.

I have the 2005 model, using the DVI input. The PIP will only use the S-video and composite. It wouldn't let me do it with the analog VGA. Which I was really hoping it would, I've got my file server connected to the VGA. But still, its only a few button presses away.

well this deal, another deal, doenst really matter

at an average, the monitor was $450 before the price break, and $160 after, so they saved ~$300. Now imagine they dropped the 2405 or the 2407 to about $490 - $520, everyone would jump on it, cuz I know I would...

eBay's always flooded with these, I really don't think the number of people that got in on this deal are having a large effect on that market. I know some people bought large quantities (I still don't believe the guy about the 20 unit order), but it seems that a fair amount of those that got in on this deal just wanted a monitor or three for themselves. You have to remember that this was available for about 20 minutes, it's not like it sat on slickdeals and fatwallet all day

$70 - $80 shipping. LMAO

Anyone who has 20 of these will have a hard time getting rid of them IMO at the asking prices on Ebay. If you've invested $3200 bux and want to get about $200 of it back- and live in the Conroe, TX area. PM me.
LOL

They'll get $300.00 (plus shipping). If you bought 10 and only wanted one for yourself, you'd only have to sell 3 of them at $300 + s/h to pretty much pay for all of the extras. The bill isn't due for at least 30 days, probably 45+....plenty of time for the lucky bastards who bought them.

Is that monitor that much better than this one that is $287.99 AR with free shipping from the egg?

can we PLEASE leave this thread alone? I seriously doubt anyone who was lucky enough to get one is going to just sell it to anyone on this forum for less than ebay's going rate, so please, stop asking so this thread will disapear, along with my disapointment for not being my usual hawk like self on this forum and missed out big time.
