    Sure is hard to resist! When i ordered a pair of mine a few weeks ago, i ordered on Friday morning and i got them Tuesday Midday (the coming week) :D Was very happy with the service, but i had hoped for a phone call as i wasn’t sure if someone was going to be home.

    So what happens if they dont call you and there is no one home when they deliver?

    Not sure, i think they leave a note to organise delivery. I recall some person had their monitors left at the front door (which was a surprise).

    That is a surprise coz they need a signature.
    Imagine they left it and it gets stolen. You call dell 3 days later asking when it's getting delivered

    I didn't think I'd notice that much of a difference over the 22" I had previous. I'm quite happy with this indeed :)

    Now to resist buying a second! :Paranoid:

    I will when im not so dam tired :s

    I must say though anyone considering buying these monitors wont be disappointed! They feel WAY bigger than me x2 22" and have virtually no backlight bleeding which im rather amazed at. And for the angle issue isnt noticable at all really, unless im at some obscure angle...

    The neatness of your desks puts me to shame... :upset:

    I must say the colour out of the box really isnt that bad! Some people have said its really bad but i dont think its that bad. However i havent really configured it to much yet.

    I'm curious to see the colour replication for Professional Print work, eg what it looks like on a calibarted screen vs quality print work.

    Guess a new special is about to pop up...

    @ $296 last week they're going to have to pull something out of the bag to beat that price!

    Or so a lot of people hope. Got mine yesterday, I suck at calibrating colour in my monitors, what settings is everyone using for colour brightness and contrast?
