    Don't trust the date in the email, the one from the status check thing is much more reliable.

    It said a similar thing for me when I ordered some 2210's but they came after like 3 days.

    Status check from what I read can be done 3 days after you submit the order.

    I was anxious and tried checking with multiple combination's for several minutes till I read it >.<

    id go another one if I had the desk space but I dont. I mean when you look at it 48hours ago if you had to buy one without a coupon it was $1200. Today you can get 2 for $1358 its amazing.

    Probably wont find this kinda deal for at least another year, if you cant use it you can always transfer the warranty to someone else. Many thanks to Evo6!

    Could someone please measure the height of the LCD (viewing) area? Thanks :) There was a site that let you put in aspect ratios and sizes etc but now I can't find it :(

    Hey guys not sure if anyones interested but if your interested in abusing your CC a bit more you can get this as well.


    Logitech MK250 Wireless Desktop 3 Year Limited RTB $42

    use the code W507GSC7QVHL96

    brings it down to $26.81 delivered

    Pretty good in my mind for a spare keyboard and mouse + the 3 year warranty is a bonus.

    i use that keyboard and mouse at work. have to say its well worth the $26 if not the full $42

    just slugged my CC with a U2711 also >_<

    going on holiday next weekend doesnt help this haha


    edit; actually this 4day sale is pretty good. can get a 3008WFP and a U2711 for the normal price of a 3008WFP

    If someone wanted to do a cheapass Eyefinity would any 19" widescreen at 1440x900 arranged in portraits on both sides of the U2711 work? This would theoretically give me 4360x1440 total res?

    I was looking at the Samsung 943BW+ dimensions; it seems as though the Samsung would be ~1.1cm taller than the U2711. Could anyone see a problem with this?
