    Get deliveries to work I say !!!

    Avoid the hassle !

    But it will be worth it when you get it.
    Even the missus noticed the difference in the monitor!

    Its like watching a dvdrip vs HD content

    Mine apparently tried to get delivered today when I was at work. Was still at build complete last time I looked grrrrr.

    They NEED a meat bag to sign for it or it'll go back to Dell. Have to go pick it up on monday :mad::mad::mad:

    heh

    Mine just whinges constantly until i tell her to get on my horse

    Though the monitor is rather epic, i can see the AG coating though, kinda kills the entire thing.

    Two orders of mine were with local courier and estimated to be 6th/9th of August. Both orders (4 monitors) showed up this morning before work :)

    Two more on the way still in build complete phase (or whatever it says), scheduled for 10-August. Gives me 4 weeks to train my brain to ignore bezels :wired:

    Also ive just noticed half of the screen is miscoloured compared to the rest, and depending on what colour selection its either flashing red dots or a blue hue.

    What do you guys think?

    lol, might want to crop photos that you upload to forums. Not everyone will have the same resolution to view it fully. ;)

    Righto, ill have a look in a sec

    this is why god invented scroll bars, its for lesser beings who dont sport the resolution.

    And i usually scale the pics but this was an exception as i needed it this size for a reason

    Already planning to.

    Was asking peoples thoughts on it, so long as you dont have a dark background you cannot see it, and not noticeable while gaming or watching a movie

    Copie, is your miscoloured on the right side? And does it look like it is very slightly darker than the other side? I think I have that problem on mine . The miscoloured section only goes for about 5cm from the edge though.
