I was literally in the checkout doing the DFS 6 month no interest and got two calls... It wasn't until the second time that I looked up the number and found it to actually be Dell.

What are you guys talking about? Price still shows $1279 for me and ebates is at 10%.
Use the coupon code "10%OFFMONITOR" for another 10% off which brings it down to $1151.99 before the 10% ebates.

Trying to order the Dell Inspiron 24 5000 but no code will work with unibates enabled. Does anyone have a unidays code? I know there is one forum member that can generate them but can't remember who? Thx in advance!

Just a side note about this monitor... If playing games like the Xbox X on this monitor is your thing avoid if possible, doesn't look good at all.

Surprised so many takers of this at this price point. I'm sure it's a great monitor, but there is no way I'm dropping that kind of cash on a monitor that doesn't support at least HDR10 at this point.

This monitor is maxing out a lot of video cards in today's markets. Not including the RTX 2080ti, as we don't really know much about it with benchmarks, but on COD beta weekend, I couldn't even play on high settings or hit 120fps with a GTX 1080ti.

There are limitations, and while HDR10 is probably amazing, the monitor market is outpacing the video card market (new 4k 144hz monitor is almost useless with today's GPU's).

I've got a Ryzen 5 1600 with an Asus ROG STRIX 1070Ti. I'm in the market for an Ultrawide, and want an IPS one because TN/VA doesn't appeal to me. I will Overclock both the CPU/GPU, so what is the ceiling for FPS i can expect. I was thinking a 75-100Hz IPS monitor will be better for me than say a 120-144Hz Panel. Plus with the new focus on Raytracing, I can't see new cards hitting 100+ fps in 3440x1440p with Raytracing on for a long time

What are your guys thoughts on this?

It's fine in every way other than the lack of HDR, and the HDR is a big deal. I switched to couch PC gaming with a Corsair Lapdog a long while ago and use an XBR65X900E and the switch to HDR for games that support it convinced me to wait on buying any new monitor for the desk until the monitor market got the act together and had HDR supported monitors at a reasonable price point. They're finally starting to appear but monitors are lagging big time in this regard.

All the monitors above are good picks, but don’t expect them to match today’s HDR-compatible HDTVs. PC displays aren’t bright enough to make the most of HDR. You’ll see more detail than you would in a non-HDR monitor, but extremely bright scenes will still look washed out, and colors won’t pop as they do on a quality television. We’ve mused more on the subject already, but in the end, we suggest you pick the monitor that’s best for you overall, and treat HDR as a nice but unnecessary bonus – for now, at least.
Quoted from a digitaltrends article on the best HDR gaming monitors right now. The PG27UQ 27" (for example) carries a $2599 price tag... and other comparable monitors in size/resolution/price with HDR are freesync (less expensive than g-sync). This monitor is certainly not for everybody, YOLO!

How’s everybody liking their new monitor? Wish the stand was a bit more recessed and not so loud, takes up quite a bit of space I imagine.

Mine has quite a bit of backlight bleed in lower corners, and somewhat noticable ips glow lower left

I hear it's normal though ?
