[Dell] Dell S2718D 27" IPS 1440P 60HZ Ultrathin Monitor w/ USB-C ($276.29)

*** LOOKS LIKE DEAL IS DEAD FOR NOW ***

*** LOOKS LIKE DEAL IS DEAD FOR NOW ***

$306.99 on Dell.

$276.29 with the code 10%OFFMONITOR or Unidays.

Also add 3% Dell cash back and 2% ebates for additional savings.

BB has this for $799.99. If they accept the PM, it's $257.69 with the 10% difference.

-----

Panel Type - IPS
Native Resolution - 2560x1440 @ 60Hz
Brightness - 300 cd/m²
Contrast Ratio - 1000:1 / 8000000:1 (dynamic)
Response Time - 8 ms (normal); 6 ms (fast)

Things to note:
* Semi-glossy due to a matte layer under the glass
* HDR not really useful due to lack of brightness
* Only one HDMI 2.0 output, no DP at all
* No speakers, but there is an audio out jack
* No VESA mounting due to the dock
* Three years of advanced exchange warranty

Excellent monitor for casual usage at this price point IMO. Screen size is perfect for 1440p and one of the best looking monitors with its thin bezels.

Even better if you have a Macbook or a Windows ultrabook with USB-C as this monitor has a USB-C port with 45W of power delivery. This means you can plug a single cable to the monitor's hub to charge and display your laptop.

Some decent reviews out there all done when this monitor retailed over $600. At $276, you really can't go wrong.

This is not really a product marketed towards competitive gamers, people that would require something greater than 6ms of response time.

But I did use to play CS:GO competitively on a U2414H and that had equal response time.

Looking for the new monitor, but this one may require bigger table, as all wires are connected to the dock from the back side. :-(

Can't think of a way that is possible without looking ridiculous. All the inputs are on the stand and can't see VESA mounting points on the back.

BB denied saying they can't pricematch the manufacturer website.
