The newer model of this monitor or even one version up U341(7)W or U341(9)W

Also, LG warranty has horrendous stories on amazon and other websites.

Bought a lenovo p44w-10 two months ago for 800 bucks off kijiji, new in box. Very happy with it.

It's coming soon since LG (the only tv oled panel manufacturer) is opening up their market.

I'm not convinced that OLEDs are a good thing for monitors. Burn-in is a real thing, and I tend to have a lot of static images while using a computer. Maybe screensavers will be back in fashion,

Really depends what you are using it for. HDR10 is not valuable for many using it for productivity. That has a crappy stand that is not very adjustable, no VESA compatibility, no curve, not sure about the anti-glare coating. For me working in a bright room with windows the anti-glare treatment is crucial and the Dells just nail that for whatever reason. I agree that it is a good alternative though depending on what you want.

I said this monitor is older in the OP and that's true, but Dell is the #1 monitor brand in the world for a reason. Quality, longevity and good features for business especially. Their newer USB C version was available yesterday for $900, if people need newer stuff they can wait for that to go on sale again.

It doesn't have HDR 10 in real, it's just a marketing term LG uses. This monitor cannot sustain 1000 nits brightness in any circumstances..

This OCO technology from ASUS is interesting. A bit like the A-TW filter (can't remember if this it the correct name for it) that was last seen on NEC monitors several years ago. But I doubt we will see it in other than top end content creation type monitors for several years yet if at all.




Edit: my heart stopped when I saw the price of the PA32UCX ~ $5000 CDN on Memory Express.

That's the whole premise of the open-cell business model.

Anyone can use the panels, so manufacturers like Vizio or Hisense, or even bargain basement brands can buy these panels and use cost cutting / inferior electronics to drive the OLED panels making it affordable to the cheap people of RFD lol

Why put it on clearance if it hasn't been replaced?

I have owned this for about 5 years and it's still outstanding, love it. Not sure on the current pricing but you won't regret the screen itself.

lol 1160.90 before the fake savings. And they still didn't offer an appropriate price reduction. Nice one Dell!

I tried them on U2719DC, failed all the time. These coupons are exclusive.
I might be wrong there. I just remember the final cost was $775 ($750 if you count the Dell cashback received). Ebates/Rakuten was ~15% or something crazy at the time as well.

Yeah, the screen itself is great. It's missing a few features that the newer models have.

A lot of current models seem to have gone to a 1900R or lower to more closely "wrap" around your field of vision. I would pay more for that reason alone because I tend to sit closer to the monitor and I find my eyes refocusing when I look at stuff in the middle vs the edge. You also need to install some window management utilities (Dell's Display Manager isn't bad) to fine tune the snapping of the windows. I find the 4 quadrant snapping of windows to be too limiting.

The PBP feature sounds good in theory, but the monitor doesn't split itself into two 1720x1440 monitors, and if you try to display 2 devices at once, it isn't really usable at all. I was hoping I could have my Mac running on the same screen as my PC with side by side windows displayed at 1:1
