I'm going to be honest with you. I really don't like you. You're always being a jerk. Always have to have a different opinion on every single matter. Well here you go mr. smart guy. You think $729 isn't "lower" compared to the standard $1100 market prices? Let's see...current monitors we are buying with Zero-dead pixel (which is still a grade A-) with multi-input is $489:
Now let's see. $489 --> $729. $240 Price different. Advantages:
1) Don't have to deal with risk of buying from overseas
2) Doesn't cost you $100 and weeks to ship it back to exchange it should there be a problem with it
3) Actual Grade A+ Monitor with literally 0 messed up pixels and on the spot replacement in such a case
4) A proper stand that supports the monitor + Cable Management
5) Proper VESA support without fiddling around
6) 4 Port USB 2.0 Hub (cable included)
7) Proper American power plug standard
8) Includes displayport cable
9) Having bought from a reputable brand, with 3 years actual local Warranty through HP.
10) $729 is the MSRP. You can buy it even cheaper...newegg.com has it for $679. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824176242&Tpk=ZR2740w
) Making the price difference between the monitors just $190.
If you expect a big name company like HP to make this product available, with all the things I mentioned above, with less than a $190 price markup compared to what we're paying...then you're absolutely bonkers. This was a phenomenal deal when it was 100hz monitors. And scribby's hoping to source the parts to make it 100hz again. But as of right now, for a $190 price difference and what you get by buying from Dell....honestly, you're an imbecile for expecting the price to be any lower at this early stage in the introduction of these panels into the market.
