Ohh I saw the thread but I can't seem to find the actual product on the Dell website still..? How are you even finding the product?? rolleyes.gif :\

EDIT: Also let me know how it is when you get it and your opinions.

Is the Dell really lacking in appearance? They both have the same LG panel. The LG has a modern looking stand, but it's worthless in terms of functionality. The Dell has a decent looking stand that is outstanding as it's fully-adjustable (doesn't matter to me bc I have an Ergotron arm, but for most is a HUGE bonus).

Yeah the stand is the reason I was considering switching till I saw the side comparisons of the photo on an chinese thread... the actual monitor size--even withstanding that Dell is using LG's panel--is just ridiculous at 2015, the thickness is like looking at a crt tv all over again :|.

EDIT: Though with a nicer bevel.. And either way i still can't seem to see the product on dell's website frown.gif.

Nevermind I finally found it... Now I just wish the back of it looked/side of it looked as good as the front on the dell! That thickness... But depending on features I'll probably switch not to mention price :\.

The Dell weighs 18.6lb versus the LG at 17.2lb, so overall not a huge variance. When considering the "thickness" you have to consider that they are curved panels so inherently the front-most to the back-most is going to be wider than a traditional thin flat screen.

Maybe I am just missing it (?), but I don't see much different and I'm usually pretty picky.

you have to go to this link for dell epp http://www.dell.com/learn/us/en/6099/campaigns/segmentor-usmpp?c=us&l=en&s=eep&cs=_eep&redirect=1 and then search for the monitor
add to your cart and then apply the discount codes on the other thread. (if they are still good).
Also sign up for dell advantage for free shipping.
If it asks for your company name just put your name. I ordered mine through a chat rep because I was not getting free shipping (didn't know about dell advantage) and when he put the order through he had my company name as just my last name , first name lol


I will definitely post how I feel about it when it arrives. It actually shipped today! smile.gif

I do think it looks a little bulkier in the back than the LG but that's cause the LG is shaped somewhat weird. The Samsung is bulkier in the back as well. Those pictures are definitely a lot better than DELLs website haha. The thing I like about the LG are the glossy bottom bezel and the silver back and sides. It also has the brushed fake metal look in the back which I like. The Dell looks more professional and the LG looks more "Apple like" for lack of a better term lol. Either way though most of us are not going to see the back, the stand on the dell is way better (I hope it has a metal base) but I might be using my arm mount anyways, and the front is pretty similar.
The stand on the LG is metal which I like a lot so I am hoping it is metal on the dell as well. Even if I don't use it it just feels more premium and makes me feel like they put more effort into the monitor for the prices they charge. Idk if that is stupid but just how I feel haha. I was turned off that the Samsung back and stand were plastic

Thanks for the pics! The Dell looks GREAT - better than it shows on their website (love how the front glass covers the top and side bezels - very sleek looking). Can't wait to get mine!

Dell is probably much better then LG even if it uses same panel. They calibrate out of the box, better stand and better warranty.

Just ordered the dell for $1025.99 before taxes after existing promotions. The three-year warranty and much cheaper price tag finally made me cave after looking at the LG for so long and hearing negative early reviews of the Samsung. I'm crazy excited, upgrading from my Asus VS247.

Ah true see that bottom photo doesn't show it much but if you were to look at some chinese threads when they go up close. Not the one you had posted--but on another chinese thread on the same board--another user had gone up close and shot the the thickness of the sides of the dell and just the way the back end of it bulges like an old crt/led monitor compared to the more tidy LG is what bugs me, especially since the front of the bevel and bezel looks so much nicer on the dell than the LG that basically means they could of put some work on the back and sides but chose not too... That's what bugs me the most about dell -__-. Though the choice of options and inputs are really nice compared to the LG... so I may go with that. :| MHL and hdmi, mini displayport compared to two useless thunderport that I can't use XD.

Yeaaah that's the other reason I may go with dell lol... warranty. Though I didn't know they calibrate out of the box? Do the do that for you? Or you mean they calibrate straight out of the box but you still have to manually do it yourself? If so it's the same with the LG... And it would be the exact same if they're using the same panel as the curved ones of the LG. Since you have to both manually calibrate it that's all LG's tech not dells... most of it anyways.
