Thanks.

My math was "Also Dell is currently having a pretty good promotion for the monitor. $600 for the monitor + a $200 gift card that you can either use or flip for cash for like $160-180 effectively bring the monitor into the $400 range"

The monitor is $600 w/o tax, w/tax of 7% thats $642 - 5% = $610, factor in the $200 gift card and thats $410 if you actually use up the gift card. Or feel free to sell the gift card for $160, effectively making the monitor cost $610-160 = $450. Or in other words "bringing the monitor into the $400 range" which technically speaking spans $400-499. So no i wouldn't say the math is off, there wasn't really much math to begin with, just an estimate that can be proven with some real math.

The deal is good when you look at it like that, the cheapest is $570 at Jet right now, and for me that would also mean tax so it'd be around $600 w/o any gift cards.

I like this monitor so much I just picked up a second one for my wife's computer.

Got it from Jet.com. I walked out the door at $539.99😄

I got it for $569, no taxes for me, free shipping, and a 15% off first time customer promo code. Max of $30 though.

Still cheapest I've found! For this price this monitor is amazing. I should have bought 2 from there.

Promo code was "15NOW"

Easy free 30 day return policy for any reason. If any defects are noted I'll be sure to exchange or return it. Much easier than with Dell from what I've heard.

Jet.com has no taxes? Also with Jet if you have to RMA it because of quality issues who pays for return?

No taxes for me. I think it depends on which state you live in and where their warehouses are located. This may be product related as thy ship from all over.

According to their return policy it appears it's like Amazon. They let you return within 30 days, and they pay return shipping.

Display scaling is the Windows feature to make things bigger. It can make things look better as well, but not all software scales properly. If you did not turn this on, it is not on. It does not generally effect games either.

Jet has tax for NJ, B&H doesnt and they also carry the monitor, will see if i can get them to price match down to $540 for me. Dell's current promotion is tempting but doing an exchange/return with them could prove to be a hassle if there are some defects.

Just got one online a few days ago but depending on the quality i may order one again from dell , the 200 gift card makes it tempting to just go triple screen .

I had headache and eye strain after few min using this model.
The only way to avoid this was to set brightness to 15/20 with contrast 50 or enable ulmb.
But then white colour is near of grey...

Anti-glare coating is harsh.
i won t talk about colour banding.biggrin.gif

Thanks!!

For games with dark environments, like horror games and such, Dell S2716DG.

For competitive gaming and if you can't maintain 120 FPS, Dell S2716DG.

For everything else, XB270HU. If you are a competitive gamer and can maintain 120 FPS in those games, then it's a tie.
