With that kick-ass rig why settle for less? If you can't afford the U3011 then U2711 is a great buy, currently on sale for $719 at Dell now with code 4R5G$KHRVQRB1R

Maybe im just not getting it, but none of your coupons are working for me.

Ahh, the 30 inch one you linked too is small business not home, and the 27 inch just doesnt work period.

post #7 of 14
That's how I got the code from the HotDeal section and SlickDeal, they said it won't be expired till the 16th. Anyway if you're serious about getting it just give Dell a call and I'm pretty sure they'll give you the monitor with the discount.
UPDATE: I just applied the code and it works for the U3011, shows $1,124.25 as total.

From what I've seen, Dell typically have more sales (as well as coupons) for their Small/Medium Business site and really, there's not a lot different compared to buying as a Home user (just fill in anything for your "Company" if you don't own or part of one) - you still get a 3yr warranty and the monitor still covered under the Premium Panel Guarantee.

After you've added the monitor to the Cart and go to the Cart Summary screen, it's near the bottom, under Coupon Entry.

Also, I should point out that there's actually not that big of a size difference between the U2410 and the U2711 despite one being 24" and the other 27". This is because the 24" is 16:10 whilst the 27" is 16:9: http://www.displaywars.com/27-inch-16x9-vs-24-inch-16x10

The 30" however is 16:10 and is massive. Here's a real world example (U3011 next to U2410) smile.gif
