Hi,
Anyone interested in this monitor may want to know it is a cheap upgrade with this Dell code 305-D07C12 PC.
Basicaly you can get an okay PC with the monitor for £508, £20 less than the monitor on it's own. Just downgrade the support to basic. If anyone goes for it, maybe upgrade to Vista Premium.

moobile, i have two of them but can save you a lot of money. Don't know what your opinion of ebay is but i bought mine from linky

I got them for 400 but they are 350 now.

They arrived sealed in the box, i activated the warranty in my name and I love them. Just need to get them calibrated, they're a bit bright at the mo.

If you use visa through paypal or pay them directly with visa you are well protected.

Might save you a few hundred. M.

Just jumping in to disabuse you of notion that using Visa via Paypal offers any protection. It does not. Visa will say you've used your card to buy the services of Paypal and will not extend your protection to the item itself or the Paypal transaction. Your protection, for what it's worth, is only that offered by Paypal or E-bay's buyer protection service. Both of which are of limited value when buying expensive items. Check carefully what protection Paypal and Ebay offer you and what the level of financial compensation offered is. You may be surprised at how little compensation you may be entitled to if things go wrong...
Always better to use your credit card directly with the merchant where possible. They'd prefer that in any case as the charge is less to them.

ok, fair enough but i can only go on my experience. I was screwed a few hundred pounds by someone who did a runner. I got all my money back very easily. I agree it's simpler to pay the supplier directly though as paypal take too much of a cut.

Not trying to start an argument but all i can go on is my own experience. If i remember correctly I may have paid them directly.

I know this is an old topic in a way but I feel the need to contribute if only to help those who have little or no experience of Paypal. The protection you get with Paypal is quite limited. If you have the bad luck of dealing with a rogue trader you could end up losing more than half of your money, easily. Don't fall for the glossy promotional stuff. The fine print is a completely different matter. Whenever possible, use your credit card directly. With that, you have peace of mind. Michael may have been lucky with his case (and i am really surprised) but Paypal does not work like that.

Hi!
just received my Dell Ultrasharp from a supplier on Ebay (snatch-ach) cost was £319 +VAT.
It is set up and I am using it to write this. It was received in the time band, its a perfectly new monitor direct from Dell, and all the quoted spefication were correct.
The cost to me was about the best that I could expect, and I am well pleased with both the way that Ebay and the supplier dealt with the order. The supplier even gave details of how I could track the item enroute via City Link.

PS this supplier is a business and has his own website, something that while not totally without dangers, at least gives some degree of well being when buying.

Regards Mike
