90
SPECIAL100

On the scout for monitors, juggling between the LG 34GK950 and this.

Currently discounted from $2,299.00 to $1,494.35.
Cashback from either Shopback or Cash Rewards.

Still too expensive for me, but I think it's the cheapest it's been. At least from what I can find on Ozbargain.

  • Not bad considering it the 2020 version

  • Doesn't seem to be too many of the older version around. Not on the Dell website. Have they phased it out?

    • I think so, I couldn't find the older version except on JB which was ridiculously overpriced.

      • Curiously it's still on their eBay store but obvious caveat being lack of cashback.

        Annoyed at myself as I waited too long on the previous deal, wanted to see if you'd score cashback on top of the SPECIAL100 coupon. I didn't get my answer :(

  • wow i purchased it 1 month ago for 1694. Now it dropped even more. Time to claim 28 degrees price protection. Thanks OP :)

  • Any benefit of this over the $500 cheaper Acer X34P?

    • I'd like to know this too, the only thing I can see on the specs is that the x34p has HDR 10bit(8bit+FRC) vs just 8 bit of the Alienware.

    • Warranty.

    • Pretty much guaranteed 120Hz on the AW3420DW whereas the X34P is 100Hz native with 120Hz overclock (with quite a few reports of flickering after a few weeks). Faster response times. Wider colour gamut (pros and cons). Heavier (~15kg vs ~10kg).

      • I own the Acer X34P and it is a fantastic monitor. The Dell might be marginally better but i doubt majority of the people buying it will notice the difference in performance but the extra $500 is definitely noticeable when it hits your pocket.

        • I agree the performance difference is marginal. But having the Dell 15 day returns and advanced replacements for this type of monitor which has had numerous QC issues, may just be worth the extra ~$400 for peace of mind, plus the better specs. :)

          • @Damon8: Yeah I personally havent had great experience with Dell when my laptop broke down. Took them a very long time to send someone to pick up and fix it. That said if this has changed and yeah the warranty for electronics this expensive might be a conisderation.

        • I'd pay the extra $500 for the Dell any day, there's a reason Acer products are priced in the budget range.

  • The LG has been reviewed generally as the better monitor but the DELL warranty is better.

    See the comparison here

  • I'm waiting for Samsung 49 CRG9 to be discounted. Sigh

  • Code SPECIAL100 still works, bringing the price down to $1,394.35 before cashback.

    • Be careful. If you use any vouchers that not on the cashback websites, you might not get cashback.

      • has anyone tried using SPECIAL100 recently and able to report on whether CR/SB is still eligible?
        I'm aware some members were able to get CR/SB with the code a few months ago

  • Been considering this over the x34p too… Just not sure of the wider colour gamut in Windows and games (over-saturation) and what the gamma is like on this one? I've read there's still no gamma control on this one. Anyone have any insight?

  • The LG is currently on sale at DeviceDeal for $1499.

  • great price but way 2 much for me…

  • I am in the market for monitor too.

    Thinking of BenQ EX351R. VA but looks like it's better for movies. I am not pro graphic designer and for daily basis especially movies would look better because of dark level and contrast over IPS panel, I am think this time I'd choose VA.

    It is $500 less which I can put towards new graphic card

  • If I managed to buy the AW3418DW recently for $853 (still waiting for it to be delivered so haven't experienced it yet) can I assume it's not worth paying the difference for this newwer model? What are the main advantages of this model over the older, considering the older can still reach 120hz through a change in the settings menu?

    I'm currently using like a 7 year old 24 inch monitor so either will be a huge step up but am curious…

    • how did you manage to get the AW3418DW for $853?

      • Got it at JB through a combination of price matching, then requesting to have a further $100 knocked off per the Special100 coupon (technically probably not something they should have done per their policy), then some additional hard negotiating. From here, I paid for the balance (which was around $900) with JB gift cards that I get for 5% off through work (which I think saved me around $40 or $50).

    • No, not worth paying the difference at all. How did you manage that mate? Was that brand new?

      • Yeah it was brand new - got it at JB through a combination of price matching, then requesting to have a further $100 knocked off per the Special100 coupon (technically probably not something they should have done per their policy), then some additional hard negotiating. From here, I paid for the balance (which was around $900) with JB gift cards that I get for 5% off through work (which I think saved me around $40 or $50).

  •  

    I have a coupon I’m selling. Comes to about 1144 delivered stacked with special100

    Just want 100 via PayPal
    Will give another $250 off

  • Both cashrewards and shopback are doing 16% cashback today. (but won't be able to use any coupons)
    should come down to $1,276.99 after cashback

  • My delivery just changed from 3/01 to the 31st

  • Finally received shipping confirmation this afternoon.

    Hopefully should receive it earlier than 23/1.

  • Anyone that's ordered one, let us all know how you find this monitor's wider colour gamut in games/desktop, motion quality/responsiveness, gamma, or any other issues. Thanks :)

    • Mine arrived last week. Colors look great, as expected from an IPS panel.
      Haven't played around much with Photoshop yet, since I haven't had much work to do yet. I'll see how it fares compared with my LG 29UM68 soon enough in terms in colour.

      Haven't had any motion blur or tearing. I haven't set the response time to Extreme yet. No issues on my part. Though I suppose you can always order one and if you don't like it, return it. Dell should be quite lax with that.

  • Cashrewards changed my cashback to $149.17 just recently. This is after receiving an email stating the cashback would be $217.36. No explanation and no notification.

  • shop back has "Calculating" on mine…
