Dell 27" Gaming Monitor S2721DGF $534.66 Delivered @ Dell

3710
auaffiliates15%off

First post!

Been keeping an eye out for the LG27GL850 but prices have been sky high since the last $699 on Amazon. I saw the S2721DGF paper release last month and was interested. Saw the Coupon code and it took it down from $629 to $534.66. The panels are supposedly the same as the LG27GL850 but you'll have to put up with the Dell aesthetic. Dell also seems to have excellent warranty service so that's a plus. It seems to be an great buy for creatives as well since it covers 98% DCI-P3.

Extra info on the side:

Also 6% with Cashrewards if you wanna double down.

          Yeah that’s strange, where does it say pending financial verification? Did you buy it on a pre existing business account?

          If I’m looking in the same place, my order says Confirmed - in production.

          •  

            @stuffedcrust: When I click the order details link in the confirmation email, it brings me to the order status page. It says there: "Status: Processing - Pending Finance". clearance. But yeah, like I said, I personally received an email from Dell asking me to respond to their email which I find strange.

            •  

              @Haku: Did you use the ECU5 code?

              •  

                @richh1833: No I didn't. Just he 15% code. Will see what happens. Still waiting for a response after I replied with my work email.

  •  

    Thanks OP, I got two and received the confirmation email within minutes :)

  •  

    A great deal to start with, but purchased two monitors (for work) with Amex Business Platinum and got emails triggering the $250 credit back (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/540646) plus the 10% credit for each purchase (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/528340). If that all comes back approved then it will be $712.38 for the pair ($1069.31-$106.93-$250.00) or an amazing $356.19 each. Feels like a BOGOF sale! I'll admit the business platinum does cost a lot and isn't for everyone, but we usually get good value from it, so this is a nice extra bonus.

    •  

      Even cheaper than for just one of the LGs right now!

    •  

      I take my hat off to you Sir, wish I had an Amex, 😅

    •  

      You might qualify for the OzB Olympics.

  •  

    Code still works but Dell put base price up to $1229 now so $1044.65 with discount code. LG 850 is a bargain now if you can find one ;)

    Thats crazy the price is now back to $1,229.00 good luck to everyone who bought it including me for 507. Hopefully they dont try and refund us.

    • +1 vote

      Nah, its a mistake at this price of $1,229.00, this thing should only be around $699 RRP.

  •  

    Had this saved to my cart from last night with the code applied, and was able to order now $534.66 + 6% cashback Hopefully the order goes through… the price now is crazy.

  •  

    Has anyone’s order shipped?

    •  

      I was late to pull the trigger… mine says in production arrives by 14/10/2020 :( - oh well… great price regardless.

      •  

        Ouch.. sucks if that's true. Bought mine about an hour before it ended and it's still saying 6/08

        •  

          Yeah, hoping it's much sooner… but I suppose there will be plenty of reviews/feedback by October :P

      Yep mine got shipped today.

      •  

        This gives me hope that my order won't be cancelled.

      yep shipped here as well.

    Shipped and tracking number in hand. ETA tomorrow! woot.

    •  

      Same, but with ETA Friday!

  • +1 vote

    Anyone still waiting on their order confirmation? Ordered Saturday Night and paid using PayPal, but only received an Order Acknowledgement so far.

    •  

      I had the same happen to me with one of my orders, but my card wasn't charged. I just ordered again and then it was confirmed and I submitted a ticket to make sure the other one doesn't go through.

    •  

      Ordered 3 of the other monitors on sale from Dell, and only had confirmation for 2 so I had to call and after a long time of saying they can't find the 3rd, they asked me to do payment for 3rd and then got the confirmation email. (I called them)

  •  

    Had an issue with payment, called to manually process - ETA for next shipment is 9/10/2020. Sales rep confirmed they got ozb'd with little to no stock left. Also confirmed ECU5 code was for Edith Cowan students only (https://intranet.ecu.edu.au/student/support/it-services/buyi...) - gave the impression orders using that code wouldn't be honored.They asked for a screenshot to confirm the discounted price (using auaffiliates15%off), and otherwise sounded like they were after the full $1229 amount.

    • +2 votes

      I think Edith Cowan Uni students are going to be pretty peed off after realising the code isn't working anymore thanks to Ozbargain.

  •  

    If anyone doesn't want their's I'll take it for 600 shipped.

  •  

    Ive got mine already

    •  

      When did you order?

      • +3 votes

        ordered when this deal had 10 upvotes.
        Also this montir seems to have a lot of light bleed on the edges

        •  

          Is it back light bleed or just IPS glow?

          •  

            @locknuts: I'm gonna say it's more IPS glow. Again I don't sit in a dark room to play/work so it's a bit difficult to tell. Colour reproduction is great though.

            •  

              @richh1833: i think mine looks more like a bleed but i have 2. one is more like an ips glow which is super normal.

              I am getting replacement on one of them as the monitor colour is off by quite a bit (red tin through out the display)

              •  

                @sushimaster: have you tried colour calibrating? Mine definitely has a pink hue but my other editing monitor has a green hue so it's really difficult to match colours.

                •  

                  @richh1833: if its a different monitor than it would be different so u have to calibrate for sure. Mine are both the same but different colour.

              •  

                @sushimaster: How long will they take for a replacement?

                •  

                  @lordra: no clue, they sent me the wrong one today >:( Mine was more like a red hue (most likely an lcd problem )and the other one looks way more accurate (cool blue feel)

                  I dont have a SpyderX sadly @richh1833

                  •  

                    @sushimaster: Given the delivery date of October for everyone else, I hope they don't delay yours. Let us know how you go with the new replacement. Hope it works out for you.

                    •  

                      @lordra: not in a rush but now i have to deal with the wrong shipment :(

  •  

    Received mine today. That was fast.

    Have those who purchased on the 01/08 using only the 15% off code had theirs shipped yet? I purchased mine using paypal around 4pm on Saturday and have yet to be charged.. not looking good.

    • +1 vote

      ordered around the same time but charged within an hour or 2 (used CC not paypal etc)

    •  

      I ordered at 2:40 I got mine this morning , I have only received the original purchase email and no notification of dispatch

      • +1 vote

        Did you pay with CC or paypal?

        •  

          I also bought mine on 01/08 using only the 15% code and paid with PayPal. Mine arrived just before 11am this morning.

          •  

            @cassiopeia: When you placed your order how long did it take Dell to debit your Paypal account?

            •  

              @Enixon: If I check my credit card, it's still a pending transaction so I don't think the money has been processed by Dell yet.

      •  

        when you placed your order how long did it take dell to withdraw your money from your account?

  •  

    Ordered 4pm on Sat the 1st but the order is still "in production"with the original receive by 6th of August (but i doubt it!).

    •  

      Same, ordered at 6pm on 1st.

  •  

    I was probably one of the last to order so I will be one of the last to receive. ETA 16/10.
    But it's okay I've got other things to think about living in Metro Melbourne :-/

  •  

    Link to monitor is now dead altogether…Can't find it via the search function on the website either.

    •  

      Only info still up, but if I can't sell something for 3 months and risk customers complaining, I'd do the same thing. Especially since I still have S2719's in stock

      •  

        Yeah I just got an email saying my order's delayed until 22/10. At least I'll have time to check reviews and cancel if a better deal comes up in the meantime.

        •  

          I've never personally owned a Dell monitor. I was actually eyeing the VA Gigabyte for ~$500 for a month now. A Dell monitor feels like an Apple product (back in the day of iPhone 4) to me I guess. What's the chance of them exceeding expectation and deliver 2 weeks earlier?

          • +1 vote

            @plague69: According to guys on other forums they often deliver well before the date listed. This will be my first Dell monitor too though.

    Got an email saying my order has been delayed to Oct 16th

      Just got an email 19OCT. Ordered 7.30PM 1st Sat. Payment went at 7.43PM. Didn't use ECU5 code

      Hugely disappointing. Sep would have been nice.

    Your order has been delayed.
    The delivery date of your order has been updated to arrive by: oct. 19, 2020.

    Rubbish!

    •  

      Same, I'm going to try canceling my order. If I wanted to spend $550 and get a monitor in 3 months time I would have bought that Xiaomi 34" >:(

  • +1 vote

    Since shipment has now been delayed for over 2 months. Anyone has any experience as to if there's anything extra we can get from Dell to sweeten the deal?

    Looks like we'll be getting the cashrewards.com.au before we get the monitor. If you cancel after you get it, think of it as ~20% pa interest on your investment

    Seems right since lead time for monitors is 8-12 weeks…

    •  

      You dont get cashreward because you used a code. It will probably get declined soon even though it tracked.

      •  

        I have in the past, but wasn't Dell. Lets see if we get lucky

        •  

          Yeh, works with some stores but not with Dell anymore.
          I ordered a monitor using the auaffilates and EPP5 codes and thought i'd try it and it tracked, but after 1-2 weeks, it changed to declined. It used to be able to be combined though as i ordered something a few months before that and got both code discount and cashrewards.
          I think people started asking if they would combine when the auaffilaites, EPP5 and honey7 codes came out and TA checked with Dell which made them aware of the loophole.
          See TA's first comment on this thread https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/546109

            @8azinga: Shame. Last purchase of XPS was such a good deal 10% discount + 15% cashback

    •  

      did you manage to get anything out of them for delaying the order?

      •  

        Yet to try. Going to wait a day and see if anyone else has. At least will have a scope of how much to ask for

    Just got an email, my order delay has been changed and new estimated delivery date is 30/09.

    •  

      Same.

        Same…

  •  

    I got an email today, updated delivery is around 30th August 2020 (from October), but that's from Dell US.

    •  

      received it yet?

    •  

      Did you get it? :)

      •  

        Got it today!
        But one problem, I genuinely thought it would still come in October as my shipping status never changed (you know how fast AusPOST are), so in anticipation I sold my Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU so I can grab the upcoming RTX 3070 to pair with this monitor, which also comes out in October.

        So I can't really play anything with my temporary Nvidia GT 1030.

    very pretty @ 144hz and 164.5hz.

    Definitely not as uniform in back-light as my other Dell's (UP2716D).

    Finally received mine today, straight to Ozbargain to tell everyone. Had it for about an hour, so far so good

  •  

    I had mine yesterday 16/09/2020 the delivery date was 19/10/2020 … unfortunately my unite had an issue which there is some pixels glowing with read light only when I run a video especially if the video has some dark images… did anyone of you had the same problem with the monitor?

    I've missed this deal every time lol

  •  

    Got mine on Friday 25/9/20 instead of October so a month ahead (in spite of it being late). My cashback did not track so logged a claim to Cashrewards manually. I wonder if warranty starts from invoice date or delivery date as I don't want to be screwed out of almost 2 month's of warranty.

    Is there any special settings I need to use for this monitor (that anyone recommends for gaming?)
