  • This vs Xiaomi?

    • +11

      I bought Dell one last year, very happy.

    • +5

      Imho if you're happy with either option and the money difference isn't a problem then I can't say enough good things about Dell. I've had dell monitors for what feels like a lifetime. The Xiaomi at its bottom price is really good value and hard to pass up. That being said I can't say enough good things about Dell's build quality and customer service is top notch.

      • +1

        I've bought high end 4 Dell screens in the last 6 years. Their quality is not what it used to be. The last 4k 27" screen I bought had bad backlight uniformity issues.

        • Good to know maybe it's just a bit of nostalgia but I feel like Dell monitors have always made solid monitors.

          People are still using the older U27xx 2560x1440 monitors I forget specifically which model but they are older thick bezel ones. Those things lasted forever. Idk for me, Dell was the first company to bring out affordable IPS 4k monitors. There's a lot of monitor competition these days but I still think Dell delivers good value. My X34 is getting a bit long in the tooth and I've been unsure what to upgrade to.

          • @TheFyrd: Any thoughts anyone might want to offer on this similar (but different) beast?
            https://prismplus.com.au/collections/monitors/products/prism... ($600, maybe less $30)…

          • @TheFyrd: I still own and use three different Dell monitors in my family - U2007WFP (20 inch from 2006), U2410 (24 inch form 2010) and U2715H (27 inch from 2016). Other than the U2410 has a few dead pixels, all three of them still functioning well all these years.

        I can't say enough good things about Dell's build quality and customer service is top notch.


        • Maybe top-notch was a stretch lmao :D I should have specified with regards only to monitors, the few times I've had a problem they've been replaced pretty quick. I've had no complaints and shipping has always been quick, easy and painless. I've purchased a decent amount of Dell monitors over the years both new and used.

      • +13

        They are not the same revision of the panel, not even close. Get the Dell.

        • Curious, are they different VA panels? how do you differentiate them if tech specs just say VA?
          I'm thinking to get dell actually

          • @robertwt7: They are likely both Samsung panels, just one has more in common with 2019 revisions, and the Dell is very recent (mid-to-late 2021).

            There are panel revision/model numbers, but without information from the manufacturer or the service menu, it's impossible to tell beyond testing the devices for similarities with known panels/monitors.

            You're generally getting this info from post-launch reviews, and in the case of Samsung/TCL panels, I'm not sure there's any public listing of the panel variants via wholesale databases.

            What I can tell you though from what I'm seeing is that for 100Hz+ VA, right now you only want to bother with Samsung/TCL, and only mid-2021 models onwards, with the exception of the Samsung G7 and G9.

            • +1

              @jasswolf: aha right, i understand. thanks for clarifying for me!

    • love my DGF. dells have an awesome inbuilt stand but i dont know about xiaomi. fwiw i feel like 34" is a tad too big to sit close to and game

      • Yeah, I don't think I've ever seen anyone stream on Switch using a 34"

        They all use 24-27"

        • went from 24 to 27 and find it perfect. 34 would be good for single player games

          • +1

            @belongsinforums: 34" ultrawide monitors are the same height as 27" monitors, just with more horizontal space. Great for gaming and work productivity. Probably not so great for streaming because most of the world is viewing in a 16:9 aspect ratio, and the need for having a separate monitor to keep apps open in constant view.

            32" monitors are the ones that can definitely feel too big to sit up close to.

    • +3

      I have the Dell. Extremely happy with it

    • +3

      Xiaomi has an extra DisplayPort, otherwise the Dell destroys it as a monitor.

      It's not even close.

      • Have both. I'd prefer the Dell quite simply for the USB hub. Paid the same for both

    • I asked the same question before I got xiaomi, but the price was too good - $449 Black Friday in 2020
      if Dell and xiaomi were same price, likely I would go for Dell.

      got xiaomi over a year now, no problems at all, gaming is smooth, happy with the brightness and refreshing rate.

      only thing I could complain is this xiaomi takes like 3 seconds to turn on, other monitors like half of that time.

  • Finally. Just in time looking for a new monitor.

  • +2

    I assume the 20% discount will work on the S2721DGF?

    • +1

      $429 (same as December).

      • $30 premium due to parts shortages? :<

        • +1

          And the AUD.

          • @dealbot: So we won’t see $399 for this ever again?

  • +1

    Thanks @dealbot. I'm hoping for S2721Q/S.

    • +1

      Q is finished. Only a very small batch of QS left.

      Quite a few models out of stock. I'll know more later - not getting much info this time!

      • any chance to negotiate the 27" QC further, like what u did with 27" QS back then? or maybe DC?

        • Use the discount gift cards…

      • Thanks @dealbot, by finished you mean discontinued?

  • +2

    Not all hero’s wear capes! Thank you SO MUCH Dealbot!

    • He wears curved tie.

  • +2

    How much will the s3221qs be? Currently its $586 https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/334154556071?epid=7044834533&has....
    Hoping it would go below $400 mark to pull the trigger.

    • Hoping it would go below $400 mark to pull the trigger.


    • Wow, I didn’t know it was that expensive, I remember getting mine for ~$350 last year

    • Lol $586 X 0.8 doesn't equal 400 😅

  • Thanks dealbot.

    Any chance we might see any sort of deal on the AW3821DW soon?

    • +10

      I was previously told that we won't see $1299 again. I'll try and push again but it may be small batch.

      • I am also waiting for the price $1299 come back since I missed the offer last year. Is there any chance this year,dealbot?

      • Where can one find out if you are able to get a batch at $1299, I'd be all over one at that price.

    • this was one sweet deal from dealbot last year. no regrets whatsoever with the AW3821DW at $1,299. i do hope it gets offered again at that price. 😊

    • +7

      That's never the case with Dell and other large retailers like Microsoft.

  • Will dell bring back U2720Q on sale or release new version latter this year?

  • +1

    Any deals on the S2721QS?

  • +2

    crap! had my S2722QC delivered a week ago… should have waited. Nice monitor though.

    • +1

      didnt u get the last Dell deal?

      • well it was a bit of a mess as I initially bought S2721Q on last deal and then realized S2722QC better suited me after deal was over and cancellation took a while so missed out on both. Still very happy with the monitor as usb-c is super convenient on my macbook.

        • I guess you can sell it for about $300, just list it on Facebook markets.

          • +1

            @hello2090: if you are referring to S2721Q , no i managed to cancel the order.

    • +2

      it's the same price as last month (I presume u bought it during the 20% too?)

      • yeah $369

    • +1

      where did you buy it from?

      if from ebay then you can send it back in 30 days for full refund if you still have box and everything

      • +3

        oh didn't know this. It's current sitting in monitor arm so not sure if all that effort is worth the $50, plus the stress you get from dealing with dell support. :)

        • +1

          ebay return is actually easy. you initiate return from ebay explaining your reason and dell ebay team accepts your return and you send it back with free auspost label.

        • +3

          Tbh 50 dollars for a week or more’s wait without your monitor isn’t really worth it

          • +1

            @sakanasama: agree! waited way too long for these monitors so these are never coming off the monitor arm.

  • Does Dell have any monitors with HDMI 2.1 and freesync/gsync?

  • Any monitors will web cam and speakers?

    • Some monitors have (crappy) speakers but never seen one with a webcam. Unless it's an all-in-one PC or a tablet.

      • Look harder!

    • S2722DZ will be $479 according to this deal, that has the pop up camera in it and 5w speakers.

    S2722QC great monitor! Bought two before for WFH (although ended up just using one and the other one just left in the box for a long time…) Good stand, usb-c connects to my working laptop with no issue.

  • +2

    Dell XPS 13 please.

  • Does anyone have any advice on using these monitors for primary work usage with a little bit of gaming here and there?

    I don’t think 27# is large enough for my multitasking work needs (I currently use dual 19#), but 34# should suffice when using PIP or PBP. I think dual 27# is going to be too over the top ;)

    Anyone comment on how well PIP or PBP works on the S3422DWG? Or do you generally just resize windows and applications to work in a similar way that dual screens would. On MSTeams/Zoom I wouldn’t want to always share my entire full screen, so I can multitask while sharing part of the screen fyi

    • +7

      Mate, the screen real estate is about resolution and then size (to fit your eyesight). A 27" 4K is far better than your two 19" monitors but it depends on how much scaling you require. The 34" 4K will have the same amount of screen real estate but you may find it more comfortable and any resolution less than that will have less real estate (eg 3440x1440). Get a 4K for productivity and thank me later or now if you like :).

      • +3

        love my 27" 4K screen ….. for WFH and business apps, run Office 365, Visio and work intranet etc …..

        • Do you use your 27" at 100% scaling or do you scale up to make all text easier to ready?

          Also looking for a monitor for WFH and business apps like Office 365

    • +1

      I have dual S2722QC setup and they are great! Initially i was contemplating buying just one S2722QC and hooking my gaming PC/monitor instead for dual setup but after a day or two of usage I found it was too much of a hassle to switch from two sources and PIP just didn't work for me.

      • Hi notice you have the QC Model that i have ordered today thanks to OP
        Do these USB-C hubs work:

        One keyboad mouse for the plugged laptop and desktop? Like KVM
        One plugged in usb drive readable by both units?
        Can one run PIP both devices laptop and desktop and view in PIP simultaneously?

        • they dont daisy chain so treat it like separate connection to your PC/laptop. I have one from each of two monitors USB-C cable connected to my macbook right now.

      • +1

        They don't daisy chain to one another do they? So you plug two in to two USB C slots?? Does that cause issues with charging if both power delivery USB are plugged in?? Or the laptop draws power from just one?

        • yes correct. hopefully it draws power from one usb-c connection but hey more the merrier

    • +4

      I have 27" 4K and use it for WFH, had 34" but needed to move head left to right to see whole screen, 27" is an easy view and much better than 2 x 21" which they give us at work …..

    • +2

      27" at 4K is plenty of screen real estate with a laptop screen to supplement it. I usually have 2-3 application windows on there with some minimal overlap. Assuming your 19" monitors are running at 1280x1024, you’ll have over 3 times as many pixels to play with, although those pixels will be much smaller. YMMV of course.

  • +2

    I have so many dell products including monitors and laptops, but with my recent experience regarding an extremely common dell xps hinge issue, I could not recommend their laptops/customer support, especially given the unit was purchased at $2200 at the time.

    • What model and how long have you had it for?

      • +1

        it's an xps 13 i7, had it for 3 years when it broke. The issue is essentially the hinge attachment to the palmrest assembly breaks off. It is definitely an issue resulting from poor design as the hinges are poorly supported. https://www.reddit.com/r/Dell/comments/8jrg0l/dell_xps_13_93...

        • Mine has been broken for years, laptop still works fine.
          Saying that, WAY too many issues to recommend someone but it. I just don't mind because there's no other alternative and I don't mind doing my own repairs.

  • +1

    Any good deals on Dell XPS systems? I've been thinking of taking the leap.

    • new XPS system, don't expect a heavy discount on it.

  • Any chance we'll see more 13-14 inch laptops added to the ebay store? Mostly 15" at the moment. Looking for the Dell 13/14" 7000 series.

  • +6

    I got the S2722QC during the last deal. Very happy with the purchase. USB C connectivity makes the monitor a real bargain for $369. Just letting you know it's not a proper USB hub; there is no downstream display support. Out of the Box, the colour was pretty good. I did calibrate it later, and it looks even better. I would recommend it.

    • downstream as in your can't daisy chain it to a 2nd monitor? Or it won't be a secondary display to go with the macbook m1?

      • +2

        Downstream, as in daisy chain, it won't work. I use two displays with my mac pro intel. Connect the 2722qc with USB C. and Samsung CF591 with an HDMI via USB C dongle. Works well

      • Pretty sure you can't daisy chain the S2722QC. That's why I ordered the U2722DE from Dell. But not available on the eBay store sadly.

        • Yeah, it won't work in a daisy chain. Sorry if I miswrote it.

        • how does daisy chain technology work though? i thought with the usb c which has alternate dp 1.4 you could use your laptop to one monitor, and then DP /usb c out of that monitor into the usb c in this S2722QC and therefore daisy chain?

          or rather than just having an USB c/DP1.2 + enabled port does it need to spefically list "MFT" or something else to be daisy chain'able? or is it merely a compatibility thing of tech and one can't really tell until it's been tried between monitors and diff brands?

          • @SaberX: I think as long as it have DP 1.2+ it should be able to daisy chain. You are correct about how daisy chaining works, but the monitor has to support it. The S2722QC doesn't have a usb-c downstream port, so it can't be done.

            • @djsweet: What I'm confused about is the specs sheets when they list say just a display port or USB C. Can you not use this to connect and daisy chain (and then use an alternative port to connect to computer i.e. HDMI)? Or does the spec sheet have to specially say display port in, display port out? Some specifcally list both but where it is just a "display port" does this in itself not support daisy chaining to another monitor provided you use an alternative port type to connect the laptop initially to it?

              • @SaberX: If it doesn't specifically say downstream, then it won't be. The ones that really do have a downstream display output (like the U2227D/U2227DE) are quite expensive.

                • @djsweet: Ok no worries. I'm sold on the QC 4k. If I buy two and connect both to my laptop via thunderbolt ports will this be an issue given both ports can take power delivery? Will only one monitor send power across or will this cause issues?

    • +1

      Could you explain what you mean by 'not a proper usb hub'?
      Was planning to connect laptop or my galaxy phone via usb c and then have a mouse + keyboard plugged into the monitors usb - would my laptop/phone be connected to the mouse/keyboard that way?

      • +1

        I think it can do that. What it can't do is have a second monitor connected to it. The ultrasharp models can have a second display connected to their built in usb-c hub, and so can many other usb-c hubs.

        • Got it, thank you.

  • +1

    what do u guys do with the old monitors? Having the usb c would clean up my desk space by 5 cables and a hub.
