If you buy one 2711 now, it will be cheaper to get two more compared to getting a 3011 now and getting two more of those later...

Remember that buying from Dell gets you the advanced replacement or whatever it is with the ultrasharp panels.

if it were me i would either get the 2711 or a used 3007. I have had both (currently using the 2711) and both are amazing monitors.

I have a 30 inch Dell 3008. I also had a 27 incher that was smoother for gaming,but once you use a 30 inch,it's hard to even THINK about anything smaller.

I saw that on Best Directs site and would normally buy from NCIX, unfortunately NCIX offers a 1year warranty where as dell has their 3 year plus a better dead pixel etc.. warranty than good ol ncix. unless ive read something wrong on the site?

thanks though.

^^^^^ Remember if you purchase from NCIX you don't get the same 3 yr Warranty that Dell offers, I know this has been brought up already, but just emphasize ;)

Mr Barker that's why I wont buy from a 3rd party reseller on a purchase like this, my company gets some pretty good dell deals as we buy quite a bit of dell products (our entire server collection is dell, our 50+ PCs are all dell and we don't lease we buy)
So i have our CEO getting a quote for me from dell. Im really excited, my 24's are selling like hot cakes of all places on Craigs List. Ive done the Eyefinity and now i'm ready for a big boy monitor ha ha. Thanks for everyone's input!!
