Default Dell P2411H or Dell U2311H?

Hey folks,

Thinking in buying another monitor sometime this week. I have a U2410 and love it, which is why in some way I believe the U2311 won't disappoint me.

What do you think between the two models above?

Also, have you guys seen the U2311 somewhere cheaper than $300? At Dell's website it's $319 and at NCIX $299. Looking for something a little cheaper than that, if there is.

I'd love another U2410 but my gf would kill me...literally. $400

I just bought a P2411H and I love it. I got it off the Dell website for $199. I asked the community about this monitor before I purchased it but there were no responses to my thread.

Man we're in 2011. TN panels are history.
Take 2311H and don't look back.

BTW I've bought one for my brother-in-law a couple of weeks ago. It's perfect (I'd say I like it more than my A-MVA LED BenQ EW2420)

Anyone know the last time the U2311 was on sale? I'm hoping Dell would honor the same price

It always goes on sale. Last time was July 1st week in Dell's "Days of Dell deals".

Just keep an eye out and it will go on sale again. It's a great screen and I would definitely take it over the P2411H. eIPS > TN

I called(and chat as well) with Dell sales support to see if they would honor or give me a better price on the U2311. Didn't work out too well :(

My girlfriend asked me what I wanted for my birthday (July 21st) and I said one of these would be awesome. She will try to get me something else if we can't get a good price :(

I wanted to create a new thread, but I'll just hijack yours!!

U2311H on sale until 08/05/2011 for 230$ each

I'm currently debating if I should take 3 of them for some surround awesomness! Anyone tried 3 of them ?

I'm wondering if I would prefer 1xU2711 instead...

Thanks

Keep an eye out in the FS/FT thread because I'm likely selling my U2711 for a very good price this week, and it's only a month old. It's not that I don't like it, it's that I just have too many screens and am going with dual 24"

On [H]ardforum there is a lot of activity in the U2311H thread and I'm sure a few of their users have tried this in EyeFinity in both portrait and landscape mode, so truck on over there and see if you find the info you seek.
