Thought it might be worth while point out that Dell have the U2412M on sale for $199. This is a very good monitor for the price!

Just bought a second one for myself.

There would be very few monitors on the market that would rival the U2412M at this price point.

That is a fantastic price!

I just bought another one too, kind of wish i had waited before buying the last one now.

Where do you buy it from?

Hmm... I wonder if I should get one to replace my dell S2409W.

On the one hand, my monitor has served me well...

On the other, it is a TN panel, where the U2412M is an e-IPS panel.


Hmmm, decisions decisions....

They're onto us!

Pricing is changed and purchases disabled for now. Appears it was meant to be applied to one of the other $700 monitors like the rest in the range.. DOH

Pricing is still the same at $199. They have run out of stock. Ring Dell and speak to one of their CSR to order it over the phone.

I ordered one of these as well a couple of hours ago. Now when I go into "My Account" to view my order status there is nothing. I have searched using the reference number in the order receipt email I got but it finds nothing.

01/06/2012 08:32:25PM   Agent (ANZ_John_Teh): "the price is $499"

01/06/2012 08:32:34PM   Daniel: "are you sure it is an error?"

01/06/2012 08:33:06PM   Agent (ANZ_John_Teh): "yes"

01/06/2012 08:33:59PM   Daniel: "that is very dissapointing.. it has been on your website all day with no correction"

01/06/2012 08:34:19PM   Agent (ANZ_John_Teh): "there is actually"

01/06/2012 08:35:14PM   Daniel: "where?"

01/06/2012 08:35:27PM   Agent (ANZ_John_Teh): "http://www1.ap.dell.com/content/products/compare.aspx/24_30lcd?c=nz&l=en&s=dhs&cs=nzdhs1&~ck=mn"

01/06/2012 08:35:32PM   Agent (ANZ_John_Teh): "the pricing has been removed"

Well I hope I get to keep it but I suspect I'll end up looking like this when the order support team contact me...

That would've been a crazy price. I got the 2212HM for $195 just before Christmas and that was an awesome deal.
