Christmas Gift!

Postposted on Sun Nov 15, 2009 8:53 pm

Like some other people around here, i'm putting a nice new monitor on my x-mas wish list. For me, as long as there isn't a huge drop in price on the U2410 or the HP 24" IPS i'll probably go with a 2408wfp. I'm just looking to find the best price available. Ebay? I haven't seen any coupons lately and doesn't look like Dell sells it on the normal website anymore. So...anyone know where to get the cheapest price on a 2408? Or have a sweet deal on one of the other monitors i mentioned?

Hint: both HP and Dell have refurbished/outlet sites where you can get those monitors at a substantial discount and still get a 90 day warranty. You have to check back regularly because availability of any particular model comes and goes.

haha you're gonna do that to me even after you got a wave invite compliments of me? bah!

Yeah Uber, delloutlet sells the 2408 for like 429 and even have refurbs of the U2410 for 449 I think. 449 is also the price of the HP at their refurb site. That about as cheap as it's gonna get? I think i can snag a 2408 on ebay for 399/free shipping.

399/free shipping sound like a sweet deal? That's for a new, sealed in box. From what the Ebay store says, it still has dell's 3 yr warranty on it too. I think this might have to be it.

Do you guys think a refurbished one would be a bad idea to buy? Anyone had experiences with refurb dell monitors?

Sorry ssid, I got a 2408! As a lifetime TN user until this point i'd pretty excited to get it. It won't be here for another week or so but i'll let you guys know how it is.
