I feel a twinge of guilt for the headline. It's total click bait—but also accurate. Dell is selling its 28" Ultra HD monitor for only $404.99 after a $250 discount and coupon code ?WDVNK$9S8XMCX. (Thanks HardForum.) That sounds like an incredible deal, and it kind of is. However, there are a couple of crucial caveats. The panel is based on TN technology, and 4K output is limited to a 30Hz refresh rate. Eww. The custom reviews posted on Dell's site aren't terribly encouraging, either.
So, yeah, maybe consider one of the other deals we've gathered this week.
That's all for this week. As always, feel free to add other deals in the comments below. Or yell at me for luring you in with that 4K monitor.
