    HI there


    The DELL 2408WFP-HC is now available from OcUK on pre-order with stock due in 2-3 weeks. Its quite a bit more expensive than the 2407WFP-HC as the 2407WFP has been reduced considerably in price to clear stock by DELL and ourselves and even though OcUK is £100 cheaper than DELL for the 2408WFP its still quite a bit more than the 2407WFP which were currently offering at a very low price.

    If you want to guarantee yourself one of these from the first delivery then pre-order now and OcUK is the first to put an order in with DELL for this amazing panel and as such we shall have stock first in the UK and be able to ship via next day delivery:-

    I'm looking for a monitor now because my CRT just broke last week. I don't know if i can justify £500 for a monitor though :(

    24" are a premium, 20" are much much cheaper...just look at the price hikes between screen sizes.

    Wonder if the new Dell HC have the grey ghosting?

    Pity it doesn't have the 2nd DVI port like the 3008WFP does. Maybe I am just greedy.

    Aha, at last it appears! £470 is a fair whack though, will definitely wait until mid-late march to see if it doesn't settle a bit lower.

    Still this does looks like my final pc upgrade for the year ... should be worth it!

    Some customers received an email with a link to an online survey. All completed surveys resulted in a 7.5% discount code (to be used by the end of Feb 08).

    someone has already pointed this out, but does the 2408 have 1 OR 2 dvi ports? - on all the spec sheets it seems to say 1 but in the picture it clearly has 2:confused:
