    That's madness! Why wouldn't you buy one of these!?? They're great value at normal price, but this is just too good.

    Lucky yanks....:cool:

    Pisses me right off that we are always screwed on tech prices here in the UK. The dollar is worth sweet-fanny-adams at the moment (good going Georgie boy, may you have a long painful death) so why o why is stuff still cheap there? Yes, I'm jealous.

    I was checking out the 2005FPW and I don't get $384. It's already 35% off on the consumer site and you can use the $30 off 300 coupon to get it down to $456 w/ free shipping which is great, but not $384.

    When I tried the 40% off coupon through the small business site I got a coupon error.

    I picked up the 2001FP for my Mac mini back in January for ~$500. Now the old CRT on my PC looks so old and dingy. I'd love to pick up a 2005FPW and $456 is awesome, but I don't have the funds. Stupid washer/dryer had to break... $1300 for what? Clean clothes? *shakes head* :)

    I don't even want a monitor, and I want one. :D Now if only Dell made high quality DSLRs. ;)

    I wonder if I could use a 2005FPW with my ReplayTV.... hmmm....

    2005FPW has composite, S-Video, VGA and DVI inputs. Chances are you could find a way to make it work.
    Plus it has PIP.

    I had tried that and it did not work initially, I must have copied it wrong, I think I left out the '?'. My bad. Wow... $384. I shouldn't... but I'm so tempted. Those coupons don't expire for nearly a week, that's a long time to resist. :confused:

    That's a huge steal! I paid almost $100 more just two weeks ago for one! If you are really in the market for a monitor, I will tell you from personal experience that I highly recommend this display. For under $400 you just can't go wrong!

    Amazing how things change from week to week, day to day. And the coupon is good for nearly a week! That's quite a long time to get in on this deal.

    Too tempting...

    I should have never found this... I was going to resist because my computer came with a 17" Dell Ultra Sharp for free (yes I bought a dell because it was extremely cheap and I need to conserve some cash until after I figure out what is going on with my car). However, at this price the 2005FPW is really hard to pass up. I am planning on getting a PowerMac G5 in the next six months and this would really go well with it. Oh man... hold back.. haha ;)

    AHHH! I just bought it haha! It was $345.96 total since I used a DPA to pay. No tax in the state of IN so I got it tax free too :) I can't wait to get it!

    Congrats! I'm holding strong still, not going to buy. No DPA here and MI sales tax, so would be $407. (as if that is something to complain about :rolleyes: )

    Must... not... buy... :eek:

    It's a hell of a deal. I've been thinking about for a few hours now... With a new baby girl, how can I justify this purchase. Jeezzzz

    Well, you see, you'd have a great display to view the digital pictures of your daughter. ;)

    I'm trying to resist myself. I'm so bad.

    For those who have one already, will my iBook 1 Ghz run this monitor smoothly (w/ the monitor spanning hack)?

    This is why the UK needs to secede from the European Union and join the former Colonies as the 51st state. :) (Among other reasons...)

    P.S.: It LOOKS like the deal has expired.
