Perhaps as important as the hardware powering your computer is the monitor that you look at while working or gaming or
wasting time being productive. And while prices for LCDs have dropped sharply over the last few months, the true behemoths are still costly. Behemoths like this UltraSharp monitor from Dell, which starts to blur the line between computer monitor and television (not so long ago a 27-inch CRT was a good purchase) usually sell for $1,499. But not with this LogicBuy deal, where you get 25% off, or $375.
The UltraSharp U3011 is not only massively large, it happens to be impressively spec’d out. It has a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution which keeps things dense enough, along with a 7ms grey-to-grey response time and a 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. At 370 nits, the unit will be bright enough for even the blindest of you. Perhaps more importantly, there’s a bevy of connections available: 2x DVI, 2x HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA and component. It even walked away with a Cnet Editor’s Choice pick after a glowing review.
The 25% rebate will be on until June 9th or the 1,000 first uses.
