Brothers in Gaming and Tech
So I’m a sucker for a good 4K monitor. Resolution is king, as well as a few other things, so when Dell announced their Ultrasharp range of 4K monitors, I jumped on the chance to report about them. In fact if you Google ‘UP2414Q’, I tend to be one of the first links a fresh browser sees. So while the 24″ model was on sale in the US for $1400, then $1200 and now even slightly lower, I was waiting for the UK pricing to be announced. Just before Christmas, Dell showed their true colours: £1280. WHAT IS THAT.
Let us do the mathematics:
$1400 USD is ~£850 GBP
if you add +20% for tax, that is £1020
So £1020 seemed about right. Dell seem to smoking something particularly strong to then add another 20% onto that price to reach the £1280 line. Absolutely crazy and disgustingly pocket gouging. I did not partake at that price.
Searching around for the monitor today, and I bumped into a better awesome price at e-buyer. They are offering the UP2414Q for £870. That is amazingly close to the original US price (US is $1200 now, ~£730), and much more of a bargain than the price Dell offers.
e-buyer are saying they get stock on the 9th February. I am saving my pennies.
