If you don't already, use it when ordering pizza. Last week there was a glitch in Dominoes online ordering system where you could order 8 garlic bread for $6.

I'm new to New Zealand and after a good screen to replace the 24' Philips I used to have (I noticed it's not very popular in this part of the world).
Anyways, I'm thinking about a Dell 27' https://www.elive.co.nz/dell-professional-p2717h-27inch-ips-monitor.php - 1920 x 1080 6ms IPS Monitor $450.

I never had Dell before, always assumed that American products are not the best in the market. Is anyone here tried it?
I love the brightness (300 cd/m2) and response time (6 ms) but how's the actual look?

Maybe I better check in the store first ay?

I'm not really the most knowledgeable about screens but I think Dell is an OK brand? Back in the day I used to have a Dell screen and I never had any problem with it but then again that was before I was gaming. Usb_hub reckons he wouldn't go for a Dell nowadays but he didn't really elaborate as to why not. You could always look at reviews online as they are usually pretty helpful (always take the good reviews with a grain of salt though, you never know if its a sponsored review). In my opinion it does seem a little bit pricey but then again that's from a large student loan currently no job point of view :P

(Also welcome to New Zealand? :D)

If you want bright, then Dell is amazing and they do make some good quality screens, but it will pay to take a look at it first, because it might be too bright.

I have a Dell u2713h (350 cd/m2), and its so bright that its almost too much, so most of the time I have it turned down to 30% brightness because its a bit hard on my eyes otherwise (But it could be perfect if you are in a bright room or have sun glare).

My only warning with that monitor is that 1080p on a 27 inch screen might look a bit grainy.

I have one of those samsung 23" ones, it has an eye saver mode therefore dimmer but also a gaming mode which is very vivid and the colours are bright. Cost about $300 so is worth it IMO
