Prices are rising at the moment, so I wouldn't worry too much. The seller has the power.

Don't forget as well that even if they realised they were wrong half-way through, they're going to look a bit stupid if they suddenly change their mind.

Not an excuse, but perhaps an explanation.

I would think that by the time it has failed from over-usage, you'll be able to to buy a similarly spec'd equivalent for next to nothing.

Great! I've been looking forward to the death of uplay.

If that's not what you mean Ubisoft, then you're lying. But I guess we knew that already.

I did see that article, but it sounds like a real hack-job. Not something I'd want to invest money in to achieve, although if I had the kit already obviously I'd give it a crack.

Bad timing.

HDMI 2 isn't an option yet, so unless your TV comes with the right Displayport connectivity, you're stuffed.

Given that there's no real 4K TV content out there right now, I'd be...

P2414H is a nice screen - it's a bit like the last generation of Ultrasharp Dells. The design is very different to the U2414H, but differs little to the U2212/U2312 designs.

It's aimed at offices...

I would just go buy a TV from Richer Sounds or whoever your preferred retailer is.

I agree with Yslen. Go for an IPS - the stated response times will be slower than a TN, but I'd be surprised if you'd notice unless you're a CSS LAN pro.
