I have bought two of these over the past year, on these Dell deals, and the picture is very good. It is a really good set. The only negative, at least on mine, was when I tried to hook up a Roku. I used their HDMI cable, which was thick and heavy, and it wouldn't take. Finally, I figured out that if I lift the cable up a bit the TV would recognize the Roku. Figuring it was a somewhat loose HDMI housing, I was looking into a warranty repair when I noticed the small-cable HDMIs. I picked one up off Amazon for a few bucks and, sure enough, HD Roku with no problems.
Can the gift card be rolled over for the purchase of a second TV where we receive another GC?
1) Buy set for $247.99 and receive $150 GC 2) Spend $150 GC from step 1 on second TV and pay $97.99 and get another $150 GC 3) Spend $150 GC from step 2 on third TV and pay $97.99 and get another $150 GC
It takes about 3 weeks to receive the promo code. Dell seems to run these deals frequently, however, this particular TV usually comes w/a $125 promo code. This is the second time in the past few years that they offer $150 and one other time it came w/a $200 code.
I can't find it on Google, but I recall reading that there are places that buy coupons for cash. Can anyone tell me some reliable sites to use. I want to get the TV but I have no use for the $150 coupon and rather get the cost of the TV down by selling the coupon code.
If you want to use more than a couple of GCs to purchase this (I had multiple $25 GCs), don't bother. You have to call the customer rep to have them consolidate the GCs, which takes days. "No, this is not ridiculous. This is how it's done!" - said Dell's CSR.
Also, if you are going to buy, make sure you sign up for the Dell Advantage plan. That kicks back another 5% in the form of a GC. Also remember to CashBack sites like here or Upromise to sweeten the deal.
I bought one of these at the very end of May with the $125 gift card and the 5% Advantage gift card. The 5% ($12) arrived within days, but the $125 gift card just arrived yesterday, close to 20 business days after purchase. I even contacted Dell early on because the way the promo appeared on the receipt was so strange -- almost like a mistake. The set is great for its purpose (it's in our guest room but it's nice to have a semi-portable set to move around).
vanlikefriends said: Can I use this as a monitor for work? You can, but the resolution would be very low. For comparison, a Dell 30" monitor is 2560x1600 and this would be around 1280x720 which is probably fine on a 17" monitor but would look really bad on a 32", IMHO.
I got 2 of these and must say these are top notch.
Hook up to U-verse and PC all the same. Plus I have another 250 GC from Dell for the 50 inch version that i bought.
so I have $500 in GC's that I need to use by July 17th. I m thinking of pulling the trigger for one of these. Does anyone have any recommendations for what I can spend this on? I m looking for a larger TV than 32.
