As part of Microsoft's Cyber Monday event, you can now purchase the Dell 28" Ultra HD 4K monitor, model P2815Q for only $299.99. This is a 40% saving off the original purchase price and significantly cheaper than Dell's official store which sells the monitor for $449.99.

The P2815Q features a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 at 30 Hz and utilizes a TN panel. Obviously, this isn't a good option for gaming purposes or advanced photo editing due to the low refresh rate and limited viewing angles but is a fantastic price if you predominately use your computer for basic spreadsheets, word processing or text based editing. I wouldn't even recommended a 4k 60hz panel for gaming since the graphical horsepower isn't there to power 60fps with so many pixels on screen at one time. For example, visually demanding games like Crysis 3 require SLI 970s to even get close to 60fps at maximum settings when you select the native 4k resolution.

Another advantage to the P2815Q is the superb matte stand which can pivot, tilt, swivel, has cable management options and is height adjustable. Coupled with the industry-leading three year premium panel guarantee which includes a 0 dead pixel policy and you can see why Dell makes some of the best monitors around. It's important to note that manufacturers can deem up to 5 dead pixels to be acceptable so this may be something you want to take into account.

There are various connectivity options including DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort, HDMI (MHL), DisplayPort out (MST), USB Upstream and 4 USB 3.0 ports which should be more than ample for your individual needs.

This offer is only valid for 24 hours so act quickly if it's up your alley.
