You can buy both on Best Buy website, they are the same exact monitor, only difference being is the R(Retail) from what I read on the internet. Scam?

The R version is simply the retail version that Best Buy has. No difference. It was on sale for $350 (I think it still is). I picked one up yesterday. It's awesome. Mine is an A04 version if you care. Did not realize they had both on their website. I thought you could only get the non-R version from Dell. But yes, they are exactly the same monitor. From what I can tell, Dell likes to put the R after ones sold at a retail store just so they can differentiate where you bought it.

But yeah, Dell monitor with 1440p, 144hz, and g-sync for $350. Boosh.

Awesome. It's still on sale. I'm glad I returned the open box I bought for $470 last week! What a deal!

Can you which version you're getting on the box?

It's the R version, Rev A04. The sticker with the serial # tells which revision it is. The "R" is printed on the box with the model number.

Nothing about the monitor says it supports 3D vision, but apparently it does if you get an emitter and glasses. I'll probably never care enough to even check it out though.

I've seen a lot about sometimes the color calibration is hard to get right. Maybe it's because it's the A04 revision (and a lot of that was from reviews of earlier revisions), but mine seems pretty close right out of the box. Best looking TN panel I've ever seen.

While it's good for the price obviously..I had to return mine. Messed around with the settings for a while trying to get it right, but still looked a bit washed out, and the banding was terrible.

Should be alright for a bit of gaming, but ya it was what my budget could afford. Only gonna play RTS and FPS games on it. TV will be used for pretty much everything else.
