    When Are Most New DELL PC Monitors Released?

    We looked at the release dates for new DELL flatpanel monitors over the last 3 years, but couldn't see any clear trend.

    The biggest month last year for new DELL PC screen releases was September, with five new DELL PC displays released that month. In May 2017, 14 new DELL PC monitors were released making it the biggest month that year for new DELL PC monitor releases. Five new DELL PC screens were released in January 2016 making it the biggest month that year for new DELL PC monitor releases.

    .

    How Fast Do DELL LCD Screen Prices Drop After Release?

    DELL PC screens tend to depreciate faster than most flatpanel monitors.

    Most flatpanel monitors drop in price by 2% in the first 6 months after release. On average DELL LCD screens drop in price by 11% in the first 6 months after release. If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of $42 on a typical $387 new DELL flatpanel monitor by waiting 6 months before buying.
