How can we find the Manufacturing date of the monitor? As I don't want to purchase a monitor with a 3 year warranty and find it was made 2.5 years ago

The date of manufacture is on a plate at the rear of the monitor. The warranty period, however, is from the date of purchase, not of manufacture.

Every Dell part has a label with a long serial number in the following format:

CC-PPPPPP-MMMM-DDD-SSSS

CC= 2 letters, country of origen (e,g, TH for Thailand, CN for China).

PPPPPP= 6 alphanumeric, Dell internal part number, most times starts with 0.

MMMMM= 5 numbers, Vendor ID.

DDD= Manufacturing date code
first digit= number, manufacturing year (e.g 8=2008, but on old stuff could be 1998)
second digit= alphanumeric, manufacturing month (1=January, 9=September, A=October, C=December)
Third digit= alphanumeric, manufacturing day of the month (1=1, 9=9, A=10, B=11,....and so on).

SSSS= 4 alphanumeric, serial number.

D Sharp is correct. Also, just for your info, both monitors i bought on here on Oct. 31, '12 were manufactured in August, '12.

The 3 year warranty applies from the date of purchase not the date of manufacture.

the manufactured date is on the back. however, I believe the warranty is from date of purchase not date of manufacture.

I don't think you can instantly know the man date online before you actually get the monitor. Unless you are in a brick and motor store. I found the man date of my Dell U2412M on both labels on the box and in the back of the monitor. I totally agree with D Sharp regarding the warranty kick in date.
