    I just ordered mine yesterday. When did you ordered yours?

    How much did you have to pay Fedex. I really hope i don't have to pay Fedex otherwise this is not a good deal at all. :banghead:

    It was less than I paid customs the first time (customs screwed me?? :confused: ) I think it was about £25 ($40)? but I didn't pay it anyway as they already delivered the monitor and then invoiced me 2 weeks after :eek: :D

    If you live in the States, you shouldn't need to fill out any customs forms.
    Random Murderer and NdMk2o1o say thanks.

    Seriously? You didn't pay them? LOL. I wonder what will happen if you receive another package from fedex. :roll:

    This may well be true, I am in the UK and we get taxed for breathing, not sure on the US customs policies etc :toast:

    Hadn't thought about that but TBH Fedex is not very common in the UK, we have equally inept and shite couriers of our own, I think this was one of 2 fedex deliveries I have had in my life, mostly they are only ever used if I buy an item from China/Korea etc which I rarely do anyway :)

    All I did was pay the price of the monitor and receive it 3 days later.

    This is strange... Not sure if it's just a California thing.

    Hoping FL doesn't get this either.

    I've received many international packages here in CA and have never paid a customs fee. On numerous occasions, the people abroad who receive the packages I send out usually pay a nominal customs fee.

    Did the person @ FedEx bother to explain why you are supposed to pay a fee? Also, is there any shipping exception when you check the tracking number on the FedEx Website?

    If you're responding to my comment, It was a letter I received from them 2 weeks after they delivered the monitor asking me to pay the customs charges, nonetheless letter is now being recycled lol

    Well I just filled up the forms. It didn't say that I have to pay anything though.
    So I really hope that I wouldn't have to pay anything regarding the customs.

    I know it's a long shot but is there anyone else here that's from California that ordered something from red-cap that has to go through all these stuff?

    You might want to ask over on OCN if you don't get a response here.

    I don't have to pay anything regarding the customs anyway. So I think I'm still good.

    It depends, the pixel density helps with aliasing so I run about 1/2 the AA I do on my TV. So in BF 3 on my TV I'll run 4xMSAA and post processing off. On the Auria I can't tell the difference between 4xMSAA or 2xMSAA so I run 2x which give 5-8 extra frames at that res. But yeah it comes down to which titles you plan on playing. Metro Last Light +AA @2560x1600 will get choppy I suspect but it should still look good with-out AA.

    You're lucky dude: i ended up paying almost 50% the monitor + shipping in custom charges.

    This is what i ended up paying in government ripoff charges.

    Yea, I paid like £40 customs charges for my first one, though 140 euros is blatant daylight robbery, did you enjoy it when your government bent you over and gave you a good rodgering without even so much as a bit of lube or a kiss afterwards? :laugh:
