Ah shit. I haven't gotten that email, but I'll post here and let you know if I get something like that.
I got hit off UK customs with my first Korean monitor, the 2nd one went fedex who paid the customs charge for me and then invoiced me after delivery they're still waiting for it
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.
It was less than I paid customs the first time (customs screwed me?? ) 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
If you live in the States, you shouldn't need to fill out any customs forms.
Seriously? You didn't pay them? LOL. I wonder what will happen if you receive another package from fedex.
This may well be true, I am in the UK and we get taxed for breathing, not sure on the US customs policies etc
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
I do live in California. They even called me regarding the matter. :shadedshu
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.
Ordered mine about a half hour before I posted here saying it was ordered, lol.
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
Oh, no that was directed @ the other guy from California. I know its different for you guys in EUR.
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.
OK after some deliberation finally broke down and ordered
Wohooo!! Mine just cleared customs and just left Alaska today! Hopefully i get it by Monday!
Worth it over a 27?
Every single pixel is worth when talking about vertical resolution
I don't know about that specific monitor though.
Not a great idea if you only have a 7950...of course that's if you're a gamer who wants to play newer titles.
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?
