    Ok, I don't know this company but here is what appears to be a tasty deal. Around $1300 USD regular at other stores, I was tempted myself to get this. Even with shipping to Canada and the exchange rate, it still came in at ~$450 cheaper than if I purchased it here. However, I'm going to be saving that money and using it to get RRSP's to reduce my tax owing this year.

    It's this kind of thing that makes me wish Canada had a better solution for buying monitors though. If you don't want a crappy TN panel you have to have it shipped and its going to take a leg to get it. Oh well.

    It's a 1700 dollar monitor here. I'm just saying if you want something that isn't crap it needs to be shipped cross country to get to me. Converted its roughly 1500 USD before shipping, so around 200 more on top of the going price on American websites.

    Not an IPS. The whole point of this monitor is the display technology. Sure it doesn't compare to a $350 dollar TN panel at 28", but compared to other 30" IPS panels at $1600...

    I can get more proof, this is an S-IPS monitor. The only question is to the legitimacy of this site. However, its going to be up to you guys to do the legwork on that one. I can't swing it at this time so I'm not in the market for it.

    My money is going into RRSPs (retirement funds) to pay down my tax owing to the gov't. I'd rather give me 1500 in 40 years than give the government 400 now.
