also, somehow someone called back 1 second later trying to convince her to get the 2208 again, even when my girlfriend put a block on her phonenumber so they couldn't see it
Typo?

Yeah, mine is listed as shipped yesterday, but the puro tracking # isn't activated yet (estimated delivery 30 Apr). Anybody know where they ship these things from?

I think that when I bought my laptop 3 years ago, it shipped to Mississauga in Canada and than to my home. It's probably the same thing today.

My tracking number is not working too.

You guys will love this monitor.

At first I wasnt too sure about it, but I still had my old LG sitting next to it. After some configuring, (and removing the LG from my sight lol) I wouldnt go back if someone paid me.

Just be sure to spend a couple hours playing with your brightness and contrast (as seen in this thread, most people put the brightness down to like ~10) before you make any judgements.

Enjoy them guys!

PS. Wilson, are we going to see some monitor review on the site at some point in time?

Not sure, SKYMTL would be the person who'd best know about that.

Aside from posted specs and features, I suspect that monitor reviews would suffer from the same problems that Audio card reviews do.... much of what folks are looking for in a review would be very subjective.

I called puro because my tracking number showed nothing. The girl said she had no information too, so it will probably be picked up in the states today. Did they ship overnight because of the time we had to wait?
