Default Query - Purchasing From Dell Canada

Anyone have any experience purchasing from Dell Canada?
Shipping method and
Process / Shipping time to Westcoast?

If I purchase online is it a week to two week fiasco or is it fast....for example ordering anything from NCIX, DC or BD is never longer than 2 business days..

I ordered 2 monitors. I am in NB, got them in 5 business days from order date. (Ordered Saturday, arrived Friday). They shipped with Purolator.

I've had good experience with Dell, I believe it took less than a week, but I don't quite remember. I remember the expected arrival was about 1 week later than when it did arrive. But basicly everything was good... All this was shipped to the East coast.

Depends on the "lead" time, I once waited 3 weeks for a monitor(23") because they were being "built", and another time I got it in less than a week(my 30") so it depends.

In anycase I have little to no bad things to say abou Dell Canada's online store.

I've received some of my goods from Dell overnight with no special shipping options. The monitor I ordered recently took four business days to arrive.

Thanks again to all....purchased...now wait... ;) Just hope the 16:9 doesn't bug me as I've been used to 16:10 for so long...but damn, just can't justify that 30" cost....hopefully the 27" will be easy to get used to ;)

I've made a few purchases from Dell.ca & all have been good experiences. Watch the lead time & you'll be ok. The y often have deals which include free shipping but unlike some other online vendors, free doesn't mean slow. My shipments have all arrived in 1 to 4 days.
