I figured it would just be a matter of time before someone here in Canada started carrying these. Cuts down considerably on shipping fees and eliminates customs and brokerage Think i just might pick one of these up this fall.

$365 is about how much you would pay for one off eBay. $300-$330 + duty, direct to your door in about 3 business days.

You can find the "pixel perfect" versions of these monitors if you don't want to risk it. They're usually listed for $50 more, but most of them have an OBO option. I've read of offers being accepted for just $20-25 more than the untested versions.

Some sellers will adjust the declared value to avoid large duty fees as well.

Bought one last thursday, knocked at my door monday at 6 pm. Talk about fast shipping...

Box in great condition, monitor don't have any dead pixel (i'm no expert, but on all white and all black screen, everything is ok). 308$ US on ebay plus the 53 $CAN duty fee, i'm feeling this is a GREAT deal. That monitor is just gorgeous.

Any advice? All I really care about is no tempered glass. I wouldnt mind the HDMI input, but it seems they all have additional cost. I really just want the cheapest price without hassles tho.
