Default Buy monitor from Dell directly vs NCIX

I heard stories about how buying from a Dell monitor from a US e-retailer somehow ends up forfeiting dell's 'special warranty' and sticks you with 1yr basic warranty.

is this true for canadians? If i can just buy a monitor from NCIX and not wait for Dell to ship it, is there any reason not to buy it?

Just read the "warranty" section on the NCIX page. I think it differs between monitors.

I would still go with ordering from Dell directly though. Usually they have sales too.

You will need to re-register any Dell products bought from NCIX with Dell. This will involve NCIX providing you with a form stating they are transferring the warranty to you. It isn't an easy process.

Not sure what model you're looking at, but the 24" UltraSharp is on-sale currently: Dell UltraSharp 24 Monitor - U2412M : Parts & Upgrades | Dell Canada
