Default Ducky Mechanical Keyboard - Canada

Hello everyone.

I was looking into some mechanical keyboards and was looking at a few products.
What I want is a backlit, media functions, cherry mx blue/brown and no shiny bezel.

I've come across the Ducky Shine 2 keyboard and I was wondering if anyone out there have bought a keyboard from Tiger Imports, OCN, or Tankguys and shipped to Canada.

If so, is there a duty fee or customs fee that will be added on top of the final cost?

This is probably a lame question but, I just want to know if anyone experienced this.

Or, does anyone know any other places I can get a ducky keyboard?

If its coming into Canada and its checked you pay PST and GST (HST) if to Ontario
If its brought in by a major carrier maybe even a broker fee.

This is an update: (got Ducky Shine 2 Mx BLue)

I bought mine from tigerimports.net

they ship through USPS which internationally is around $30 USD.

If you're in Canada, Canada Post will take over once it crosses the border.
In the end, I got charged with HST and a handling fee of approximately $10

Keyboard is very nice, and the quality of the Ducky is very sturdy.
The board also comes with many features as well.
Overall great produce, and I'm enjoying it very much

PCHome seems to be the best option for us, no duties charge (although that is sort of a gamble) and $10 shipping. I've been looking into this over the past few days, and I'm pretty annoyed because PCHome doesn't even have a listing for the specific config I want, cherry red/white led full size, seems to be the only one missing lol. I know you already got your kb from tigerimports, just felt like posting this here for anybody looking for the same information.
