please add shipping, duty and applicable taxes, it will be ridiculous. I was all over the new dell display until i did a little math.

I looked at both 20" and 24", looked amazing, but you will be lucky if you receive a perfect spotless display.

Well, tigerdirect is in markham, why would you get it shipped if you live in the GTA? Just call ahead to see if they have it in stock.

Plus, there are no duties, I have ordered stuff online from them, the cost that is calculated on the website is the final cost, no hidden stuff.

Ive been looking for a good deal on this monitor for a while now, just waiting for a good price to come up.

Youre saying that this monitor is on Tiger Direct for $680?! Post a link! They are $949 on dell.ca right now!

aren't CRT's better than LCD's?

* poorer viewing angle
* higher price
* problems with contrast ratio and response time
* less accurate colour performance

i know designer's can't use LCD monitors,
but for games, which would be better? =/
