I know this is a dumb question, only time will tell, but I'd like some inputs.

I just ordered one from AW on Amazon, mainly because I wanted a nice amazon.com receipt for the taxman. They seem to think that ebay is only for buying/selling used stuff.

I don't think you'll have any issues within the one year warranty period. If the unit is DOA or develops a serious problem within 30 days, AW pays for direct shipping back to SK. After that, you'll send it to their warehouse (I think there's one in Canada as well - at least they said this applies to US, Canadian and UK customers), and they then ship it back to SK - so you'll only pay for local shipping.

One (free) way to get an extra warranty that actually works, is to check if one of your credit cards offers one. Mine does (for all purchases in excess of $150), and I'm happy to report that they seem to pay out without much arm-twisting. Your mileage may vary, of course, and it'd be nice if you could ask someone who has first hand experience with that particular card.

No wonder you decided to return them, I know I couldn't live with that kind of flickering either. I hope AW can pluck out the troubled units at their end, now that the issue is known.

One more question about 2720MDP - this monitor supports DDC/CI protocol?

Good idea for the credit card insurance, but that won't do for me either; it would need to be on amazon.ca for it to work, I believe. My credit card mentions it adds extended warranty to a valid canadian warranty. I don't suppose this counts as one, correct? That and I highly doubt they'll consider ebay a seller. I guess I'll call Visa and find out.

According to my CC company: "Doubles written Canadian manufacturer's warranty of five years or less for up to one year on nearly all goods purchased."

Is there a written warranty that comes with the 27Q that mentions it being valid in Canada?

Hello there,

Short time lurker, first time poster. Been following this thread very closely for the last few weeks and was going to mention that AW is also on Amazon as well. I plan to order the Crossover P thru the Amazon site. Will keep you posted as well.
