You mean this? thumb.gif

We know that, just pointing out that earlier today, no one else had it. Now another seller actually says he has 2 in stock, albeit it's more expensive. And why not? If you're the only one with any stock, you might as well charge a bit more, eh?

I think I might hold out a bit just to see if Newegg is going to stock it myself. Amazon's free shipping is quite slow, so I'll bide my time for a little bit and see what happens.

I kinda want to preorder from Amazon for $280 "Free Shipping" in case prices go up on the Release date and to be certain that I'll be with the first to get my hands on one

But at the same time I would like to get it from Newegg because I never shopped from Amazon and I'm well familiarized with Newegg by now, but Newegg doesn't even have it Listed yet.

Decisions decisions. baaasmiley.gif

Newegg blows. They charge a restocking fee for literally everything you purchase. Amazon is nothing short of amazing if buying directly from them. Even better if you have Prime.

Hey guys, just a few hours ago, Amazon had 3 stocks of these monitors.

Do you guys think the price on Amazon will go up when they are actually released?

How does compare to BENQ XL2420T? price, quality, feature?

Dont trust Amazons 3 stocks. I ordered when they said they had "2" stocks left. Once my order went throw and i got an email inside the email it said temp out of stock. There website says out right now so i really dont think I will get the first batch that comes out.

The in-stock status isn't exactly live, there's a delay!

What questions did you have about Amazon? I am quite familiar with them and may be able to help.

Newegg to me is absolutely hassle free and I love shopping there, I got all my Parts for my rig from them August last year. They are awesome! I called Newegg not long ago wanting to get a Refund for a Large Print Keyboard I had bought for my Parents for Christmas so they could see the keys easier. But I was 2 days passed my refund date, so the Rep put me on hold to see if she could do an exception and allow me to RMA for a full refund. After being on hold for 5 minutes, she told me that she couldn't get in touch with the department to authorize the RMA process, but that for my trouble that "Newegg" was going to give me a FREE $25 Coupon for my next purchase from them thumb.gif Turns out my dad had spilled a little grape juice on the Shift key so it was getting stock, after finding hte issue I cleaned it and their Keyboard is working great! No need to RMA. So I got the $25 and got to keep a good keyboard lol

Alright, thanks.

Basically I being looking online but couldn't find any direct answers. But the stuff that concerns me a little about buying from Amazon for the first time are:

1) What is their Return Policy, in this case for "monitors"? including What is the refund period and how long is the return Period?
2) What is their dead pixel policy?
3) In the case I need to RMA the monitor for an exchange due to faulty merchandise. Would I have to pay the return shipping or would they pay for the return shipping?
4) Do they have restocking fees or any "Hidden" fees of sorts for returns or refunds?
5) How complicated is it to actually go through this process?

I think that's basically all my concerns.
I know the monitor has a 3 year warranty it self from the manufacturer (Asus) but I'm worried about the "Retailers" Policy's, in this case Amazon, mainly because i have never done business with them before

Sorry I had a brain freeze there. I am only really familiar with the policy specifics of Amazon.co.uk, being British. tongue.gif

I know that some people buy monitors from Amazon (in the US) and return them simply because they are unsatisfied or they simply changed their mind. Unlike Newegg, they don't have a hefty restocking fee (15% last time I checked?) and they will handle the return swiftly and arrange the courier for you. You will have to pay return postage, I believe - unless the item is faulty then you don't have to pay anything.

It would be good if somebody with direct experience of Amazon in the US could confirm this though as I may have some of the specifics wrong. thumb.gif
