    I actually thought that Newegg delivered to canada?

    If not then we may have a problem as I am already reaching the character count for the first post. I suppose what I could do is just have a section that says 'recommended retailers' rather than linking directly to the product.

    What will be most useful to people?

    Better still, a forum admin could up my character per post allowence

    Ive updated all the URLs to this now so that should give me some space, Ive also added a section at the bottom that shows recommended retailers for each country so that I can post a single link per item, but then at least you have access to other links so you can compare prices. Obviously if anybody knows any other decent retailers give me the details and ill add them.

    Yes, but you have to use there Canadian website, [URL="http://www.newegg.ca/"]Newegg.ca[/URL] , your using [URL="http://www.newegg.com/"]Newegg.com[/URL], which is there American Website.

    Though i will share my Canadian online shopping secret, and that secret is [URL="https://secure.ncix.com/customercare/#pricematch"]NCIX Pricematch[/URL], which will guarantee you to get the lowest price available online, and in order to find that lowest price, use the almighty [URL="http://www.shopbot.ca/"]shopbot[/URL], it will show you the lowest prices it can find, it does pretty good, but f your determined to find cheaper prices you could always go hunting yourself, which sometimes pays off.

    So in short, use [URL="http://ncix.com/"]NCIX[/URL] to shop if your a Canadian (they also have an [URL="http://www.ncixus.com/"]American store[/URL]), if you can't find what your looking for, search [URL="http://www.newegg.ca/"]newegg.ca[/URL].

    Ah, my bad. Ive added this and NCIX to the recomended retailers. I also used NCIX for the CAD link

    Im still having problems finding those monitors for both the US and Canada, as someone else said, this is probably due to regional naming on the model number. Anybody got any ideas what these might match to?

    Also i wanted to add a link to an independant review for each item, ideally I wanted to be able to use the same site for all items so that the reviews can be comparable. I was trying CNET reviews as a coverall but even they dont have everything. Anyone know any alternatives?

    It was the closest like for like that i could find... I did that for the samsung too. Spec wise they are pretty similar but your right they probably arent the same.

    If someone could find me the right ones, that would be appreciated!

    Ill add your other URL

    Of course your main problem here is that your restricting yourself to one post..

    I have edited my fist post to cover mice so If you do Keyboards in your second post and ask the others to do the same for the next section then there will be plenty of space to add more without running out of characters...and less work for you if we each look after our own section .
