It's also illegal for them to claim it as a gift. Some companies might do it, but if they get caught doing it they'll get in a lot of trouble. Individual sellers are more likely to do such things. Also in Canada the limit for no tax on gifts is $60, not $100, so you'd have to have paid the tax anyway.
True on the $60 gift, not $100 my bad.
Yes the monitor only has dvi-d input. You can buy other versions (cost more) that have hdmi and display port but the hdmi doesn't support 2560x1440 (not 1.4 ) so u might as well settle for dvi.
It also has no working buttons except the power button. It's a barebones monitor, you pay extra per component shipped.
I paid $370 for it with shipping included and they dinged me $50 at the door. If you buy the lowest version you'll prob pay $20-30 in Canada. Even with that cost considered, this is a steal.
