Newegg is selling the Dell U2713HM 27" for ~$649.99 with coupon code EMCJHHB62. That's about what I would expect to pay stateside for the HP zr2740w. The Dell has a menu system though so that's one corner not cut.
I really had no problem with the pricing by Canadian standards, the fact that this was $599, cash and carry and a ten minute drive from my house was a big motivator. -- Support Bacteria -- It's the Only Culture Some People Have
