Posted this question in the Sharp 80" thread, looking at different US retailers that ship to Canada. Looking to see if anyone can share good or bad experiences with ordering flatscreens online. By the looks of it I could save a good 1K to order from Abes of Maine for example.

I was in Visions 3 weeks ago, show then US online retailer 80LE844 3.9K price, store rep told me their cost is 5k-6k

just saw this week Visions flyer, it's $5499 for 80LE844, maybe you can go to store now show them
US online retailer3.4K price and see how low they can go for and pls share your experience

and in this week flyer Samsung 75F6400 is $5299 now

and in BC there's addiditional $42.50 environment fee pe:mad:r TV

I was thinking order from US ship to border warehouse and go there to pick up, but I just have a small SUV, will need rent a truck, and "Made in Mexico" no duty?

Well reading reviews on Abes of Maine...less than glowing to say the least. I think a guy could get the 844 for ~$4800 locally plus tax, I don't know if its worth the hassle to save $800 or so by the time you pay exchange, shipping, duties etc.

Was just hoping to see if any other Canadians had experiences to share with specific retailers importing flatscreens into Canada. Also thinking of "settling" for a 64" plasma.

This topic is of interest to me. Look forward to following the thread, hopefully posters can share some tips on the subject which can save Canadian members some moolla.

I have cintacted a couple vendors however was informed they font ship internationally?

Naturally, I further thought of whether the idea of going in person to make the purchase was worth it but with so many variables at play; I can't say with surety it makes sense.
