Hi Folks,

Not sure which section this belongs in, but has anyone purchased from Cables On Sale? Any feedback? I tried searching the forums but didn't come up with anything. They sell all sorts of monoprice cable in Canada. Great for those of us north of the border!

No one? That's really surprising for this group! smile.gif

I'll probably give them a try and report back here.

If the following is any indication, colour me unimpressed:
Monoprice 10ft 24AWG CL2 Silver Plated High Speed HDMI Cable - Black
- Price at Monoprice: $10.82 + $6.92 shipping to the Ottawa area = $17.74*
- Price at CablesOnSale: $23.35 + $7.63 shipping** to the Ottawa area = $30.98 + 13% taxes = $35.01

* According to XE.com, $17.74 USD = $17.72 CDN. Even with some fudging my the CC companies, you're still looking at under $20, delivered.
** Local pick-up costs "only" $2! rolleyes.gif

I've ordered quite a few cables - as well as connectors and speaker wire - from Monoprice. I've always received exactly what I ordered and I have never paid a penny more (tax, duty, etc.) than what I was billed.

YMMV, of course. smile.gif

I think it pays to check both. When someone reminded me about that site a few weeks ago I checked for 100 feet of 12 AWG speaker wire. The wire was cheaper at monoprice but ended up cheaper at cableonsale after shipping.

monoprice $29.06 + $43.22 shipping via USPS = $72.28
monoprice $29.06 + $36.92 shipping via DHL = $65.98

cablesonsale $48.99 + $11.31 shipping + $3.02 tax = $63.32

I wonder if DHL charges taxes and brokerage fees?

In any case, we are still paying double the price than in the US. mad.gif

I have never ordered from cablesonsale, always from monoprice. Never paid taxes or brokerage fees; just picked up the box at the postal outlet after they left a pickup slip in my mailbox.

I cant speak to Cables on Sale....but my experience with Monoprice has been OUTSTANDING. Their customer service is awesome and very attantive, and their prices...are just plain great. I would go with a trusted seller like Monoprice where you know you wont have any hassles, even if that means a few more bucks spent.
