Quebec Acoustics made an offer by sending an email (contract), by putting down a $100 deposit we accepted their offer and by them not fulfilling our order, are they not breaking the contact? I know in Quebec they have better consumer protection laws than any other province so QA should be more aware of this than other retailers. I am disappointed to say the least. I would have just pre-ordered from Visions, even though I'm not a huge fan of them if I knew a month later this would happen. I figured I was saving $400 when factoring in the spare bulb and exclusion of 7% PST. Your thoughts?

Honestly, I would walk the 300 miles to the border and back before I gave Panasonic Canada a cent. Typical thug tactics.
Celica makes it sound like QA is making it difficult to get the deposit back. I think this is unfair. I emailed Richard asking for a refund on my deposit and he said ok. He didn't try to keep the deposit or convince me to take the epson or anything, just that it would be done tomorrow (I emailed him late in the day).
Anyway, I just sent him another email saying that I'd take the epson 8500ub if I could get one soon.
My general feeling is that of "**** panasonic" at this point. And with the exchange rate, QAs price for the epson is cheaper than US stores after you factor in paying less tax. And the warranty is a million times better. You only get one bulb but the bulb life is significantly longer, and it is apparently cheaper as well, although I haven't bothered to check.
I guess CIH will wait until I upgrade to a JVC in a few years.
