When I bought my Epson 1080UB, a bit over two years ago from AVDeals.ca (now known as HD.ca)
Their Can$ price was the same as the best $US prices on-line at any of the AVS sponsors.
But it Gets Better....
-Free FedEx shipping to my door, no duty, no brokerage fees, no PST (Alberta).
-at the time the Canuck Loonie was only worth about $0.85, so buying from the states would have been More.
-Full 2 Year Canadian Warranty, no questions asked quick exchange program...with no border crossings. To or From.
-part of my package deal included a coupon for a spare lamp ($350US value)
-$300 Epson mail-in rebate, Cheque came from Epson USA in $USFunds
(came close to $360 Loonies
- AVDeals also threw in a freebie ceiling mount to sweeten the deal!
They WILL get my business again. Without Question!
My PJ is still going strong, never a single problem or issue at all in two years, and have yet to even use the spare lamp (still NIB)
(original bulb has over 1500 hours on it still works great in low lamp mode)
But I did call HD.ca to get a price on the new JVC HD250,
...Wow!, cheaper than the MSRP was on my 1080UB way back in Dec 07' when it was launched.
I may need to build another HT room!
