blackice912, did HP ever reply to your email, or have they contacted you again requesting you pay the difference?

Just wondering if they have realised their mistake and stopped trying or not.

only complaint with that monitor is that it appears its native resolution isnt 4/3. I realize 1280x1024 is popular, but it bothers me, espically in games

I say just make sure all of you who paid by credit card do not get charged again for the extra. Not sure about in the US but that is ILLEGAL as hell in the UK (although it does still happen). You have only given consent to the one transaction.

Apart from that, HP can do nothing at all really. You have the product, they don't. At some point soon, some bright spark at HP will realise that the cost of chasing up each monitor is gonna be so huge, and the customer relations will be so bad, that they will decide to just leave it.

If they have any common sense...

Oh, oh dear, oh deary dear. I have just seen the problem!

the CC's $300 after rebate with 14ms response time. The reviews has been great.

I found the manufacturer's web site (www.nexgen.com.tw) and they only list one different LCD display with 40ms response time.

you are probably looking at the 15" model, which pals in comparison with this one. google it up and you will see this being discussed in a lot of threads elsewhere and the responses has been great. hey, no one is forcing you to buy it, just don't regret passing it by later.

No. I'm looking at the same one. I saw some discussions, but no official specs claiming 14ms response time.

Also, CircuitCity only sells to USA and this brand does not show up in my country (company was founded in 2002).

Well they contacted me at 9am last time, so I'm thinking they may try again around that time.

isn't it funny how they always call when you're not there??? I've had MANY companies call my place at like 2 or 3 in the afternoon when I was at work, and I'd come home and see my caller ID have the same numbers every day...soo bloomy annoying

Nobody called me today - I might just call them up and ask them questions about this crap they tried to pull. I would record it, of course. :)

Those of you who got your monitors, did you install whatever software that was on the CD? I hadn't opened it, I had simply plugged my monitor in. Just tell me if there was anything of worth from the CD.

I can imagine not...there never is, just a color ICM file and a dinky driver (if you can call it that)

Had someone that used to work in marketing point this out to me :

The HP Web site states:

"*Prices, promotions, specifications, availability and terms of offers may

change without notice. Despite our best efforts, a small number of items may

contain pricing, typography, or photography errors. Correct prices and

promotions are validated at the time your order is placed. Please note these

policies apply only to products sold by hpshopping.com; reseller offers may

vary."

Note the 3rd sentence. That means the price they charge you is official.

There's no way they can back out of that, even if they wanted to.

Bamf! :yes:

See if this LCD will do for anybody.

Black Samsung SP1702 17" LCD

It looks cool and seems like a good deal.

I wouldn't give it back to HP because it's part of the deal and the deal is done! Screw them...that's HP fault.

there's nothing important on the cd, based on my quick look. there's just some reference documentation and then some auto-adjust software.

Kind of like selling your friend a basketball card for $100 when it's really worth $150, then crying to him saying "I want the extra $50"
