In the market for 2 massive screens... They had this on the Canadian day of deals yesterday for $550, or about $450 off the regular price. I don't have enough saved up yet, but I'm still wondering if I made a mistake by not jumping and getting them... The specs seem like something I'd settle for. Hopefully by the time I'm ready there are better options (and another round of deals).
