hmm, reviews are pretty good as well, still cant believe 4000:1 contrast with 2ms response. viewing angle is just 15-20 degrees less than many, but its definitely not a problem. as you wont be peeking on it form side.

I order a lot from TigerDirect in Canada, and I have found that if that carry other models of the same brand (and the do carry Sceptre) that they might be able to order it for you.
