And Actually, I do believe its neweggs fault. How much work could it cost them to have a little logo that says separate fees may apply according to your state.

How would you feel if someone knocks on your door and tells you "GIVE ME 8 DOLLA! ME SAVE THE ENVIROMENT! LOLLLOLOLO , ME JUST WANT CASH!"
I bet you would not give him anything. This is my point of view, and I just not think they should hide that kind of stuff.
Your paying MORE then 200 for that monitor from what I see at the top.

It's just 8 bucks, if you can spend that much money then you can spend a little more and if you don't like it then do something about it, your a citizen and it's not neweggs fault.

I did not find the newegg link where they said the would charge me those 8 dollars.
There is like a $10 shipping for thermal paste, now THAT i would ***** about because they have free shipping for other **** like cases.

Seriously, you guys tick me off with your awesome radio shacks. Mine don't have a lot of **** and the **** it does have is expensive.

I know we got no tx-2 at radio shack or even mx-2.

The radio shack around here is totally devoted to home brew electronics projects, that and cellphone cases.
