    I literally called NCIX yesterday and I was right out told they will not be carrying it and its exclusive to BestBuy. If that means Canada only , I have no idea.. Pretty sure I dialed the US 800 #. is there BB in Canada? I have no idea but I wouldn't doubt it, as there HQ is in Minnesota which is a bordering state and pretty damn close.

    Company's do exclusive stuff all the time, they pay money to have the rights. Its called a marketing partnership, PC gaming and computers in general are so main stream these days and with the rise gamers spanning generations born from the last 40 years I wouldn't doubt it. The only thing bad about this is pricing for consumers. It creates no competition.

    This is the same thing when hardware manufactures get exclusive rights to promote their products on software. Such as EA/Nivida or exclusive maps for XBOX say for COD.

    I don't see a reason for them to lie as their basically turning away business. Call yourself and find out if you want.

    Maybe NCIX is out, maybe Newegg and Tiger Direct are in. Notice Neweggs place holder "May or may not be restock"

    I will say it again, and iw as even in shock to hear they sales guy say "BestBuy is the exclusive retailer.

    i called NCIX Canada earlier today and the rep i spoke with said they are not getting anymore units in when i asked to place and order on backorder. im sure they were just an idiot and i am going to assume they have pretty much sold of their current stock with them not having a restock in sight yet.

    indecently i emailed Canada computers and the rep said they should be up for order in 2-3 weeks at 879.99 CAD she is currently looking into a more accurate ETA

    i have not seen any news that supports an exclusive deal with bestbuy in my search though.

    The following retailers will have availability after 8/26. We are making them as fast as we can but we expect to sell outthe first few batches fast as there is strong demand. After initial wave, (into Sept) availability should get better. Not sure if retailers will setup pre-ordering (or if their websites have function to even do this), so we cannot affect the chance of you getting one in first batch. We can't say 'exact' date as every company has their own internal process to put products live on site/in store.

    if this monitor is being released in a week or so..Asus shouldnt be forcing their paying customers to beg for information.
    Take yourself a chill pill and read 2 posts above yours, someone from ASUS gave some information he's not just a Moderator, he's at ASUS HQ...that should be good enough to satisfy your demand for knowing what's going on.

    Exactly as Myk has stated .. MarshallR is the Marshall of ROGcity in these parts .. We have learned we can make 'bank' on his word.
    When he says 'this is what's up' .. that's what's up !!! That simple.

    Just relax .. we have all seen this over and over again with the anticipation of newly released equipment. Not to long ago
    the same exact thread could have been read inserting any number of products .. they are all among us now.
    This to shall pass .. patience.
    Be the cat, the mouse will get here when it gets here.

    DJD .. you did good bringing this forward and some of what is being said by uninformed, to lazy to find out, phone answerers.
    Now 'The Word' has come down from the mountaintop ... M has spoken !!! .c.
