I ordered two overlays online on Dec 27th and they arrived today. Everything that I ordered prior to that has never arrived and people are now saying any requests made earlier in Dec were "lost". I have a friend that called and they said they lost his emails but after pushing back they magically found them which drives me nuts as they are purposely ignoring older requests and just dealing with new requests as people are receiving their parts after having only called last week.
I think I better re-order the overlays. I ordered one in early December and I still have not seen it.

I think you should. I reordered all my outstanding stuff as it was all ordered before the overlays that showed up today

Depends on model # of your panel, check the sticker on the back of the LCD and just search eBay. At least that's what I did, although mines coming from China so have been waiting a couple of weeks already, though I'm in no rush.

thanks will look that up - its a M170ETN01 1

Also for those that have either a centipede or pacman cab - could you please measure the actual viewing area of your monitor ?

I have an asteroids which has a horizontal monitor and i am just curious if the ones with a vertical monitor have the same viewing dimensions. Mine is 13.25 x 10.625 which is a 17" screen with a 5:4 aspect ratio.

For some reason the vertical monitors seem longer to me.

TIA !

I bought 2, and sent an email in, they wont PM, I tried again and sent an another email and they still won't price match. Ah well, I'll return it then!

Worth a shot though.

Which ones did you buy, what did you send as proof and what was their excuse?

The picture you provided of the price. Their excuse was it was a clearance item and their policy is they wont match out of stock clearance item.

Ok, just ignore that email and send a new one. I had a couple of rejections and just sent a new email, of course it's up to you if it's worth the time but it takes so little time to send a new email I just send new ones until I find an agent that knows what they're doing.

Just wanted to thank the comments on this thread and thank a few in particular, kool1, TorontoR and swales.

This is what I have been able to do over the last few weeks.

Bought SF online for $329, price match online for $197. (sold it)
Bought 2 more SF with price match in store for $175 each. (keeping one and selling the other)
Bought 2 Pac Man with price match in store for $175 each. (kept one, sold the other)

Thanks.
You're like a 1up dealer!

;-)

How are you matching in-store? Just with the pictures?

Matched with the receipt that was first posted here. Was surprised they did it because it was Mississauga store receipt. Two were super easy, other 2 took a few minutes but it happened.
I went to that mississauga walmart and they would not match the receipt bc it's "15 days old".

****. lol Im SOL.

Getting a PM in store is a huge YMMV and getting one done is the minority
