Hi all, Staples has the MSI G27C2 144hz curved gaming monitor on for 379.99 right now, and next weekend they have an additional 10% off for teacheres, plus the 10$ coupon for email sign up. Brings it down to 332 if I math'd it out correctly. Is this a good deal? Anyone able to weigh in? Thanks!

Just switched to Bell and got their 3000 Hub, and noticed the connectivity, specifically to outside the house, wasn't as good as advertised.
