    Costco usually charges Tax, $34.61 for CA.
    Costco charges shipping of $16.63 when I checked.
    Total of $481.23, then take away the $30 rebate, add $0.37 for a stamp, $451.60 out the door.

    I bought a Planar 19" Black FP with DVI and 500/1 contrast ratio and built in speakers for $603 shipped twons back - one of Dells great mix-ups. Works great and is an awesome traveling FP.
    For those who are on the edge about moving to FP I highly recommend them.

    I ended up with the same Planar 19', but missed the deal from Dell. Cost me $660 to get it and a bit of searching. The Costco one still doesn't sound too bad though if you don't want to spend the few extra hundred.

    Keep in mind that with flat panels, that they don't look very clear unless they are in their native resolution. They end up looking blurry when displaying a lower resolution because they have to blend pixels to display it full screen. For me 1280 * 1024 is about as small as I want to go for everyday use on a 19".
