“I ordered from here after reading SEVERAL reviews. I must say that they were all about the same scenario over and over again. However, I still purchased from them.
I saved screen shots of *everything* I saw on-line. Printed my receipt and the product description including the "box contents". I did call before I ordered and asked what was in the box and what shipped with the order (warranty, charger, etc). They did state that it was indeed in stock and their comments matched their web page and the OEM's (Sony) box contents.
2006-07-13 - Placed order on-line. 2006-07-13 - Received e-mail confirmation of my order. I paid via Visa and used the Visa Verify option. 2006-07-14 - Received a phone call stating they needed confirmation of my order. Hmm... this sounds familiar. Just like all the other postings here. 2006-07-15 - I called them back and all they said they needed was to verify my Zipcode and for some reason they didn't have my shipping zipcode. I said that it was the same as my billing zipcode that was e-mailed to me so I didn't understand why they didn't have it! Duh! Of course they asked if I needed anything else or any other accessories. I said no b/c I have another very similar camera and I am just upgrading so I will use my old accessories on the new camera. The sales person didn't say much after that and then stated my order should ship out soon. I did verify that it was in stock again before I hung up. 2006-07-16 - Receive e-mail confirmation that my order has shipped and it included a UPS tracking #. 2006-07-19 - Package delivered. Package and OEM box is as described with exactly everything I wanted.
They did have the absolute lowest price I could find (that was in stock). No sales tax. 2~3 day shipping at the lowest price. I even found a $10 off coupon on-line (paid for the shipping). Even though I knew my order would be delayed b/c of that stupid sales-callback thing they do, I am satisfied. It was a risk and I think I "beat the system". :)
I see that their web site states that they have gone out of business. Hmm.... Doesn't surprise me.
