I think what she meant was that her instincts are telling her that this IS too good to be true :D

Oh, I thought she meant her instincts were telling her to buy! :lol::lol: ( You see now why the title fairy has graced me with that title )

In that case...I do apologize, and by all means trust your instincts! ;)

I decided to screw with them a little bit yesterday. :p

I sent them an email and asked about local pick-up at their "store". They replied that due to their streamlined internet fulfillment operation, shipping it would be better.

I replied that I could only do local pick-up at the store and if it made it easier for them I would purchase 2 of them.

A few hours later I got another response stating that it would not be possible and that they only allow pick-up for certain items like larger tv's?

So as a last ditch effort, I offered to buy a 60" Samsung LCD tv and pick it up ALONG with my cameras. No big surprise that I haven't heard back. I wonder how many people actually fall for there site?

I really hoped to jerk their chain a little longer!

I'm right there with ya, I asked if they had a few of them in stock for my new studio and if so, I'd pick them up personally...no reply :lol:
