The price is about $180 normally, but this site is selling it for much cheaper.

Anyone know if this site is legit?
How is your experience with it?

It's a bit different. The HD uses a different kind of glass/coating combo which, at least for practical purposes, makes the filter much easier to clean. I've tried the HRT and sold it off because it didn't clean nearly as easily as the HD does. The HDs clean up about as easily as B+W MRC filters do.

Just received the polarizer and it is amazing. Took me too long to receive it though. But it was cheaper than other sites.

i ordered it on may 9 and they shipped on may 11. and i got it today. i think you'll get it before your trip if there aren't any weekends added in there. hopefully not. my calculations tell me you might receive it on may 31.

Just orderd my first filter from maxsaver.net. Have to say, been very pleased so far from a price point especially to the fact that they are always keeping you in the loop.
