are these two sites in cahoots? i checked the sticky and couldn't find either of these sites mentioned, so that's why i'm making this thread.

they're paid-for top results on google and i am in the market for a Canon XH A1 and well...this price is absolutely unbelievable but PricingDepot.com has thousands of reviews for this company.

http://soniccameras.co​m …1191B001&produc​ts_id=4391 (external link) <--Sonic Cameras item page.

they do make mention of a blow-out sale that ends on the 15th...i'm just wondering if anyone thinks this a trustworthy place because i definitely would not mind saving roughly two thousand dollars and still get a US Warranty.

let me know your thoughts everyone.

http://www.fotospirit.​com …tails.asp?prodi​d=1191B001 (external link) <--Foto Spirit appears legitimate as it does mention the inclusion of everything the manufacturer included (unlike most bait scam sites)

has anyone ever done business with them? the price seems much more believable as well...

it seems that it also gets mixed reviews on resellerratings as well. hmm.

Read some actual reviews. Their customers don't think very much of them.

Yeah, they (being the not so reputable places) pretty much make up those reviews. And if you see a price too good to be true, it is. It's like seeing a brand new BMW selling for $15k.
