Very suspicous to me...they don't except credit cards, pay pal, or cash...just some e-gold crap. WTF...Is anyone close by to that address or has anyone heard of these people? I wouldn't mind picking up a 50" plasma for 3 grand.

That's what I was talking about. a 42 inch. Still looks like a decent deal but unsure of the quality.

I am an authorized dealer for Panasonic and Pioneer. These prices are about half of my wholesale cost. How can this be possible? If it is true, count me in for (12) Sony 42s and (24) Pioneer 50s. They even claim current model.

I wouldnt hold my breathe. Lets see what happens after someone visits the address.

I too am an authorized dealer for both. Those prices are waaaay below what I can buy direct from MFG. Plus right now all plasmas are usually in real short supply (back ordered) so I don't thing they need to dump them at cheap prices. Ya know, supply & demand.

Like Andy says, I'll take everything he's got. These are probably refurbished or repaired or maybe just a scam.

Steer clear.

A 50" for 3K ??? Something doesn't sound right to me. Just a year ago it seems a 36" was going for around 10K. Wardey
