Default How Legit does this site look

http://www.yourdigitalelectronics.com/index.php

This is what I would like to order for my girlfriend,..... but on any other major site, (i.e. amazon.com, or costco.com its ~$210). So a 3rd party site having something that cheap worries me.

Maybe they just aren't authorized so they can sell at whatever price they want, you think that is it? It looks safe enough with the stickers (i.e. credit cards and hackersafe).

If it's too good to be true, then buy elsewhere. Better to spend that extra money, then to have lost it.

not at all. when you do the 'tested hacker safe' it links to a javascript popup on that company's server, and none of the links work on it. if was really it would be like the one here (I have shopped here before, and I know it is legit): http://harborfreight.com/

I wouldn't buy from them. That price is too damn low to be true compared to what's available at legitimate sites.

Buy something really cheap,and if they come good i would continue shopping with them.


EDIT; I just tried that,and in the checkout it says "A minimum order amount of $USD 500 is required in order to checkout."

general rule of the thumb, if you have to ask, then dont shop there.

it sells on newegg for 230$, no way in hell could they sell it for almost 100$ cheaper on a site like that.

My general rule of thumb that in this day and age you should be asking that question about EVERY site before you give them your credit card details.
