Default Sanyo HD1010 from Ebay?

Hello,

I'm looking for a new compact camcorder and found the Sanyo HD1010. The price is a much lower on Ebay than everywhere else. But on Ebay they come from HongKong. If I have to believe the feedbacks, all the Ebayers who sell the HD1010 cheap are trusted. But I've one question:
- Is it save to buy on Ebay from HongKong a Sanyo HD1010?
- Will I get exactly the same one as I get when I buy the Sanyo on Amazon?
- Why are is de HD1010 so cheap on Ebay?
- Is there another shop who sells the HD1010 such a cheap (220 pounds)?

I hope you will answer my questions. Thank you very much.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Sanyo-Xacti-VPC-...d=p4999.c0.m14

decision is up to you who to trust.

ebay seller, a dealer , that can offer at a lower price, and still afford to make $$ off a auction.

But are these perfect models you are asking?

Do you get customer support?

Do you get a warranty for your country?

what was the response you asked the seller?

As this is a sanyo topic, for the sanyo thread, you may be

2 responded to the ebay link and asked your inquerry

3 and ifothers that hang in the Hybrid, that may just own or purchased from a never posted link

LOL

we do hope you get the answer you're looking for in the Hybrid section.
