Beginning August 1, Mustek Direct will be selling the DV-5500 for $99.98 USD.:shock:

No, I will not be buying one .... I have a broken, $199 sample of this model in the closet.:blah:

This looked very interesting until I saw that the 640x480 mode was a pathetic 12fps. Otherwise this would have been given serious consideration by me!

If you had bought one, you could havealso looked forward to:
  1. Possible auto-focus drive failure requiring return to Mustek for repair.[/*]
  2. Various brands of SD cards not working... camera prefers MMC cards.[/*]
  3. A very toichy navigation control ... you will get the wrong choice often.[/*]
  4. Shutter hard to fully press without shaking the camera.[/*]
  5. Plastic tab on mode wheel breaking off.
