That's a good price on warehouse123, but I'm very wary, the site is basic and there is no phone or address.

I read some mixed reviews of them on the web, does anyone else have experience with them also shipping outside the US?

Also what about any more well known/respectible sellers that offer price matching? that may be a better option.

Found other deal: http://www.igearbox.com/product_info...29951736e337d1

$479 + $25 shipping. These guys any good? the site looks similar in layout to warehouse123

Two low-priced sources for the "Import Model" C6 in gold (both sold out at this moment in time).

Broadway $413:

Prestige $411:

Plemix $495:

RUN away - do not walk - from the likes of bwayphoto.com -- just check out this:

http://www.resellerratings.com/seller1995.html

Plemix is OK to do business with but all those other low-priced guys locatedin the NY and NJ area are crooks - plain and simple. Deal with them and be sorry - word to the wise - if it looks too good to be true - IT IS A SCAM !

I had to laugh at that resellerratings.com, Dell only scored a 3.84 out of 10 (lower than broadway photo!)

Warehouse123: not rated yet
Broadway: 4.11
Prestige: 5.42
Newegg: 9.29
Dell: 3.84

I ordered the VPC-C6 from Plemix on Tuesday, December 6, and did not see any change on the order status until today. Today I got an email saying the order was shipped (from Hong Kong) and the expected delivery date is December 12.

That looks like a good deal from igearbox, not only can you choose color but you can get a spare DB-L20 battery for $39 and a 1GB SD card for $49. Not too shabby!

The reviews from broadway & prestige were TERRIBLE, thanks a lot for the info Steve. Igearbox was not rated yet either.

Sorry if this a bit off-topic but are people being charged import duties on orders that are shipped into the US from Asia? ie buying from sites like Plemix or others based in Asia?

I'm told that, here in the UK, if i order something from a US or other overseas website it will be hit with duty and VAT tax by customs.

Thx,
