As always, I urge caution when dealing with a place that you are unfamiliar with. I haven’t personally dealt with these low price outfits and I can’t recommend any of them from experience.

Most online merchants are honest — even if they aren’t naturally inclined to be fair, they know that a bad reputation spreads quickly over the Internet. That keeps many retailers in check.

Still there are always unscrupulous dealers who will try to hook someone with a low price. They don’t deliver good service, or the merchandise is faulty in someway. So be extra careful with a merchant you don’t know. If any readers have dealt with one of these merchants — particularly if they got a great deal on a Sony Alpha, please let us know. At the same time, if you have a horror story about a great deal gone sour, let us hear it

Until next time, stay focused! — Tom
