Has anyone bought a GL2 or camera from 5starelectronics?

I am thinking of buying a Canon GL2 from 5stars electronics and wondering if anyone has bought anything from them and are they legitimate? The price they are selling the gl2 and kit for is $1499 after the $250 rebate and before shipping, but that is much cheaper than other places. How can they do that? What do I need to ask before buying from them. I would appreciate any help from someone. I would like to get a good deal, but don't want to get ripped off.
Thanks,
Sean Lange

Addendum

As you can see from Reseller Ratings this outfit seems to be a typical bottom-dwelling bait shop.

Our sponsors (B&H Photo, EVS, Zotz, et.al.) are top-notch dealers. But look, folks, even if you don't buy from one of our sponsors don't be duped by a rediculously low advertised price. If everyone seems to be selling something for, say, $2,000 and suddenly you find a place selling for $1,500 your hand should immediately go to your nose, not to your wallet.
