have you checked ebay? the auction there is looking very good to me, they tell me that are Sony certified, the price is lower than B&H and has a great accessory kit....

not sure what to do myself.

Thanks for the advice. B&H is the place to shop, fast and reliable.
I must admit I did try Broadway photo first, bad expierence. My advice is to stay away. Thanks again.

Online resellers

As a sales engineer (new title) for a major Ohio broadcast equipment reseller, I very strongly encourage people to be aware of the past actions of the companies they want to give their money to. Looking for the DSR-PDX10 online I found a site advertising it for $1300 or so. I really doubt it since the actual cost from Sony is so very much higher than that.

Doing a quick search for "Broadway Photo Complaints" via google will turn up some good links, as will a quick search for any store and "complaints". Please watch yourselves.

Here are a few of those links that are especially helpful:

http://www.resellerratings.com/seller1995.html
http://www.pcworld.com/howto/article/0,aid,107855,00.asp

The second link is a 5+ page article from PC World magazine on the sad state of affairs industry wide. Please pass it on. I am not trying to single out Broadway Photo but they are prominently mentioned in these types of links.

Happy buying,

Sean McHenry
