    Having decided to go for an infocus PJ (didnt make my mind yet if the cheaper 4800 or the more expensive 5700), I was amazed to find that current USD weakness versus EUR (and GBP) make buying in the US quite a bargain.

    I posted some of the prices I found in the attachment below.

    How can anyone resist the discount on us markets ? The saving can buy you a trip there and back !

    Does anyone know or did anyone already made deals with these 2 sites:

    computer online

    or

    shophiq

    Does anyone have previous experience with other sites that offer the same products ?

    they are good prices, the world round their are bargains, take japan or honk kong and you will find bargains just as good on various brands. However, you must take care because you are looking at having a foreign warranty and foreign issues. So number one important thing is to make sure you are buying from an authorised dealer..... generally you can do this simply on the manufacturer website, this should be a good sign of the quality of the dealer. If they are you can also expect that they should be able to help if the worst should happen.....i.e. you will be able to ship it back for warranty work. But im afraid that whatever way you look at it, there are risks.

    Also dont forget your import vat and duty and such
