Greetings to all! I am looking into purchasing the product listed in the subj line and have found a State-side online vendor that claims they are an "authorized Sony reseller" and are offering the unit at a great price (better than pricejapan.com without the heacache of mailing back to Japan in the event of a problem) with free shipping, plus 5 free DVD's! Sounds too good to be true..and I'm certain that it is.. The vendor is MCSi. (www.projector.com) They are out of Dayton, Ohio. They list on their website that they are in fact, authorized dealers..but on the Sony website here: http://www.sel.sony.com/cgi-bin/SEL/consumer/ss5/cgi/aid_list.pl it does not list them. Has anyone out there purchased from these guys before!! Any info would be welcome!
