    Did you happen to notice that they are asking !!!!! $699.00 !!!!! for an
    un-branded 1GB CF card?!?!?

    This place is screwy at best...
    ....Totally bogus/crooked at worst (and this is by far the most likely fact).

    I wouldn't touch this deal, but I suspect a call will reveal much.

    Don't call with a credit card in the same room as you, much less in your
    hand...

    In addition to my other post...

    Notice that next to "Availability" it says: "Order now"...which is
    absolutely NOT an indication that they actually have a 10D in stock.

    This looks like a big fat scam.
    Also... When a place like this throws words in like "Pro" next to many of
    their accessories, it's usually a rip-off joint.
    After all... What "Pro" would be buying a 64MB CF memory card for !!!!
    $129?!?!?!
    256MB cards from SanDisk can be had for $40.

    In that case...I'll be sure to let you know when my new slick web-site is
    ready to sell you that ocean-front property in Arizona.
