Was browsing around for 65" TVs and see these prices

These prices seem really, really low and that's a dodgy looking site - thoughts?

 

Apologies if incorrect forum.

I just looked at a couple of random ones and the prices don't look that different to what big name stores are selling them for.

Their logo spells "Electronics" as "Electonics". This would scare me off immediately. I guess Ingrish is a second or third language?

 They do exclude GST from their listed prices though. But yeah the Sony TV for example, is selling for $3000 at the official Sony website here.

They're been $1999 incl GST a few times lately at big name retailers so $2000 excl isn't a deal.

Oh true, just read that TV model more carefully and it's just Full HD, not even 4K.

Prices on the actual TV doesnt match what is on the initial list view of the TV's - usually $200 or more higher when you click thru. And no, it's not the GST portion, as the item view still excludes GST.

 

And what's with that horrid migraine-inducing blurry graphic at the top of the page ? Sheesh !
