been through nearly same experience ... twice !
once with a "cheap" laptop.
second time with a stereo amplifier.
now i accompany the advice asker and supervise the purchase !
richms: Just saw their ad with the "reporter" announcing a saving of $300 on a 2 camera analog DVR system.
The fact that it is priced so high they can take $300 off it is indicitive of the problem with dick smiths pricing. Same thing on ebay would be about $130 US inc postage.
