What I find truly shocking is that you would give your Business to ANYONE that would even suggest a thing after they were garnering an enormous profit from a $23K TV he was looking to put his hands in your wallet for an obscene amount MORE. For God's sake you can buy a dedicated PTP T1 Line for less than that versus a $10 cable? Insane!
Having been a Professional Purchasing Manager spending Millions during my Career on Technology/Communications and other goods/services that Vendor would have been immediately cancelled and black listed as a Vendor PERIOD and privately an F YOU Buddy.
Vendors are a dime a dozen but you never want to deal with someone looking to STEAL from you! This isn't like adding a pair of socks or a tie to an outfit. This is obscene and should never be enabled and pandered to.
Enjoy your TV though but I would never deal with such a Vendor in my work or Home - I was mandated to have at least three competitive bids on everything I purchased and were anything like this attempted they'd be disqualified and blacklisted PERIOD!
