I will confirm Don's claim about the Nextag lie.
PrimeTime Digicam, alias Camera Sound sent me a short e-mail (5 days atfer my order) saying that the item was not in stock, but did not try to sell me another item, or the PVHD1000 at a higher price. The salesman that I spoke to on the phone basically danced around the issue, saying that they simply cancelled my order, and didn't charge my card. And that the demand for these units have outstripped the supply, and that I should check back with them in a couple weeks and call before I order next time to confirm availability.
It's interesting that he knew that this was about the PVHD1000 even before I mentioned it, so obviously many people have fallen for this false advertising.
It's obviously a scam, and he knew it. It's skirting the law by advertising and selling products that are not in stock, and not allowing rainchecks. I'm not expecting to be charged for the item, but it is a scam nonetheless.
