So I came across this website with some phenomenal projector prices, it doesn't seem real and I was wondering if any of you knew them.
Www.pigselectronics.com
Is this a scam?

some prices do look good, too good... they are 1000's less than cost.

i'd also be surprised if there were really 66 brand new Kuro's still sitting in their stock room:

or 66(seems to be a popular number of items in stock) sharp elites

Yup, exactly what I'm thinking.
I wish there was a way to verify it.
If this is some sort if a scam, they sure went into a lot of effort listing hundreds of products.

Mr.G, thank you very much.
I think China says it all for me :-)
I tried the Better Business Bureau and could not find any information.

Thanks.
