Both Avast webrep and WoT (web of trust) have nothing good or bad about them, not enough votes

You could do a google search with their name and complaints
Also check how long they've been in business

My setup:
TV: Samsung plasma 59" pn59d550, DVR: Cisco 8642HD, HTPC: Acer Aspire E1-570,
Peachtree audio DAC-iT, Logitech Harmony 650 remote, Logitech MediaBoard Pro Bluetooth k/b
Receiver: Harman Kardon HK 3490, Speakers: Mission m34i + Mission MS10 sub, Nexus 7 2nd gen

Thank you for checking on those sites, P4H, they are good resources I was not aware of.

BTW, I did a google search and one BBB complaint came up
Also, I never consider any reviews posted on the specific website itself, always look for independant review from outside

They are amazon affiliate & have 4.5 stars/5 based on 82 reviews
I generally think of amazon as thrustworthy

But... I find it disturbing they do not post their brick & mortar address anywhere on their website, only phone # & email.
BBB list them at 966 Nepperhan Ave, Yonkers, NY 10703, I google streetview-ed it & was shocked by what I saw

Why didn't you post link instead of typing it out? I don't get it.

It's a warehouse district. What's the big deal about that?

Well, for one, it seems to answer the how long have they been around question
This info is also missing from their website

In anycase, it is red flag AFAIC

TV: Samsung plasma 59" pn59d550, DVR: Cisco 8642HD, HTPC: Acer Aspire E1-570,

Unless I am missing something, it states right on the home page that they have been in business since 1981 serving the New york metro area, and have in more recent years expanded into an internet retailer.

I don't need snobs to tell me how to think, thank you!

I just saw that too, at the very bottom of the home page. My bad

Still, I would prefer clicking on a contact us link & get physical address location
I also found they are unauthorized retailer for a few brand names, so beware of warranty issues
