I'm shopping for a MX-800 and have found the best price on AVPerfection. I've not dealt with them before and was wondering if anyone had positive feedback on the company. Regular UPS delivery is $20 and it's $45 for 3 day which I found pretty high.


Appreciate the feedback.

Well, they're not an authorized dealer, so you won't get a warranty from Home Theater Master. The total for 3-day delivery comes to $370. For $15 more, you could get an open box one with Next Day delivery and full warranty from an authorized dealer like SurfRemote.com.

they might be returns or demos, I have heard of many people that went with them (go to remotecentral's HTM forum) and have not heard one complaint yet.

That's good to hear Anthony. I've spent thousands of dollars via the Internet and I've only been frustrated once.


I appreciate both of your timely responses.

From there website they indicate they opened them to test them or something like that. It may be a good way to be able to sell below retail and remain an authorized dealer. This dealer and one other are significant contributors to remotecentral.com and will provide an unbelievable amount of support on that forum, along with many other users. I am sure you will be happy with what you receive from them.

Received the MX-800 yesterday. It appears to me that if the box was ever opened, it was done in a surgical fashion :). The batteries were still in shrink wrap! The box doesn't look as though it was ever opened. I've not had an opportunity to use it yet, but it appears to be above my expectations.


I highly recommend dealing with this company!

Has anyone tried an Open Box purchase from BlueDo.com? Which is more reliable: BlueDo or SurfRemote?

I got my 700 from bluedo. It was the open box item that they have on the website. I had the same reaction as HeyNow, the batteries were still in the shrink wrap. The remote looked liked it was never used. When I ordered they had a special of free second day air on the 700. I highly recommend using them.

Sounds like both companies are excellent! It doesn't appear as though you can go wrong.
