Has anyone ordered from DealCost.com? They've got a good price on a receiver I like, and I'm curious if anyone has heard anything about their reputation? Thanks.

Apparently a new firm with no customer feedback history

whatsoever. There are plenty of firms well known to be good to take a warrantless chance on a new unknown. Lowest published cost as a come on for bait & switch is way too common. Don't take a chance on total strangers, or else I have a bridge & waterfront property I'd like to offer you.

The shills seem to have filled all replies with too many happy replies.

The lesson seems to be the one with the lowest price is not where you want to buy.

They do the standard bait and switch. When you order from them, they tell you because their price is low, you have no warranty and thus tell you to buy their extended warranty, if you don't, you're lucky if you even get the order shipped to you.

This is a very famous sales tactic for these low-priced stores on the East Coast.
