Re: Ripped off ? or a fair profit ?

Probably reputation means something. If the product was failing enough the reputation would tank. A competitive product has to struggle against the establish products with a reputation of reliability. If the product is sound and is less expensive people will try it and then the rubber meets the road. Reports of failures or sub par performance will get around and an attractive price will mean nothing. Inexpensive junk is still junk. Reliable manufacturers will support and stand by their product. Try getting that from some web link to Asia.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it
