0sign0037 Buying advice...

Okay, here's the deal..

I found the camera of my dreams on Saturday when I was at Target.. Thing is it's $279.99 there.. so me, being the frugal shopper I am.. Snapped a photo of the price marker with all the camera info on it and when I got home I started my research.... it's a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H10/b Sony had a refurbished for $199.99.. but I read that their CS is terrible, their reseller rating is horrible.. so, even though it's a Sony camera, I'm really not interested in purchasing it from them.

I found one on ebay with all the accessories (case, mini tripod, 2GB memory card, screen protector) for $259.99/free shipping and NO tax. Thing is, I've never made such a big purchase on ebay, the seller has a very impressive feedback score, so I guess I shouldn't be worried.. but.. well.. advice is always welcome before plunking down so much cash for a purchase

Thanks!
Ash~

Never hesitate to ask an ebay seller questions before bidding on an item. If their feedback rating looks good you are probably safe. However, with free shipping a lot of sellers end up using the lowest cost shipping option to send your item to you. I have always had problems receiving my items when they do this. Anything that wasn't shipped to me via priority mail on ebay or Amazon.com has always ended up 'lost'. Be cautious of that.

I personally would go back to Target and pay the extra twenty just for the peace of mind. But if the one at Target doesn't have all the accessories with it, you may be getting a deal. Weigh your options, and good luck

Just another option.

K.. I might be being a pain here.. but I want to have a case and memory card for it too.. that's why I was looking at a bundle... but the amazon $229 is really a hot deal. .. I had a different deal from amazon, but it was from a seller Ace photo digital and their reseller rating was horrible.

You can get cases dirt cheap and memory cards are VERY CHEAP. Just remember, as I learned the HARD WAY. Most if not all printers and the photo printing machines, like Walgreen's and Walmart, the 4 GB is too much for it to recognize, even with just a few pics on it. I had to go home, burn the pics I wanted to print out on a CD and then take that in. So with that said for now I put my 2 GB memory card back in. And I only paid $9.99 for each of my 4 GB cards
