Looking to buy this camcorder.. Thoughts about a "cheap" online price?

We are going on vacation pretty soon and my wife wants a new camcorder. So we've been looking around and she likes the DCR-SR200 from Sony.

Looking around..

They have it at Circut City: $745.99 ... http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Sony-...oductDetail.do
They have it at Best Buy : $789.99 .... http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1165610938182
They have it at Amazon.com: $634.70 .. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1165610938182

And then I found it for $489 from http://thecameraprofessionals.com/pr...FRY9YQodHALr1g

From that last link if I get the "intermediate package" it comes to $789 but comes with this:

# Sony DCR-SR200 USA 40GB Handycam Camcorder
# 6-Hour Lithium Rechargeable Battery
# 2X Telephoto Lens
# Wide Angle Converter Lens
# Three Piece Filter Kit (UV,PL,FLD
# Deluxe Camcorder Case
# Full Size Tripod
# Deluxe Lens Care and Maintenance Package
# LCD Screen Protectors
# Video Light w/Bulb Replacements
# Introduction to Your Camcorder on DVD
# Aluminum Hard Case

I called them and they said all the extras are "generic' and are not Sony brands.

Thoughts? The web site says it is brand new and shipping is free so it sounds like a great deal but I'm always unsure about great deals. Has anyone dealt with this company?

Thanks.

I haven't heard of them before, but the reviews from resellerratings.com look pretty bad. http://www.resellerratings.com/store...aProfessionals

This place sounds a lot like bestpricecameras.com that is being discussed a few threads down. I would steer clear of them.
