Would you trust this site (pcanywhere)?

I'm trying to buy pcanywhere for my mom's office, and on searching i've found it for about $250 Cdn here, and $179.95 US at the symantec website (those are about the same price), and I came across this site which is advertising it for just $25 US. I want to trust the site, but I dont know if I should.

Here's their site, does it look trustworthy to you? I dont wanna throw money down the toilet or expose my credit card to shady businesses...

What do you think?

I haven't even looked at the site, but if you're saying it's around $250Cdn everywhere else you've looked, except for this one place, I'm pretty darn sure that if you do get something from them, it's not going to be what you were looking for.

If you go to

http://www.pricewatch.com

put pcanywhere in the search box and you will see dozens of placing selling it for less than $25 (but watch the shipping) many of these places you can find info on at bizrate.com or resellerratings.com


personally I would not use PCanywhere
If you are buying Remote software, look into Netopia's Timbuktu Pro. It is THE MOST SECURE remote software made at any price. (that is if you buy the special corporate edition, the off the shelf one is still better than pcanywhere)

If you run XP Pro I believe that you have some options like run like PcAnywhere. Other software to consider is GoToMyPC.

There's an article at the above link that briefly reviews remote control software. You just have to register (for free) though, no big deal.
