But you can't physically walk up to "Amazon" and buy the thing for pennies on the dollar -- you'll still have to order it and have it shipped to an American address or a middleman. And what's stopping you from having the thing shipped up to Canada?
As for that unit at that price on Amazon it's being sold by a third party dealer with only 4 ratings. Considering all other retailers selling this unit have priced it for $60 and up, I'd say what you're likely buying for $25 is a stolen or refurbished unit.
That's seriously you answer, Mike - that amazon is just an elaborate and the ultimate fence? C'mon, man!
And who cares if I can't walk into amazon? I walk into places here to do my research, buy it online and have it sent to a mailing house in WA state. It beats paying MSRP.
