In the last several months several new websites have opened in Canada selling
Plasma screens, LCD Screens and video projectors for what appears to be
bargain prices. THESE UNITS ARE GREY MARKET
PRODUCTS WITH NO CANADIAN WARRANTY. FAILING TO DISCLOSE THIS FACT TO
THE CUSTOMER IS HIGHLY UNETHICAL AND MAY BE CONSIDERED FRAUD.
IF THESE PEOPLE "FORGET" TO MENTION THE LITTLE FACT YOU HAVE NO
WARRANTY, WHAT ELSE ARE THEY FORGETTING TO TELL YOU???? Refurbished?? "B
Stock" etc etc ???
Should you decide to " risk it" and buy grey market. We now offer
extended warranties that will cover USA products in Canada click here
If a deal seems to good to be true........
PLEASE NOTE: ALL PRODUCTS SOLD ON HD.ca COME WITH FULL CANADIAN
Additional "New York" scams presently being played online in Canada
Advertising prices that are already discounted for cash then adding
2 to 3% for credit cards.
Advertising Free shipping on products , then the fine print puts a
ridiculously low weight restriction. IE TVs you pay freight but if you
spent $3k on a 5 lb projector, it ships free ground.
Fake reviews: Look for 100% satisfied, clearly a sign of fake or
incentive induced reviews. ie "If you give me a review, I will give you
$10 off next time"
Businesses claiming to be in business for years, despite website
being registered only a few years ago. you can check website
registration at www.internic.ca
Also watch out for some smaller sites claiming to have SSL or
credit card security. Look for HTTPS in the url and a Lock in your browser,
No Lock, no security and your card info can end up anywhere.
Many Canadian manufacturers have lowered their costs to the point that in
many cases it is not worth importing a product from the US. If
the product is much more expensive in Canada then you may wish to look at
bringing the unit up from the US. Our US partner sites
www.Plasma.com can import products for
you at a very very reasonable cost. What's the difference
if we do or they do??? We tell you that its "grey market" and we don't hand
you little surprises like a brokerage fee and duties owed when it gets to
your door. and our 30 day replacement warranty applies in addition to the US
Example Import prices:
42 inch plasma: 200 USD over our US price
LCD TV's 20 inch and below $ 75 USD 21 inch to 29
inch $100 30 Inch $150 USD
