    I got an email about this, and it seemed too good to be true. I hopped on over to the site and started to think about which products I wanted to buy (Adobe Photoshop CS 8.0, Corel Painter 8, etc...). Than it finally hit me: it seemed like there was something funny about it. I tried to do research on whether or not it was legit, and, didn't find much. I was just wondering if anyone knew anything or could help?

    Hmmm... Spam from China.

    Download software from China for 80% or more discounts off retail and you wonder if it's for real.

    Maybe you should e-mail Adobe and see if these people are licensed sellers of their software.

    i've seen a legit place similar to this, all you got was the CD (no manuals, box, anything). Unfortunately they blatantly stated they DO NOT have Mac OS X software. Bummer.

    Yeah, if you go to adobe you can find out if they are legit...also, if you have to ask it is proabably a scam or pirated software. Don't do it.

    So the pricing difference is packaging/documentation. How interesting. Well, we now know that a box and a manual decrease the cost of 3D Studio Max from $3,999 to $199. Makes perfect sense.

    Scams are amusing.
