    Hard to say... If it's a fake/scam site, it's carefully made.

    It looks like a bait/switch scam site to be. I ran across similar sites when looking for a SLR camera and just like this site, the prices are much cheaper but when you place an order you get a carefully worded email that says its out of stock and offers a "replacement" that is some old refurb crap that is actually worth much less than their list price.

    http://www.resellerratings.com/store/ProtechStore Notice how there are some clearly fake reviews giving it 5/5, however the ones who actually purchased stuff and took the time to write up a detailed report all gave 1/5 and mentioned counterfeit items? Sadly, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    It's clearly a real website :p As for it being legitimate, that's another question.
