crystalworks is on a distinguished road
^ For sure. But the sword cuts both ways. These vendors were sometimes selling quality Chinese/Taiwanese/Korean parts at huge markups when same stuff was commonly available through eBay and Amazon for a third of the cost. I don't mind being charged a premium for a quality product, but don't try to get me to believe your stuff is worlds better when it's actually the same product put into your packaging. Better warranty can be worth paying more, but that's debatable. I just can't believe no one else is talking about this. I saw one thread on a 5er forum and it was removed within 48 hours.

I was worried about Turner a few years ago as they used to be insanely priced. They've now fallen mostly in line with fcp, ecs, etc.
