Just letting everyone know that I ordered a brand new camera card from comp-u-plus for $19.95 last week and it got here yesterday. Works great and it is in fact brand new in the box. For those that were curious about it, it works decent. I wouldn't spend the suggested $150-$200 for it, but for $19.95, who can go wrong. For anyone that had wanted one, I noticed today that the price had actually dropped to $14.95. Here's the link:

BTW - No, I do not work for comp-u-plus and I do not get any benefits from posting this. The price was just too awesome not to share with others.

That is fantastic value - trouble is Shipping costs to the UK start at $50! Which makes it a little less attractive !

Sure, but with normal prices being around $140, $50 for shipping is still saving you a ton of $$$.

If the above link doesn't work, just go to www.pricegrabber.com and search for CE-AG06. You'll see what I mean by the prices.

You're not wrong there - some very sill prices around for the camera card - even seen one at $219.

So..... $66 (ish) including shipping is still a real bargain.

Thanks for the tip off.

I just ordered one last night biggrin.gif . Including shipping is was $29.90 also. I heard that the quality of this camera was not great, but from the sample pics I saw on the web, it is more than usable. I appreciate your finding this great deal. At such a low price, I couldn't pass it up. I sure wasn't going to spend over $200 on it, but <$30 including shipping is a great deal 8) .

Thanks Again

Picked one up, too. Thanks! Now I'm glad that I didn't get one for half off during the whole Office Depot sell-out phase!

Glad I could help out. I admit that the camera is not that great to use as a primary digital camera, but as an add-on gadget for my Z it works out fine. For over $150 I never would have bought it, but with the price from comp-u-plus I just couldn't resist.

I just went back to compuplus to order 10 of them... to then send them off to those intl. people, but it seems they have odd shipping terms...

shipping on 10 cameras is $98.65 (two-day). why couldn't they just shove them all into one box, and ship that out? it seems that they are trying to make some money on shipping. I think I'll call them tomorrow to see if they can change that.

I suppose if they don't change the shipping charge for a bulk order, I could still pick them up and just have those who want one pay $25 for it, and whatever shipping costs it is to their respective location.

maybe I'm just asking for trouble...

I was a little irked that they wanted $15 to ship a $15 item. I don't need 2nd day shipping; why should I have to pay for it?! So I called them and asked about this. The operator told me they were "contracted" to ship that way and he couldn't anything about it. (I guess their shipping is outsourced?) I asked for basic ground shipping but they wouldn't do it. I complained more and he offered to take $2 off the shipping charge; said that was the best he could do. I declined his offer and said I had to think about whether I still wanted to buy the item. Later I decided $30 was still a pretty excellent deal so I went back to the site and ordered one.

One other thing he told me: he said most people buy multiple items per visit and that the shipping costs then averaged out. Cheap way to get me to buy more stuff...

I think their attitude/policy is pretty poor. They should at least have a basic ground shipping option for cases like this. When I placed my order I complained one more time in the comment field on the order form. wink.gif
