Has anyone ever ordered from here? How is there service? This seems like an extremely good deal.

Outpost.com has been around for many years and are a pretty solid ecommerce store. They have been a little inadequate about the amount of packing material used in the past (at least for a few of my orders), but I think that was a momentary hiccup. Be aware that if you live in a state which has a Fry's Electronics store (AZ, CA, GA, TX, NV, WA, IL and IN), Ohio or Connecticut (I think Outpost's offices used to be here), you will have to pay sales tax along with the shipping fees.

Thanks for the post Jack. I just ordered and with ground shipping and OH tax it came to $22.71. I checked on Amazon and it was $37.48. This is a new repackaged, lower priced set.

I have bought a few sets like this at great savings for the first season. I am glad that they want to get us hooked. I would have never purchased them otherwise.

I will use money my brother gave me for Christmas. It is something he would like too.

Thanks for the link. This is a great deal.

BTW, the second tier shipping for this is like 80 cents more than ground. At least it was for me.Posted Image

Brenda M, I recieved that same email. I don't think it's because it's backordered though, I think it's because it hasn't been released yet. Or at least I hope. I guess we'll see on the 31st.

Are these new, reduced in price season sets the same as the more expensive ones? I know the packaging is different but is the content the same?

The only difference between the old ones and new ones is the packaging.

EDIT: Since this thread was brought up again- Actually Fox dropped the bonus disc (and didn't really say that until the set was on shelves).
