A simple search of seller reviews would have saved you a lot of time and trouble.

Yelp--Two stars out of five. A typical comment:

The next day I received a very informal email from a man asking me to call him to discuss the order. I call. A 10 minute sales pitch was offered to me trying to get me to buy a $150 wall mount and extended coverage. Additionally, I'm told that 'mandatory' insurance is required - something which they claim is listed on the checkout page (if it is, it's not obvious). Long story short. I don't buy the add ons and I end up paying $150 for shipping which was supposed to be free.
