Can anyone recommend a place to get a good deal on a new SB 910 for less than $500?

I'm looking to buy one or two SB 910's for my D800E. I normally get most of my gear from B&H, but I'm seeing too many other places sellling the SB 910 for less than $549. I'd like to find a reliable site to purchase from, but I'd like to spend less than $500 for each. So far, I've narrowed it down to eBay, but I'm still a bit skeptical.

Additional Info:

I presently have one Paul C. Buff Einstein Studio Strobe, but I want more portable options as well, using the Nikon Speedlites.

I live in Orlando, FL, USA.

I'd appreciate your suggestions. Thanks!

Kea Photo, a store in Hong Kong (I think)

I live in Spain but I've ordered from them before and haven't had any problems.

Hi Sergio! I also live in Spain.

I guess you had to pay custom taxes when it arrived.

Could you please tell us how much it ended up costing you?

Gracias in advance

Actually there was no customs tax, they ship it in a way that bypasses taxes ( I think they declare a very low value or say it's a gift or something like that)? If youre in Spain you can also try dukefotografia.com in gran canaria, also no VAT

Digitalrev has it $449, and they are Hong Kong based, I think. I have mixed feelings about them as I've had both good and not do great experience with them. Does anyone know of a shop or website based in the U.S for a decent price?

Roberts Distributors has them refurbished for $449, you may be able to deal with them on that price though.

I know you have not had much luck finding the price for new but keh is a great US dealer and all the used gear they sell above EX condition is great and they have a 6 month warranty. I have bought a lot of gear from them with no issues. If you dont need ths sb-910 you can save a lot on the sb-900 or even sb-800

I would also recommend KEH, local store here in Atlanta, so shipping to Orlando should be fast, they have Like New Minus under $500.

Agreed. Possibly a 910 paired with a 800 would fit the bill. You can pick up used 800's for under $300.
