    OK...this is kinda weird...

    Nuendo 1.52 for $230???

    B4 v. 1.03 for $42

    Somebody check this place out, and tell me what is going on! Something is not right here...

    What is the deal with this place??? I read the FAQ, and I am a bit confused. It sounds like they are burning the CDs for you when you order, and you aren't getting any manuals, etc. I don't trust it, and don't feel comfortable parting with any of *my* hard-earned cash...

    Some of the versions are a bit out of date, but for the most part, the deals here seem a bit "too good to be true". How can this be legal??? (maybe it's not!)

    Dude.....there was a HUGE argument on the Nuendo forums way back when about that exact same thing....I think it was on a different site tho...
    I would not reccomend you get that from them. It may not be legit and should be brought to Steinberg's attention...unless it's previously used and has no manual etc etc etc...but still...
    definate red flag alert there

    Yeah, I agree, As Lucille Ball used to say on her old show..."There's a rotten Cuban in Denmark".

    Something just smells fishy here, and I ain't going for it. They are selling older versions of just about is really a trip. You gotta check it out to see what I mean...

    I don't see how this is a legal business.

    This stuff is soooo cracked. That's why you can't get support.

    I recently saw a site selling microsoft "backups" for $9.99. They plainly say that it's cdr with no manuals...

    Kinda like "Yeah, I'm selling pirated $*^t that's totally illegal... What'chu gonna do 'bout it?"

    Seems almost too brazen. Like a trick, or someone with way too much ballz for their own good!

    I would say it's just people in some third world country or china selling on disk the same $*^t you can get off a 1000 different servers. :(

    TRhey busted a guy here doing this kind of thing. He was selling Playstatio, Xbox and computer sofwtare, by advertising on the internet. These guys are really fuckin' stupid. I really thiink they believe they ca't get caught. But tracing a website is easier and easier these days.
