GoPro HD 2 for 150$, too good to be true?

So, who takes the plunge?
http://www.alibaba.com/product-free/...95/Camera.html

It's 130-150/piece for minimum 10 pieces, and they CLAIM it is OEM GoPro.

The concept is that you receive all pieces and then ship to the rest???

I got an answer from the seller (in Malaysia) who asks $1500 for 10 pieces incl. shipping.
Anyway this is a heads up only, my limit for online payments is well below that

I'll take a couple (2-3pcs) if anyone is going to take the plunge.

I'm out ... quick search & chat with friends were enough to convince me of their bad reputation.

Falcon Heli Parts

I have ordered from Alibaba.com before but it was for small, plastic, inexpensive helicopter parts for the $17 R/C helis I got from woot.com. The shipping was more than the parts I believe but for the low cost of the order I tried it. I don't believe it was from an unverified seller, do not recall, some time ago. This camera thing looks like one of them too good to be true things...but what do I know. I ordered $13 worth of replacement parts from halfway around the world for a $17 helicopter !!!! LOL...just occurred to me.....

Beware, Alibaba is not a shop, only a sellers aggregator, so don't generalize bad experience you had with one seller to entire site.

Would be nice, but... Maybe he sells one for 200$, with claims that we could buy more, if it's real, working GoPro2?
Ask for this?

Given it is an unverified company and googling their company name brings up a company that is apparently a "Manufacturer of Instantaneous Water Heaters, Solar Water Heaters.", I wouldn't be very confident it's genuine.
