The battery in my Canon G2 aged to the point where it barely held a charge anymore, but when I looked up the official replacement battery I was amazed at the price --- a rip-off any way you look at it. Why would I spend $50-$70 on a replacement battery when I can buy a brand-new Canon camera with better specs than mine and a new OEM battery for $220?

So I looked around for generic batteries and checked the merchants here on resellerratings. Some of them seem to be rip-off houses for sure, but 1800emart looked to be good for batteries (if not for toner cartridges), so I pulled the trigger on a $15 battery. It arrived in 2 days, fits my camera perfectly, charged up normally, and works perfectly well.

Will it last as long? No way to tell, but given that I can buy three generics for the price of one official battery, I'm very confident that this is a bargain. When I buy a camcorder soon, I'll be looking at this store for a battery with higher mAH.

This is my second PC from Envision. The first one never gave me a problem (unless I caused it, heh heh) and performed for four years solid before the motherboard got quirky. So I thought I'd buy a new partial system from Envision and transplant the best parts of my old system, just to save money and not waste perfectly good components.

Not only did Brian from Envision provide extensive advice beforehand on the parts I was considering, he advised me daily, until I was finished, on tasks I'd never performed before: installing drivers for each separate circuit on the motherboard, coordinating three hard drives (one new, two old; two different brands) for best performance, setting the BIOS so that everything on this Frankenstein's monster worked. Never once was Brian impatient, inattentive, or condescending.

You may save a couple hundred bucks my ordering a PC from Dell, but Envision give away much more than that in support time. If you've ever complained about a company shaving costs by outsourcing or cutting support, Envision should be your PC supplier.
