Exactly. Do your due diligence before you buy expensive consumer electronics to find the item that has a high performance to price ratio. And don't sweat the purchase too much since it will be obsolete in 3-5 years anyway. New technology will surpass the best stuff out now and will sell for much less cost (and even be available at **Walmart**!!).

And you learn that anything with the "Monster" brand is extremely overpriced.
