    Looks very fake, TAD can't keep up production for the solid colour Litespeeds (I assume since they're out of stock all the time), let alone "If Order Qty more than 600 PCS,Client`s required Logo Design is Welcomed"

    Yeah DHGate is very much cheap chinese knockoffs. Go through there and check out their "android " tablets.

    Here's a few warning signs, that something is not quite kosher...

    Fool's Day?????
    Our each????
    And
    I stay away from knockoffs. It is hurting our US based manufacturers.

    Yea, that's fake. Not only for what was mentioned above, but I think, besides their site, there's only two brick and motar stores that sell TAD gear, both in Cali, and I think they're both owned by TAD anyways. TADs website shows everything except muticam out of stock.

    +1. Only way to get a new one is direct from TAD. Low price is first red flag.

    If one were to call their brick and mortar stores, they might have other colors in stock...

    Just out of curiosity, has anyone tried contacting TAD with info on this seller?

    Thanks for all of the feedback! I figured it was too good to be true...just had to verify.

    You could, but there isn't much they can do. It's not like China cooperates with anyone in this kind of situation. I've sold a few T.A.D. things online. Clothes, bags, accessories and each time the #1 bidder has been someone in China OR someone with a PO Box, that when I look it up, is for an exporting business for China. They buy used over here. Send it over there. Replicate the dickens out of it.

    There's a miniature industry in China that copies TAD designs, with different "brands" each competing for customers who don't want to/can't buy the real deal. A few years back I saw a review comparing at least a dozen or so TAD FAST Pack V2 copies... and people think Condor is bad?

    even Flyye Industries has a knock-off of TAD Packs and it sucks...even their use of the English language sucks...
