i've never actually dealt with them so maybe i'm wrong but whenever i
look at the grays online website (usually because you mention it, so i
check it out), something about them really creeps me out and they don't
seem like the kind of company i'd want to buy anything from.

They also have a nasty habit of 'accidentally' giving you the wrong item.

ie: You won model X-6000 and they give you X-5000, a model down without the bells and whistles.

They then hope you don't notice, or if you do they make it incredibly hard to exchange and get what you paid for "Oh, sorry we don't have any more of those."

I've seen it happen time and time again.
I wouldn't recommend anyone even look in their direction, personally.

I'm sure Russell will say he's used them for X years and has never had a problem, but these problems do exist, and if you search I'm sure you'll find many people complaining about the dodgy practices that do happen at Grays.

Be careful!
