I took adavantage of this deal after my friend told me about it. It has been this price for about a month now. The ONLY thing I see that is a little weird is that the directions in one of the books are in a different language and that the blade doesn't look like it does in the other Cricuts or in the instruction manual. I played with mine a LITTLE bit this last weekend and it seemed just fine. When I have time I will try some more but as for now...it seems legit.
