I bought the XTR695 back in mid-November (this year, '08) and did a lot of research beforehand, including looking at a lot of prices. I think you may be mistaken on the model, I don't think he purchased the XTR695 for $109, unless he bought a unit from an individual selling one used. Street prices I've seen are mostly in the $150-$180 range, and even at the upper end of that price spread, the unit is still a bargain. I love a good deal as much as the next guy, but I'd be really afraid to buy one selling that far below normal price.
