Default Sportster vs Sportster Replay & Where to buy?

Hi,

Thanks to everyone for helping me determine what pnp unit would be best for me and what setup would be best for me. It was between the Sportster & JVC and the Sportster seems a little cheaper...plus I love sports and that one of the main reasons I'm getting this!!

I'm planning on getting a Sportster in the next couple weeks. Now I have to decide whether to get the Sportster or the Sporster IR. It sounds like they are pretty much the same except for:

- Blue display color on the IR
- Different antenna on IR (little smaller?)
- Record 44 minutes

I do like the blue display color, looks like it would be easier to see in the sun? Right? There any other advantages to the Replay? For an extra $10-$20 I'm thinking I will probably go with the replay.

Also, looking around online and I found these buying options...just wanted to check and see if there's anywhere else I should check out. And just check on the reliability of the places I found...rather pay an extra $5-$10 and get it from a reputable merchant!

Another factor I just thought of. Would I have to pay sales tax if I ordered from Radio Shack because they have a B&M store in my state (PA)?

That would increase the Radio Shack price by about $11 if true...
