FC Studio software?
Has anyone purchased software from ? If so let me know please. Or is FC Studio for $250 bucks to good to be true.

I haven't purchased from them but here is one thing to consider. There is a legal version of Final Cut Studio out on sites like eBay at the moment that is not eligible for future upgrades. Now I am not suggesting that the retailers are being misleading merely that Apple has said that these Not for Resale versions can't be upgraded. Final Cut Studio (2009): FAQ

Hey, Thanks for the info

You're welcome. I've been looking for a cheaper source for that bundle myself. I thought I would need it for a project. I did see several vendors on eBay a few weeks ago that had it for between $500 - $600. That's still a bit out of my budget.

A lot of times those are also Educational versions or previous editions (ie: people liquidating FCS2) which are cheaper then the full version (and has no upgrade path), of course, Apple right now has made pricing so it's real attractive to just get FCS3 (FCS brand new, non-upgrade $999, educational version only a $100 discount. Now if you can get a killer deal on an unopened full retail FCS2, then the FCS3 upgrade is only $299...)
