See some used on ebay, some used on craigslist. But let me ask you where is the best place to buy a new vx2100? The "electronics websites have them from 1200 dollars... I bet those are the chinese models wiht no accessories. Amazon.com has it for 2300 ish. What can you recomend? I want NTSC us model with standard accessories and warrenty. THANKS :)

You should be able to find a decent local dealer; but if you want a good barometer of what price to expect from a reputable vendor, check B&H.

If you're ordering online, just make sure to do your homework on the reseller. There are a lot of operations out there undercutting reputable resellers by a grand, but they're almost universally bait-and-switch crooks.

Heard, Yeah I learned about the "bait and switch" tactics and to make sure to specifiy AMERICAN model and not get sold the IMPORT model. It's tough man, I remember just a year ago I could buy off of ebay with confidence, dang I can't believe the JUNK now!
