    still dont like it. adobe most likely doesnt condone it. for all we know, you could get the CD's and they will be CD-R's with the software image burned onto it, and someone's cruddy handwriting on a piece of paper with the serial code on it.

    Its probably some sort of "backup" disk for people who "already own photoshop CS"

    Hmm, the site looks legit but I spose that would be easy to acomplish for anyone with even the most basic IT skills. They have loads of these things on ebay (not sending the box etc) but I dunno if i'd trust it. They say "No tech support is given by the manufacturer", which makes me think it's not authorised by adobe or whatever. They probably just send you copied cd's, but done well so they look real enough.

    I get those emails all the time. Very popular software for next to nothing prices. I delete those emails immediately...
