I thnk these are probably not considered from Authorized dealer. That said, I had a $1K equipment from Massdrop not work and they replaced it with absolutely zero hassle , and then went the extra mile to help when I asked for an odd shipping change. Excellent communication. I'd say there's not much that can go wrong with these and if they work well for 30 days, they should work well for a looooong time. I also have strong confidence that massdrop will be around for a long time - obviously a viable business model backed up by good service. Just a satisfied customer.
