Another Indonesian company. You should consider the possibility of warranty difficulties. If saving around $125 makes it too good to pass up, I would consult your credit card company to be sure that you are covered . Their site does state, "We are Responsible 2 ways return order.customers will not charges anything." Hmmmm....
As a vendor, I am amazed what can put on the internet. The country is one significant finding, but the lack of SSL or https is another. There are different levels of SSL. The higher the SLL level, the greater the authentication of the vendor being confirmed as a true legitimate business and of course, the greater the cost to process the SLL. In this case, there was no SSL. Also, in this case, one part of the checkout page, they state PayPal, but in the last page, they only had options for MoneyGram and WireTransfer.

Two red flags for me - first, they make too big a fuss about "holding to the highest ethical standards" on their "About Us" page. Long experience tells me that the more somebody tells you about how ethical they are, the more tightly you should hold on to your valuables.
Second, they can't spell "Healthy". Maybe that's just me, but I won't buy from anybody who can be bothered to proofread their website.
Not to mention the other appliance scam sites that have come out of Indonesia, of course.
