Pelco, Is This The Worst Promotion Ever?

Maybe there is some time machine to 2005, but I am truly dumbfounded about the 'savings' being offered here.

Take a look.

This is a promotion from 123SecurityProducts but does reflect general Pelco pricing:


A DVR for $5,000 on sale? What kind of offer is that?

An extra TB of storage for $1,999? In 2015?

If someone could explain to me why anyone would take this offer, I'd be most appreciative.
