Was browsing around and noticed that The Encyclopedia of Judaism was costing 349.95. I knew that it was in one of the collections sold on the Logos website, and headed to Logos.com to see which collection it was in and the dynamic price.

I could purchase this Encyclopedia in one of three collections: 

A. The Cultural Concepts Collection for 162.70

B. Judaica Reference Library (36 vols.) for 166.38 

C. Judaica Research Library (220 vols.) for 343.80

In each case I would acquire several more volumes that are valuable to me.

These prices are my dynamic price. Your cost will probably be different based on what you own.

The only advantage I can see to buying from the noet store, would be for someone who is bothered by the abundance of Christian literature on logos.com and just want access to classics. The noet store does NOT include most of the Logos books, but as far as I know, the logos store includes ALL of what is available on the noet site. You will find more books on Plato in the logos store than in the noet store.

With that in mind, it is also easier to buy a product on noet without realizing that it is included in a collection on logos.com that would be much more advantageous. That's another reason not to buy from there. I have actually never bought anything there (only got freebies and did all my purchases through logos.com). I do know that on vyrso.com I cannot use my logos credit. I don't know how it is on noet. If it is the same as vyrso, that would be another reason I would not want to shop there.

Perhaps someone can point to a reason why it could be advantageous to shop through the noet store?

afaik Every resource available on Noet.com is also available on Logos.com. I can not see any advantage to shopping Noet.com. 

I come to two conclusions reading the initial post;

  1. It is better to buy in bulk
  2. caveat emptor

I have the same problem with Verbum.com, so I do all my shopping on Logos.com.
