    I just don't know what to do.

    I placed an online order last night just before I called it a night.

    When I checked my email this morning they had confirmed receipt of my order shortly after I placed it.

    So far so good.

    I just checked my email again, and they shipped the order this morning right after I left the house for the day, and I'll have it Monday by UPS ground.

    With efficiency like that, it's just really hard for me to justify ordering online from anyone else!

    Their prices are also very competitive and by giving us NAPP members free shipping few others can garner much of my attention.

    B&H Photo Video Rocks! :thumbup: :wav:

    I get the same treatment from both B&H and Adorama. I just ordered a lens from Adorama on Monday afternoon and it arrived at 12:00 today..... mind you, I did pay the additional $6 for 3 day service, a whopping 0.003% extra charge for the price of the lens.

    I love being so close to both places... I can use their standard shipping of 7 days or whatever and every time I have had it within 2 days! They are both great and I will be taking a trip up there on the 13th this month so I can see the actual stores!

    Yep - B&H really are outstanding, it's wonderful to deal with them. Have not had a bad experience yet.

    That said, I also love Freestyle, since they cater more to film/alternative geeks like me :mrgreen: and the service/quality is on par with B&H.

    I've no issues with Adorama, just frequent Freestyle and B&H more. :D

    We're lucky to have so many top notch companies out there!

    I've just used B&H as well. Ordered my D90 and Sigma 70-200 2.8 on Monday and it will be here tomorrow! I really couldn't find a price anywhere else either. Adorma was the same on the D90 but didn't even have the lens in stock. I'll be using B&H for future purchases.

    My only big online purchase so far has been from B&H, and they definitely lived up to their reputation for fast shipping and excellent service. Not only that, the equipment I bought turned out to be cheaper (including shipping, duties, taxes, and EVERYTHING) than buying it from a local bricks-and-mortar store. So they win on price as well.

    Nothing but good things to say from here.

    It seems like I'm ordering something from B&H at least once a week. Can't say enough about the service.

    Also had good luck with KEH and Freestyle. Each has their place. I try to spread the love around a little.;)
