    I've ordered a few things from them, including a smart phone. I never had any problems.

    I've also purchased from them. No problems. However you cannot order during Sabbath day hours.

    They are a reputable dealer in my experience. I no longer order from the US since learning that the warantee is not applicable out of country. I had ordered camera lenses from them... fast delivery, the pricing is competitive. They are all in all a good company to deal with IMO.

    I ordered a counter weight set and waited for it to be shipped. Then after calling I was told it was on "backorder". Each time I called to check on it I was given another shipment date but eventually after months I had to end up cancelling the order. Seemed like I could never talk to the same person twice. I ordered it from a different vendor and got it in a few days. That was the only experience I had with them and to be fair it was a Meade product.

    Excellent vendor. I always use them if they have what I want as opposed to other vendors who have the same. Very fair prices, fast delivery and as yet only had to return one item which they replaced even before receiving the defective one back.

    I've ALWAYS had great luck with them. First, I don't have to pay 7% sales tax and they always get your stuff to you ASAP and most times, if it's expensive enough, they give you free shipping! I buy mostly cameras for terrestrial use, just because I buy most of my AP stuff from High Point Scientific, but B&H has mostly the same stuff..it's all A quality.
    Hope that helps!!

    I have been a B&H customer for over 20 years. Never have had a problem. They are fast shippers and if your order is over $49.00, it ships free, sometimes even cheaper priced items ship free. They are rated A++++ in my book.

    I've bought a lot of stuff, from telescopes to vibe pads, from them over the years. I've always been well satisfied.
