Jim, if things worked out for you, great. But that is exemption rather than a rule.
From that site is seems they should all be in jail. I did not have an evil experience with them, although they were very pushy about all kinds of extra junk. I made it clear I only wanted the camera (and for the EOS 5D, a specific lens and flash) in the boxes, unopened. It was not that bad.

I don't appear to be the only one with a good experience there:

BestPriceCameras.com Online Store - Ratings and Info

However, based on your data I would not endorse them to anyone again. If you don't successfully arm wrestle them from the intial order step apparently the experience is really bad.

There are plenty of stores like that for camera equipment. They don't get shut down since they operate out of these places
Pictures/Photos Album: Brooklyn StoreFronts
and New York just doesn't give a damn.

BTW, search on that link for bestpricecameras using ctrl+f and see what their "store" looks like.

Hard to beat a Best Buy. They'll be there if you have a problem.

BestBuy sucks. Get it from either Circuit City which actually honors its best price guarantee. But seriously, BHPhoto is the biggest and best name in photography stores, so they tend to have the best reputible price or at least close to it.

Sometimes price isn't the only consideration... I don't think there's a BHPhoto down the street or even in the state...

Well she didn't put a location in her profile so how the heck should I know where she is? Plus, who cares if there isn't one? They still have your back.
