B&H Website Update

B&H changes the layout of their website today by placing a new toolbar where the old green one was and moving the old green toolbar down below the new one.

Still easy to navigate and still so comprehensive it'll make you drool for some gadget, widget, or googaa.

the warranty isn't actually b&h- it's a company called mack. you have to be very careful to handle/store all of the related paperwork. then, when something happens, you convinve them you have the warranty and ship your camera off to new jersey. turnarounds are supposed to be slow, and some folks have had trouble getting them to honor the warranty (if you file away the form, you should be ok, but if you lose it you're s.o.l.) but it seems like they will do the repair (eventually) and the repair work is ok enough. but anything b&h sells should have a 1 year manufacturer's warranty, so it might make sense to just go with that and then deal with either a shop or paying the orig mafucaturer. sort of a gamble. depends on what the device is, budget, etc.

Just charge it! My Chase MC gives me a year extension on mfg. warranty. You have to produce the paperwork (INCLUDING monthly statement). Reimbursement was very fast.

B&H - Sound and Audio

Just wanted to put in a good word for B&H regarding music, sound, and audio! It's easy to forget their pro audio department with all the video and photography stuff they sell.

I recently decided to expand the music capabilities of my little studio beyond Acid Pro, so I started researching MIDI controllers, digital stage pianos, soft synths, DAWs etc. I never even thought to look at B&H, but after I had a nice music equipment list to severely dent my credit card and bank account, I checked out B&H, just to see what they carried.

They had almost everything I was looking for and in general had the best prices on almost all the equipment/software I was looking to buy! Yes even better than the other big music equipment stores that I usually like to visit.

Anyway, don't forget to check B&H when you're looking into music/audio equipment.

B&H Photo pack & ship on Saturday?

Ordered a few in-stock things from them early yesterday online (Friday) and I need them by next Saturday. Selected 3-5 day shipping and I hope this won't be a problem.

I just noticed my order is just sitting there idle and "processing". I checked their store hours and find it strange they're actually closed on Saturdays but are open Sundays - which might just be the sales department.

I assume the shipping folks won't be back till Monday. No big deal I guess. At least I know it's coming from a reputable source.

UPS typically doesn't ship on Saturdays; sometimes it can take B&H up to 48 hours to ship the item(s), and sometimes they ship from different locations so you can receive one before the other, but they'll let you know when the order ships. If I order something Sunday afternoon it normally ships Tuesday afternoon and I have it Friday (in ATL). Hope that helps.

B&H is a family owned and operated business. These folks strictly observe the Sabbath, which is late Friday through all day Saturday. Their business week starts on Sunday. Think of it like this, a lot of stores you know are closed on Sunday for a particular reason. It's just the same at B&H, except their "Sunday" is on Saturday (well, actually Friday afternoon through Saturday). Hope this helps,

hello rick,

all my stuff came from b&h, no problems whats so ever. like chris pointed out, you need to look at their holiday schedule, during the christmas season they could be closed more then the regular retail stores. you could ask/ or upgrade your shipping or put an urgent on it.

i also found that any delays most likely come from ups.

purchased form b&h, online on a monday. processed on tuesday (3-5 days ups) thursday was thanksgiving. received my merch. on monday, full seven days. e-mails to ups got me the answer it is not their fault, the airline does not operate and so on. no shipping on friday, only next day and second day.

greetings

And since the couriers don't pickup on Sunday either, any order processed during the day on Friday would actually be picked up by UPS on Monday at the earliest.

Now that didn't click - It should have though. I did buy a few small ticket items at newegg at the same time (things B&H doesn't carry) and the package is in Iowa already.

I didn't select the orvernight or 2nd day options because being out here in the boondocks it often doesn't do any good.

Again, I'm not worried. I could have saved at least $500+ on this order going somewhere else but was quite impressed by the testimonials here (and elsewhere) regarding B&H.
