Got A Reputable Dealer?

I'm looking to purchase a Sony PDX10 camcorder (or a PD 150 if I can find a good deal)

I've heard the horror stories. Particularly Robert Knecht Schmidt's "Don't Get Burned" post.

How about some good experiences anyone has had?

I've ordered from B&H, and they don't always have the lowest prices, but they are 100% reliable. Perhaps there are some places that have lower prices but are still reliable.

Well I'm sure I'll only be the first in a series of the same, but try out

I heard a lot about them on this board, and finally placed my first order with them. Their staff is very helpful and personable.

I buy often from B&H as well. But it seems that Zotz is cheaper on many things.

If you're in Seattle then you can also try calling Camera World in Oregon. I wanted to check out Zotz but didn't have time to drive that far south during a recent visit to OR.

Be sure to ask about special pricing as their regular advertised price is near standard retail.

B & H Photo is a reputable Sony dealer on the East Coast and Zotz Is a reputable West Coast dealer, so with two good choices, I'm closing this thread to prevent the inevitable listing of hundreds of dealers the we all got great deals from. Please try our community sponsors as a way of supporting their efforts in this community.
