I haven't used them but the comments I've seen in forums seem to be reasonably favorable.

Abe's seems quite variable, and they are terrible when they face returns. They would not be a #1 choice for me.

I dealt with them in 2005 and had a very bad experience they held my camera hostage and told me I had to buy other stuff from them that I had to have to use with the camera especially a $200 service plan.... if I didn't (and I didn't and told them so) the camera went out of stock. Also they billed my credit card for the camera that was never shipped (as I told them to cancel the order after the 2nd dealing with them) and I had to deal with my credit provider to get it shorted out.

I now use bhphotovideo; newegg and Adorama

I've dealt with them and had no problems. However, my main squeeze is B&H. IMNSHO, they are tops. And, as was mentioned: Adorama, Newegg, Buydig, J&R... all good.
