http://www.buy.com

I went to http://www.resellerrating.com and viewed their history, but others say they have had good/great experiences dealing with them.

Anyone dealt with them before or recently?

Thanks

Resellers has quite a few reviews from them. And some are positive.

But speaking for myself, based on the rating, I will happily buy from them if someone insures my total purchase price :G

What are you asking here? With THAT KIND of rating, I would sooner buy from some guy in the street. About all that can be said is that there are worse companies.

Yeah, they were probably buy.com employees. Why in creation would you even consider a company that has a rating of 3.43 out of 10? They don't even have very good prices!

Send me your money!

I've purchased a dozen times using buy.com since 2002. They've never done me wrong. If the price is right, I won't hesitate to use them.

I've bought a number of things from them in the past, but it's been a long time since I haven't seen a good price there in years.

I occasionally buy from them for my office (I am one of the purchasing agents) and have never had a problem. The service has been fast and the communication has been good. I just placed a giant ($25!) order for a personal item, and we will see how that goes.

They are very good...service & price (ususally). I just did a price comparison on the KM 7D & their price was better than all other reputable dealers.

http://www.buy.com is excellent. I have been buying from them for years with never ever any problems at all. Every once in a while they send me a 10% off discount that I use to buy ink or paper I don't really need yet but I will use it eventually.

10% off

Free shipping ======= A good savings on Ink

No tax

If I order on a Sat. or Sunday I get it by wed. or Thursday every time.

I've bought from them off and on for years. But, I'll admit it's been a while and their more recent ratings don't look as good.

They don't *really* stock anything AFAIK (or they were still only drop shipping the last time I ordered from 'em, since I was able to match up the addresses to distributors).

They're just like most of the internet vendors that don't have a brick and mortar location.... that is, they have products drop shipped from a distributor with packing labels. etc. made to look like it's coming from the vendor you ordered from, with their systems integrated so you get order status, tracking numbers, etc.

Techdata and Ingram Micro are the distributors you see items shipped from more often. If you research addresses carefully, you can usually match them up to one of the larger distributor' warehouse locations. Dittto for returns (they usually go back to the distributor the item was shipped from, even though the company name you send them to is your vendor name).

This practice is referred to as "fullfillment" and buy.com uses major distributors, just like most other internet vendors.
