    I tried to call them 2 hours ago because my 70-200 didn't come with a warranty card. Their customer service dept closes at 1pm on Friday :wtf:

    they have a huge selection of decent prices with bad customer service.

    if you're just ordering online obviously its fine, but the moment you email or call :down:

    and unfortunately its not a rarity, most pros know this

    Yeah, I was asking for your personal story of bad service. I enjoy hearing people get angry and rant about things. :mamoru:

    In other news, my Shures should be here from BH today. The irony of getting them on a saturday isn't lost on me.

    B&H is the BIGGEST pain in the ass to deal with, and their service is going downhill. It's just the effect of them getting absolutely huge. I mean they've always been big, but the last time I was there it was just unimaginibly busy.

    They've diversified into all types of consumer goods (home theater, computers, etc :ugh:) and now they are just FLOODED with people buying shit like a P&S camera, a set of speakers and a cake box of DVD-R's. They're getting at least 15:1 consumer to pro orders now, so for pros B&H blows to deal with now.

    They really need to separate into Pro and Consumer businesses.

    found a pricing error on some paper (8x10 price for 13x19), called in the order, guy said it was the normal price for the 13x19, I said in the mag its lower, he hung up.

    They wouldn't send a 135L to my address when I first moved to santa barbara for school unless I changed the billing address on my credit card. they wouldn't allow any orders of 500 to be shipped to a different address :greddy: (online order btw)
