I found a camera on J&R's website that is a couple hundred dollars cheaper than the same camera at BH Photo Video. I've bought from BH before, and have had a good experience. Has anyone purchased anything from J&R? Are they a reputable company? Or are they one of the numerous NY scammers? Thanks!

Did you check on J&R's reputation here?

It looks like they have a decent reputation based on the resellerratings.com website. BH has a much higher rating...but they are also a title sponsor of the site! Any purchased anything from J&R?

I can get gift cards for J&R with my credit card points so I'm curious too!

Just make sure that whichever site you order from, you are keeping an eye on the warranty information. There are some part numbers which may be quite cheaper, but are imported and do not carry a warranty.

kearock, what credit card are you using?? It would be nice to have some points towards things like camera/camcorder equipment.

J&R has been around for a long time. If I remember right they started out as a Liquidatory of older technologies...They have always been a decent company.

Before RadioShack sold only toys... We'd grab our Electronic components from RS or J&R. (Then Fry's Came along)

You may not get the CC to extend the warrantee (some CCs will double the warrantee up to one year) if you buy a gift card.

J&R is a legitimate company. I've bought electronics there many times without problems. If they have the best price on something, go for it.

I have heard OK things about J&R. Their customer service is not at the same level as B+H but you get what you pay for. They did have a problem with rebates for a while getting actually sent out. Don't know if that has been improved.

I used to order audio stuff from J&R back in the radio dayz. I never had trouble with them.

I have purchased from J & R with no problems. They don't have as much photo stuff as B & H though.
