I needed a ND filter for a project tomorrow. Placed the order about noon on Monday and paid the small extra charge for UPS which is always two days. Arrived today around 2:30.

I see a lot of 'gripe' threads about the major stores so thought I'd post a positive note. When I absolutely have to have something B&H is my first pick.

^ Thanks for the review. At least now I have a reason to shop at B&H again. I wish shipping was free with Prime from education. Its not in my case.

The complainers usually just like to complain... and look for any reason to do so.

B&H and Adorama (and most other major outfits) will bend over backwards to satisfy a customer's needs. I have never been let down with either of them.

I think most of the time people expect faster delivery than what's written on the order and when that doesn't happen they start a $%#@ thread on POTN.


I know more about gear than I know about photography :p

:lol: I like the ones that choose the free shipping and then piss and moan about the amount of time it takes to receive it.

Some items I've ordered from Amazon, there's this option for local delivery. I order by 8AM and it's here between 2-3PM, same day!

Not all items have that option though.

Just ordered a Rebel T1i kit from B&H for my Boss.

Placed the order Wednesday at 3:00pm.

Had the order Thursday at 9:00am !!

18 Hours Processing & Delivery Time with FREE SHIPPING by UPS Ground to North West New Jersey!!

Needless to say he was impressed when I had the battery charged, the neck strap on, and the memory card in all before lunch !!

Just about all of my gear has come from B&H with No Problems.

I had nothing but great experiences with B&H , i usually receive my orders in less than 1 week (From NY to Montreal) , the only time i faced a web problem , Henry Posner was more than helpful and fixed it very shortly . Long story Short ! B&H rocks :)
