Enet sales,Nikon D300 Bait & Switch

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Col. Joe Levinson, Feb 4, 2008.

  1. I have attempted to purchase a Niikon D300 from 4 different Enet
    Advertisers. Each time they take my order, they respond with multiple
    combinations that far exceed their original Advertised Quote. On one
    occassion w/ Bestpricecameras.com, I was told the order would be
    shipped and then they called and asked if I would like to add
    batteries for the D300 and DB-10. I said no.
    Suddenly the order was cancelled and back ordered. This happened
    three times with them and 3 other on line sellers. I have turned one
    in to the FTC. Any other suggestions?

    don't waste your time with sleazy companies. they'll only sell it to
    you if you buy the overpriced accessories that are actually included
    with the camera. otherwise it's 'suddenly out of stock.'

    purchase it from a reputable dealer, such as b&h:

  3. What is Enet?
    I am surprised that you have missed the frequent warnings in the photo NGs
    about those slime bags. You may want to check out the reports on
    http://www.resellerratings.com, e.g.
    http://www.resellerratings.com/store/Best_Price_Cameras_6 for
    BestPriceCameras which surprise, surprise also use several other names.

    Yes, who? Some of those price search engines have been set up by the
    Brooklyn camera dealers. They then only highlight themselves and give
    themselves glowing, but phony, reviews. You find their search engines from
    the google ads that they buy when you search for a specific camera.

    As the others have replied, ResellerRatings.com is your friend.

    I highly recommend this company. Ritz Camera is also responsible and
    reliable. If you're in the DC area, Penn Camera is good (and may do
    mail order).

    Sometimes local camera stores will have what you want in stock and if
    the price isn't more than $40 over mail order, being able to handle the
    camera is an advantage.

    Yes. B&H Photo in NYC is dependable, as is Adorama. These two dealers
    almost always have the best prices, or very nearly so, and they can be
    counted on to actually deliver the goods without the bait-and-switch. You
    can order through their web sites. They accept returns. In short, they
    are "real" businesses.

    Yes. Learn from the many people before you who complained.
    When you buy from sleazy advertisers offering impossibly low prices
    who make impossible promises you get what you get.

  8. Ritz Camera is always good for bodies since they don't gouge! There stock
    is short since their wait lists are long. There are people still waiting
    for their D3 from them. As for Penn, they are alright, but I won't give
    them my business due to the shady way they run their wait lists. Service
    Photo and ePhotoCraft are excellent dealers. ePhotoCraft has the D300 in


    True, but tax will kill you.
