    Why does the article smell so heavily of horse shit? I would look to see who
    sponsors the website. In 15 years of dealing with Adorama I've never had a
    bad experience. Seeing as I have no idea what EDN magazine actually is and
    who this geek claiming to be ther editor are, I think I'll stick with my
    assessment of Adorama. Any gaper can have a website.

    Shit happens. Adorama have a fine reputation, as do B&H. All companies
    have things slip through the cracks. EDN is mainly an advertising
    platform for electronics parts vendors to the electronics industry. eg:
    read some of the articles and it sounds more marketese than technical.
    It's okay, the mag acts as a billboard to the electronics industry.

    I see it as:
    -What the writer said happened, more or less as he says; except that
    likely he was belligerent in his calls and e-mails to the point where
    Adorama simply gave up and dropped him.

    -His allegations about "why" it happened are fabulation and certainly
    not par for Adorama.

    -This gives his magazine a chance for some "objective + watchdog like
    criticism" (...of a company that has zero reason to advertise in EDN, so
    no sweat for EDN).

    Cheers,
    Alan.

    I too have never had anything but good service from Adorama and won't change
    my opinion based on some article from somepeople I've never heard of.

    What experiences others may have with a seller can vary- I care of what
    experience I have had and my experiences with Adorama over several years has
    been excellent - I have limited my photographic purchases to Adorama, B& H, and
    Freestyle, and have avoided all the problems that others may have had with
    other vendors.
