If you're dealing with B&H, I don't think you need to worry about defective gear; I've dealt with them before and their products are as good as any.

One concern that you should take into consideration is that, if you need to return/replace an item, you'll have to pay for shipping back. Plus, in case of returns, B&H won't pay back the shipping cost they charged you (about $13 dollars to Canada). With the cheapest (traceable) shipping cost from Canada to the US being $18+ (Canada post), you'll be out about $31 if you return an item.
