I just did a trade up with Adorama and was very satisfied. They gave me a quote over the phone and (you guessed it) they gave me a different quote when they received the equipment. However, after some negotiation we reached a deal. I was satified with the deal and I am sure they are making some money from my equipment, but I didn't have to deal with a buch of flakes on ebay and/or Craigslist. I am very familiar with ebay and have sold quite a bit on the site and have had my share of quibbles over different things - condition, payment, non payment - you name it. It's fine when it's a smooth transaction, but when it's bad - it's BAD. I am quite happy with my new Nikon 800E - Woo Hoo!

I should have said in my post above that Ffordes have never given a price before seeing equipment - I send it at my postage cost , and if I don't like their offer they will post it back at their cost - I have never refused an offer from them though .
