I use this site to get unbiased reviews on, online sites:


The problem with all these review sites is that the reviewers can manipulated. That seems to be what 42nd street photo does, when it receives a bad review. It contacts the reviewer and offers to solve the problem, if the review is changed. So lesson learned: have a bad experience with 42nd St, review them badly, and you'll get what you want, or what was promised to you, to begin with. Don't and you can whistle in the wind. The reseller ratings site does not note a change in a rating, whereas other sites do (see my second post). However there is at least one review on the resellers site that tells the same story. He was badly treated, wrote a bad review, was contacted by 42nd St, got what he was promised to begin with, changed the rating. But at the end of his review, he said he would not buy from them again, even though the item he was looking for was $300 less at 42nd St. Interesting...

That may occur but it's better than just purchasing blindly. Who else could we rely on (but humans) for store / product reviews?
