They're selling a Canon item I need at a steep discount *and* they appear to have overall "good" (albeit not flawless) feedback on resellerratings.com. Can anyone report positive experiences with them, or negative?

I would be concerned about buying from any website with a single review that starts off "I am writing this review in order to get a free filter for my new lens i have purchased... "

Sounds like they screwed quite a few people with a bait and switch and are trying to pad their review stats. Why not buy from the Buy/sell forums here? The prices are generally the best around and equipment is in tip top shape. If you can't find it priced similarly on the buy/sell forum here I would definitely be concerned about buying something that is 'new' for less from a less than reputable website.

Beware of res3eller ratings reviews. Now that many people have smart phones, the telecom services have hundreds of IP's, so the sellers can have their employees each give a good review (as a different user) each day via their smart phone. Reseller ratings can't tell that it came from the same people because they have a different IP.

The result is that a huge but phoney record of good reviews can be built up.

Yeah. Thanks. In the end I decided a 1.4X III for under $300 is TGTBT. And the reviews are not to be be trusted. There are enough horror stories in there not to want to risk the hassle. So I skipped it.

Wise decision amigo. Good luck hunting one down elsewhere!

I had an experience with Primotronix. I ordered a $900 lens from them in July and they claimed to ship it a few days later, but 7 weeks later I'd never received it. They offered a full refund and 2 weeks later I hadn't received that either. I filed a complaint with the BBB and they offered the refund again, promising it within 10 business days, but again I didn't receive it. I filed a second complaint and called them and they promised it again, and I didn't receive it again. I am out $900 and they are flat out scammers. You made the right call avoiding them.

Did you pay by credit card? Card companies will work with their customers in cases such as these.
