Just purchased from seller megtooth, an Ikelite Housing for my 7D, an Ikelite DS160 strobe with 2 sync cables, and some ULCS arm segments and various adapters. I have not yet received my gear, as I have only just ordered it, but I could not be more pleased by my experience with this seller so far.

 

For starters, megtooth was prompt to respond to my initial inquiry, even though it was rather late in the evening when I first contacted him. I mentioned that I was not exactly familiar with what all I would need, but that I knew that I wanted the housing and strobe, provided he could get them to me in the next three days, in time for my trip to Cozumel. Megtooth had a handful of other items listed, for which, as I expressed to him,  I was unsure of their uses and as to whether or not I needed them. I also mentioned that I thought I might need an arm to mount the flash to, in case any of the adapters that he had might be useful. This was all in my initial inquiry.

 

From there, megtooth could not have been more patient or more helpful, showing great kindness and attention that extended far, far beyond good business or customer service. megtooth agreed to ship the next day, so that I could receive my items on time. He was expert in his advice to me and in answering my questions. Not only that, but he also offered to sell me some arm segments and clamps that were not even part of his listing. His patience with me was unwavering as I changed my mind once about buying the arms, and then changed it back again when I realized what a good deal that he was offering me. In the end, I bought most of what he had listed as well as the arms. On top of everything, megtooth threw in a handful of additional items that he felt might be useful to me, and, after quoting me a final price, he upgraded the shipping out of his pocket to ensure that it would arrive on time.

 

Megtooth is a fantastic person to deal with. If you have a question of him, ask it, and chances are you will be rewarded with a wealth of helpful information. Truly a top notch seller and a rewarding experience dealing with him.

 

Thanks Megtooth

I had an excellent experience with tiffinarizona1 and can heartily recommend him for future transactions.  We had a "whirlwind"  set of email exchanges (as he is going to Coz shortly) culminating in the sale of the gear and quick shipping so he can get used to the housing assembly process.  He is very prompt and the payment was in my Paypal account within an hour of our final pricing agreement.  Many thanks for the kind words, Jeremy!  Great person to work with and I can't wait to see some of his shots!

I've just bought some strobes off Pooley- an absolute pleasure to deal with!  He's been incredibly helpful, even going out of his way to give me extra advice, and sent some little extras to assist me.  As I said to him, he is the embodiment of why I love this community- so friendly and helpful!  Thanks pooley!

Just bought a INON UWL 100 AD wetlens from hai07. Couldn't be more happy with the deal. I didn't need all stuff of his offer and even though he gave me a VERY fair price. Communication was top and he allready shipped the item BEFORE the money could have been on his bank account. Very trustful! Thanks a lot hai07!

I recently purchased a Tokina 11-17mm lens from Alexx. Transaction was fair and went smoothly. Shipping was prompt from Croatia to the US, and the lens arrived in great condition as described. Thanks Alexx.

Purchased a strobe and arm from 'bmorescuba'. It couldn't have went any better. He was patient in answering questions and providing photos. Shipped quickly, packaged very well, great to deal with and the product was exactly as expected. I would certainly do business with him again.

Hey folks

 

I've just been contacted by a Philip Kirby (philipkirby39@gmail.com) about buying gear I have on sale. 

 

Mr Kirby said he worked offshore and because of internet problems could not easily access bank accounts etc. Cut a long story short, I have received a couple of quite convincing "PayPal" emails relating to this transaction which, thankfully, I checked and which Paypal tell me are not genuine.

 

I will leave it to your good-selves to draw conclusions.

I bought a Nauticam NA-EM1 housing with vacum moisture protection installed from member, ScubaNomad, in the classifieds.  His description of the housing was accurate and included all accessories from Nauticam.  Other than blacking out the Nauticam Logo with paint, it would have been hard to say the housing wasn't new in the box.  Dan shipped the housing the next day after receiving my payment, USPS Priority Mail, arriving in 2 days.   He was easy to speak with and answered all my questions regarding the housing by email and phone.  I found him to be an honest, accomodating Seller who immediately took care to ship out my housing and offer his experience and suggestions on using it.  Fantastic Seller!! Highly Recommended!!

I would like to give a positive feedback on seller Matt Sullivan.

 

I bought a DS125 double strobe set of him. They came exactly as advertised, even with some extras thrown in. He shipped them to relatives within the US who then shipped them on to me (thats why this post is so long after the sale.

 

He was patient and answered a lot of questions before I decided to buy them. He also mentioned some negative bits about the strobe, just to see if that was fine (was just the reflector rattling).

I purchased a Nauticam 45 degree viewfinder from eyu that he had listed in classifieds.  The item arrived promptly, well packaged, and as described.  eyu was very helpful in providing information allowing me to set it up correctly on my camera housing.  I would not hesitate to buy something from him in the future.  Highly recommended.
