On 1-15-08 I placed an Internet order with Best Price Cameras to buy 2 JVC GZ-HD7 camcorders advertised at $499. Soon after, I received an E-mail to call them. Their rep said the advertised camcorders would cost much more than advertised. He asserted that I should buy 2 JVC GZ-HD3 camcorders, which he said were equivalent. He said I could purchase each for $999, brand new with varied supplies. He would include software to interface camcorders with my laptop, which I noted used Vista. For a total of $2,050 he would add 2 deluxe tripods and gave a 100% satisfaction on the camcorders. But the camcorders received were in previously opened boxes with multiple finger prints visible. The tripods were unstable. The recorded video clips would not boot- in my Vista OR laptop or one with XP OS. JVC said that this model would not interface with Vista but with new software costing over $100 it might work. A trial software from Cyberlink failed with both laptops. I tried to return the package but Best Price refused to give me authorization unless I agreed to a re-stocking fee not applicable for defective or fraudulently advertised equipment. Best Price kept delaying the return to make their 7 day return period expire. I continued seeking authorization while listening to recordings that they would only charge after merchandise left their warehouse. And yet, Visa claims charges were processed before the invoice date by another company called INS/MRAC/JS. I was coerced into signing a form accepting less than I paid otherwise they would disallow the return. I signed the form appending my protest. I received authorization and returned the items using a valuation of $2,050 insisted upon by Best Price. Express Mail reports receipt of the items by them at 11:53AM on 1-29-08. That day they called to tell me they would hold my money for 2 weeks before returning it minus 15.4%. I have formally protested with them but they will not respond.
