    is a legit store?

    They have low prices on a lot of keyboards but they have what looks to be a lot of fake reviews on, so I am very suspicious.

    I remember a few years ago before flat panel TVs were as commonplace as they are now, there were a lot of fake stores setup online that appeared to be selling flat panel TVs at reduced prices. Of course, there was always some sort of scam involved.

    I see a few stores like that now selling high end office furniture brands like Herman Miller, Steelcase, etc. They look legit and they have hundreds of (fake) 5 star reviews, but they are actually just a scam op.

    Anyway, B&H appears to have an actual store in New York, which helps them look legit. The main reason I am suspicious is because of their prices that are usually lower than GC and Sam Ash, and the reviews that I've read online, many look fake.

    I'm always cautious when it's a store I've never heard of before.

    B&H is one of the biggest NYC electronics stores along with J&R and Adorama.

    Yeah, they've got a giant store on W 34th street here. Crazy amounts of stuff.

    Also, lots of Hassidim everywhere.

    Thanks for the other store recommendations! I was only looking on GC, Sam Ash, and Amazon before.
