I've had good fast communication from them. Jason always replies fast and is quite helpful. I ordered a Jetbeam and Olight light from them and the price was great and the shipping was fast. So far so good, will definitely use them again!

Had three relatively expensive flashlights, Fenix TK41 and TK35, and a Zebralight with reasonable prices from them so far and never had a problem. First place to look at for quality equipment. You may even get better prices on their Ebay sales by using 'best offer' option.

Decent prices by most, not The cheapest, but not That expensive either. Either way, a reliable seller, with reliable prices.

I've just asked for their best price and received great prices every time. Sometimes much lower than elsewhere Wink

Fast communication. Good customer service, quick shipping. Decent prices and a somewhat fiddly web-site.

From HKEquipment I have purchased many lights including TK-35, swm V10R, iTP A1 SS, iTP A3 blue, iTP A3 SS, iTP A3 titanium e.t.c. Some from their website and some from their ebay store. They always ship fast, they are "customs friendly" and at times I received a great "best offer". The products I got were all original, with their unopened retail box and everything.

My only "complaint" with them is that, sometimes, their "best offer" is just $1 below their full price and I can find a better "best offer" elsewhere. Other than that, they are 10/10 in my books.

Actually it has one of the cheapest prices around....esp for Fenix.  Even Andy of Ebay (Olightworld)/taobao cannot beat that.  But some stuff like Olights i think he cannot give a good price.

The searching is fairly limited. In particular unlike most other sites I visited it doesn't seem to have any filter or sort function. They don't have as many products but looking thru 18 pages or something to see if there are any XM-L emitters (there aren't) isn't fun whereas with other site I can just sort by price or filter by price.

ordered my sc600 off them..said they would send an email when it shipped..I contacted them after 7 days or so and asked if it shipped..they replied that it had and gave me the tracking number..so not a big deal but they didn't email with the tracking as said but were quick enough with a reply email..hopefully the sc600 gets here in good shape..

Bought my (faulty) Xtar Wp2 ii charger from them @$18.99. This a.m. received prompt email reply asking if I will return it for an exchange. Just emailed back asking for their address, which I can't find anywhere. I may send the charger back but doubt it's worth the shipping/hassle/wait.

UPDATE:

During the past week I've exchanged several emails with Stanley. His/their replies were courteous and within 24 hours; this in itself is encouraging. I explained that return shipping is too expensive for me to be worthwhile, and quoted prices as HKe requested. Today I got an email that they will send a replacement WP2 ii without me returning the faulty one. Still early days, but promising so far.

Thanks for all the opinions. Does the first post summary look OK?

Does anybody know what the BLF discount code is so I can list it in the first post?

Thanks!

I emailed them with a product question (on the 5th) and it took them 4 days(today) to respond to me with an answer. I just hope the answer was correct and an item will be restocked.

More details can be foun here: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/7439 .

Long story short, I bought a D11.2 that did not really like 14500's. I live in Brazil and it is too expensive to ship the defective light back. They arranged a replacement without the need to ship the defective item back.

Very happy and definitely recommend...

there is no generic BLF coupon code afaik. just some items are discountable (we always need to check with the drop down menu) and it depends on the item itself, seems like.

you can add "RECOMMENDED" to the dealer's rating.

their customer service makes this dealer outstanding. and the "Stanley"-thing gives one the feeling that it's a small company with a one-man-show customer service. Someone personal who takes care of you.

haha

Mr. Admin:

Reading through the whole thread, seems like pretty much overwhelming positive. I agree with kreisler we should add

[RECOMMENDED] to the thread title.
