Default Choose Ray's!

If you are looking for a G5, go to Rays Pagers. They have the P2 upgraded G5's for $15 less ($660) than Scanner Master's old P1 G5's ($675). I wish I knew that before I trusted Scanner Master and bought mine from them. Don't make that mistake! BTW...They don't take returns either!

And when I brought this to Scanner Master, they didn't seem to care. Last purchase from Scanner Master for me!

Scanner Master is a sponsor here on the board...I hope they are listening!

Joe

While scanner master might have done you wrong some of the blame does lay on the customer.
Plenty of people have come on here first asking where to buy and other questions before plopping down 600 bucks. I try to do as much research on a product and the seller with most purchases over 100 bucks.
Return policy is always at the top of my questions list.
I almost feel as if this is more customer error and less of a scanner master error.

What is Ray's Return Policy on scanners? I don't see anything on their website.

Zipscanners does show a Return Policy. It has numerous conditions and a restocking charge. Always read a sellers terms, conditions, and policies. Assume nothing.

I'm not saying that I bare no responsibility. I am mainly getting it out there that SM is so much higher thatn Ray's. On this product, they are about 15% higher. And as far as the return policy; yes I should have considered it before purchase. I am just saying beware of SM. That is all....

So no real reason to beware of scannermaster.

Ray’s is the best. 4 of us have purchased from him recently. Had problem with one on delivery, he very quickly resolved the issue. (Could have been the user error) either way he was quick to resolved.
As a business owner myself I had some phone conversation with him before the original purchase and I must I enjoyed the conversation and I feel the trust when I spoke with him.

Agreed. Ray is most helpful. Responds quickly to messages. It’s where I send people to.

To be fair, everyone selling Unication products has a similar return policy. Ray's website has "No Return" disclaimer for their G4 & G5, just like Scanner Master does.

I bought my first G4 at Scanner Master as I've trusted them for years. Then I heard all the talk about Ray's so I decided to give it a try when ordering accessories but was disappointed that they don't ship to Alberta Canada. I know there are dealership restrictions but if Scanner Master can why not Ray's.

I do love my G4 and am looking forward to a SDS 100 ordered at Scanner Master.

I've always noticed Scanner Master tends to be more expensive than other sellers over the years.

And that sir is why we all love the Internet...one can price shop in minutes and weed out the high price dealers (unless they offer something compelling enough to justify their higher price.)
