B&H is very reliable, plus they include some sort of warranty on their imported items. If the difference is significant, I am happy to do it, for many items, the difference is very small any more and the convenience of not having to go through B&H or a third party for warranty service is enough to justify the extra money. You can check with them on the warranty, I feel that they are extremely reliable and if they are warrantying it enough for your satisfaction, trust them and go for it.
