There's quite a lot of major retail and web companies with lots a great rep selling on Amazon. Abe's of Maine, Butterfly Photo, Adorama, J&R, B&H (sometimes), Electronics Expo and Vann's to name a few, occasionally at a better price than the store or their own website.
I always look at the stars rating and the recent complaints. Recently I've bought Li ion batteries, a cover for my tablet, etc on Amazon without major retailers or Amazon (other than as the fulfillment).
