Just thought it might be useful if people listed their Top 3 online photographic retailers (or e-tailers) are based on experiences over, say, the past couple of years or so. I don't think there's much point going further back than that as quality of service can change, as we all know!
Listed below, in alphabetical order, are some of the best-known retailers, but no doubt there are many others.

Not in any specific order:
Amazon / T4 / Digigood
Good experiences with materiel.net (French), cameratools (Netherlands-based; exceptional service), Amazon.
Ffordes, MPB and Wex.
I've used both of the first two for used equipment and they've been superb
I've a Top 5
And Flash Camera Otherwise known as Kerso or Ian Kerr, great for cheap grey import lenses.
Top of my list would have to be
The only issue is I do not use them "online" as I live nearby and just pop in anytime when they are open
My top three are Amazon, Park and Wex. Had excellent service from all three.
eBay - for loads of cheaper items and smaller worldwide companies not yet trading elsewhere - excellent delivery.
Amazon - for good reliable prices and a good degree of trust from Amazon, or good free delivery from their market place sellers.
Wex - for good prices and delivery on the more specialised equipment and consumables
Premier Ink and Photographic
Yes - MPB. I agree. That makes my Top Four
...'gotta be Amazon ...1st. class service.
I used to get everything from WEX 'till I paid over the odds plus extra for Saturday delivery for a lens I needed for a christening on the Sunday...stayed in all day on the Saturday and it came on the Monday.
...never even got an apology.
Since then I've bought 2 cameras and no end of lenses elsewhere but never been back to WEX.
It's a mutual thing, they don't give a damn about me and I feel the same way about them.
In no order
7 Day Shop (good for batteries and cards)
Amazon (but only amazon, no 3rd parties unless it's fulfilled by amazon )
I've had zero issues from any of these stores.
The second was a big surprise. Significant saving, yes a grey import, but next day delivery.
oh yeah Digital Rev, for got about them considering I just bought the 85mm f/1.8 from them!
