"Joe at Abe's of Maine is the utmost professional, knowledgeable salesman I have had the pleasure working with on TV purchases. Shipping was fast and packaging was perfect, communication was excellent. I look forward to doing more business with Joe in the future. I highly recommend Joe and his company -- can't beat the price better yet, the communication and professionalism."
"Scammers. Classic Bait and Switch. High Pressure Sales. I ordered a 60" plasma TV from Abe's for $1600. The next day I got a call from Morris, who told me that I had ordered the commercial model and that what I really wanted was the retail model which he would sell me for $2100. I told him "No Thanks, just give me the one that I ordered." He refused and told me that I didn't want that one and told me there would be additional insurance charges. He told me many many things to pressure me into spending hundreds of dollars more for the item that I thought I had already purchased. He was very rude. His supervisor was nicer, and tried to give me throwaway extras like a surge protector and an hdmi cable. These guys must sell used cars, too. I cancelled my order. This place is a total scam. "
"I purchased a Canon PowerShot SX700 online, listed at $ 299.00. I received multiple voice mails and an email from Morris Katz (ext 222). He told me that this model was an international model and would not have a warranty in the U.S.A.He tried to sell me the U.S.A model for $ 349.00. He finally agreed to match the Amazon price of $ 329.00.I received the package yesterday and found that this was a model to be sold in Japan only.I saw some reviews on this website and called Joe at ext 266. He promised to credit $ 30 to my credit card.I am rating Joe's customer service at 5 star."
"Recently purchased a 75 inch Samsung from Abes of Maine. Received it in less than a week in perfect shape. I've been using it for over a month and loving it. Customer service was great and they really try to make you happy. I'd love to do business with them again. "
" FALSE ADVERTISING! Very bad customer service! Ordered 55' HU8550 Series TV from their website for$1644.00 with free shipping, Two hours after order placed got a call from them said it's a commercial model doesn't come with full warranty,no 3d glasses etc and tried to upsell to retail model for additional $350 .Had hard time to cancel the order."
"I recently purchased a Samsung 8500 (51") from Abe's of Maine. I was able to save around $400 on the set through this company. I was a bit worried after reading a lot of negative reviews on-line, however, Joe Piccato (ext. 266) worked with me throught the process and was really great. My TV arrived when they said it would and it was in great shape. I really could not be any happier. I would definately buy from Abe's of Maine again thanks to Joe."
"Delays orders in order to call you and try to up sell you. Very unprofessional about it too. I was upset that they delayed my order and their response was "no, it's not delayed, they all take 48 hours". Yes, they do, because you delay them in order to try to up sell customers over the phone. 48 hours to ship an order is absolutely ridiculous for an industry as competitive as the electronics industry. No Thanks! **UPDATE** Abes's of Maine has been calling me constantly and harassing me about this review. They have also contacted ResellerRatings and has lied to them telling them this review should not be allowed because I did not actually do business with them. This is a complete lie. It's Order #B1803078 places on July 20th at 7pm. They called me the next day around 3pm in order to up sell me. The item # was NK1635G, a Nikon Lens. These people are not just bad business folks, they are vindictive!"
"This company uses deceptive business practices, including bait and switch and high-pressure sales. They post low prices on their website to get you to buy, and then call up to get you to "upgrade" to the full version of what you ordered.2 days after I placed my order for a TV, I received a call informing me that I had ordered the "commercial" model that doesn't include the standard warranty or accessories. But for $300 I could upgrade to the "retail" model that did. There is no indication on their website that the TV I ordered is a non-standard "commercial" model, commercial models generally have better warranties than consumer models, and the "retail" model that the rep showed me references the same exact part number and cannot be found on their website unless you search for it's specific SKU. I now see other consumers have had the same problem recently, with Abe's calling them saying they purchased an "import" model and had to upgrade to get the full warranty. I don't know when they started employing this scam, but this is no longer a trusted retailer.I would never order from Abe's of Maine again."
"I was looking for a nikkon d5300 camera for months. I did extensive research and landed on abes of maine. I got a wonderful sales rep name Joe at extension 266. He was very helpful and knew everything about the camera and was very respectful. I received my camera on time and with exactly what he promised. To bad their is not a 6 star button on this site. I would definitely rate them 6 stars abes maine and Joe rock. Best customer service I ever had."
"I ordered the new 65h8000 from them and everything was smooth and easy as far as price and e-mail confirmation. I did not anticipate an up sell call on accessories and warranty but even after all that the price was amazing. after that They brought the TV into the house, opened the box, and confirmed that the TV was working. The delivery men were polite and easy to coordinate with. Thank you Joe for the best price out there. "
"After getting screwed by Greystone Appliance (thank god for credit cards reversing charges), I turned to Abes.Called and spoke with Frank who was quite nice and friendly. Asked if they had a new Samsung PN60F8500 in stock. This TV goes for $2,400 + tax/S&H everywhere else. Abes advertised two versions - one for $1,600 and the other for $2,000. He quoted me $2,000 for the retail version (as opposed to the $1,600 commercial which has limitations like no speakers etc). He said they had it in stock at the store and that it was ready for pickup in NJ if I came in that afternoon. When I told him I would be coming from Brooklyn, he offered to ship it to me for free, thus also saving me on NJ sales tax ($150+). This made me wary, especially given my previous experience with Greystone but Frank said he would guarantee delivery in the next couple days (before I headed out on a vacation a week later). He tried to sell me a 3-year warranty at half price ($150) and also a few cables, both of which I declined despite being pressed somewhat to buy it. I didnt give in though he did manage to tack on another $87 for insurance costs of delivery. Was fine with it as I knew Id have trouble getting a better deal (and thought it best to give in on something lest I never get my TV). Gave him my credit card and he charged $2,087 total immediately.Was a bit nervous but a day or two later, got a call from the shipping guys who wanted to coordinate delivery which came another 2 days later. They were very accommodating and even showed up 30 minutes early. Waited around to unbox and plug in the TV to make sure it worked (it did).Overall, a VERY positive experience with Abes. Sure, they will try to upsell you a few things that you may/may not want but they came through and I know I got about as good a deal as possible. Recommend."
""FALSE FALSE ADVERTISING " Buyers be aware. Same story as others. Purchased 55” Samsung TV Online, for pretty good deal. A day later got a call from Joe indicating that it’s a commercial model and only comes with 30 day warranty, does not include retail accessories or software and tried to upsell to US retail model for additional $270. The part number according to AbesOfMaine site is Part #: UN55F8000BFXZA. According to Samsung, this model comes loaded with all of the accessories. I argeued this with Frank, who refused to budge. He was happy to cancel my order. Update: So we finally came to resolution. Instead of paying $1329 for my TV, I'm now paying $1399 with some upgrades. "
"Just Received my Samsung 55" LED that i purchased from Abe's of Maine, I had the pleasure of dealing with Joe ext 266, this is not my first purchase from Abe's Of Maine and as always I am a customer for life.. Thank You all at Abe's for making my Electronic Purchases such a pleasure."
"They are the best out of the rest of the cheap pricing out there. Ordered un65hu8550 for about $1,500 less then the larger retailers out there. I got my tv in 2 days (shocker!!!!) with a 3 year warranty. The salesman was very helpful guiding me through my purchase "
"Called me to discuss my purchase and tried to sell additional items. However, was willing to ship as purchased. "
