For VARs, it can be a very personal.
Through the years, I've purchase equipment from just about everyone.-it's not a good thing. BH does have the best pricing, but unless your happy with what you receive (as you've experienced) it can be hard to live with.

For you, it would probably be best to find a VAR that you can go to and actually hold, touch, shake, etc the equipment before you buy it. Since you don't know a lot about equipment it's going to be important that the VAR understands you're needs and that you understand what you're getting. A good VAR, even if they don't stock an item you might be interest in, sometimes can get a sales rep to stop by with a demo that you can look at. As Walter mentioned, once you find a VAR that you like, it can be a great relationship for you both. They get all of your business, and you get someone who can answer your questions and will have your back if you need a return.
Hint, usually good VARs are NOT going to have the best pricing on every piece of equipment-it's a trade off for having quality staff.

Good Luck,
