I've used Pac-Lab numerous times with decent results, although most tell me to avoid Pac lab. Any suggestions?

I'm in the NY area and use Pac Lab. I never have any trouble with them, since I've been going there. About three years consistantly now. They are good for tri/plus-x that they do in house but their E-64T is sent to Pro8mm. So I'd say, use them B&W.

I have previously bashed pac lab but I think they have completely turned their super 8 business around.
I'm pretty sure that they have upgraded their equipment since I stopped using them a few years ago.
Just yesterday I saw 15 rolls of various stocks that I had shot for a recent job that was telecined to beta -
It looked fantastic.

i only went to Pac lab for my test rolls. I sent mind super8 out of state.
But I heard A1filmlab is better than Pac Lab. I sent my 16mm film to A1, they are good.

Hey Pac Lab only charge that much..so dont ask for too much.
2 yrs ago.. more than half my classmates went to pac lab, some A1 , some out of state.
but like 3 people's film got mess up at pac lab (totally white or darkness due to soaping too long or not enought time)
so of course those 3 people would say no to pac lab, but other would say they are cool.
yeah it depends.. and human does make mistakes.

i would vote for A1, but it takes longer to get back your super 8.

Good luck
