I'm an Advanced Open Water Diver. I would not really recommend buying online even if you've tried the gear on in a shop before the purchase. I'd dig up the extra scratch and buy from reputable companies, in person. I usually get my gear from local shops after I've shopped around for the best deal.
Like Older Guy said, US Divers and Scuba Pro are good; I have also had luck with Deep See, Mares, Tusa. When you get more advanced, you can move on to high end gear.
Older Guy was right on saying to find the toughest sonofabitch.. I was certified by a ex-Navy Frogman.... hated his sh*t at the time, but learned so much more than with other dive masters I've seen or have gone diving with.
diving advice, remain CALM... if something were to go wrong, you'll probably get out of it better and if everything goes great, you won't burn through your air and can be under longer (provided your dive buddy isn't a twit).
