I have made several purchases from Terry King's shop YourDuino.com.  Always great prices and fast shipping, but most importantly is the wonderful wiki that he has put together to support all of his products.  I recommend that you take a look around there.

Tayda looks pretty comparable to quite few others. GoodLuckBuy is also pretty good, ut if you plow long enough through the listings in e-bay you once and a while hit a real bargain on an article offered by many vendors.

What drive me nuts is the "Free Shipping" bullshit. They just add it into the price... but at least you know right off what the total cost will be right away, without having to wait till you go to checkout.

Just beware that all of these overseas shops take a good 10-14 days to get to you.  But they are cheaper.  Futurlec has been good to me but it's 2 weeks each time I order from them.

I'm quite experienced in overseas shopping. So no problem for me... with 1,5€ you buy 10 stripes that here costs 50 cent for every pieces, that's a LOL!

I'm in Belgium and the big wholesalers like RS and Farnell only sell to companies over here. So I buy most of my stuff from Chinese Ebay sellers and Tayda electronics in Thailand. Cheap but you need to have some patience.

I just shopped GPS modules against Ebay and I can buy 2 GPS modules for what one costs on Futurlec, I bought mine on Ebay two month's ago for $27.00 Free shipping and got it in two weeks. Southern California goes through 1 - 2 weeks of wait at the Port of Los Angeles Customs... Give ME EBAY>>> requires a lot of patience and sometimes you DO get the smelly end of the stick... Butt OH... the Savings. I buy a lot from Ebay and I have about a 98% batting average. The only store to avoid is Sure Electronics... They have some.. neat goodies but they don't back up what they sell, once they told me to just "Ship it back to them" yeah Right. I tossed it.
