Do you guys think that Sparkfun is over priced? And what about seeedstudio? Also, what about their respective board making services?

I can understand why Sparkfun is overpriced, I mean you have to make a living, right?

But I've never ordered from them specifically for that reason.

Well SparkFun must be doing something well as they seem to have been having tremendous growth over the last couple of years. I especially like the user feedback comments associated with most product listings.

Call me a fan, I like their little red boxes  ;)
