Do you guys think that Sparkfun is over priced? And what about seeedstudio? Also, what about their respective board making services?
When you buy something from Sparkfun do not even think about returning it.If the product is defective they will attempt to fight you tooth and nail.Their customer product support rating is -10 on a scale of 0 to 10. (10 being the highest)Their excuse for their poor customer support is they are growing so fast and cannot keep up.Let it be known, if you buy some overpriced item from them don't even expect to return it withouta fight and a call to your bank about a stop payment on your Visa or Mastercard.
I can understand why Sparkfun is overpriced, I mean you have to make a living, right?
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

That may be your experience, but not mine. I've received a shipment from them without a vital, very expensive item ($50), replaced by a very cheep item($0.1), but a simple email, with photographs of received items, was fixed very swiftly, quick and kindly from sparkfun, no extra questions asked, no fuzz, even if I live half a world apart. I'll give a +10 for customer support from them. Prices compared to my neighborly countries, sparkfun is quite reasonable, and their website is quite active and exciting.
