They seem to have a decent price on most components, even compared to bulk ones from china but they are a bit closer to me personally, so it'd take less time to get here. They also have 16mhz crystals much cheaper then sparkfun. I'm mainly wanting to know if they can be trusted. I've never heard of them before. I'm just wanting to check that it's safe.

Well, the cheapest atmega328's I've seen is semi-bulk of 10 or more from mouser. http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=ATMEGA328P-PUvirtualkey55650000virtualkey556-ATMEGA328P-PU

But yeah, all the other components looked pretty good as far as price (looking at resistors, capacitors, male headers, and diodes atm). Anyone able to say the time it took? I live in central US, any idea? (I would guess around a week, but it'd be nice if anyone could state the time it took. I know they are on vacation or whatever right now, just curious.)

Orders to eastern MA using priority mail have just been a couple of days. The less expensive standard delivery has been 3-4 days. But I'm only 1 state over as well if they are shipping from Niagara.

As CrossRoads stated, there's a discount going and the store will be back shipping on 3/15
But typically I get my packages within 6 days, always well packed. My location is under my avatar so a couple of states to your north smiley
I have a hunch they ship on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Yes, it's the price that sucked me in. I now own 1,000 0.1uF caps and 1,000 22pF caps  smiley-sweat. Sooooo cheap if you buy the big bags. I wish them good business. Sparkfun? Good luck!  smiley-mr-green
