    cheap www.ebuyer.com bad points crap returns non-existent customer service, however they are very cheap.
    www.scan.co.uk reasonable prices fast delivery the stuff on the today only page is very cheap.
    www.dabs.com good service not the cheapest on price but reliable and good customer service.

    Varies prices go up and down all the time.

    Check www.price-guide.co.uk, www.redstore.com, www.ebuyer.com (note only buy things in stock), I personally wouldn't bother with scan's "offers" as they usally are not cheaper than elsewhere, www.aria.co.uk is someone I have used in the past, www.microdirect.co.uk is another (I can get discount from them ;-) And more recently (thanks to price-guide, I purchased from www.komplett.co.uk (cpu and fan).

    I use www.dos.co.uk for bits and pieces, haven't really compared their prices to other sites but I think they are decent...

    www.komplett.co.uk is VERY expensive. delivery is ok but i guess ur paying for that in how much they sell for. service spot on. <G> see goods on that page 20 - 40 quid cheaper else where

    www.dos.co.uk sells cheap parts, alright service etc not someone i would purchase off as they dont stock things i would buy

    www.scan.co.uk heavy on the delivery costs and if something goes wrong u have no chance in hell of getting the part back within the same week (more like a month or two). Better to go to there store and buy it and if there is something wrong shout and make a LARGE fuss and u will get 1st class service

    www.dabs.com a very good retail supplier, a bit expensive but has lightning fast deliver, service is spot on and returns are alright too.

    www.ebuyer.com might have problems during peak season at getting ur product out. no chance in hell of sending the product back if there is fault

    www.aria.co.uk guys here are total nobs, same problem again RETURNS is a nightmare. Totally un professional. you get much better service of these guys by visiting them! BTW they dont sell stock from manufactures all there stock comes from other companies such as micro P, dabs etc.

    www.microdirect.co.uk - good prices, good service. returns people need educating at times but overall they are thumbs up. again its much better visiting these guys!
