    PC Techs, Where do you shop for the best deal?

    So, I am looking for a lot of 50 - 100 floppy disks, but I am not familiar with any legitimate auctioneers other than EBay and Amazon.

    I checked these out already but I suspect their prices are mostly mark-up;

    What wholesale / lot site might you direct me to shop for quality floppy disks ?

    Please keep in mind that I am trying to get the highest quality for the lowest price, something like Sony, without paying an arm and a leg.

    Thanks you guys.

    newegg gets like 90% of my business. I use froogle a lot as well to make sure I'm getting the best deal.

    online: www.newegg.com www.provantage.com www.sparco.com www.buy.com

    store front: Fry's (www.outpost.com) Micro Center (www.microcenter.com)

    Newegg is awesome - highly recommended. I buy pretty much all of my computer parts from them.

    Newegg is the only place I shop.

    But who the hell uses floppy disks anymore?

    I often use pricewatch.com - it's sort of a clearinghouse for a bunch of vendors.

    If you're only looking at 50 or 100 name brand floppies, just go to Staples or Office Depot. You're not going to save that much shopping on the internet. It's not worth spending the time comparing prices.

    What in the world do you want floppies for anyway? They're obsolete, and a lot of computers don't even come with floppy drives any more.

    Never even been charged a restock fee on an item I couldn't use there. Their service even works through the online chat applet they have. It's pretty slick.

    Cheap, fast, reviews, better info than most sites (although I still end up researching at the manufacturer's page, to which they happen to have a link).

    I recently had a defective monitor that I had to return. I had to pay to ship it (~$20.00), but other than that they got it and then sent me a replacement that works fine.

    I've had good luck with returns with them, and like C.O., they have waived the restock fee on an item I could not use. Shipments have always been timely, and they keep you informed via emails of what is happening with your order (as well as when they receive your returned items, and have credited your account). But I agree, if you just need floppies, I'd just go down to Staples and pick up a box.

    I check all the sites like fatwallet and various forums to see if there are any specials going on on what I'm looking for or just to browse.

    Newegg is heavenly but I'd say I use them only about half the time.
