  I second this voice of support for Greg at reputable.com. I've had
nothing but positive experiences with him as well, and his prices
*are* reasonable...if you keep in mind the fact that he is a RESELLER,
not a surplus organization or a college equipment dump, and he deals
with lots of large corporations.

  It's like dealing with Black Box. You'll never get the best price
from them...but when you're in a pinch, what you need will always be
on your doorstep before you wake up the next morning.
