    Hi guys.

    Can you recommend me websites where I can buy electronic components with good prices.

    The online stores should sell at least:
    - Resistors, Variable resistors, LDR (Light Dependent Resistors)
    - Capacitors, Diodes, transistors, MOSFETs.
    - LEDs
    - Alligator clips
    - Breadboards
    - 9V battery clips
    - Microcontrollers (Atmel family and PIC family)
    - Microcontroller programmers
    - Integrated circuits (4000 series, 74 series, NE555, etc)
    - Displays (LCD, 7 segment, etc)
    - Wires (for breadboard, etc)
    - Sensors

    It will help if the store ships with DHL.

    Thank you.

    You will probably get the best deal from Farnell. If I remember well, you can have next day delivery free of charge. Please check their website to find out more.

    You may want to add your location to your profile under "User CP" in the top menu bar.

    I get most of my items from Digi Key, but I'm not sure what the shipping to your location would be.

    Took the words right from my fingers, this is the main reason everyone does this.

    North America cannot buy through Farnell correct?

    I think their counterpart here might be Newark?

    I think their website is really clunky. I like Mousers site much better. Plus Digikey charges tax. But I really have not compared overall cost between the two.

    My apologies for not paying enough attention to the location.

    I think everyone was suggesting you put your location in on your profile so it shows on posts. It helps when giving advice and makes it interesting to see where others are in the world.

    This seems to be the same as Newark though their shipping appears to be a bit cheaper.

    Thanks for all your replies.

    I found these stores appropriate to my location:
    - Digi-key
    - Futurlec

    Digi-key is richer in components compared to Futurlec. However, Futurlec has nice shipping options at very good rates.

    The components prices are pretty much good at both stores.

    Thank you guys.
