Is it advisable to buy parts online when you're assembling your own system or would that be opening yourself up to getting ripped off or scammed?

Hi, I buy nearly everything on line. For many components there is no alternative. A few of the best places are Parts Express, MCM, Mouser, Digikey, Allied, Antique Electronic Supply, and Jameco. There are many others if in doubt ask us.


Good Listening

These days buying things online is something that most people do, so there are a lot of reliable sites. However, yes, it is possible to run into some scammers.

A big YES. The convenience and speed with which you can shop online makes it the only option for most people. I also believe that you get more variety here. Just ensure to settle on the reputable companies.
