Wouldn't it be nice if we could get all the electronic supplies and components we need from one place? Unfortunately, no such place exists, which is why we are bringing you this list so you know where to buy everything at the best price! Arduino's, shields, boards, LEDs, resistors, switches, tools and more.
First place: Tayda Electronics (TaydaElectronics.com). Need basic components? This is the place to shop. Stuff is uber cheap, and you can get parts in high quantities without paying high prices. I'm pretty sure they are based in Tailand and shipping is pretty cheap. Note: there is a $5 minimum order. Here's some of the stuff you can get from here:
Smart-Prototyping: (Smart-Prototyping.com). This is without doubt the best place to order custom circuit boards (hence prototyping). They also offer small ICs Arduino boards, and tools. They used to be in Germany, but are now located in Shenzen. Shipping isn't too bad for the cheapest option, but it might take a while
DealeXtreme (DX.com). This place has EVERYTHING! Tons of Arduino's, cheap shields and adapter boards, and components. You can get an Arduino for $7! Check out the entire category under Electrical & Tools then go to Arduino & SCM
