Well Amigakit is probably the most active dealer in the world. I have to say Vesalia is very pro and reliable as well. However, if you are in the usa watch out for amigakit as they have a "us site" but no us location. So all gear ships from uk. I had an order with them for a few items one being an important replacement drive and it over 6 weeks for delivery!

Thank you acadiel!

I live in the US, and I have ordered several times from Amigakit and have received my items in less than 9 business days after ordering. That is truly amazing given it is coming from outside the US and it has to get thru US Customs. If you live in the US I would not worry about watching out for Amigakit as they are very good people and getting your paid items to you is very important to them. No, this was not a paid endorsement by Amigakit just a past customer who likes to support companies who support me and my hobbies. Thanks Amigakit!!!

WHEW!!!

I am glad you told me that Canada was still above the US, for a minute there I thought that the magnetic poles had switched and that the earth went topsy turvey, putting the US above Canada. Happy that didn't happen YET!!!

But watch out for Dec 21, 2012

It took them 9 days to deliver to you, they must not like you, I live in Pennsyltucky and it only takes them 2 days to deliver to me.

Hi,

Are you trying to say that you are on top of things.

Knew a bunch of canucks at one time but ran them all off.

You all do know that Software Hut (as in Amiga stuff) is now a side line for Joe. It is NOT his main business.
I honestly think he is just trying help when and where he can. If you had ever met him, you would understand.

Yeah he's a great guy. If he has what you need he'll dig for it, give you a great price and ship it to you, but its not his business anymore, so it may take him awhile to do something for you. BUT if your looking for something and he has it, its like finding the perfect part or piece, well worth the wait.
