Where to buy components in NZ
« on: February 07, 2011, 09:09:26 PM »
Hi there,
I live in New Zealand and I was wondering if anyone knows a good place to buy components and micro-controllers from locally.
Currently I buy from active components.com which is pretty good but I was wondering if there is anywhere else where I don't have to pay much for shipping.

For electronic components i get all of my stuff from futurlec.com.au

for orders to Australia and NZ the shipping is really good. for $49 worth of product shipping is just $4!

Here is the shipping costs page.http://www.futurlec.com.au/Delivery.jsp

with their standard post it takes around 2 weeks(well it has for me and i am in Australia) which has not been a problem for me but if you need it quicker they can ship express post.

I have had no bad experiences with them and have gotten what i ordered every time. another plus is that their packaging is good and well thought out!
