Digging www.pc-direct.co.za, use their stock check system and get the most updated pricing live.

Quotes come within minutes via email, and they have like 25 000 products online and that's one of the largest I've seen yet.

Top customer support, okes are on it!

Crown Technologies

I have Ordered a Wacom Digital Tablet from them

The Bad
I have not received my item yet, it's gonna take around 2 more weeks (have waited 1 week so far)

The Good
- They are definitely the cheapest out of ALL the sites I have visited (well, with my item at least)
- It's a really niche item, so I don't blame them for taking a while - plus they did tell me they didn't have stock.
- Easy process to order from them


So yeah, they have loads of niche Items NOBODY else has, at VERY cheap prices - but you might have to wait a week or two. You can however check for stock BEFORE you order though (I didn't :D)
On most of their other products though, it is "Next day Delivery" if you order before 12:00 noon or something

here is their website:
www.crowntech.co.za


Edit: Oh, and when I found out it was 3 weeks they told me they are happy to refund me if I didn't want to wait that long :)

For accessories they do seem to have ALOT of stuff indeed. Their Cintiq 21UX is 2k less then what I got it for!!!!!!

But in other areas they seem to be seriously lacking. (Was just looking at chassis and PSU as Im upgrading those atm)

Shot for this one though, was actually looking for a place to buy different pen nibs :D
