	I have had good luck buying from Pacific Solutions on SE Powell
at 52nd.
	Buying from a local company who builds their own systems works
fairly well because they are generally fairly aware about which parts
are the most reliable (if they do a decent volume of business), and they
depend on positive word of mouth.
	That said, they may not have the particular piece of hardware you are
looking for.
