I found their storefront junk to be better priced, but haggling is needed 
sometimes. Sometimes I find outrageous bargains (like a specialized 
microfiche camera that I bought for $50 and sold for $2k) and sometimes I 
think they are on drugs. I think that pricelist is for companies that need 
something perfect and with a warrantee. On the other hand I haven't been 
there in 2 years.

I'm not sure what they are trying to achieve, a museum or a place for 
companies to find parts for systems that the manufacturer no longer 
supports. Some of their stuff seems to have no value to me. Of course there 
are lots of PDP11/??? out there needing help.
