Are there any decent Amiga stores???

I did a bit of browsing to try and get a fair price for how much a Mediator or a Powerflyer would cost, and the only websites I can find that sell them want obscene amounts of money for it.
"That's fine", I thought, until I started looking at the other items these same websites had to offer.

For example, Software Hut wants $130 for a regular 20gig harddrive!!! And you can now easily pick one up for about $40.


It's the same with any other "Amiga" site I go to. The question I have is, if these companies are overcharging for "non-Amiga" items, how can I be so sure they aren't overcharging for their Amiga items?

It sems that they do, mate. They have the "advantage" of being the few Amiga stores still in operation, and I believe some blind zealotic amigans would buy from them if only to "support this cool shop that still supports Amiga".

I know only one good shop, and it's www.datakompaniet.no . They are quite decent and offer good service. At least that's how it was last time I visited (it's been a year or so)

And what about Power Computing ?

Power Computing [UK]

I ordered from them some years ago, great service ..

Datakompaniet is also good, bought lots of them ... But they are maybe a bit expensive ...

PowerC seems to have lower prices, but their selection seems somewhat limited, some items I was looking for aren't listed. And their webshop is a bit messy browsing through. But still, it's an alternative.

I havnt seen a shop in the US that doesnt bend you over and screw you with a telephone pole.

Softwarehut is too expensive for a dead platform like the amiga. I assume some people will spend $140 for a $40 part to keep these vultures operating, but I am not one of them.

I would never purchase from Softhut, the prices are indeed blown up. Ordering from any other shop in the world would be much cheaper.
