The most important function of a distributor is to
actually carry the parts listed in their catalogs, unfortunately this is
often not the case. The other common problem in dealing with distributors
is many have terrible and inaccurate web sites, which force engineers into
calling in, and talking to sales people, who have zero product
knowledge. Sadly most distributors' idea of customer service is
sending out annoying sales people who like to drop by and waste your time.
Probably the best general electronics distributor is Digikey, because of
their efficiency and inventory. Their web site is a powerful engineering
tool which allows a designer to quickly filter through thousands of
similar products, to find just the right part.
