I agree with Chris's warnings in general.

siliconkit.com is the vendor I bought my WRAP parts
from last year and everything arrived fine and on time.

Good to be cautious with these small vendors though.

  Agreed. But desperate times (i.e. lack of available WRAP boards out
  there)
  call for desperate measures.

  ;-)

  Actually, I did check that out beforehand and www.siliconkit.com is
  redirected to the URL shown in the original message, and a WHOIS of
  the
  domain registrant showed me a match to the company, and that it was
  registered back in October of 2001.

  Of course common sense, company background checks, customer feedback
  and due
  diligence is implied with any online transaction.

  P.S. Chris, thanks for all of your great input on this list.

  I don't doubt your account or your experience with them, but that's a
  dynamic DNS name. I would *never* buy anything from any site that
  uses
  a DynDNS name. That just screams "I'm not serious about my company",
  and gives me the feeling that they may disappear tomorrow. Not that
  the same isn't possible with a registered domain, but I'd be less
  hesitant if it had one. One could even CNAME a DynDNS name to a
  registered domain, so it's not like it would even require a change in
  hosting.

  From the sounds of it this is a legit reseller, but I'd approach it
  with serious caution.

  -Chris
