Overview

DigiKey is primarily geared towards large vendor purchases of discrete electronics components, but it does not turn down individuals. It is a very useful source of parts when needing odd ended little things to build your electronics components. If you need something really hard to find then DigiKey is the best place to get it, maybe the only.

Pricing

DigiKey tends to be a little more expensive than places such as Jameco or Mouser when purchasing small quantities. However if you do manage to have the money to purchase items in batches of 1000+ you get a considerable discount, much more so than the other locations mentioned.
