Pacparts REALLY needs to put the following disclaimer (or something similar) on their website. It's common knowledge around here, but they probably lose tens (or hundreds) of thousands of dollars a year from prospective customers who don't know: "Pacparts does not keep a huge inventory of parts on hand. We carry electronic parts for more than twenty-five companies, and we've chosen to not have to gamble on which Casio watches, which JVC stereo components, and which Sony everything will be the most popular and/or most in need of parts. Our not having to gamble on different models and different parts keeps us from having millions of parts on hand, which keeps costs down, which we can then pass along to you.
"If you need a part, realize that our website is liable to show it as 'out of stock.' If you order it from us, we will order it from the manufacturer and usually have it delivered to us -- and then sent to you -- within three weeks."
