Does anyone has experience with

I sent them an email:
They sell to individuals
They sell in small quantities (not every item)
They do not have minimum order
They seem to have a lot of stuff including hard to find items
They only ship Fedex

They are an electronics distributer that has been around for years. They
compete with Arrow and Avnet (the two largest distributers). I have worked
for multiple companies that have bought from Future over the years. That
being said, I've never ordered from them myself.

Thanks to Mike and Michael.
I just bumped into their web site by chance , I never heard of them before and saw they have been in business for 40 years.
When they answer me and said they ship only via Fedex I got the idea that the sipping would be expensive.
In any case living in Curacao always make shipping expensive and as they have a wide range of parts I would avoid ordering from several places.
I'll give it a shot.
