Question Aussie DIYers: Where do you buy your drivers?

First post after a long time lurking

I am wondering where my fellow Aussies are buying their drivers from? Are most of you importing from the US or getting them local?

I was going to post a lengthy reply, but in getting the answers I searched the forum. It's all in here.

If you have any specific questions I can help.

Thanks for both your answers. I did a search and I couldn't find a concise thread to this question. Given the number of us Aussies here it would be nice to pull all the information together into one thread.

I do have one further question and that is which drive brands are reasonably priced compared to o/s prices?

My link still works as I'm probably cookied.... it's now Digital Megahouse... same place, different name.

Wagner and WES are the same but one shows you the driver details and I think is one of their retail arms and I use WES to buy as it's their trade arm. If you have an ABN, buy through WES.

The prices are reasonable when you take into account if you bought them form overeas. Shipping which is horrendous, GST on shipments over a certain amount... used to be if the GST was less than $50 then there was no payment ($500 worth) but I think that's changed. Then there are duties and custom fees on some shipments..... PITA.... more trouble than what it's worth.
