Where do you guys and gals recommend buying parts from? My friend broke her ring around her ball assembly.

I have seen some sellers from Hong Kong (some on eBay and some just searching Google) and they have VERY cheap prices, but as stated before take a while to get to you. I have yet to order from one, more afraid of being ripped off.

Has anyone ever ordered from a Hong Kong supplier? If so link if possible and how was your exp. with your order from them?

I'm also a long time customer from the HK-based company CNN.cn. Never had any problem with those reliable guys so far, I must say. Good CS as well. I recommend them.
Don't try to look for very cheap stuffs from Ebay, you'll only get a bunch of crap made of low quality and not original.

I have ordered from overseas suppliers in the past (don't remember if they were from Hong Kong or not) and it's kind of hit or miss. Just make sure you are buying what you think you are (new vs. used vs. refurb). I have found some really good deals on things like OEM chargers.

so if it's cheap it's probably not worth it in the long run. makes sense, where did you go through?

I remember having tried several from various places found through Ebay, to get stuffs for my 8320 and 8520. Like a lot of people out there, at that time cheap was the only thing I cared about. Since I have my 9700 I really pay more attention to what I purchase. CNN.cn from HK remains the top for original parts, and they're reliable on what they offer.
They don't sell those keyboards of non original don't know where the colors are from, like many other online stores, colors that wipe out after few days and letters pop out (like Truesupplier and company)...well, you get what you pay for, right?
