Buying Online

Hey.. so I found this site which sells raspberry pi and components..
Hacktronics
So I want to know that

  1. Is this website a scam or legit sellers??
  2. Can websites like these be scams??
  3. Should I buy from them??

I say this because the prices are fairly very low... although the pi is same rate.. but like the heat sinks is jst 50 cents whereas on amazon its 20 bucks.. is that possible??

Theres this website you can use to test whether a site is a safe one to buy from http://www.scamadviser.com/

I scanned Hacktronics and it has a score of 77% trustworthy.

The main question is... should I buy??

From what I've googled, it's legit. It's not on ripoff report either and everything's on rip off report. If you want to, I don't see why not.

Why not just get from Amazon or MCM electronics?

They are like 30 bucks expensive on amazon!! Or any other..
My parents wont allow that

OT: 2200 families were scammed online in my country thinking they were renting a sea side house. Got nothing more than tears and less fuel.

Lol but theres a difference in 80 bucks and 80 grand...
