 From the look of their ad in SC this month, DSE are getting rid of the
last of their components. Well at least Jaycar are opening up in Coffs.

I just tried the home page and severals variants of it, I found on
google, but none connect:
http://www.dse.com.au /

did they get rid of their on line shop also?

Perhaps they didn't pay the bill, like micro$oft did a few years back. :-)

Cheers Don...

In the latest ad they advertise the web address as www.dicksmith.com.au
But that doesn't work either.
Some geek screwed up a domain server change-over perhaps?

I am sorry to see them go. DSE in Batemans Bay was the only source for
components that could be called "local" , they had a useful range and what
was in the drawers almost always matched what the computer said they had.
The staff were helpful and seemed equally willing to hunt down a few
resistors or a laser printer. I have nothing but praise for them.

When we were on holiday in the Sunshine Coast (QLD) a couple of weeks
back, the DSE we saw there at Maroochydore was absolutely woeful in
every way, especially when it comes to components. (empty or nearly
empty component trays all over the place).  I was extremely pissed off
as I had been trying to source a quantity of the screw terminal
strips,
(part: P4850)  (http://www.dse.com.au/cgi-bin/dse.storefront /
4ac73725045932682740c0a87e01065c/Product/View/P4850)
2 other DSE's in different towns I had tried in other areas had none,
and this DSE had only one. (Haymans want $12.50 each for equivalent)
(About the only good thing about this store for die hard Dick Smith
fanatics, they still had the old "Dick Head" signage out the back of
the store facing the customer car park.  They might have had it out
the front too, but I didnt bother to look.

Quite by accident, we discovered a Jaycar a few KM away. It was
stunning in presentation, shop fit-out, and the staff seemed helpful
from what I saw of them. Would have easily had 400% of the floor area
of the DSE and had an excellent stock (by todays standars) of
electronic components, books, kits and other such gear that has been
steadily disappearing over the years elsewhere.   I would have spent
more time there, but anyone else here who is married will know why I
didnt ;)

They of course, had a section of "fart" type devices, electric shock
toys and a "shoe stink deodoriser" ;), and they DID have the terminal
strips.  I bought 30 of them, don't want to get caught short again  !

While I don't work for Jaycar, and rarely go there (as there isn't one
anywhere near where I live, only DSE), if this store is anything to go
by, they are going in the opposite direction to Dicky's when it comes
to parts, which should be good news for anyone on here who needs these
kind of retailers.

Re: DSE


DSE gone from a useful to hopeless store. Our business use to spend around
$1k a month there and we used to get a trade discount. DSE put a heap of
dumb know nothing about anything sheilas in and would not give us any
discount. I would have thought a $1k a month regular no nonsense pay cash
customer was worthwhile. Never been back and opened an account at Electus.

The only factor that indicates a stores success is it's return to
shareholders.

You sound surprised. DSE is trying to convert to consumer electronics only.
They don't mind losing your business because they don't intend to continue
supplying you anyway.
