Hi folks, I need to get out of CDW for a reseller.  They make too many mistakes for a two-man shop to deal with running a medium sized business.  

What are my options?  Who are your favs?  Im in California and would  prefer the biz local to me.

Thanks

newegg.com is a clear winner in the customer relations category.
I would also recommend buy.com and cables2go.com, and then there's always amazon.com.  You can look at www.resellerratings.com, keeping in mind that if there are only a small number of reviews, they might be biased.

those vendors are not quite on the level i need.  i am more interested in a company that can act as a reseller for servers, enterprise solutions, etc.  im in the market for a netapp san and various cisco goodies.

Ah, it wasn't clear from the question that server hardware was all you were interested in.  I don't have much to recommend except http://www.aberdeeninc.com, but keep in mind that a good vendor can run into bad streaks, just as IBM was fine until the DeathStars came out.

The Ultimate Checklist to Optimize Your Website

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

Do you really mean you want a reseller or do you want a distributor?

Depends upon what you looking for.

Synnex is in Nocal and Ingram Micro is in Socal if you are looking for wholesale stuff.
