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.

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.
