Supplier Info/Ratings/Suggestions?
So, it appears that it is forbidden to explicitly refer/link to a supplier. In that case, how are we supposed to get info that might help differentiate between suppliers? It looks like prices for current-generation gear are set by the manufacturers, since all the suppliers seem to have the same price. With price out as a differentiator, it would be nice to get info on service, responsiveness, useful secondary programs like automatic shipment of consumables, etc. Obviously, this information would need to be looked at carefully but, in the aggregate, seems like it would help identify the "good guys" among the dozens of options out there.

Hi ChaosTheorist,
You can refer to the suppliers on the list here on this board by their number. For example, I have used Suppliers #1 and #18 and have had no trouble with either one of them.
Hang in there for more responses to your post.

And if you find a supplier not on the list send SS a PM and tell him to add them.

I think we better get this thread back on topic.... before we get yelled at.

So for the sake of decorum, if a supplier is not on the list you could suggest them (however you choose, sternly, politely, demandingly, nicely, etc.) to SS for addition to the list. Eat-popcorn

RE: Supplier Info/Ratings/Suggestions?
I've bought some stuff from Supplier #2 and #10, both very good and recommended especially if you happen to be in Australia or elsewhere where prices goes through the roof

If you find a supplier not on the list, you can say the name ...
for example: Zonk CPAP but not Zonk CPAP dot com or provide link to Zonk CPAP .. if ever there is one Coffee
