Moved to eBay  Time owned: more than 12 months
This supplier has moved their store to eBay:

They no longer carry the resistor kit and seem to specialize in stepper motors but still have interesting parts from time to time.

Can't beat that  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
To replenish my ever shrinking supply of resistors and capacitors, I ordered the resistor pack and several capacitor packs. Everything arrived within 10 days, well packed, each component denomination in a clearly labelled plastic bag. It's hard to imagine that you could get a better deal anywhere.

Their range of products is limited, and for more unusual parts you'll probably turn to Mouser or DigiKey, but for bread-and-butter stuff their price and service are hard to beat.

Good price, fast shipment  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
My stock of resistors was seriously depleted so I started looking for an inexpensive way to get a wide range of values. Radio Shack has a nice selection of 1/4W carbon composition resistors (500 for $12.49 part number 271-312). The resistors come on strips of 5 to 30 and are not marked other than with the color code. I spent an hour or so sorting them out and putting them in my parts drawers.

An Internet search brought up They specialize in parts stocking kits. They have a very limited selection of component types but what they have are great prices for stock components. The RES-001 kit has 1080 1/4W 1% metal film resistors for roughly US$20. I bought the 1/4W and 1/2W resistor kits, a Zener diode kit, and a potentiometer set. The order arrived eight days later. All the parts are loose in small zip-lock bags with the values clearly marked. It only took me 10 minutes to distribute all the parts to my drawers.

Further extended!  Time owned: more than 12 months
The resistor kit has been extended to include all values from 0Ohm to 10MOhm and now contains 1080 pieces. The best thing is that the price is still the same.

Fast Components has introduced some new kits recently including a 1/2W resistor kit, a series of SMD component kits and development PCBs.
