I've bought from them before.  If you aren't sure just what you want and 
want to see before you buy or get advice they're great, especially for 
bulk stuff.  But they cost more than you can find on the 'net.

One thing to consider when buying bulk cable is how easy it is to work 
with.  The kind of box, insulating material, coloring, etc. can all 
affect how easy it is to get the job done.  Not very easy to evaluate 
over the 'net.
