[sdiy] are Mouser toggle switches really that good?!

Hi folks,

So I just went browsing around to look at some simple SPDT toggle switches.

Went to my first choice, Jameco, and saw they had bunch from $1.30 to $1.50

THEN I browsed over to Mouser to see what they had.

After sifting through the drop-down filters (which is a great idea to
include on their website) I found what I was looking for.  SPST
switches from $2.16 to $5.00.

This doesn't seem like an obscene difference in the amount of money
spent on each switch so I'm wondering if Mouser switches really are
better than say, Jameco?

Better metals, contacts, stainless steel yahoo-ma-flubbers?

There's gotta be a metallurgist somewhere around here...

Still, the Mouser stuff sure looks pretty.

Thanks.  :)
