Look, all the disti's search thingies have good and bad points. If you 
use them enough to get used to their various quirks then they can be 
useful. I use mostly Mouser but they don't stock everything, and 
sometimes the prices at DK are way better. An example: Mouser cannot 
search for non-polarized caps. So I go to DK to find part numbers and 
then search Mouser to see if they are cheaper, which they usually are.

Tools make you job easier. Learn them, use them.
