You should buy your servos from robotics companies, or companies that seriously support the robotics community, such as
Lynxmotion
Acroname
Budget Robotics
Parallax
etc.

Places like Tower Hobbies are like the Walmarts of the hobby business.  They keep their prices so low, so that they
drive their competition out of business, and then you are stuck with their lame product selection.

It is these robotics companies that make some of the really cool stuff, that places like Tower Hobbies would never
carry.  The money the robotics companies make off of servos (and other parts) is small, but the little that they make
helps keep them in business.
