Where to buy Plexiglass online?

Can anyone recommend a good online vendor of plexiglass? I have found a few such as:

PLEXIGLASS sheets, Acrylic sheet, UHMW, Lexan polycarbonate, Fiberglass sheets, Plastic Sheet & Plexiglass Fabrication, Weld-On Plexiglas® Glue, PTFE

estreetplastics.com

but would like to hear from someone who has first hand experience dealing with these or another.

I am curious as to why a 3/8" x 24" x 48" smoked sheet is almost twice as expensive at eplastics than estreetplastics:

.375" x 24" x 48" 2064 Gray Plexiglass Acrylic Sheet Paper Masked

Grey Smoked Transparent Plexiglass Acrylic

is this a true case of one just being cheaper, or is one a less quality product?

Re: Where to buy Plexiglass online?

Wish you were in North Carolina, I have one sheet 1/2" smoke 4x8 color 2074 left from my project that I would love to get rid of at a great price. I paid $440/ sheet for 1/2 and $360/ sheet of 3/8. The company was Tru-cast that my supplier purchased the sheets.

I don't know about online, but you can't go wrong contacting Orange County Industrial Plastics (OCIP) in Anaheim, Ca.

They sell to anyone, low minimum, and a huge selection of plastics products!

I'd try them, their web address is Plexiglass Sheets, Acrylic Sheet, Plastic Displays, Fabrication
