Where does everyone buy third party plugins? Straight from the manufacturer (Red Giant, Gen Arts, CyCore)? Or do you buy from a site like Toolfarm?

Thanks for the help.

In most cases I prefer to buy direct unless I'm buying several one-off type plugins (developers that only make one plugin that I'd ever use), which there are few of these days anyway. Otherwise, it generally doesn't make a difference as long as, if you do buy indirect, it's from a good long-standing re-seller ... ToolFarm is the only one that immediately comes to mind. So, it's really a matter of price (direct is not always cheapest), how much support you may or may not need and whether there are any purchase perks that you find worthwhile.
