    I use juno, zipdj, digital-tunes.net and rarely beatport or breakbeat.co.uk

    I like the iTunes Store for iPhone/iTunes integration and cloud accessibility. Also, occasionally tracks are cheaper on iTunes than Beatport. If you look around you can sometimes find discounted iTunes gift cards and Beatport doesn't even sell gift cards.

    ~beatport.com covers most of the stuff I want that's more "mainstream" I'd say.

    ~trackitdown.net is where I go for a lot of hardcore/hardstyle. Purely because beatport has crap in that department.

    ~junodownload.com I check out here and again. When I was following a lot of stuff really heavy in Dubstep I could find some really good releases here that weren't up on beatport yet.

    I haven't really bought from iTunes yet. Maybe it's because of the lack of Mp3, since they use the different format and I just like to keep everything the same. But somehow, I feel like using the other sites is generally better for actual DJing purposes. Just for listening, iTunes is perfect. But I like my Mp3's bruv.

    +1 for this, haven't got a huge selection but you can get flac/wav for the same price as mp3, instead of paying an extra 1.00 on juno (which takes the piss, seriously).

    Don't forget amazon. They don't have everything, but are usually cheaper.

    Traxsource.com is real good for various flavors of house and other off the wall kind of stuff.
