If you are a real hardware geek into amateur (ham) radio, DIY electronic projects, and obscure server racks, HSC is the place for you. Dusty bins of electronic components, semi-working oscilloscopes, project boxes, and miscellaneous parts of all sorts adorn simple shelves. There is no place in Davis like it, so the 25 mile trip up I-80 to Madison is an occasional pilgrimage for those who think Fry's is way too mainstream.

If you liked this place, you may also like Surplus Stuff and Metro Electronics.

HFE Electronics was previously known as HSC Electronics.

Directions: Right on Madison, head east to the Strings Restaurant, turn right onto College Oak, up to Amber Lane, and right into the parking lot. It is not well labelled - if you cross Auburn (on Madison or on College Oak), you've gone too far.
