EVERYBODY RELIES ON MT GX HERE?

SEEMS RELIABLE, BUT NOT SO CHEAP COMPARED TO BANKS... IN LARGE AMOUNTS

WHAT ARE THE ALTERNATIVES?

There's really a lot of alternatives. Coinbase is my dream pick, but it currently can't exchange bitcoins within the hour and proccess USD->BTC buys in a week long ordeal, watch for it in the future.
bitstamp is sleek, btc-e looks solid.
I'm using campBX simply because it deals with a small volume well.

Btc-e is an alternative
vircurex is another

Neither have the volume that mt-gox has, but both do alternate coins also.

I'm using Vircurex and Coinbase...just 'cause, I suppose.  The hellish wait at Coinbase sucks.  I like Vircurex.  So far so good.  Having said that (practically nothing) I am relatively new other digital currencies.  ("Other" meaning other than BitCoin).  I am learning fast.  Wallets are not empty but I am not spending big bucks at this point.  Still, I liked the idea that MtGox used Dwolla but that feature is apparently dead?Huh  Tired to buy yesterday that way and the Dwolla option is gone from the menu???  

Anyone know of another way to get BitCoin with Dwolla?

I can vow for coinbase, but prepare for trouble, and make it double.

Wait times between purchases and selling varies, but generally takes about 5 days. In the BTC market, this is enough to put you on edge. However it has it's advantages.

As for exchanges, I'd recommend using one of the top 3-4 exchanges after mtgox. I mean, that way you get to enjoy higher volumes with less worry over technical problems

We exist, in a seemingly empty universe, bound by perception, and yet most people live in self created illusions and their own versions of reality. It may be, that our logic denies truth. For all we know, we are utterly wrong. We are drones, grasping at self awareness. Nothing is more important than the truth. If I could, I'd become eternal. I'd grasp power, and take myself into the infinity. I want to know, I want to understand, and I want to feel it; I am a machine... and I can know much more.

I use bitstamp.net -- my sepa transfer only took 1 day for them to put in my account.  I like the real-time buy/sell views and order placement with instant order and limit order options.

If you're day trading in real time, it's the only option as far as I know.

Prices usually stick right with the mtgox price.

I feel like every one of those sites, I have seen on Reddit about why you shouldn't trade with them. Especially BTC-E

yeah, there's always someone who had a bad experience--it's like reading tripadviser before going somewhere--there's always someone who says the place sucks, lol

I guess recently people had a lot of trouble with bitstamp.  I just started using them after they upgraded and moved a lot of their operation to the UK.  All good so far, but I"m always prepared for the worst.

I prefer BTC-E.COM. Very reliable exchange. Bitstamp is also good!

I just wasn't able to get money into btc-e, finally I gave up after jumping through a lot of hoops.  I understand that's why their btc price is lower--people can't get their money there to buy.

Ya, it all seems to be a bit risky and I certainly considered all of that and took a leap of faith.  I have bought, transferred to my wallet(s) and leave nothing on-line.  So far nothing terrible has happened except for the fatuous wait time with coinbase.

Well, bitcoin-24.com was the next big exchange (at least in Europe). I've lost money there...
My suggestion: spread the risk. Try various channels, prefer small transactions rather than big chunks.

I personally really like Bitstamp for purchasing bitcoins. I started out using MtGox a few months ago but have since transferred over and primarily use Bitstamp. I have yet to exchange bitcoins for fiat currency though so I do not know which exchange would be best for that.

I like the idea of that.  This whole thing is wrought with perils and pitfalls.  I am not the most skilled computer guy but I do have some understanding.  I respect those that speak the language fluently.  Just the same I will follow the rule of backing things up and storing things elsewhere.
