I use http://www.majestichonda.com/ They are one of the oldest Honda dealers in the US and I've been pleased with their service and prompt shipping. Have an '07 CRV and just completed the 60k check-up replacing all the fluids including the rear diff (AWD model). Cost me around $275 including shipping vs. the $1600 at local dealer and for this price they would not change in-line trans filter. Only wish we could get FW Cash Back, (hint to the administrators).

+1 for Majestic Honda. Certain items are crazy expensive (like most dealers) but you can search for your part easily and sometimes it's cheaper than elsewhere. I remember them having specials online for parts on a weekly or monthly basis, hope they still do that.

Rock Auto Parts Surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet. They are a good go-to for parts for any brand. Very good prices overall and reasonable shipping. Search the forum to find a code to get 5% off your order.

H Parts Only has helped me out the last few times I needed some parts for my 2009 accord. I found them online & they were close by so I had them install the parts !

I use to be an auto tech, and even ran my own shop before I got out. There are not as many suppliers as their once was. Many have been bought out and others went out of business. Even then many times you buy a part from ABC Company but in the box is an OEM or another brand part as there are just not that many makers any more.
With that said I usually bought the cheapest name brand part I could find and had very few issues doing that. I would skip the Chinese no-name parts but other than that buying from the dealer is rarely a smart thing, unless there is a known issue and even then the aftermarket usually fixes it before the OEM does.
Right now the big 3 I use, as I still do some work on the side, are Advance auto with coupons, Rockauto, and eBay (watch out for cheap Chinese parts though). For hard to find custom parts check out fan sites for that maker. So find a Mercedes site for special Mercedes parts and so on. Also use a salvage pick yard for hard to find parts as well.
Had to change a power window switch. By the time I had all open and connected, the up was down and the down was up. They had inverted the plastic connector connection, so there was no way to change it, unless resplicing. Not good at that, so just had to deal with that for the rest of the car's life.
