I have used ComSec without experiencing the hassles others have described. What I like most about them is you do not have to have cash deposited in their account (unlike TDWaterhouse, who I also use) and E*Trade.

The reason I do use TDWaterhouse is you can buy any security, not just the top 150 Companies that ComSec restrict you to.

I did try E*Trade once to trade, but that was when they were having problems with a hacker who put them off-line for a couple of days.

I find ComSec's Watch Lists great to use as is their free company research. I use TDWaterhouse's free Portfolio Valuation service to monitor my gains.

I have not used any other e-brokers so cannot say they are any better/ worse as I have no complaints so far with the 2 I've used - I always get through and service is prompt.
