Terms And Conditions - Reasonable Or Not?

Perhaps I only have this problem because I read the "fine print." One of the VARs we use for IP gear has added a terms and conditions contract that you click-agree to when you send them an order. Streakwave has been good to us over the past 8 years or so, but now they have these T&Cs.

There are lots of things not to like here. In paragraph 1, it says

Streakwave's sales of Products to Customer are made on an all sales final basis and are purchased at Customer's own risk. Streakwave will not accept and expressly objects to and rejects, any other terms and conditions (whether written or oral) originating from Customer that purport to modify, add to, or otherwise vary the terms and conditions stated here in.

Those are the sorts of terms I would expect for used stuff on eBay. And paragraph 11 requires the purchaser to take on all liability from third parties without regard as to who might be at fault.

Do people accept these sorts of terms in a quest to get the best prices? Or are they assuming that "click-thru" contracts don't count? Or perhaps folks think this is OK?

Thanks.
