I've mostly steered clear of Stihl just because of their policy of trying to force you to buy their exclusive parts at their inflated prices. However, there are some times their parts can be a good deal, especially carbs bought off eBay, as Roger mentioned.
I recently rebuilt a MS250 chainsaw and while the prices for most of the Stihl parts were high, I got a new carb, shipped to me for $17.95. That's less than twice the price of a rebuild kit shipped, in most cases, so I agree, it doesn't pay to try rebuilding one at that cost.
