I have always liked shopping at AliExpress because I get samples at 1x cost. If I buy from a distributor I end up paying 2-3x. The exception was IRF7862 that cost more for fakes than originals from Arrow for some reason. I actually realized that Arrow have very decent pricing on MOSFET’s, so might have gone a bit mad yesterday.
AliExpress did not like my chips and the pictures I sent them either. Sadly I waited to long after the first batch, but well – you win 50, loose 1 – A waste majority of sellers on AliExpress are honest and without their help to keep my cost down this blog would not have existed!
