Default "Component super store"

Has anyone made purchases from "component super store" before?

Their prices seem almost too good to be true, but mouser/digikey/newark are getting more expensive by the day.

These guys have the ztx450 for like 20 cents, and $1 for the irfp240.

experiences greatly appreciated.

If you mean Future electronics, I have done business with them as an an employee of an electronic manufacturer. They were fine, but I doubt they sell many parts in ones or twos.

Thanks, ordered a couple of tubes of fets (for 1/3 the price of digikey), and had them sent to my work.

Future also carries WIMA (so does Mouser).

FWIW, the IRFP240PBF sold for $1.59 in quantities of 250+ just a few weeks ago and the lowest price wasn't at Future. In the past 5 years I have seen the price as low as $0.60.

Semi's are trading like stocks.
