Maybe you can get a sample of a new car while you're at it.

Matttcattt, consider offering yourself as a free engineer sample and possibilities will arise

You must be dreaming - those kind of creature does never shut up. You know, they cry around and make various background noise so you have too increase volume until you donīt understand this "MUST this be so loud??" anymore.



(edit: this counts specially for blondes...)

Matttcattt, samples are mostly given when a relative new type of semiconductor must be promoted. TIP2955/TIP3055 are very old ( and not recommended anymore for audio ) so you can't expect that companies will have them in their sample program. Besides they're so ridiculous cheap that asking samples of them would give me red cheeks.

Never had samples of caps, neither normal ones nor electrolytics. I wanted to import caps from a certain brand to the Netherlands and even in that case I wasn't given any samples.

Voltage regulators are given away in sample programs but this counts only for newer LDO types. You don't expect them to sample 78xx/79xx do you ? If you want the newer types you must be prepared that they're SMD most of the time. Prices of regulators are very low too.

When I was at school I used to work besides my study to pay for my schoolbooks and hobbies.

Maybe because those times, there was no internet and no free samples program
