Its easy for UK companies to buy in from Chinese companies very cheap components and pass them on as genuine parts.

This is why I only buy from Farnell and RS Components.
They are a little more expensive but worth it in saved aggravation.

I got some IRF4227 transistors off ebay and they popped so easily.
Got some RS versions and no problems at all.

2SC2238/2SA968 are practically unobtanium nowdays - and they are hard to sub due to their high speed.

There is a lot of kerfuffle over at Audiokarma too about buyers being burnt by Littlediode.

Absolutely true, I myself got duped into buying the 2ST5949 you can clearly see that the fake, at least by looks are no where near the originals .

Took a chance with LittleDiode and bought a GI radio tuner chip for the dead Crown FM1 FM tuner.
it works :-)
Yes sort of expensive but what would you charge to keep a part on the shelf for 30-40 years.
Better to pay the 20 pounds than throwing my FM1 in the junk pile.
Think of the cost if they have to do up test gigs to sample test all their stock.
Hopefully LittleDiode realizes that without testing as above there are the odd ones that do not fit the bill and who ever they got them from stiffed them.

this Littlediode guy is a real scumbag. He admitted he sold me fake transistors after giving me a full refund. I sent ebay a copy of the email but of course he's still a seller. Ebay only cares about seller fee revenue even if they sell fake junk
