I think someone mentioned in some of the treads that there are 30,000 members of DIY Audio, so if lets say 30% members order 5 free samples (only) that is 45,000 free samples of let say OPA 637. If X amount of people order and post them on ebay for sale, you make the numbers.
Any abuse is not acceptable and it does hurt us all. I really hope that there are some ways to stop abusers. It is amazing that you could go and order over the web and in a short time find the samples nicely packed in front your door with not a single dollar put into.
So at least do not buy stuff from ebay when someone selling in lots of 5pcs, or 10 pcs.

ti samples are fast in here! i got my orders in about four days! however there is a limit of 8 items per six months this makes sense so as to keep requestors from selling them!....on semi is far more generous!

You can only order 8 items at a time, you can make two orders within minuts of eachother. Your total should be 8 orderes of 8 items.

Also, I would like to say that TI is a great company, they phoned ups, had them cancel the COD, sent a follow up to make sure I got the package, and reset my samples limits.

Nice, They seem to be a great company!

DigiKey acts as an agent for TI when they ship the chips - they drop ship for TI, so all of the paperwork is in TI's name.

Eight boxes is quite a bit..


They should just cut all opa627 and similar high priced items from their sample program. Unless of course it costs them nothing to make, who knows.


Also they seem to be reducing the number of DIP samples. They have a lot of smd parts available, but rairly dip.

Would also like to add that they switched to fedex delivery, and I have had 2 boxes arrive the day after they shipped.
