Default Futurlec? Anyone?

Has anyone done business with an online electronics supply company called Futurlec ???

I sure would like a little feedback from someone that has some first hand knowledge about them; conscientious and/or scrupulous wise.

I was wondering about this place myself...
I know that in previous threads, Cherhit recommended futurelec to Jean. Jean said that he ordered some stuff from them...

I have ordered bunch of resistors and caps from them a number of times. Last time I ordered some bd139 and bd140 transistors. Shipping is a little slow with regular shipping but everything arrived like it was ordered.

Thank you for the input. I dislike doing business with a company that does not list a phone number, however, I think I might give them a try. Their prices are good and low .... very low .... maybe too low. Why are their prices so low?

Back on the fence again.

If I give them a try I will update this thread one way or the other , just for posterity's sake.

Either way, thanks again and happy trails.

Default Used them last month

They listed an address in New York, but the components actually arrived from Thailand. Everything came ok and the prices were good, but it took a week longer than I expected. And that's without any customs holdups. I guess if there were problems, it might take longer...

Cheers, BC

I'v used futurlec many times, and never had any problems except for one order which I made six months ago and apparently got lost, I was assured it was being resent by their sales manager Allen Bonard at the end of last year but I haven't received it yet and now he no longer seems to be replying me emails.

Now I am scanning the net for some kind of contact number.

I bought from them....waited two weeks for my parts. When I got nothing, I send a WTF email, to which they replied that there was a problem with the shipping address (they lost it).

Gave it to them, and asked why no one had bothered to call or email me of the problem. Got a politicians song and dance, but another 10 days and I had my parts.

So if you need something in a hurry....keep looking.

I ordered some parts from the once -- I got exactly what I ordered in a couple of days, no problems at all.

Guess I should have added 'YMMV'. Mine certainly did.
