What's the complaint? No place to store them?

Why would anyone order samples of 1N4004? Why would anyone provide them?

Default Elna samples

I inquired about samples from Elna via the electronics co. that I work for. Their sample policy is: "You need to purchase samples, min. 1000 pcs. per item" Bummer.

I was able to get some samples from Elna a while back, I just contacted the product rep in my town and asked them if they sample components. I managed to get a few big electrolytic caps from them (4 of one value and 2 of another).

Most product reps will order samples for you from most manufacturers. They will standardly ask what the application is and what your projected requirements. I answer truthfully, We're a startup audio company prototyping an amplifier, once complete we will gauge customer reaction, if it is favorable then we may go into production with potentially 100 to 1000 units per year.

Never said I thought the mix up was a problem. Though one time I punched in the wrong part number and they sent me 100 surface mount digital comb filters. What am I going to do with 100 digital comb filters???? Ah well, at least the input pairs on the Leach I'm building will be perfectly matched.

I love engineering samples. I get 'em all the time. Then again I'm also an EE with a penchant for homebrew R&D.
