Default Recommended Mouser Electronics

Have to just say I placed an order with Mouser and was quite surprised how quick they turned around the order. Placed 4 hours ago and already received the shipping notification.

Brilliant

Good to know, I am going to place an order for some LND150 and other MOSFETs for a couple of Swenson regulators and some CCS.

I wonder if they keep stock in the UK or ship orders direct from the US? If they do ship from the US I wonder if I will get stung for import duty.

Cheers Matt

A few weeks ago I placed an order ~4pm and received it the next day! Of course it helps to live in Texas.

Of course. From what I can tell they are pretty much the US eqivivalent of our RS.
The only place I can find many obscure components (at least here) is Mouser.
I think its great that they have a UK website, I am probably really late realising this. I will use them whenever I cant find something here.

Cheers Matt

Mouser have a UK office and ship from the US; it is buried away in their "small print"

Be very careful when ordering items such as transformers - even small ones. I got stung for carriage that was more than the value of the item and there is import duty and VAT - not such a good deal after all.

For the UK, RS and Farnell are about the best.

It was even better when local non-professionals could order and then pick-up, thereby saving the cost of shipping.

Exactly! Get back to us when you have the parts in hand and know the final tally.

Mouser and Digi Key (DK) both strive to ship everything they can the same day you place the order. Both tend to be very similar in price as well (although they don't both carry all the same things). I like Dk's search capabilities better but Mouser lets you sort by price (and DK doesn't) which can be handy.

Mouser tends to have a few more tweak audiophile parts, like Wima caps but DK has some lines Mouser doesn't have like the Elna "Silk" audio electrolytics.

I live in Belgium and even I place an order with Mouser from time to time. I like the fact that they do small quantities, have a huge selection, and sell to people who are not VAT registered.

I always make sure I get a large enough order together to get free shipping ($75 I think).

Of course I'll often pay VAT and import duties, but I factor that in from the start...
