Yeah, the thing I liked was an assortment of the more common parts in a nice little tackle box type tray. It really helps me keep everything neat and organized so I can find it later and can tell at a glance what I need to order from mouser and digikey. I guess I have been very lucky so far because all of the stuff I have recieved is in spec and genuine components. I am aware that knock offs and empty shell fakes are a common ploy for parts from china and asia. Thanks a bunch and hope to see more of you in the forums. Welcome to the club!!!
