• Winsource Earns a D+

    From Ricky@21:1/5 to All on Mon Jul 4 17:48:35 2022
    I found a part I needed at Winsource at a better price than the $10 I'm seeing everywhere else. The order was too large to put on one credit card, so I split it into three orders on three credit cards. They didn't try to charge tax, so that was good,
    but for whatever reason, the one order got snagged by customs, not for a import duty, but for a handling fee, which DHL piled on and added their fee for handling the handling fee.

    But Winsource never shipped the other two orders. I could see in the qty available after my order, that the parts had been deducted from inventory. When I sent emails directly or messages through their web site, I received no replies. After a few days
    of that, I said if they didn't ship, I would cancel the orders. They replied by canceling the orders.

    WTF???!!!

    Happy ending, though. I found parts at Rochester at about half the price. I assume their parts will work like TI parts. Rochester makes their own, right, second source?

    So, if I get the parts from Rochester in the coming week, I will give them an A+. I'm sorry they didn't have the parts to start with.

    Rochester started out reselling obsolete stock from other
    manufacturers, that basically maks them scaplers.
    I think they now also run some second-hand fabs.

    probably just leftovers from TI. Chip makers sell them the leftover junk
    that's not sliced up and packaged.

    So, if I get the parts from Rochester in the coming week, I will give
    them an A+. I'm sorry they didn't have the parts to start with.

    Even the english is fake on win-sores. Not sure what you really expected
    to happen.
