I've ordered this item from this seller before and they were definitely Panasonics - although they did specifically say Panasonic in the auction title the last time I ordered, which was maybe a year and a half ago. But it's the same photo and same description so I'd say it's worth the risk.

I just thought they had stopped selling them since I always searched for them by "Panasonic 1uF".

$8 per 100 is a good deal for any 1uF film cap, honestly, even if they aren't Panasonic.

I wrote them asking about the brand and got this answer:

"Shanghai,
EBAY cannot sell brand"

I think I'll order a few and compare them against the Panasonic I already have

We get some panasonics from ebay from time to time that are likely not real panas. The colouring is sometimes a little different. But never had any bother with any of them.

ordered some from 1nF to 1uF  :o 
I'll try to compare them whith those I already have at home.

They should be usefull for prototyping anyway

I've also contacted them, I am thinking of buying larger amount from them..
Please report what do you think about them and it would be good if you could measure them..
