what's up with futurelec??
« on: June 28, 2012, 08:19:26 AM »
I ordered some parts almost 15 days agao I think and it still hasn't arrived? Do they normally take this long? I useually use tayda but they don't  have the multilayered ceramics

they can take VERY long. it once took 4 weeks for me to get my order. I haven't ordered from them in a while, but if I remember correctly, if they are out of something you ordered, i think they hold your order until the get it? But, I would never expect to get a package from then in under 3 weeks.

I don't order from them anymore, but did a ton when I first started a couple years ago.

Someone, please correct me if I'm wrong about what I said above.

sounds right according to what I've heard.  I would email them to check on the status.

I got an email claiming it was dispatched. And said 7-10 days. Where else can I get the caps?? I'm way to impatient for this.

They call them "monolithic" in the menu. http://www.taydaelectronics.com/capacitors/monolithic-ceramic-capacitor.html
