buying ICs on ebay

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I've seen that a lot of you buy stuff on ebay, there are really good prices there (we have a local version here but it's not that great). I was looking around the electronics section and there are a lot of nice and cheap ICs, maybe too cheap... :eh: I'm concerned about losing my money buying a bunch of counterfeit parts. So, have you got any advice or some tips in order to avoid this kind of issues? should I buy semiconductors there?

And in case you ask me; why ebay instead of digikey, arrow, etc...? It's only because it has much cheaper (or even free!) shipping costs.
