  • I’ve dealt a lot with chinese suppliers to buy semiconductors like TV Tuners and other complex ICs. There are verification services that help you trading with those guys. They take pictures and some do test the chips for you. Since they charge you quite a lot, I developed a trick. I ask (and pay for the freight) for a few (non-paid) samples. This helps filtering through MOST of the “bad” dealers. The few that remain are those that are professionally misleading people to buy counterfeits. Against those, you gotta start asking questions here and there.
    But that’s standard procedure. Dealing in Shenzhen is a filthy business and it only gets worse. I’ve seen pictures of people loading capacitors in a box with a shovel.

  • Are there any TRUE Magjack or Pulsejack crossreferences?

No public wish lists :(
