I am basically retired these days, and not really involved with
electronics like I use to be.
Just cruising!

However this Jaycar blatant rip off was brought to my attention,
and I knew I had to do something about it.

Have a look at the youtube video, comments very welcome.

Cheers Don...


**Another good reason to avoid Jaycar whenever possible. Disgusting.

Seconded. I used to use them often before I knew better but now they
are a very last resort for time-sensitive items that need to
over-rule prefernces.
It's the only *local* option here but I may do a lot more mail order
in the future and give Jaycar a big miss.


Likewise, there is nowhere else I can buy locally. I've started buying mixed
packs of components (as well as selected items) from AliExpress so I'm less
likely to need to go to Jaycar for anything at all.

Thanks for that link Don. I've rung and spoken to Jaycar and the guy
told me they've been flooded with complaints and links about their
apparent theft of intellectual property and their marketing people are
sorting out a response. Perhaps there's another side to the story but
I bet I'm not going to like Jaycar's version.

Cheers Bruce.

As the video explains this seems to be routine for Jaycar. The only
thing I can do about it is to boycott Jaycar. Is there a comparable
shop in Melbourne's Eastern suburbs?

If you don't like Jaycar, the other chain is Altroics,


That name is a rip off of Altronics!

Try Semtronics Pty Ltd in Nunawading
(I have no association with them -just a happy customer)
