"Bad capacitors" site: Interesting read
« on: July 20, 2013, 04:37:24 AM »
I just became aware of the site www.badcaps.net . Interesting read.

It is devoted to brands of poor capacitors, and these guys don't mince words. Included is a list of manufacturers with whose products folks had poor experiences over the years. Not unexpectedly it is mostly devoted to the computer industry, but we all use capacitors at some time. Good products are also listed.

I don't see too many poor brands available on the home front, but one never knows. There is hardly anything these days which does not find its way into the phoney market.
