    I can't believe how hard these are to find!

    They used to be like 50 cents a piece and places had 1000s of them.

    Where are you guys buying yours these days?
    Assume an order of 100.

    I thought 120s were replacements and they are everywhere.

    The same could be said for just about any component.

    I bought a bunch of Tip102’s on eBay like a year back. These were obvious counterfeit. They would work for a day and then blow.

    Trust me, it took like 4 blown transistors before o figured out these were counterfeit. It’s not worth the savings. Buy from reputable sources for sure.
