68882 fpu from China

Hi.

I am looking at buying a 68882 fpu and a crystal for my accelerator. Has any one had any experience with buying them from China/Hong Kong?? They appear very cheap on ebay and some with free international posting (Under $10NZD £5.21).

Thanks

I bought five of the surface mount 68882's from here:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1pcs-MC6888...item3cc6210e1d

The first one worked, and I have not tested the others.

Thanks chue. It makes sense to buy more than one if they are that cheap . Do you have a source for crystals?

For older electronic components, I usually buy from highly rated sellers on Ebay. If pricing is cheap enough I figure it is ok to risk it.

I usually buy more than one of each component to reduce the likelihood of getting a bad one. That and my soldering ability is less than stellar

Not sure about the FPU quality, but shipping from China is very cheap because of international postage agreements, it is basically a subsidy for China and many other countries.

I bought from these guys and didn't have any problems. Recommended to some friends and they had a positive experience also.
