Farnell Did It Again...


As mentioned in my previous blog, I bought a tube of 22 pcs of PIC16F690 for less than RM85. As I indicated, PIC16F690 has very similar functionality with PIC16F88. However, the price was 75% cheaper than PIC16F88 (RM85/22 vs RM336/25). Well, Farnell revised the price today to RM242 for tube of 22. Previously, I also bought a tube of 25pcs of PIC16F88 for RM150 and a week later, Farnell revised it to the current price of RM336 for 25pcs. Hmmm... maybe I should have kept my mouth shut...

Moral of the story... if you see something really cheap at Farnell, it probably is. So, if you want it, buy it quick... before they revise the price upward...
