Just some feedback on vendor speeds. recently ordered parts from multiple vendors (Mouser, Pololu, Phoenix connectors, Digikey, Jameco and Tayda). All the packages arrived quite quickly, except Tayda. I had previously given Tayda good marks in a post I made here (their prices certainly are good). But this time, I’m sorry to say, things are going quite slowly. They have posted a USPS tracking number but the package is actually shipping from overseas (Thailand I believe?) and the tracking information doesn’t even start to show until the package gets to the US. I placed the order on 5/25 and it’s still not even in the US postal system.
In this case the few bucks I saved don’t justify the delay. lesson learned.
So just for closure the order from Tayda arrived today, 2 weeks + 1 day after I placed the order. They apparently use someone in Colorado to do the US shipping of the package, which I believe is assembled in Thailand.
I still like them for run of the mill components and passive parts. Just be sure to allow plenty of time for the order..

Well, as far as shipping goes that’s “US enough” for me. They (Tayda, whomever) are going to expedite that single-ship big-box and make sure that it doesn’t get hung up somewhere. After that you’re at the usual mercies of USPS anyway. Two thumbs way up compared to the usual small-packet shipping from east’ish Asia to the US, even when paying a formal shipping cost. Small-packet shipping is like a lottery ticket without the big payoff … just the eventual (usually) arrival at the tender mercies of the USPS.
