» Where To Get Chip Samples
Article By: dammitjim
I've been searching for samples and found that it can be a pita to find shops that sell per chip and don't charge out the rear for shipping. This article will give you a consolidated list of the best places I've found to order samples from.
To avoid having to pay shipping costs multiple times I tried to find shops that stock a wide varitey of chips.
I'm not including chip costs since a difference of .20-30 on a dozen chips isn't that much of a difference. Shipping totals are for 20 chips unless otherwise indicated.
Clicking on the chip pictures will take you directly to that vendor's website. Hold your mouse over any picture for more information about that chip.
