Re: Not prices

It's simple supply shortage, with a few small exceptions (scalpers),

Not scalpers, brokers. A scalper will buy and sell higher. A broker, well, just brokers stock that he thinks is somewhere. They rarely have their own stock.

From a broker you typically can get only a small quantity, and then you need to test them, which can be very complex. There is lots, really, LOTS, of fraud going on here. It's a highly risky business.

Since a broker pretty much never has stock it's pay first upfront, then hope you get them, then hope it can work. This said, their are brokers that do their own testing.

I avoid brokers by all means. Seen too many counterfeit parts. It's good when they are bad, but very bad when they are somehow work and then die in the field. And too much fraud going on, you pay, and they close down a few weeks later.
