100W Aluminum Power Metal Shell Case Wirewound Resistor ±5% 0.1R 0.5R 1R 2R 6R 8R 10R 20R 100R 1K ohm Aluminium Shell Resistor – Dummy load project (WHL #56)

Something very basic for today: Resistors. Yaay. :lol:

I was tasked with troubleshooting a Blu-Ray player that cut the sound a few minutes into movies repeatedly. Sounds like a thermal issue to me, and after the local electronics shop grabbed 35 bucks for an “inspection”, yielding a “motherboard issue” which makes this Samsung heap of sh.. a total loss, it was given to me for a last look into it, before it was tossed. Of course the owner would never buy a Samsung player again, as this high-end model played Blu-Rays just fine, but does refuse to do so with double-layer DVDs, which his previous Samsung DVD player was absolutely capable of.

Breadboard friendly Four Decade Programmable Resistor Board, 1%, 1/4W, KIT (WHL #25)

Got some more Open Hardware today! Not mine, though…it’s a four decade resistor adapter from luftek, who apparently comes from Slovenia. He has a github repository for his project called Dekada if you want to check it out (literal git checkout is also possible :) ). I happened to buy Version 0.1 back in September 2016 for dirt-cheap 1.99 USD per unit – I bought two pieces via eBay, directly from luftek. Unlike the Wan Hung Lo guys, we in Europe generally have to pay a reasonable amount of money for postage…in this case 3.98 […]


0805 SMD Resistor,1% 123 valuesX10pcs=1230pcs,Chip Resistor Electronic Components Package, Resistor Samples kit (WHL #10)

10 Posts, and I haven’t overtaken Dave Jones in popularity yet. I’m clearly doing something wrong! Maybe I should change something…what about “let’s not complain”…for today? ;)

Really, I cannot gripe about today’s review item even though it actually is pretty far away from advertised. I have ordered a set of 0805 SMD resistors via AliExpress for the extremely high price of 3.87 Euros including shipping (that was actually back in January 2016 – stuff piles up!).

Sure, entire reels of 0805 resistors cost measly 10 Euros for 5000 pieces (1%), that’s next to nothing per unit. […]
