buying electronics on ebay

There are many sellers for electronic components on ebay. Many of these are located in the far east: PR China, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia. Here I will place my personal whitelist and my personal blacklist covering some of these sellers. These lists are only based on my personal experience – your mileage may vary. However, my personal experience suggest not to consider any ebay seller with a rating below 98.5% positive feedback.
