Replacement 34401a VFD displays
« on: January 14, 2014, 03:35:45 am »
Anyone have any experience buying replacement 34401a VFD displays from ebay? I found this listing on ebay: eBay auction: #251169866676 but thought I'd check and see if anyone has had any horror stories or endorsements to share before I pull the trigger and order?

I brought one of these last year and they did a very poor job on packaging it. The package got crushed in transit and the legs were horribly mangled. Luckily it didn't affect the glass to metal seal and after a lot of careful manipulation I was able to straighten them out and fit to the unit. I raised a case with eBay and got most of my money back but it was unnecessary hassle.

You don't know 'til you try!
