Have you ever received an IC in a worse condition?

Should I be mentioning the seller for people to avoid?

It looks like someone squashed it as it tried to escape.

Yup! I've had one delivered like that. After informing the seller of the damage and mentioning the fact that there was no antistatic precautions - the reply was "I don't care" :shock: He received a very negative feedback detailing why. Unbelievable!

The seller offered me a part refund if it still worked after straightening the pins or a full refund if it didn't. Once I stopped laughing I declined the offer and asked for a return address.

Hi,

an Atom Colour with some stuff but in a for me unknown box, label & foam parts... :o

Does anyone recognise/recall this type of box? :-k

The label on the side says: ATOM FAMILY PACK

Greetings, Wim... :-)
