        They just work, and the price is good also, where can you find ten switching diodes as 8pm on a saturday?

        I read a user complained not getting 1n914s. 1n4148 is a better equivalent to the 914. I have replaced 914s with 4148s no problems at all. 4148 has a bit higher forward current limit than 914s other than that they are the same.

        enjoy!

            Some people don't know that 914s and 4148s are the same. I thought it was funny that someone said they didn't get any 914s only 4148s. Don't forget these are not for high power. And they will pop if you hit them with too much amperage.

              Comments about RadioShack 1N914/4148-Type Diode:

              These guys work just as well as when I bought them about 20 years ago. One of the few 'pillars' of electronics, these will probably be around for another 100 years, maybe more. :) So great that local RS stores carry them, and even though they might be more than ordering online, the convenience is hard to argue against.

              Just remember that these aren't 'power' diodes. Much more than a few hundred milliamps of forward current, and they WILL pop. Spring for the 1N400x series if you need more forward current (up to 1A), or possibly one of the larger diodes RS carries if you need even more.

              Before anyone else publicly embarrasses themselves over the fact that the package contains 'only' 1N4148 diodes, look closely at the description, then look at a data sheet for the item(s):
              fairchildsemi.com/ds/1N/1N4148.pdf

              tl;dr THEY ARE EQUIVALENTS!

              The only complaint I have about this item is that the leads were quite twisted, and therefore work-hardened. So much, in fact, that a few were rendered unusable in my application (an amplifier with point-to-point connections, and really wide spacing for the through-holes). Oh well, only a couple out of the bunch being messed up? I can live with that.

                  Didn't seven contain any 1N914s, which is what I needed.

                  Why do we put up with the shack!

                      I have to agree with James S.: It's somewhat difficult to untangle and straighten the leads on these. Also the papery strips holding them together left some sticky residue on the leads. I'd prefer to have them loose in the package like some of the other diode packs.
