      Bought NPN pack, got PNPs

        Comments about RadioShack® NPN Transistors (15-Pack):

        As others are reporting, I bought the NPN pack and instead got the PNP pack. I live close to my local RS and was going to return it, but decided to keep it as I'm going to need PNPs too. I went back to the store to get NPNs, but they were out of them.

        So I'm just going to order them from a well-known online electronics retailer, for around 1/4 the price per piece, as there's no alternative to RS in my area and I don't feel like driving from RS to RS looking for an in-stock set and then having to do the magnifying glass thing to make sure I'm getting the NPNs.

        RS might want to take another look at its quality control process.

                Comments about RadioShack® NPN Transistors (15-Pack):

                I had none of the bad experiences reported by others. My package of NPNs were exactly as advertised on the website and exactly as marked on the package. I checked the labelling of each transistor and got exactly what I expected. I have used only one from the package in a low-demand, very simple circuit, but it works exactly as expected.

                I would like to thank all those who shared their negative experiences with us, though. It motivated me to be much more vigilant during the purchase process in an effort to avoid the problems they encountered.

                      I picked up a 15 transistor pack today, and for some reason went to the web site and read these other reviews. Sure enough - got my magnifying glass out and none of the expected NPN types were in there - all PNP's! The store is not far, but I should not have to go back to correct a [$] item. Annoying.

                            Picked up the multipack to save some coin and ended up with 2N2907 (PNP) instead of the listed 2N2222 (NPN). I local purchased to support the store but will consider online purchases in the future. Others have had the same issue. RS needs to pay attention to the little thing and fix these type of problems.

                                  I am sick and tired of getting products that are labelled differently on the packaging. No I can't bring a reading glass and read thru the packages, the tiny printing on the transisitors,
                                  and I shouldn't have too! I should be able to confidently buy what the package says. Every now and then, things happen. But not this often. Bought 2 packages of NPN and PNP general purpose transistors at the radio shack store 35 miles away. Every dang one of them was pnp transistors, and I can't drive another 70 miles round trip to exchange them. This has happened before and I have complained to the manager time after time. It just happens too often on these transistor and diode packs. Radio Shack, get it right!! Read the reviews occasionally and see what people are unhappy about... I'll order my stuff on line in the future. RS either doesn't bother or just dont care...

                                    Comments about RadioShack® NPN Transistors (15-Pack):

                                    Double check the pin out that's listed on the package. It was listed the opposite of what it was and cost me extra time to trouble shoot the device that I made. Otherwise the variety and quantity of each type of transistor was correct. I used the 2N3904 type to build a NPN Fuzz Face clone. After de-soldering and re-installing the transistors, due to the mislabeled pkg., the pedal works fine and sounds surprisingly excellent. I initially planned on using some NOS BC108's or BC109's like the original Silicon Fuzz Face of the late 60's, but will leave these in and build another for comparison. The next pedal will have sockets for the transistor's and I'll try the 2N2222A's and 2N4401's that were included in the package as well.

                                              Unlike the PNP transistor pack, this one tells it like it is. You get 5x2222, 5x3904 and 5x4401 transistors. It says accurately on the bag and also on the web site. But - and this is a big one, be sure to down load your own data sheets and double check the pin out diagrams to be sure you have it right. Obviously, these are surplus and bargain units so you need to do your home work. They are quality parts, no doubt. But, they can have some surprises if you are not careful.

                                              40 years as a technician doing component level troubleshooting and repair. I have used Radio Shack, or Allied as I believe it once was, off and on the entire time. I do recommend RS but I also recommend people be more careful in reading the label. You get what you pick and as far as I am concerned the store is not responsible if you mistake the label. Good general purpose NPN small signal transistors, used as preamp, switching and discreet flip flops, relay driver, LED driver..... among many other uses.
