Electrical Components

Is there a specific website that you purchase all of your electrical components from? Components being all the various chips and capacitors your replace in your videos. Do you purchase these or are they parts from other devices? Thanks!

I buy from various places…anything I use a lot of I try to get from China, anything I only need a few of or need right away I usually get from eBay and anything that I can’t find anywhere else I pull from donor boards.

Is Alibaba usually where you buy from?

I found i can get the PS4 IC Encoder chips for $1 a piece on Alibaba, as apposed to $15-$20 on eBay. Is that too good to be true? Im afraid ill buy them, wait a month to get them, and none of them will work.

Thanks for your time!
