Some of the online discount houses do a decent job as well, for example electronic-goldmine ships chips on proper static foam in individual antistatic bags.
Just buy from Mouser, digi-key, et al.
QuoteJust buy from Mouser, digi-key, et al. Mouse and Digi-Key go way into the other extreme. I've received shipments where each item was in an anti-static bag (even soldering iron tips for some reason), everything was bundled into a bigger plastic bag, which was wrapped in a single layer of bubble wrap, which had an outer layer of cardboard packing material, finally placed into a box.
I know the big houses pack things properly, I've shopped on a few. Many smaller retailers do it also. But what's the problem of shipping chips to customers in their original boxes?
