if it makes you guys feel better, I got a hold of some SF resonators and OMG they are crap, I have constant upload errors at a reasonable 19200 baud, I cant say they are off by 20% per day, but they sure as heck are not spec

but hey when you buy the cheapest garbage from china your often lucky if it works at all, luckily I got them for free so I didnt waste money on them.

It may be that they are crap, but are you sure they are not 16384MHz 16.384MHz resonators rather than 16MHz?

16384kHz, surely?

Yes, I missed out the decimal point.

Still less than 3% though.

True, but according to http://www.maxim-ic.com/app-notes/index.mvp/id/2141 there are scenarios in which a clock mismatch of more than 2% can cause problems.
