Hey folks, I was looking around for some replacement chips for the C64 and came across multiple Chinese stores on Ebay that sell allegedly new chips.
I.e. https://ebay.us/hjzipk - 6567R8, they also have CIAs, PLAs etc. and that's not the only store with those items.

Has anyone had any experience with those?

Cheers!

Thanks for your inputs folks! Not gonna risk it then.
I purchased 2 6560's for VIC 20 from this seller.



The first purchase was perfect. IC work like a charm.

The second one was DOA. The seller quickly issue full refund without any questions or hesitation. My guess is they are a HIT or MISS. The seller must know it, because in other transactions with Chinese sellers they fight and stall before issuing a refund.
