I just noticed that it changed the names of the parts that I ordered. but the part #s are the ones I ordered.
The MTAN6419-CHRG should be a 1.90" 8x8 Bi-Color Dot Matrix. So now I don't know what I'm getting :confused:

They're going to shit their pants when they get to work in the morning. I've got a feeling we won't be getting these. It would be very cool if we did, though. I stongly suggest that everyone copy and paste that link so that they don't see a bunch of people coming from hardforum.com.

Listed in the footer of the site, and the banner says they offer free samples of all products listed in their online catalog.

I agree with jpmkm's idea of copy and pasting the url into your address bar so that we might actually get these.

[edit]In addition, he can't be wrong since he's from Kansas City :D[/edit]

These deals are meant for people who will use these components in LARGE quantities, which is why they can afford to give them 'free'. They make it back in future orders. It's not meant for case modders looking for freebies. That said, i suggest getting LEDs from the various LED sites, or off E-bay. Do a search for Chi Wing LED store and you'll find some pretty kick ass prices


I'm not scolding anyone, but i'm just saying it cause it needs to be said

Everyone got that e-mail. wait for the second one :rolleyes:

Here is the one I got:

Thank you for your interest in Marktech Optoelectronics. Please advise which product your firm will use this sample request for, and advise (1) annual usage (2) manufacturer/product name (3) estimated production start and (4) purchasing contact information related to this product development. This information is required to complete processing free-of-charge sample requests.

If this project is for personal/independant project development, these parts can be purchased from our office using a major credit card (VISA/Mastercard). Contact information is shown below. Unfortunately, we are unable to supply free-of-charge samples to independant developers, inventors, students, etc. The sheer volume of requests from these sources makes the costs of this practice too high.

Please let me know the required information above so that I can complete your sample request.

Thank you, and best regards.

Just placed an order - will edit my post to reflect wether or not it gets shipped.
your not going to get it unless you tell them "(1) annual usage (2) manufacturer/product name (3) estimated production start and (4) purchasing contact information related to this product development."

Well, I haven't gotten any email yet saying anything differently.

I think I can safely assume they're on the way?

nope. we all got e-mails conferming our orders...Unless you actually got an e-mail saying it has shiped, with a tracking number, I still don't think your getting anything.

...Unless you actually work for a manufaturing company, they wont ship.
