I've been running into tolerance issues with these resistors. Here's an example: A 680k resistor reading at 734k. On the high-side of 1%, this resistor should be reading at 687k. Now if the product stated 10% tolerance, we'd be alright.
I'm also not a fan of how flimsy the leads are coming from the resistor. Looks like the adage "too good to be true" may hold weight here.
I've gone through the tedious task of measuring each of the 86 values in this set and here are my results:
470 ohm - 2% variance
1.5k ohm - 2% variance
100k ohm - 2% variance
270k ohm - 2% variance
470k ohm - 3% variance
330k ohm - 10% variance
680k ohm - 10% variance
5.6M ohm - 30% variance (only one of the resistors read this high, the others hit 1% as expected)
The 2% variance, while out of spec, shouldn't be a concern. The 330k and 680k, however, are way off. One of the 5.6M resistors read a whopping 30% off. I'm wondering if there's quality control issues from this batch.
Joe has offered to replace the sets that are out of range. I appreciate this greatly. It is more important to me in dealing with a business to see that the business cares about its product than getting a faulty item. In this case, I'd like to see the new batch arrive with the thicker leads as promised and with greater QC. Also, again, higher wattage sets!
If you plan on building circuits regularly, your best bet is to buy an assortment such as what "Joe Knows Electronics" has put together here. Certainly it will save you time when you're working through some Fritzing diagram or schematic and you find you're missing one resistor to complete your project. What this Amazon vendor has done is really convenient for the "Maker" because you get an organized, bagged, tagged, and quality set of 1/4W resistors that will pretty much represent anything you'll need for low-wattage IC / digital circuit projects.
Good job, "Joe," and thanks for making my Amazon Prime shopping experience more worthwhile!
Joe knows what I needed in putting this collection together. It's like my workplace collections only much better. All the standard values, a neatly labeled "bin" (envelope) for each, and enough quantities of each to last me quite a while. The much better parts are having it all a very compact package (unlike the workplace collections) and being able to design something without having to try to make it fit the the odd values I might happen to have (unlike even my best past home collection). The 1/4 W size happens to more than meet almost all of my needs.
That's where this kit comes into place... There's even 0ohm resistors in here, just in case you need ajumper that has a 5 bar color code. OK, well the 0ohm is only one bar... but still! It's within 1%!
All joking aside, this is a great kit for the value, especially if you find yourself stymied because you're missing a more esoteric value.
Anyway, I would find great value in a 5% kit as others have mentioned. For general use and design, you don't want to be using the 1%, because you're potentially setting yourself up for a surprise later. You rarely absolutely need the 1%, and if your design ever goes to production, you now have to consider potential widened tolerances when using a more cost effective 5%. Better to just design and breadboard with the 5% upfront.
