Maplin Electronics in administration

Sad for the staff but not really a surprise.

Vastly overpriced cables and components and shelves filled with Chinese tat no-one wanted. Also famous for having last years tech at higher prices than the new stuff. Double the price for SSDs and memory sticks .... I could go on.

I went in last week with a circuit board and schematic to try and get replacement diodes, and no-one could help me. Sorry mate, nobody that works here knows anything about electronics. Well you had better change the sign above your door then!

Looks like Amazon, eBay and CPC Farnell have won then.
