Being in the electronics design business, I am often ordering parts in small quantities and the best place to do that is Digi-Key. But it really annoys me that Digi-key can’t sort by price. When I’m looking for, say, a 470µF capacitor, it gives me 100 different ones to choose from, of course I just want to order the cheapest one but I end up having to read through a dozen pages to find it. Now I can use Alex Leone’s neato DigiKey Sort By Price FireFox plugin. Thanks Alex, that’s a real useful tool!PS. I actually searched for a 470µF capacitor just now, there are 491 different ones ranging from $1.34 right up to $98.10 – that last one must be gold plated with gem-quality emerald as the dielectric!
UPDATE: Digi-key now has sort-by-price on it’s website. I guess they must have listened to their customers.
