Default nichicon pw from Ebay ?

What do you think, these capacitors are fake? The seller says that they are 100% original, whether or not to believe him?

Completely fake if you're going by the picture.

To be on the safe side I would assume all caps coming from China are fakes.

I say purchase the caps from the Badcaps.net online super store.

PW's are Brown sleeved with White printing.
The vent stamp is Wrong; the bung is Wrong.
Absolutely fake.

PW's are not considered a "Motherboard Capacitor"

Probably yes. Make an account and see.

If you can't afford paying 8$ (i think that's the cost) for shipping to get them from Badcaps store (as it's in US), there are good stores in Europe, like Farnell or RS-Online.

Farnell charges me in Romania about 6$ to ship any package through UPS, no matter how big it is... it's quite nice.
RS-Online charges 5 euro (well, i order on rs-online, rs-online delivers the package to some company in the country they have agreement with and then this company sends the package through courier to me for 5 euro)

If you only need a couple of capacitors I don't know, I could send you some if I have them and you can pay me through paypal the online price and about 2$ for stamps.

ps. the original nichicon pw look like this: http://media.digikey.com/photos/Nich...%20996-999.jpg

Thanks, I'll keep in mind your offer.
Shipping from Farnell out 20 euros, which is too expensive. I want to buy their capacitors Panasonic FR.

Wow! As fakes go, those are some of the most pathetic I've seen!
