Default Re: Any more info on counterfeit Nichicons?

Has anyone else suspected lately counterfeit Nichicons from a major recommended/reliable/trusted vendor? The stenciling on these HNs doesn't look very good to me. The HZs don't look a lot better. Bungs all look OK. The 1800 HNs were bought last November and no longer stocked. The 820s were just bought, as were the 680s. The normal looking HMs were bought 6 months ago, but currently listed as scheduled EOL.
