Great for amateur use – DIY 1/4W Resistance Metal Film Resistors (2500 PCS) Reviews

posted by gdoler on 04/27/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Large variety of values and large number of resistors of the same value. Usable for amateur use in prototype circuits or as replacement material in electronics repair. The best thing is their accuracy of 1% - can be used in sensitive circuits as well.
Cons:
Colors are a bit pale so you can not really see what the value is - red is in some cases brownish, white is gray, etc.
Other:
If you are not an expert, you will probably have to check their value with a resistance meter instead of looking at color code.
Bottomline:
Great price for what you get. Recommended!
