User Experience:
I was contacted by email, after posting requirements on HK Inventory, seller had good prices and availability of parts. Placed some order orders, packaging looked original, part markings were ok. After half a year and several more orders, end customers began to complain about quality of the parts. Turns out a big percentage of the ordered parts are counterfeit/substandard quality. Seller delayed taking care of the complaints, contact was lost. Suppliers address in France is fake, probably operating from Hong Kong. Beneficiary of the payments were they “overseas” company AECO international electronics. We are actually going to sue them and reported the company to HK police.

User Recommendations:
Always do a background check and ask for references. Never listen to any excuses. Check the parts carefully, use third party inspection.

  1. Unfortunately I didn’t read this post before buying from Advanced Element Group. We also made an order for IC because they got stock of this component and mlt was to long. Fortunately before placing a second order we recogniste that the inintal received order are 100% faked componets without function.
    We lost around 6000 USD for the components + another 4000 USd for reworking + 100% extra charges for buying this component in rush from a broker.

    Please don’t buy from this supplier!!
