  • Any suggestions for through-hole parts?

    I kind of prefer through-hole parts for transistors, because I expect to blow them, and I find it a lot easier to solder and replace through-hole parts. I think this is the case with a lot of people using Espruinos too, and perf-board is easy to get more of, while if you munge the prototype area on the Espruino, that's $40 for another one. Maybe I expect transistor failure without justification, because of my experience with pinball repair - my record with ULN2803's in my pinball machines is ah... lets just say I'm glad I put in a socket.
