Honeywell PTM7950 - Corn Electronics @NewEgg

https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?d=ptm7950

Does anyone know if this vendor's Honeywell is legit. From the thumbnails, compared to the images I've seen of supposedly legit stuff, I'm going to guess this is a knock-off from China. Does anyone know? The prices are competitive with LTT right now, IIRC.

I've been using computers since around 1978, started learning programming in 1980 on Apple IIs, started learning about hardware in 1990, ran a BBS from 1990-95, built my first Windows PC around 2000, taught myself malware removal starting in 2005 (also learned on Bleeping Computer), learned web dev starting in 2017, and I think I can fill a thimble with all that knowledge. 😉 I'm not an expert, which is why I keep investigating the answers that others give to try and improve my knowledge, so feel free to double-check the advice I give.

My phone's auto-correct is named Otto Rong.🤪😂

Can't say but there's an old saying about something being too good to be true.

 

If you do want to try it I think you'll find it cheaper on Amazon.

If you're interested in a product please download and read the manual first.

Don't forget to tag or quote in your reply if you want me to know you've answered or have another question.

If you're going to buy from overseas, might as well buy Thermalright's PTM7950 competitor directly from Aliexpress. At least you know you're going to get a legit Thermalright product.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say the people blurring out the Honeywell logo on their product page probably aren't legitimate resellers. Just a hunch.

You can try calling them up and asking about it.

 

Alternatively, it's available here too: https://www.moddiy.com/products/PTM7950-SP-Super-Highly-Thermally-Conductive-PCM-Pad.html

That's how Honeywell words it on their datasheet.

I'm a bit confused why you wrote TR when that's an HW product...?

Too sleepy, so I misunderstood. xD
