They arrived in less than 5 days from my order. If you order them in larger quantities, the unit is 48 pieces. (2*48+5=101, and I needed 100.) Note that you're more likely to get the chips if you order them to a company address. Note that this is not the only company that has MAX232 clones. Too bad nobody hasn't started making AVR clones yet. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
