Default Re: Replacing Capacitors in Sega (and other) Consoles

Pretty much concur. FC (like Nichicon PW or UCC/NCC LXZ) is low impedance, but not extremely so. OTOH, it's also a long life series (ala PW and LXZ; some of the others omp cited are 1000 and 2000 hour series), which may be a very useful characteristic.

Power Supplies should be boring: No loud noises, no bright flashes, and no bad smells.

To kill personal responsibility, initiative or success, punish it by taxing it. To encourage irresponsibility, improvidence, dependence and failure, reward it by subsidizing it.
