Usually I am happy to import from China for a large amount of what is sold on this site.
I could import ‘ULN2803’ ICs from China for 1/10 of the price and sell them. And they might be genuine however they might also be Counterfeit, i.e. fake / remarked, recycled lessor parts
When repairing Pinball boards, given the effort involved in identifying an issue, making the repair, (and considering the additional risk to trace damage when doing rework on these boards), I only put electronic components into my machines where I have some certainty of the supply chain
So, we import these components from a large top tier USA distributor who purchases directly from the manufacturer
