    Depends what your application is, I have used run of the mill 38Khz crystals in PICmicro applications with good results.

    Read the specs. A & B are case sizes.

    Thanks for the replies. I thought I had read the specs, I was taking 3x8mm to be diameter x length, the B type doesn't actually give a size.

    If using them as a input to a T1 timer on a PIC for example, some vary slightly in the decoupling capacitor pair value.
