In a number of senses, yes. Expensive little things, aren't they?
I hadn't heard about those, but I wondered how long it would be
until someone made a switching brick that fit in a 78xx footprint.
It's a convenient replacement, but I don't know about paying $21
each for a 5V conversion brick that costs less than $10 in other
form factors; I'll burn a few extra watts and use a $.50 heatsink
