Well, that's actually kind of hard to say.

My gut feeling was this is a "scambusters" thread, but that's not really a nice sounding place to collect recommendations, is it?

Perhaps it's time to rename scambusters to accomidate these types of posts?

I've suggested that before, you mods must have missed it...

I ordered an X2Pro from this company on 3-14-03, I got an email saying it was shipped via USPS Priority with tracking ( 2-3 days ) as advertised on thier website ( they charge $6.95 for shipping ). Well, it's the 19th - and I still don't have it. I called my local post office and gave them the tracking # - they told me it was shipped 1st class ( $1.38 ) and would take probably 4-5 days to get here. I wonder if it's a mistake, or normal business practice for them? Someone else said it took awhile to get to them too. I am awaiting an email from them with an answer as to why it was shipped 1st class and not priority, unless they give me some amazing answer and/or discount I don't plan on buying from them again. I'll keep everyone updated..........

The $5 price difference ( on the X2Pro ) doesn't mean much if they're making it back by gyping people on the shipping, does it? ( I.E. charging me $7 for Priority and spending $1.38 on first class ) I just wanted to give people a heads up, and see if anyone else has had this experience with them ( some might not have even noticed ). If it was an honest mistake, that's fine - I'm waiting to hear from them.

Update: Just got an email from him:

From: "console corner" <x@x.com>
To: "''" <x@x.org>
Subject: RE: Haven't recieved my order yet.......
Date: Wed, 19 Mar 2003 18:19:07 -0500

I shipped in 18 hours of your purchase, on a Saturday. If you find service & prices like that, then feel free to shop elsewhere!


?!?! A simple apology or "sorry I screwed up" would have been fine. Big deal - he shipped it out on Saturday, I paid for and the website claims Priority 2-3 day shipping is STANDARD for all orders. He could have shipped it on Monday, and if it had been shipped the way it was supposed to be I'd have had it already. I don't call it "service" when I paid $7 for 2-3 day shipping and he spent $1.38 on 4-5 ( or even longer ) day shipping. It's too bad, since I'll most likely order a few more down the road, I'll look elsewhere in the future.

I was just told by my local post office that the item was shipped 1st class ( total postage $1.38 ) and NOT Priority ( as advertised on the website ) and will take closer to 4-5 days to get here, that's why I don't have it yet. I'm guessing in the future I'll be ordering mod chips
from someone else?

My experience with them has been extremely positive. I have emailed them on several occasions and everytime have gotten responses in less than an hour. He is very responsive to his emails.

I ordered some X2Lites from him when all others were out of stock. I contacted him to verify that they were in stock and that they would be shipped via USPS Priority mail. He said they were and he would ship them that way. So, I ordered from him and 2 days later, I had my X2Lite chips at my door in a USPS Priority Mail package.

I can't speak for others, but everything I was told, he delivered on and was VERY pleasant to deal with. I really like KingMike from gotmod but the responsiveness and reliablity that I have been getting there didn't even compare to this great transaction with the console corner.

This is my experience and I am overly pleased with it.
