Just wondering if anyone has had any experiences with GameBuy?

They seem to be a little cheaper... I'm looking to probably purchase a Matrix from them. Thanks for your feeback!

I got my order in less than a week. The order shipped the day after I ordered it. I highly reccomend them if you need a matrix and don't want to wait a month for easybuy

Mod chip vendors are only as good as there last shipment. its a pity there is no eBay style feedback ratings to keep them in check.

But I havet read anything bad about Gamebuy.com cool.gif

Ordered from them on Thursday night (4/10/2003). The site said the Matrix shipped on 4/11. I sent them an email on the 11th to ask what the shipped on the 11th meant, if it means the shipment to them was on the 11th or they were shipping on the 11th. Never got a response.

Today (4/14) I went to the site and noticed the status was updated to 14-17 and that this was the estimated time the manufacturer was going to ship to them... meaning I prolly won't see my chip untill some time in March.

I noticed that the site said they had X2 Pro chips in, so I sent an email asking if they would change my order and ship today. I am not expecting a reply. Lucky for me I bought the extra protection from PayPal and will use it tomorrow if I do not get a response today.

Ill keep ya posted bro! beerchug.gif

well I got no reply to my email, so I used paypals refund option and got my refund within 2-3 hours. Dunno if the guy is a scammer or just having a run of bad luck with his supplier. Either way there is no excuse for not answering emails from your customers.

Buyer Beware.

For anybody that did order from them how long did it take to get a reply email with tracking #? It says on their website it takes a couple of hours but I havn't received 1 and it's been about 18hours. I ordered the x2pro since it says on their website that it's in stock.

Hello fellow posters,

I placed an order for an Xodus Matrix on 4/16/2003 and have yet to receive any confirmation e-mails or tracking numbers. I sent an e-mail to sales@gamebuy.com 4/17/2003 with a request for a status update and have yet (4/18/2003) to receive any reply. I will give it a few more days and will then take some action with PayPal.

Even though the site's "news flash" claims that the Matrix chips are now in (4/17/2003), the seller has still not replied to my original e-mail asking for a status update and now the second e-mail I sent (4/18/2003) asking for a status update.

I will post more progress soon.

Hi Forumers,

I'm happy to report some progress on my order. I have received a Canada Post (CP) tracking number today and when tracked the CP website reports that they received my shipment 4/17/2003. Gamebuy.com claims that shipping with Express Mail (my pick) takes 5-8 days to the US. So the latest that I'm expecting my Matrix is 4/25/2003, next Friday. I will keep you guys updated.

Acetaminophen,

Their Credit Card system doesn't work. Pay with PayPal.

Hey lambdaswerve,

Try sending an e-mail to sales@gamebuy.com asking for a tracking number. After the second e-mail I sent to that address I received a reply soon after. Give it a try, maybe you'll get lucky like I did.
