I just buy stuff
So how did I pull a fast one again? You mean by receiving a broken system that was supposedly in excellent condition? Yeah that was quite tricky. And 68k never fixed the problem. He says he attempted a re-flow, and I just find it curious that I had the system fixed with a re-flow performed by somebody else. I also wouldn't say that the whole forum has his back, since there have been several people in this thread that either recommended a refund or partial refund. In the end, I got screwed out of an extra $100 for repairs & return shipping for a system that was supposed to be $175. Why would I recommend this seller?!
By lying about the situation.
Rob isn't gonna lose sleep over a few hundred bucks, plus if he was wrong, you would have had a refund.
There was nothing to indicate that the damage was done by him or during shipping.
I've sold TONS of stuff - its VERY hard to scratch and bust up a system like that in transit.
pre-slim PS3's are going to brick, it's just a matter of time throw it in the fucking trash, and get a slim for the love of god
I have never had any reliability issues with my fat PS3. It is completely backwards compatible with PS1 and PS2, has a hell of a lot of USB ports and other ports I will never need, 60 gig is more than enough for me, and, IMO, it looks much more stylish than the slim. Taking reliability out of the equation, why would anyone prefer a slim?
Well you can always tell if it has been opened by the security sticker and the tightness of certain screws.
At the insistence of several, I'm coming out to mention an incident that I had with MJ as well.
I purchased a 32x system from him and (foolishly) left him pos feedback on 05 September when the system arrived, safe and sound. I say foolishly, because at the time I had no way of testing the unit. It took about a month total (counting shipping) before I was able to source and receive the necessary cabling to hook it up. That was when I discovered that I had received a defective system. After testing 2 different 32x carts, and 11 different genesis carts, the best I ever got was the white Sega text to come on screen. I was reluctant to go public with the info due to the fact that 1) I'd already stated my satisfaction with a positive feedback rating, and 2) I had the system in my possession for so long before realizing that it was non-functional. Given that various people have let me know about other issues with this seller, and the fact that there was strong encouragement to do so from some other forum members, I'm bringing it up now.
