TAM arrived, and it's not pretty


Recommended Posts

I'd be so disappointed to come across something like that.  You'd think any seller these days hocking stuff on eBay would have at least some idea of basic packing.  Take some pics of the poor packaging and hopefully you will get your money back and keep the TAM ...  Even better, then you could source a replacement CD door and sub case and all would be well again, hopefully.  I'm assuming the Bose sub will sound horrible as it's not a sealed unit anymore.

Yep, that is ENTIRELY unacceptable "packaging", and ownership lies squarely in the court of the seller, not the shipping company... even handled like eggshells, the machine would have broken just from movement during transport, due to lack of any packaging in the box. This completely useless moron deserves to be held to acount for his sheer laziness and failure to meet his obligation as a seller. You paid for a working and complete machine, and you got a splintered wreck, due to the sellers lack of care alone, so as such I would say compensation is in order for the product you realistically did not receive.

eBay will quickly snatch that potential buck away from the greedy outstretched hands of this expectant miscreant. [:)]]'> 

100% feedback for 11 transactions translates into 83% of 12, a significant kaibosh put on the next sale attempt.  [}:)]]'>

 

Incredibly disappointing though, I feel your loss.

Anyone who has been in this game for any length of time, has gotten a similarly treated item.  I cannot imagine packing something like that, and especially with something like a TAM  -  what a sad situation.  I have had good, end results with eBay/Paypal in situations like this (as a buyer), so I hope things turn out for you as well.

Any update on what the seller has said?

 

Update:

 

After a few days of sneering at it, I decided to fire it up and see if it still worked. To my great surprise, it started right up, and the screen even comes on (which the auction said it didn't). It's running OS 9.1 with 64 MB of RAM and an upgraded 10 GB hard drive.

 

The seller finally got back to me this afternoon, and offered me $250 back. I'm a little torn because at this point, finding a new Bose base and CD-ROM door is going to take several years. But finding an affordable TAM could take even longer. 

 
What would you guys do?
