  1. My status: Anxiety about ordering from eBay. Anyone else have that, or should I not worry?

      It might just depend on what you're ordering.  I've had better luck with e-bay than Amazon over the years.  Amazon's been charging me for an item (a textbook, of some sort?), and I keep calling them to take the charge off.  They take it off, and a couple months later it shows right back up again.  This time, I'm just going to let it go, and hope it goes away.  We'll see.  Honestly, I'm about 100% done with Amazon.  Too many bad experiences, but that's not what you asked about.  Over the last 3 weeks, I've been having terrible experiences on e-bay.  Ordered some stuff for my mom, she paid me for it, it's been 3 weeks, and neither item has been delivered (different sellers).  I've been refunded for both.  Also, bought an item Tuesday with GUARANTEED delivery by last Friday.  I've yet to see it, and tomorrow is Tuesday.  I'd go into it with this mentality:  Expect the worst, hope for the best, and maybe it will come out somewhere in between.  Also, e-bay isn't answering phones right now, and the e-mail support is hap-hazard at best.

    My online shopping is reduced to craigslist and the buy and sell section of this forum!

      I was only kidding, but I do have a few listings on e-bay right now (nothing great).  I recapped a 2600 this morning.  It's back together and I'm cleaning and testing games for it.  I have a Bally I also recapped this morning.  Waiting for the case to dry and gotta refurb some controllers.  Going to sell it with an Ulti-Multi.  Lots of PS2 games, some PS3 games, Sega Genesis games, XBOX 360 that I think works, some DS and Gameboy parts pieces and games, and some indigo Gamecube consoles.  A bunch of random crap and probably nothing too valuable.  Let me know what you might be in the market for!  :)  [shameless...]

       

      If you can fix stuff, I have a 2600 console that I can't get the difficulty switch to work on.  I switched switches, but no luck.  Would a custom chip cause that?

      Well, since we're on the topic of buying and selling, is anybody in the market for anything I have?  :D  I need some money in my PayPal so I can buy that Bally Astrovision on e-bay that's up for auction right now (not the one I'm selling).

  4. I am so sick and tired of ebay listings that state "over 10 in stock" and then when you order, they are all the sudden "out of stock" and want to substitute your order with unknown crap....funny how they are always based out of China too....what a scam!

      I had that with a US seller once on e-bay, where they didn't want to ship me what I ordered, and flat out refused to unless I told them to send me what I ordered.  They wanted to give me a "free upgrade" on some jumper cables where you could unplug one end and plug in other stuff.  Sounded like something that was destined for future problems...let alone, what would I plug in there?  Just send me what I ordered.

      At least with e-bay you can call and talk to someone or ask questions about what you are buying.

      I agree with you about Amazon.  They pretty much suck.
